A sense of accomplishment is one of the more satisfying pleasures a person can experience. To be successful, you have to work hard, be a problem solver, and use your creativity and imagination to develop new products and ideas. Each achievement along the way does not happen by accident – it is an outcome of a larger success pattern. Careful planning, thoughtful strategy, and faithful and consistent execution are all factors of success. Also, successful individuals are focused and determined. Before actions are taken, a goal must exist. Setting a goal that really motivates is not as easy as it sounds. However, you should not think of goal setting as too difficult to be worth your while.
