Updated and expanded throughout with three new chapters
Written by one of the world's best-known authorities on personal achievement—his many books and audios have sold millions worldwide Brian Tracy opens this book with a story. A group of successful men got together to talk about their lives. Each of them had started from nothing many years before. As they discussed the reasons why they had managed to achieve so much in life, the wisest man among them spoke up and said that, in his estimate, "success is goals, and all else is commentary."
There is no one better equiped to write about goals than Brian Tracy, who lifted himself up from dead broke high school dropout to CEO of a worldwide company, prolific author and sought-after speaker. Based on more than 20 years of experience and research, Goals! presents Tracy's simple, powerful, and effective goal setting and goal achieving methodology that has been used by more than one million people to achieve extraordinary things.
The book begins by explaining the seven key elements of goal setting and the 12 steps that are necessary to set and accomplish goals of any size. Each chapter provides a series of practical, proven steps that individuals can use to be more effective in moving rapidly toward their chosen objectives. Tracy shows how to build your self-esteem and self-confidence, how to approach every problem or obstacle effectively, how to overcome difficulties, respond to challenges, and continue forward toward your goals, no matter what happens.
In this revised and expanded second edition Tracy has added three new chapters addressing areas in which goals can be most rewarding but also the toughest to set and keep: finances, family, and health.
Goals! breaks through the fog of contradictory ideas on goal setting and provides a proven system for achievement that you will be able to use for the rest of your life.
