Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: Why Set Goals?

Today’s ‘Live Better’ tip for Success is focused on helping you over come this challenging economy. It is taken from my new book, Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks. Get a copy today…you’ll be glad you did!

One powerful step to help you turn your setbacks into comebacks is to determine why you want to hit your goals. First, you need a goal. The next step is to find a compelling reason why. This will keep you going when life tries to distract you. Maybe your reason is to be able to buy your parents a home, or to be able give your children a better life than you had. Or maybe it is because someone was kind to you when you didn’t have much and you want to repay that kindness by helping others. I don’t know what your reasons may be, but I do know that people who have compelling reasons to reach their goals tend to achieve their goals more quickly.

Neitzsche said, ‘‘if you know the why of living, you can endure any how!’’ Make a decision to find your why!
