Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: Creating Empowering Goals (Part 5)

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!

We have been talking about the power of creating empowering goals. We’ve talked about the different kinds of goals: the ‘‘Getting Goals,” the ‘‘Doing Goals’’ and the “Being Goals.” What must you be, so that you can do, so that you can get, so that you can give? What must you become?

Emerson said, ‘‘…that which is before us and that which is behind can never compare with that which is within us!’’ In the movie The Lion King, Mufasa says to his son, ‘‘Simba, you are more than what you have become!’’ I say that YOU are more than you think you are. Live full out and you will be amazed!
