Goal-Setting: In Yourself Believe

By Peter Jeff
The Leadership Mints Guy

Here’s a poem to help you more fully focus on your goals.

      As the author of a book on personal leadership — Get a GRIP on your Dream—I’m always on the lookout for anything that helps me focus more on the significance of goal-setting. Hence my GRIP process of personal leadership begins with GOAL-SETTING (then evolves into Risk-taking, Initiating and Persisting).

     I ran across the following poem on GOAL-SETTING by that famous poet– Mr. or Mrs. Anonymous– that seemed to capture the meaning and purpose of goal-setting.  In fact I used to recite this poem to close each of the mentoring classes I designed and delivered for a multi-billion dollar corporation. Perhaps this GOAL-SETTING  poem will help you too stay focused on achieving your goals.


Fortunate is the person who in this life can find a purpose that can fill their days and goals to fill their mind.

The world is filled with many people, content with where they are.  Not knowing the joys success can bring, nor willing to go that far.

Yet in this world there is a need for people to lead the rest,
to rise above the average life  by giving of their best.

 Would you be the one who dares to try when challenged by the task?

  Will you strive to heights you’ve never seen or is that too much to ask ?

  This is your day, a world to win.
Great purpose to achieve.
Accept the challenge of your goals.
And  in yourself believe.
