One Definition of Success
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect
of intelligent people and the affection of
children; … to appreciate beauty, to find
the best in others; to leave the world a little
better; whether by a healthy child or a garden
patch … to know even one life has breathed
easier because you have lived.
This is success.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
www.GoalSettingForStudents.com

Definition of Success #2
“Be honest and work hard to get what you want.
Don’t take shortcuts; you are only cheating
yourself in the long run.
Success is not measured by money or fame,
but by how you feel about your own goals and
accomplishments and the time and effort you
put into them.”
Willie Stargell, Baseball Hall of Fame

Why Goals Are Important?
Goal = Dream + Action Steps + Target Date
Goals provide direction, a sense of accomplishment and
help you define your growth and development.
1. Roadmap - Would you drive to Los Angeles without one?
2. Recipe – Would you make the holiday dinner without them?
Why go through life without goals?
Goals are your roadmap for a successful education and life.

Goal Setting 101
Clearly define the challenge facing you.
What issue, problem or desire
are you trying to change or achieve?
Examples of misguided challenge definitions:
Low grade in class – Teacher does not like me vs. lack of effort
Need more money –
on your part?
Quitting your job vs. talking to your boss
and doing extra work.

1. Define the Challenge Why do I want it?

3. Action Steps How will I get it?

Goal Setting 101

Action Steps and Target Date

I can and I will in your goal statement and
with your action steps
• Read your goal(s) every day
• Stretch your abilities
www.GoalSettingForStudents.com

Stretching Your Abilities
There is a big difference
between stretching
past your “comfort zone”
and setting unrealistic goals.
___________
Start with goals that stretch your capabilities
and then
build on your successes.
www.GoalSettingForStudents.com

Dreams vs. Goals
Goal Setting is like shooting an arrow.
You may want to hit the target, but
if you don’t take action – shooting the arrow –
you only have a dream.
The difference between a
dream and a goal is
ACTION.
