Dare to dream big

Joyce is a Financial Services Director with a reputable organisation. She shared her life experiences during the recent seminar.
Ten years ago, there was riots in Indonesia. For safety reason, her parents sent her here to further her studies.
The parents needed to borrow money from others for Joyce's school fees and other expenses. During that period, Joyce could only spend $10 a week. She sometimes ate instant noodle. She always look at school notice board to find out the date of seminars held in school or other venues. She would attend the seminars because she could eat free food there.
One day, Joyce had a deep thought, She asked herself the following questions.
1. Can I change my destiny for me and my family?
2. How to quicky help parents to pay debt of $40000?
3. How to make my parents have a better life?
She had a clear vision after the deep thought. She had a drive, she told to herself that she must change the destiny. She finally made it, I will tell you how she could earn $1m in 4 years after her completion of her studies.
My dear friends, Do you have the vision? What is your action?

Goal setting is a powerful method for thinking about our ideal future. This will also motivate us to turn our vision of the future into reality.

The process of setting our goals helps us to choose where we want to go and achieve in life. When you know precisely what you want to achieve, you will know your focus where you have to concentrate your efforts.

Let me share you something that I read about goal setting...

Goal Setting
Powerful Written Goals In 7 Easy Steps by Gene Donohue


1. Make sure the goal you are working for is something you really want, not just something that sounds good.

2. A goal can not contradict any of your other goals.

3. Develop goals in the 6 areas of life:

Family and Home Financial and Career
Spiritual and Ethical Physical and Health
Social and Cultural Mental and Educational

4. Write your goal in the positive instead of the negative.

5. Write your goal out in complete detail.

6. By all means, make sure your goal is high enough.

Mindset. Einstein, Napoleon Hills, Buffet, Gates and many giants in the world [when I mention giants they are millionaires or philosopher] will have great mindset.

Mindset can make you achieve anything that you mind can think of. Let say you want to be rich and have a good mindset, surely you will be rich too. Just the matter of

thought -> action -> result

[taken by Trump and Kiyosaki's book]

If you just think but no action, no result. But if you don't think and just action, its a waste of time.
