Thoughts for Thursday: Reaching Goals

Thoughts for Thursday is a new feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

Today's theme is Reaching Goals. It's still only January. Don't give up yet!

"Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work."--Stephen King, On Writing

"When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps."--Confucius

"What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals."--Henry David Thoreau

"A goal properly set is halfway reached."--Zig Ziglar

"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude."--Thomas Jefferson

"I'm a big believer in overcoming and achieving and doing things and not feeling sorry for yourself."--Drew Carey
What is your favorite quote about goals? Do you have one to add?


  1. My favorites are:

    "Do not set small goals, for small goals do not stir the blood of a man's soul." (no idea who said it originally)

    "Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal."
    --Henry Ford
