The Ladder of Success – Goal Setting
The more you seek to fulfill your goals in life, the “luck” appears in the form of opportunities.
Pursuing your goals and exploring your potential sets the direction and determines the future life.
Goals determine what you want and keep you focused on a purpose.
Personal goals are usually related to your health, your relationships, and your happiness.
Think about your lifestyle goals!
Career goals are related to what you want to accomplish with your education and career.
Think about your financial goals!
Life goals are the things you want to achieve in the long term, such as getting married, having a family, close friendships, and serving others.
Think about your values!
create a vision
Where do you see yourself in a year?
Where do you want to be in life in the next 5, 10 or 15 years?
The future is in your imagination, in what you want to be, what you would like to do and what you would like to achieve.
A vivid vision can pay big dividends to those who believe in positive expectations, regardless of adverse circumstances.

Steps needed to make a loaf of bread.
Plowing, sowing, reaping, tying sheaves, beating grain, winnowing, separating, grinding into flour, sifting, adding milk, eggs and yeast, kneading and then baking until it reaches the kitchen table.
A ladder has sections that allow people to climb to high places.
The rungs represent a series of steps (just like making a loaf of bread), to climb, one rung at a time, to reach that higher place.
Every track that is uploaded becomes a milestone.
A clear vision of your ideal future puts you on the first rung of the ladder of success.
With each step you take, you become more confident in reaching your ultimate goal.

“Ask and it will be given to you”
Because everyone who asks, receives!
Knowledge is power because it maximizes your potential.
The right knowledge gives you the confidence to make decisions based on what’s right for you, helps you avoid mistakes and get new ideas.
The objectives determine what knowledge you need.
“Seek and you shall find”
If you search you will find!
A rich farmer in ancient Greece who was dying said to his children: “My treasure is buried in the fields. If you want to be rich, dig to find it.”
After the old man’s death, the two sons dug and searched carefully, turning up the dirt in each field, but found no buried treasure.
When spring came and there was no sign of a treasure chest, they abandoned their search for the fields to be sown with corn.
Then came summer and the harvest.
And what a bountiful harvest they enjoyed!
By digging up the earth, the boys had found the riches they were looking for.
His wise father’s plan had succeeded!
“Knock and the door will be opened”
To those who knock, the door will be opened!
*to learn and improve
*to achieve your dreams
Physically, mentally, socially, intellectually and spiritually, life can be improved as long as its opportunities are taken advantage of.
coming out of adversity
We need calm.
We need courage and hope.
We need guidance and direction.
We need a light to illuminate our way.
Jesus said: “I am the Light of the world; whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the Light of life.”
The wrong values and the wrong goals lead to missed opportunities and unsolved problems.
Problems, uncertainty, and setbacks create negative emotions of being at the mercy of the unknown.
Jesus said, “If a person had even the smallest amount of genuine faith, he could tell a mountain to rise up and throw itself into the sea, and it would obey him.”
A mountain has steep, sloping sides, sharp ridges, and potential dangers, before a climber can reach the peak or summit.
A quote from Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, Inc. states: “How you climb a mountain is more important than getting to the top.”
Chouinard knows how to climb mountains.
Persist, it can transform your life!
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched. They must be felt with the heart.”
The quote reminds us that the best things come from within.
They are possible thanks to love, compassion and forgiveness.
