It is not position that makes the leader; it is the leader that makes the position via accurate goal setting. This is because; when it comes to identifying a leader, don’t listen to the claim of the person professing to be the leader, don’t examine his/her credentials, title, status or facial appearance but, check his/her influence which could only be exhibited through an unflinching goal setting. For the proof to true leadership which is accrued to goal setting is found in the followership.

Goals are vision with feet. Goals are set of specific, measurable steps to achieve one’s vision for life. It will deliver a leader from crisis management and help the leader to know the right direction whenever the vision seems blurred. You switch from ‘fire fighting’ to ‘fire prevention’.

The most effective goals in the history of mankind are stated in the present tense, and yet are entirely believable to be you. They are worded which make your goal now to be in the process of happening in the course of pursuing your life purpose – not that it has already been achieved, which is not believable. “I am a great leader or I am a millionaire” is stated in the present, yet it is something your conscious and subconscious mind will have difficulty to agree with. But in reality, you are struggling to pay your rent every month. Here is where the power of goal setting and positive affirmation lies; it has worked for me and millions of people out there. Once you start affirming your goal’s list positively, naturally over the time they start getting clearer and clearer with the pictures of those goals in view – and those pictures started to include some very specific step to take that will in turn guarantee the actualization of your dreams.

6 questions that will help a leader establish some long range goals over the next 10 years:

What do I want to do?

What do I want to be?

What do I want to see?

What do I want to have?

Where do I want to go?

What would I like to share?

When a man is able to have a clearer understanding about this all time questions that bring about an outstanding lifestyle then you are on your way to making impact and achieving greatness.

A man with a goal set for his/her life has a ‘yes’ face, because; they inspires their followers to greatness and greater heights. Goals are essential keys to achievement and success in life. But, it is so touching that, of only 3% of people have goals and write them down; 10% more have goals but keep them in their heads; while the rest 87% drift through life without definite goals or plans – John C. Maxwell. They do not know where they are going and allows other people to drive them through life by taking the driver’s seat of their destiny. Most importantly, the 3% accomplish from 50-100 times more during their lifetime more than the 10%.

To cap it all, goal setting is an on-going discipline which generates greater respect for the goal setter. You have to avail yourself to setting goals if you must achieve greatness and actualize your vision in life.

You will succeed and become great!
