Goals: CHOOSE A TARGET, TAKE AIM : The Official Goal-setting Handbook

by Achievement Pyramid

In 1972, as a ten-year old boy, Jim was much different from boys of his age. While a lot of his friends were just getting to grips with education and what they wanted to do with their life, Jim did not just have a goal, he was already living his goal. Jim might only have been ten but he had a strong desire to one day be a famous comedy star and in line with his dreams, he was confident enough to send his resume to the Carol Bunnet show, positive that he was already a good enough impressionist. He didn’t get the job but the episode showed clearly his fixed aim of becoming a global screen star one day in the future.

And then, at the age of fourteen, a serious threat to his dream showed up; his father lost his job and his family lost their home. The family survived by living in a VW van parked on a relative’s lawn and young Jim had to shelve his dreams to work hard eight hours a day to support his family. Throughout all these though, his focus and desire never wavered for once and he kept his eyes on his goal. Soon, the fortunes of his family improved a little and he was able to move to focus on his goal a bit more.

At the age of fifteen, Jim got on the stage for the first time but his comedy routine bombed with the audience and was a resounding failure. Undaunted, Jim kept on practicing his routine and most importantly, believed in himself. He soon moved to Las Vegas as yet another hopeful lad trying to create a career for himself. He however had something most did not have; an unwavering belief in his goal. Each night, Jim would practice his routine and at the end of the night, he would applaud himself and write himself a fake check as payment for his performance. At the height of his playacting, Jim wrote himself a check of ten million dollars in respect of acting services rendered, dated for Thanksgiving 1995. Tall order for a teenager who seemed to have no special skills, right?

In 1994, a full year before his check was due, Jim Carrey hit success. He acted the lead role in three hit movies which grossed a total of $550million, making him the second highest grossing actor of the year behind only Tom Hanks. For Dumb and Dumber alone, Jim was paid seven million dollars. Dream achieved!!! Today, after a long and productive career, Jim Carrey is rightly considered one of the most successful comedy actors of modern times. And it all started with a goal.
As humans, we are wired naturally to try to succeed, to blaze a trail and live out our dreams. From time immemorial, success has been second only to base survival and it has dominated the consciousness of the society we live in. It seems to be the prerequisite for true happiness and fulfillment. And duly, from the day we attain full mental consciousness, we begin our race against the odds to reach utopia.
Yet, for all of our struggles, most attempts to create success fail dismally. For every success an individual records, there are millions of other individuals who are at the verge of failing. For every breakthrough, we record many setbacks and dead ends. Statistics and the odds show that every new attempt is more likely to fail than succeed. Yet, within these gloomy prospects, a caste of men has arisen undaunted by the circumstances and grown to become perennial successes. Just as startling, history has continued to furnish us with examples of individuals who trumped above all problems.

How do these notable exceptions do the unthinkable?

How do they successfully climb the mountain everyone else thought was impossible?

Why are they successful while others are not?
The reason most people never make the journey to success; simply because they do not have a goal, a destination for the journey and they remain failures.

This is what this book will give you; an opportunity to FINALLY SUCCEED by choosing your goal and allowing it to fuel your engines as you make that dash towards personal success and true joy and happiness.
