Techniques That Help Us Achieve Goals

Recently, we read a quote by a very wise and successful man. He said, "I am so thoroughly convinced that if we don't set goals in our life and learn how to master the techniques of living to reach our goals, we can reach a ripe old age and look back on our life, only to see that we reached but a small part of our full potential. When one learns to master the principles of setting a goal, he will then be able to make a great difference in the results he attains." (An address given by American businessman Russell Ballard to young adults in Salt Lake City, Utah)

As we thought about this quote we were struck by the importance of not only setting goals but also mastering the techniques that will help us achieve them. 4Life is dedicated to giving people the tools and training they need to achieve their goals. This is exactly what 4Life conventions, Leader in You academies, the 90 Days of Power Challenge, and even the 4Life pages on Facebook and Twitter are all about.

None of us wants to reach a "ripe old age" and realize that we did not reach our full potential. You, our incredible leaders, are truly making a great difference as you master techniques to achieve goals in your life and then help others as well. We love telling your stories on this blog. We encourage you to keep setting and reaching those goals and inspiring all of us to do the same!
