Goal setting is a key skill for anyone who wants to be successful in life and turn their DREAMS into REALITY.

Unfortunately, most people do not set goals at all or if they do their goals do not follow a process and are more of a statement of a dream than an actual SMART goal that will motivate them and gives them a deadline for success. Thus they are very unlikely to succeed at what matters most to them.

“A goal is a dream with a deadline.”-Napoleon Hill

People who have well developed goals are much more likely to achieve them and reap the rewards of success both in their work life and in their personal life.


You will learn:

  • The benefits of goal setting and the difference between DREAMS-GOALS-REALITY.
  • How to set goals that can impact many areas of your life and the various roles you play both in your career and in your personal life.
  • Step by step learning using the SMART process so at the end of the course you will have developed a goal(s) that you can take immediate action on.

That SMART can have several variations and your instructor will share all the varieties and recommend what works best and why!

"Even though it may seem like a theoretical course, it is actually hands-on! Great contribution for those who look for self-improvement."-S. Uribe

Being great at goal setting and using the SMART process has greatly impacted my life and allowed me to be successful in many areas such as founding my own company, being a Director of Global Training & Program Development for a standards organization, University Instructor, International Public Speaker, and in my personal life as a Husband, Father, Investor, and Community Leader and I want to share this skill with you so you can enjoy great success in your own life.
