Developing the Skill of Setting a Target and Meeting It

“All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible.” —Orison Swett Marden


Great leaders are sharp shooters. They have developed the skill of setting a target and meeting it.

What is your target?

Life and Leadership can be simplified with a fixed aim.

Aiming is targeting.

Your aim whether in business, ministry, and relationship shows what you are expecting.

And where there are no expectations then frustrations are inevitable.

Without a fixed aim to govern what we do, nothing can be done well.

Great leaders in history are aimers.

They do nothing without an act or manner of aiming at something that defines who they are and what describes their personalities.

The skill of setting a target and meeting it requires full concentration on your target.

Concentration requires commitment. But the commitment is worth it.

God says whenever people set their imaginations on something they want to achieve, with common language, unity of focus no one can stop them (Genesis 11:6). Only God can stop what is not in line with His purpose.

Norman Vincent Peale once said, “All successful people have a goal. No one can get anywhere unless he knows where he wants to go and what he wants to be or do. ”

What do you have in your hand presently? No matter how difficult it looks, you can accomplish it with undivided fixing of your gaze.
