Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Aim High and Set High Goals

Aim High and Set High Goals


Aim High and Set High Goals

“No More effort is required to aim high in life,

to demand abundance and prosperity,

than is required to accept misery and poverty.”

Napoleon Hill 1883 - 1970, American Self-Help Author,

and Motivational Speaker


As I see it. . . . . . . .


Aim high and set high goals


Aim high . . . . set high goals . . . . and shoot for the moon. If you miss your target you’ll hit a star.


When you set high goals . . . . it causes you to stretch yourself out of your comfort zone . . . .  and extend yourself to reach for your goals. As you stretch yourself to reach for your goals you change as a person . . . . and will never return to your original reach.


Aim high . . . . and if you miss your goal you find yourself among the stars . . . . and you’re able to keep trying.


Aim high and set high goals . . . . and you will find yourself accomplishing great things.

I have set my goals really high, Lou,  I am hoping for a contract with the Minnesota Zoo for some of my birdhouses....

Hello Lou,  I always say "A little higher should be reachable"  Go for it.

So true Lou, a low and easy goal will not get us very far, yet a goal that stretches our horizons can change a life

This is a great philosophy.  Aiming high gets you much farther than you would have gotten without having a goal.

Lou,  aiming high in setting goals is a good way to get one thinking about ways to reach those goals.

Lou, another inspirational post. Goals are so essential, however, setting them high makes us reach outside of our comfort zone.

Lou - You always provide sage advice through your inspirational quotes.  Like my dad often said.  If you don't shoot, you'll never have an opportunity to even hit the target!

Why not? It's a good place to aim - right?
