Do you set big goals?
Set a goal to achieve something that is so big, so exhilarating, that it excites you and scares you at the same time.
– Bob Proctor
Bob Proctor Trivia
I’ve shared a few Bob Proctor quotes since I started writing these post, so check out the first one about how to complete your goals if you don’t know who he is.
Bob Proctor was a fireman in Ontario, Canada when he received his first copy of Think and Grow Rich (affiliate link) by Napoleon Hill. That completely changed his life and set him on the path to become one of the biggest success coaches.
Set Big Goals
Setting goals can be a little bit tricky.
Here Bob Proctor advises you to set a goal so big that it both excites and scares you. I heard Bob once say in a seminar that he didn’t take on a new business deal unless it caused him a few butterflies in his stomach.
Many people play it safe when they set goals. They choose to do something they already know how to do.
Safe goals don’t serve you because they don’t force you to grow. You need a goal that takes you out of your comfort zone.
On the other hand, you don’t want a goal so big that it scares you stiff either.
Your ideal goal is big enough that it excites you into action and gets you out of the comfort zone. It forces you to grow in some way. But it is also small enough that you believe you can accomplish it.

My goal is to take my home-based business all the way to the top. I’ve played my small game too long and it’s time to let it grow into something that can benefit a lot more people.
