  1. One Question
    Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012

    Every single day we should ask,
    Ourselves an important question.
    What goals will we complete today,
    That will end in a happy expression?

    Goals are so very important in life,
    In order to continue to grow.
    You can only become someone important,
    If you first believe it so.

    Creating goals that will better your life,
    Is how one can become who they want to be.
    So trust in yourself that you are enough,
    And soon you will be able to see.

    So ask yourself where you want to go,
    Then create goals that will get you there.
    Take each goal as a single step,
    And this is how you will prepare.

    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    You may think it will make you rich.

    That your goal is possible

    But don't let them stop the pace
    Find a way to overcome
    Allowing your dream to become.

    Don't worry about how long
    As you will find your dream becoming a reality
    Setting goals gives you clarity!

  6. Better To Climb And Fail
    Poet: Unknown

    Give me a man with an aim,
    Whatever that aim may be,
    Whether it's wealth, or whether it's fame,
    It matters not to me.
    Let him walk in the path of right,
    And keep his aim in sight,
    And work and pray in faith always,
    With his eye on the glittering height.

    Give me a man who says,
    "I will do something well,
    And make the fleeting days
    A story of labor tell."
    Though the aim he has to be small,
    It is better than none at all;
    With something to do the whole year through
    He will not stumble or fall.

    Better to strive and climb,
    And never reach the goal,
    Than to drift along with time,
    An aimless, worthless soul.
    Ay, better to climb and fall,
    Or sow, though the yield be small,
    Than to throw away day after day,
    And never to strive at all.

  7. set your goals, and include action steps and then take the action one step at a time!

  12. Results or Roses
    Poet: Edgar A. Guest

    The man who wants a garden fair,
    Or small or very big,
    With flowers growing here and there,
    Must bend his back and dig.

    The things are mighty few on earth
    That wishes can attain.
    Whate'er we want of any worth
    We've got to work to gain.

    It matters not what goal you seek,
    It's secret here reposes:
    You've got to dig from week to week
    To get Results or Roses.

  14. Our Goal And Glory
    Poet: Lydia M. Millard

    As down a hundred stairs we graze,
    A hundred stairs of time;
    As upward still our eyes we raise,
    As upward still we climb, -

    We see the vales and hills behind,
    The vales and hills before;
    We see the goals we hope to find,
    And see the goals passed o'er.

    O'er every sea and shore we read,
    All men are equal born;
    The noblest thought and noblest deed
    Hath noblest glory worn.

    May every victory we win
    Be won by tireless toil,
    No battle smoke or battle din
    Our growing glory foil.

    As long as stars above us shine,
    Or grass beneath shall grow,
    Peace round us sheds her light divine,
    And Truth her radiant glow.

    The God of all the stars and flowers
    Around us throw his shield,
    And make this happy land of ours
    A bloodless battle-field,

    Where Truth shall fight her battles hard,
    And win her triumphant way,
    And Right shall be the brave watchword,
    And conquer every day.

    May this be Freedom's dearest home,
    Her happiest, holiest shrine,
    That, till to Freedom's heaven we come,
    Her fires may deathless shine.

    May every hungry, homeless heart,
    Where'er on earth it beat,
    Find here a hearth-stone always bright,
    A welcome always sweet.
