The other day I gathered 1 of my groups at The Underground Strength Gym after their warm up.
I asked them Who has goals here?
Who knows what they are training for and what they want to achieve?
There were a few who knew EXACTLY what their goals were.
A few understood that they would need to step up their commitment level to actually achieve those goals.
And a few honestly had to tell themselves (and me) that they have NO clue what they're training for.
I replied to the athletes with NO goals that this is why their training intensity and dedication is poor at best.
I didn't say this to be rude, I said it because telling them the truth about What It Takes is the key to helping them achieve success. Lying to them would NOT help them. They get lied to on the regular and their excuses are given the green light.
Because we're in a day and age where excellence is feared and even frowned upon in "normal" places such as many schools and even from parents.
Unless you change this behavior NOW, you'll be 25, 25, 55, 75 with NO goals.
Let me explain more....

The comments in this video are great as well. Athletes & Parents sharing how goal setting is helping them achieve a much higher level of success.
Arnold was the King of goal setting when he was dominating the bodybuilding scene in the 70s.
He applied his goal setting and "Stay Hungry" mentality to the movie business, real estate, politics, etc. He dominated all of these areas because of his goal setting and relentless pursuit of achieving his goals.
No matter what you do in life, you need goals. Goals allow you to reverse engineer your action plan and most of all, you can see if you're truly doing what it takes to meet your goals.
Plenty of people TALK about their big goals but their actions tell you otherwise.
Set your goals.
Reverse engineer your action plan.
Attack your goals with a Relentless Pursuit of Excellence.
