"He is drawn by his goal, for he does not allow anything to enter his mind which oppposes his goal"


“Goals provide a sense of direction and purpose" - Goldstein, 1994

According to Goal Setting Theory, individuals are known to exert more effort and thus achieve higher levels of performance on a task, when the goals are perceived to be difficult and specific. Commitment to the goal, belief that a goal can be accomplished and a faith that the individual has the requisite skills are necessary for goal accomplishment.
