Excerpt quoted from “10 Mindsets That Will Radically Improve Your Business”, written by Sherrie Campbell for Entrepreneur.com.
Knowing and being clear about where you're headed in business is something that must come from within. When your goals are selected by you, you're more motivated to achieve them.
That's because by achieving these goals, you attain a new desired piece of yourself. When your goals arise from your instigation, they carry a deeper meaning and confer a greater impact on your identity.
Each self-selected goal realized adds a depth and an internal expansion to you as a person. Personal expansion is just one of the great gifts to come from succeeding in your business goals."
