“We must have a theme, a goal, a purpose in our lives. If you don’t know where you are aiming, you don’t have a goal.”
These words are from Mary Kay Ash. She is the founder of Mary Kay Inc., a company that sells skin care and cosmetics products. Their core belief was that women could foster their talents and realize unlimited success and this reflected on how her company supported women through their beauty products. Her advice talked about a very simple principle – that you need to define your goals in order to effectively push forward. Otherwise, you’ll just be floating aimlessly. Without a goal to shoot for, you most likely won’t have the ability to trudge through the challenges that you will face with entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurs need to have a sense of drive and defining your goals helps you do just that.
