The Difference Between Goals and Having a Vision

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions
for Life”
comes from Ryan.

Neagle                 Code Question


Hi David,

I’ve heard you mention goals quite often in your teaching. I’m confused… is a goal like a vision? Can you please clarify for me?

Hi Ryan and thanks for the wonderful question.


A vision is a clear picture of what you’d like for your life or business.

Let me explain.


When I was just starting out, my vision was pretty simple. I could only see a few things.


I wanted a boat and I wanted to buy property in Central Wisconsin for when I retired.

Some people have grander visions like a house in Italy or speaking on huge stages.

The key piece with a vision is that it is not about anyone else. It’s what you want for you; and it maybe hidden in your secret thoughts that you’ve never told anyone about.

A goal is a step toward that big vision.

It’s something you need to do that will take you closer to realizing your vision.

My vision was to buy a boat, so I set a goal for myself to double my income.

By increasing my income, I would be closer to having the ability to buy that boat.

Think of goals as the rungs of a ladder that leads to your vision at the top.

Keep in mind that as you take steps toward your vision, it may begin to change.

As your vision changes continue setting goals to take you closer to that vision, and when you see opportunities, always ask yourself:
Is this taking me closer to my vision or further away?

Let your vision be your guide.

Just Believe,®
