Readers of all ages will benefit from the sound advice and text which points out each and every aspect of goal-setting; focusing on the 'how to's' as well as which negative habits to avoid, and how to ensure that you avoid them.
This book explains to inspiring goal setters, the importance of ensuring that the goals set are realistic and achievable. It gives examples, helping the reader to relate the situation in the example to their own life, assisting them to overcome their own obstacles.
