This week, as you and your family give thanks, take some time to reflect on what it really means to be family.

Achieving your most precious goal

Achieving your most precious goalToday I want you to think about what it would take to work on your most precious goal.

Your "precious goal" is the one goal that is your burning desire. This is the goal that you have always wanted to complete, but have not been able to do so as of today. This goal wakes you up in the morning and this is the goal that you think of completing before you go to sleep at night.
