Personal Goal Setting

Use this technique to develop your own personal vision statement. Write a story of what your life will look like in 5 years. Include a discussion of your core beliefs and what changes in your life you’d like to see made (include at least two). Next develop specific goals for yourself (at least five) for the next year to help make this vision a reality. Finally, discuss two reasons that identifying your vision and goals will help to make them happen and two possible stumbling blocks that may impede your progress towards your vision.
Your paper should be no more than 4 – 5 pages and in current APA edition format. Submit this to the Submissions Area by the due date assigned.
