How Goals Become Reality!

Nov 16, 2007
Do you have a home computer? Yes? What operating system does your computer run on? Eight out of ten people would answer that it would be the Windows operating system. Why is this so?

The reason is because over 80% of personal computers run on Microsoft software. Did this happen by chance? No!

This is the result of a very clear goal Bill Gates set when he first started Microsoft, two decades back. His vision was to have a computer on every desk and every home, running on Microsoft software'.

In fact, this goal was set at a time when it was uncommon for homes to have personal computers. In 1977, Kenneth Olsen, the President of Digita Equip Corp remarked, 'There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in their home.'

Gates thought otherwise. He made it his specific goal and mobilized his team to create what is now taken for granted; home computers that are as common as telephones.

Milkshake salesman Ray Kroc set a mega goal of going global...

Do you know which company collectively owns the biggest spread of real estate in the world? It's McDonalds corp. Anywhere in the world, in any major city, you will find a McDonalds restaurant.

In fact, many major cities like Los Angeles, California, Hong Kong and London have a McDonalds outlet in almost every five blocks.

In the early days, during McDonalds' massive expansion phase, outlets were being opened at the rate of one restaurant a day, all around the world!

This phenomenon did not happen by accident. McDonalds' dominance around the world started as the result of a clear vision that McDonald's Franchise owner Ray Kroc had when he first acquired the worldwide rights to build McDonalds restaurants around the world.

In the beginning McDonalds was just a small diner in America operated by the McDonald brothers. At that time, Ray Kroc was a salesman who sold milkshake mixers.

When he saw how the diner was operated, he was amazed at its service, efficiency and the consistency and cleanliness of the food offered to its customers.

Kroc managed to get the brothers to transfer over to him the rights to franchise and build exact replicas of the McDonalds restaurant around the world.

As salesman Kroc flew back home with the newly-signed document in his hand, he knew he had a struck a goldmine as he envisioned hundreds of thousands of these McDonalds restaurants being created all over the world, in every country, and in every city.

Again it was this specific mega goal, fueled by passion that led to it being a reality. Today a new McDonald's restaurant opens somewhere in the world every seven hours: a tally of 20,000+ outlets in 90 countries serving 29 million people everyday.

When you set your mind to it, your goal will become a reality. So starting aiming high and I'll see you among the stars!
