With Christmas approaching and New Year's Eve right around the corner, it is not too soon to start thinking about your resolutions -- which is where these talks about goals and reaching them come in. Achieving the objectives you set for yourself often requires more than will power, but strategy and a solid plan in place.

One key to reaching your goals is not feeling defeated should challenges or temptations arise. Failed pilot and successful astronaut Tim Gibson discusses using defeat to succeed and how to use setbacks to fuel your future.

Olympic gold medallist David Hemery talks about goals and potential in young people, which could come in especially handy if you are in a position to mentor or influence youth. He emphasizes that greatness lies within every individual.

Former President of the United States Bill Clinton speaks about the responsibility to try in a Columbia College graduate keynote. This has to do with the pursuit of happiness as well.

Whether you have a goal of being happy or are after more athletic pursuits, these talks about goals could help you get there.
