"That's My Goal" is a popular song, released as the first single by the second United Kingdom "X Factor" winner Shayne Ward. The song was first heard in the final of the aforementioned series, where it was performed by both Ward and "X Factor" runner up, Andy Abraham.

The single was rush-released on Wednesday December 21, 2005. This is unusual as most new singles are released on a Monday to gain maximum sales for the UK Singles Chart the following Sunday. The late release was due to the fact that Ward was only chosen as the artist on the night of Saturday December 17, and delaying release until the next week would mean the song would not be a contender for the Christmas number one. The song sold 742,180 copies in this five-day period, which was more than enough to secure the 2005 Christmas number one, taking over from Nizlopi. It was the second biggest selling single of 2005 in the UK, and as of 2006, is the 69th biggest selling single in the UK. To date, it has sold 1.3 million copies in the UK.

The song spent four weeks at number 1 and stayed in the top 75 for 21 weeks.
