Goals. Its so important to set them. Its important that they are reasonable and achievable in the amount of time you have set for them... oh and you should set an amount of time you want to achieve them in... get it?!
The key is there is a difference between "I can do this" and "if I work my ass of, I can do this." There is a difference between setting a goal that is definitely attainable, one that you think there is a small chance you might not reach it in time... and one that is just plain scary. Goals should be all over the map... goals for your immediate future, goals for 6 months, goals for 12 months... 5 years, whatever you need to get the job done.
Its important to set them to keep from being content with consistency. They help to elevate life from just day to day to looking forward to reaching new heights and accomplishing new things. Every day we are on this planet we are evolving. We have to... we learn, we grow and we change. Life changes around us... some try not to change or evolve with that time... sit on the side lines waiting for it to catch up with them. If you set goals, you will keep moving forward, life will not pass without you taking a second glance. You will know that you gave your life its shot at being all you can be.
I personally have issues sometimes setting goals that are too high, that are unreasonable... and I know that about myself. In some cases it comes back to bite me in the ass, and in some cases I have this glorious sense of accomplishment the day I can finally say "Yeah... I did that!" I accept challenge, I challenge myself and I like to keep myself on my toes by never being satisfied. I relish in my accomplishments, am proud of what I have done... and set a new goal. Its a cycle, however it is just as important to celebrate the goals you hit as it is to set a new one.
Keep reaching, keep striving to be all that you want to be and never ever give up.
