All people have a goal in life, either a large or several small ones. This also applies to those who believe that they have no goals. The reason why so many never reach or succeed in realizing what they dream of is that their goals or dreams are not sufficiently specific. The first thing you have to do is find out exactly what you want – is your goal something you want or something you don’t want?
To answer that question, you must be brutally honest with yourself. You need to know if you are actively striving to fulfill something that you crave or if you just flee from something you want to avoid. Knowing what you deeply want to accomplish is the very first step you need to take to get anywhere, never forget it!
Once you have called in your goal, you need to find out if that is what you really want or if it is something that you feel you should want or do to meet someone else’s expectations or demands on you or because you believe that you must impress someone. This can also be a tough nut to crack because it requires you to dare to investigate yourself and ask uncomfortable questions that you might have rather turned a blind eye to. But keep in mind that it’s your life it’s all about. What is the point of striving to fulfill other people’s dreams (eg parents who think you should invest in a particular education or career) and thus also live someone else’s life?
The only way to create enough motivation to realize a goal is to fight for something that you want to achieve and something that you have control of yourself. All other attempts will only be half-hearted compromises.
