A goal is the driving purpose of life. It is something we live for and in the absence of which our life is meaningless. A goal can be as simple as getting the dream job, or the promotion, or winning a competition and as difficult, as it sounds, to lose weight or to start up a company.

In order to set a goal in the first place, you need to know where you stand. You need to start with setting the benchmarks and slowly move towards the highest goals you have set in your life. One should not worry about the feasibility of a goal but at the same time be practical about it. By setting sharp, clearly defined goals, you can measure and take pride in the achievement of those goals, and you’ll see forward progress in what might previously have seemed a long pointless grind. You will also raise yourself-confidence , as you recognize your own ability and competence in achieving the goals that you’ve set.. If you think, you achieve.

“A farmer had a dog that used to sit by the roadside waiting for vehicles to come around. As soon as one came he would run down the road, barking and trying to overtake it. One day a neighbor asked the farmer “Do you think your dog is ever going to catch a car?” The farmer replied, “That is not what bothers me. What bothers me is what he would do if he ever caught one.” Many people in life behave like that dog who is pursuing meaningless goals.”

Life is hard by the yard,  but by the inch,  it’s a cinch.
