There are things that we have always wanted to do in our lives. We all have dreams and wishes that we seek to fulfil. Our destinies are meant to be forged through a combination of the extent of our potential and the dreams that have been placed in our hearts. As daunting a task as this may seem, it is within reach, for we are capable of achieving whatever we are capable of believing. We have the dreams that we have always imagined, then we have mere wishes that we wish to pursue in this world.

What is the difference between a dream and a wish?

The difference between dreams and wishes though, is that wishes come and go over time, but you cant forget about dreams, for they are what you are meant to do in this world.

We can sometimes have a hard time figuring out how to go about achieving them. We establish a goal, yet sometimes only placing one massive goal before us may appear too daunting, causing our loyalty to it to waiver from time to time.

We must set long-term and short-term goals. We must set smaller attainable goals to celebrate some victories on our way to our long-term goals. We must keep the long-term massive goals though, for the full extent of your massive potential won't be reached otherwise. The small term goals which we give ourselves are merely checkpoints on our road to fulfilment; our long-term goals are who we are truly meant to become.

Why are goals so important?

Goal-setting is our first step towards turning the invisible into the visible.

We must set strong goals, for the problem with not having a goal is going through life without doing what you were meant to do, and not what you want to do. You end up not achieving what you were meant to achieve. Our road to self-fulfilment is simply an accumulation of goal setting and discipline. Our goals define where we need to go because, without a plan, it will be impossible to reach the destination of our desires.

You have a purpose, so set goals in your life far beyond your current circumstances to remind yourself of this and give yourself something to live for. Don't fear failure or fear of going too far, for creating fear is only a self-designated limitation. Only those who risk going too far can find out how far one can go in life.

Whatever it is you want to do in this world, whatever your dreams are, turn your dreams into goals through the actions you take to pursue them. As long as you have a will to pursue something, you are capable of achieving it.
