A life well lived, is a life well spent. A life well spent is one lived on purpose. In life, we’re faced with the boundless opportunities that humanity and this world can give us. We can only do so much if we lack a certain “something” that we call, a goal.
Normally, what puts us in motion are the things that we look forward to. Having a purpose in life is key to your ability to keep going no matter how huge the odds or how big the obstacles ahead of you appear to be.
Life is a matter of perspective. Having goals in your life is the best way to live your life on purpose.
How Far Have You Gone?
Basically, it’s not how long we lived but how far we’ve gone to make the best out of each day. Setting a goal is like putting money in the bank. It’s something that you look forward to and we could also consider it our investment.
Having goals is a must if you’re serious about professional or personal success. Some people see their goals as the reason for their existence while others see their goals as the trophies for their good work.
Defining a Goal
The most tragic thing that could happen in your life is not failing to reach your goal but rather not having one to being with. We are all given the equal chance to live. Now it’s up to us whether we make the best out of it.
Formulating a goal is the primary thing that drives people to the edges of the world, boundlessly seeking new thing and expanding horizons. Your goals in life could be anything.
It could be buying a new house, getting promoted, having everything you have always dreamed of, or perhaps being rich and famous. It can all be made possible and nothing could stop you if you have already set your goals.
Putting Goals in a Loop
What happens when I reach my goal? Do I get to just stick around and watch the world move past me? Or perhaps make set another goal?
There’s one goal that you should always pair with your goals and it’s putting it in a loop. When you have reached some of your goals, life as we know it doesn’t end there.
You must continue to live and you must continue to have goals. Putting this is a cycle helps you become more efficient and live a more rewarding life. Establishing goals as early as in your youth will most likely lead you to a life of happiness and fulfillment.
Just remember that great living a life of and on purpose comes from having great goals.
