Make sure it’s YOUR goal.
It is easy to get caught up, and swept along in the current
of other people’s goals, values, and expectations.
We can wind up doing things that we don’t want to do
in order to get something we don’t even want to have.
It’s a big mistake to choose things
that we feel we “should” do…
things prompted by family, friends, or society in general.
There are very few things in life that we really have to do,
so when a person ends end up with a bunch of goals
that other people have set for them,
it’s time to start thinking about what YOU would really like to do.
Don’t set arbitrary goals just because you think you should.
There’s not much joy to be had in chasing a goal
that you don’t care about.
Chances are, you’ll give up part-way and feel guilty,
or you’ll reach the goal,
only to find that success doesn’t make you any happier.
We need to spend some time in thought so we can say:
“I stand here.
This is what is important to me.
This is where I will direct my life’s efforts.
My direction is here.”
Then we need to start doing the things that will move us in that direction.
