We all want to be something big in life; something important; someone of value and of course, someone with a bulky account. However, a lot of us do not start by aiming high for success. Quite a lot of people just sit around and wait for things to happen instead of being the catalyst in bringing about the changes in their lives. But there are many people who dream and aim big in life. Unfortunately, even the people who have big goals in life are not able to get where they want to. This is because aiming high is not everything. Aiming in the right manner and then going about making things happen leads us to where we want.
If you want something out of life, which you may also call your ‘dream’, you will need to work for it. But what does ‘working for’ really entail? A dream is a destination. To be able to reach the destination you need to get started with a journey. But he journey has to be in the right direction. You cannot go south if your dream is north. Therefore, you also need to know the right way.
Setting the right goals ensures that you are on the right track; and even when you digress, with the right goals you can always find your way back. Your dream is a long-term goal, but to get to it you need to create short-term goals. For instance, if you need to reach some corner of the city, you will have to set out on the road. You will need to know the roads and streets that will lead you there. These roads and streets are your short-term goals to your destination.
