As most of my peers, I have been asking myself a question, what do I want out of life? This question bothers many people and it’s not only the ones who are trying to figure out the path that will lead them to a comfortable life. One might ask, what is that comfort that we are all striving for? It varies from person to person; there are several aspects, such the way they were raised, making, of our lives that could influence a person and the future decisions that we’ll make. To me, a goal is something you desire. I believe that a person needs to achieve certain goals in one’s life before you can call them successful. Success is to reach goals, you have set. I have set certain goals that I would like to achieve in my lifetime. Holding my standards and values high of myself, I want to be challenged, rather than occupied. With that in mind, I explored the current activities I do for pleasure. I examined the topics that fascinate me. Some of these goals are personal, while others are professional. My current goal is simple: Having a good education, while to have a good, stable job that I enjoy, and making enough money to not only support myself, but also a future family, putting the use of my knowledge towards those in need of a helping hand. My life experiences have helped me to appreciate the value of these goals, and I look forward to reaching it. If you only dreamed, you would not be reaching your goals. If you only thought about what kind of future you wanted, but did nothing to make it happen, your dreams would stay dreams. Your goals are the vision of what your future will be like if you put time and energy into making them realities. Goals offer you wonderful advantages that dreams may not. They get you out of bed in the morning. They add structure to your life to help you stay on track. They are the blueprint for the plan that you are building for your future. Goals give your life both purpose and meaning.

Without goals, your life is like a boat...
