Feeling good about the future is really important for our happiness. We all need goals that inspire us and these have to be challenging enough to excite us, but also achievable. If we try and achieve the impossible it can create unnecessary stress in our life. Choosing meaningful goals and realistic goals gives our lives direction and brings a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction when we achieve them.
The Right Goals Provide You Drive and Direction
Simon Sinek, the leadership expert, says that leaders always start with “Why”. If you want to be happy, then you need to have big goals and most importantly, you need to have goals that matter to you. When you have a particular goal, you need to ask yourself why you want that particular goal to be fulfilled. Think – what that goal will mean to you and how it will give your life more meaning. The pursuit of things that give our life meaning and that really contribute some values to us in some way is a key to living a fulfilling life. Ask yourself, “What’s the meaning of life?” and at some point of time, you will really find the answer “The meaning of life is to live a life of meaning”.
