100 Motivational Quotes About Goals That Will Fuel You Up To Realize Your Full Potential

Whenever we start on something new, we have a goal in mind and whatever we do subsequently is entirely dedicated to achieve that. Therefore, while setting our objectives we should have a clear perspective as to what we want. We should not just follow set norms and do what others are doing. Rather, when we set out to accomplish something we should keep our interest in mind and not what the society wants us to do because it is we who have to work towards realizing the goal. If we take up some aim which we are not inclined towards, it will be a waste of our time, energy and talent as we will not be able to fulfil our dreams. No wonder it is the destination which matters to us but we should also know that the journey should be enticing too. Moreover, what is the use of reaching a destination where we do not want to be? Time and again people have taken up risks, going against set doctrines and have made history in the process. Hence, setting the right goal should be our priority and then working towards achieving it will become easy and motivating. These quotes about goal setting will bring a new zeal into your life.

Perhaps when we find ourselves wanting everything, it is because we are dangerously close to wanting nothing.
