Have you ever wanted to achieve something in your lifetime, which may be a long term or short term goal? If you don’t have goals set, what is the point of being alive? Having goals will allow you to push yourself to become better than everyone around you. In order to achieve this, you will need aspiration, the desire to achieve something great.
