#319 Project W (Double you) – S3 E2 – Why goals?

What keeps me going is goals.

Muhammad Ali

Well, if Muhammad Ali says that, it must be really important to have goals in life then! In fact, goals are forming the basis of everything. You get up in the morning and do what? Go to work? Read a book? Drink a coffee? Why are you doing what you do? Because you do not know it better, or because you think that this is how it is supposed to be done?

Everyone has goals in life, you may just don’t interpret them as such. Without having any kind of goal, you wouldn’t do anything. You would just lay in bed all day long, waste your time with something unimportant and wait until you die. Does your life look like that? Hopefully not!

But having any kind of unimportant goals in life isn’t really helping us either, right? We tend to lose our focus, our purpose, the direction we want to go.

Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor.

Brian Tracy

If you want to change your life, you should start with changing your goals. What do you really want to achieve? Where do you see yourself in the future? Your goals are leading the way! The difference between who you are today and who you will become in the future is just a matter of organized effort, focused on specific and well defined goals.

A goal should scare you a little, & excite you A LOT.

Joe Vitale

In life, we are always afraid about doing that one particular mistake.

Aiming too high.

But in fact, no goal can ever be too high! No goal can ever be too ambitious, too much over the top, too far away from you to reach. Everything is possible, it may just take longer.

When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.


If you believe in yourself, the door of opportunity will be always open to you. Maybe, you are just not working hard enough! Maybe, you are not really focusing on the important things in your life! Maybe, you are just doing too much without doing anything productive.

The goal is not to ignore reality and drift up into a parallel world, but instead to finally see the world with different eyes. You can always do more! You can always work on your skills! You can always improve upon your current doings!

But how do we find our own goals? How can we figure out what our life should be all about? How can we give our life the right orientation?

The answer! It needs to come from within! The change needs to come from inside your body! There is no way around that.

You think that you will miraculously wake up one morning and know exactly what you need to do and when you need to start changing your life?

I am so sorry to say, but this day will never just happen randomly! If you don’t start to do something and actively think about your future, this day will never come.

Do what you love!
what you do!

Passion is an endless source of energy! Why don’t you use it more often?

Dream about a better future, act upon your dreams, there is only one outcome at the end, success!

See you next time!
