“If you aim at nothing you’ll hit it every time.” – B.J. Marshall
When you walk into a restaurant, you don’t just say, “bring me some food” Instead, you’re very specific— you pick exactly what you want from the menu. Do the same for your life. Don’t just say “My goal of in the next five years is to be happy.” Be specific. The clearer and more vividly you visualize a goal, the easier it becomes to achieve or acquire it. If possible ride in it, fly in it, visualize it, rehearse it, get pictures of it. Then list the steps you need to attain it.
The tragedy of life does not lie in not reaching your goals, the tragedy lies in not having any goals to reach. It isn’t a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream. It is not a disaster to be unable to capture your ideals, but it is a disaster to have no ideals to capture. It si not a disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach. – Dr. Benjamin Mays
