Make your dream your goal for success


Believe it or not, without tying your dream to your goal, success will be elusive. In fact, if you want a happy life, you must tie it to a goal. You can neither tie it to people nor things.

If you are not working towards something, then you are living without direction. Goals help you sort out what is important from what isn’t.

The happiest moments of winners are when they are focused on something bigger than themselves. Moreover, what other people think about you really doesn’t matter.


You have no responsibility to live up to what other people think you ought to accomplish. You have no responsibility to be like they expect you to be.

It is up to you to build your own value and approval in life. You must learn to let go of life. You don’t have much control of life anyway. You only have limited personal control over your life.

Think about your body right now. Your hair grows by itself. The heart beats by itself.

As humans, it is necessary to accept that in life, we don’t have much control. Thus, you have to let go and accept what you cannot control, so that you can spend more energy focusing on things you actually can control.

Failure is the road to success. As the great former British Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill, said: “Success is not final; failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.”
Nobody has a life just full of success. Failure is unavoidable in your life, unless you don’t take the chance to succeed. Yet, ever so often, we avoid failure because it makes us feel worse about ourselves.

But honestly, failure gives us the best lessons in life. So, never fear failure, as it is the best stepping-stone to finding success. A person isn’t defined by what he owns, as the best things in life are not property.

Expensive cars, branded bags, lavish clothes, surely they seem cool while you are young, but they do not add any value to you as a person.

So, it is time you stop focusing on these material things and start building meaningful experiences and relationships.

Thinking and doing are not the same. “Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask; Act! Action will delineate and define you,” so said Thomas Jefferson, philosopher and third President of the United States.

You do a lot of daydreaming as a youngster, but if there is no action involved, nothing will ever happen. Success will not come finding and picking you up on your journey.

It is your responsibility to start doing what you have been thinking about. Get going, never wait for the perfect moment; it never comes.

Change, as the only permanent law in life, is the only thing you can count on. But those who only look to the past or the present are certain to miss the future. You determine your future by what you do today.

No matter how hard you try, you cannot stop the natural force of nature. We are all getting older. It is better you grasp the good moments by accepting that which is going on. Everyone you know will eventually die. So, make the most of your relationships while you have them.

Love your parents and treat them with loving care, for you will only know their value when you see their empty chair.
Therefore, worrying is useless. If a problem is fixable, then fix it. There is no need to worry. If it isn’t fixable, worrying cannot fix it. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.

Worrying created by the mind really doesn’t offer any value to our lives. It is a waste of time. The root of your suffering is in the pursuit of temporary excitement.

Sadly, excitement isn’t happiness. And happiness is not, joy which is temporary euphoria. True happiness comes from inner peace- being content with what you have and who you are.
