The Importance of Setting Goals
Setting goals is the most important thing you can do in your life. Without goal's you are going to have no direction, no ambition to be successful, no drive to stay in school, and trouble finding a career that will provide for you. Without these three things, achieving your goals is going to be one of the toughest tasks in the years to come.
When setting direction to success you must make good choices on the path you are going to choose. The wrong path will put you somewhere that is going to take you off track from your goals. This path can lead to partying too much, getting lazy, and not going back to school. Not doing schoolwork is getting lazy. You must stay on top of schoolwork and not fall behind.

The drive to stay in school is another big part of setting goals. Without the drive to stay in school, you lose site of those nice things that can be achieved with hard work. Drive also motivates you to do the things that you don't want to do, but have to do them. Things like writing papers, studying for exams, and going to school during the summer. The drive to achieve your goals will help you through these tough times. Through the tough times, think about all of those goals you are trying to achieve, and how nice it is going to be when you reach them.
Finding a career that will provide for you can be very difficult if you do not follow the path to reach your goals. This is another reason to stay on track and work hard in school. Without your education, going into the work force and finding a good job that will provide for you and your family can be very hard. Most jobs require school degrees and sometimes certifications that require many hours of work. Without the degrees and the certifications, advancement in a job is sometimes impossible. Without advancement in a career, it is very hard to reach your goals of making that big salary, and having all of the enjoyable things in life.
My first year of college I didn't realize the importance of setting goals. After my first year in college, having a good job, and seeing other people that did not make such good choices, I have
Goal of My life
Life without a noble aim is like a rudderless ship, but to choose a goal is quite an uphill task. Different people have different ambitions according to their tastes and likings because nothing is good or bad but thinking makes it so. Every seeing eye, thinking mind and feeling heart has one ambition or the other.
My greatest aim in life is to serve my country. I know that this is not as easy job, I also know that there are many ways of serving one’s country. I know that the best service to my country, in the first place, would be to become a good citizen. I may choose to be a teacher, an engineer or a doctor. I may become a businessman or a politician. But whatever I become, I shall not be useful to my country, if I do not realize my rights and duties.
My first step in realizing the aim of my life, therefore would be to make myself an ideal citizen. I shall never become corrupt and shall never tolerate corruption among others. I shall always be just and fair to others. In every action I will always keep the interest of the community before my personal interest. Whenever there is a clash between my personal and social interest, I shall not press my claims. If I can live up to this idea, I would have a healthy, influence on everybody. I can bring no reform in others if I do not reform myself.
My way of serving my country would be to become a doctor and take up this profession seriously. As a doctor, I shall devote all my energies in helping my countrymen. My aim would not be to make money.
I would serve my country in another manner also. In addition to my job. I shall always be prepared to lend my support to all good causes. I would take keen interest in all the movements going on around me. I shall try to help in eradicating poverty and ignorance of my countrymen in every way. If I can afford it, I shall give financial help to organizations which carry in such work.
I know that the service of my country is difficult if I work alone and do not pool my energy with that of others. No individual, however great, is in a position to serve his country in isolation. In the world of today, great changes can be brought about, only by collective effort. Therefore I shall take keen interest in the development of the political parties of the country. I shall study their programmes and see which one can really work for the welfare of the people. I shall then seriously make a choice and render help to the political party of my choice.
My goal in life is of a very modest nature. I know I shall be able to line up to this modest ideal. If everyone in our country, were to have the same ambition, our country would make rapid progress in no time. Thus my ambition in life would be achieved all the more if I can persuade others to follow this very way of life. This I shall try to do by setting a personal example. All those who come in contact with me will be inspired by my way of my life. This is the best way in which we can serve our country.
