What are your goals? What do you really want in life? Do you want a great job and all the regular accouterments of the American Dream? Do you want to start your own company, travel the world, or just find some cozy place to live for you and your family? When was the last time you did something about it?
Goals and dreams need to be pursued. They need to be desired. They are constantly moving, so if you don’t reach for them, they’ll seem to be out of reach forever. They’ll find someone else who will pursue them.
Goals don’t need to be clenched at with an iron hand. Ghandi achieved his goals through satyagraha, or “the single-minded pursuit of truth.” There was not fighting or clamoring for what he thought should be his. He simply never stopped pursuing.
Often I think we get stuck in wishing for what we want, but don’t want to leave our comfort zones to pursue it. Don’t get stuck there.
Sit down with yourself. Figure out what you want. Then figure out what needs to happen to achieve them. Go to and accomplish.
