Setting goals and achieving them is one of the most satisfying feelings that you will ever experience. If the feeling is so wonderful, then why doesn't everyone in the World achieve great things in their lives?

Unfortunately, there are people who simply don't and won't set goals and will therefore achieve very little. Negative thinkers will often settle for going through life without much thought of trying to improve their lot. Indeed, they probably don't even care.

There are others who genuinely believe that they are not capable of changing their circumstances. They believe that this was the hand that they were dealt, so they just have to get on with it.

I find this incredibly sad. Achievers are people who understand that they have a purpose in life and that we are here to be happy. We are on Earth to learn and to grow and to gain as much experience as we can. We are here to reach our full potential. Those who think that they cannot achieve great things and make major changes in their lives are denying themselves the right to genuine happiness.

Take time to think of what you could achieve in your life to make your circumstances better, and to enable you to enjoy life more. Make a list, and plan how you will go about achieving your dreams. And then take action. Believe in yourself and in your abilities. You can achieve whatever you desire if you have the faith that you can do it.

I challenge you to think of something that you can achieve today. It doesn't matter how small it is, but the important thing is that you do it. I can assure you that you will feel good about yourself, and that you will want to achieve more. Please don't let the days go by with so little to show for your time on Earth.
