Goal setting. We all do it, whether we realize it or not. Setting goals is our way of telling ourselves that there is more to life than the current moment. It is our way of planning out what we aim to do in a way that is more permanent than just exploring a pipedream or a fleeting idea.
But following through with your goals is just as important as setting them. We are told time and time again to aim high and follow our dreams, but how many of us actually do that? How many of us follow through with what we aim to do?
Following through is what turns goals into reality. Even if it doesn’t work out, attempting to accomplish something until it is successful or a dud is what gives us the satisfaction of knowing we tried. There is so much negativity surrounding the idea of failure, but I think if we tried hard enough, it wouldn’t matter if things didn’t work out. All that matters is we gave it a shot.
Give yourself a shot.
I think the world would be a better place if we let go of the fear of letting go. I think the world needs a pep talk.
