It must be borne in mind that the tragedy of life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. It isn’t a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream. It is not a disaster to be unable to capture your ideal, but it is a disaster to have no ideal to capture. It is not a disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for. Not failure, but low aim is a sin.
Benjamin E. Mayes

Goals are a means to an end, not the ultimate purpose of our lives. They are simply a tool to concentrate our focus & move us in a direction. The only reason we really pursue goals is to cause ourselves to expand & grow. Achieving goals by themselves will never make us happy in the long term; it’s who you become, as you overcome the obstacles necessary to achieve your goals, that can give you the deepest & most long-lasting sense of fulfilment.
Anthony Robbins (1960-, American author, speaker, peak performance expert, coach)

The greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.
William James (1842-1910, American psychologist, professor, author)
