I’m sure almost everyone has some sort of goal. This goal can be anything from finishing college, traveling the world, having a family, living on a farm, or just about anything your heart desires. Yes, it’s easier said than done but if you go your entire life telling yourself that tomorrow is a better day then time is already starting to fly out the window. The idea of having a goal is reaching for it. You don't need to have a guarantee that it will be completed, you just need the mindset and determination to start it and give it a try.
My goal is to travel the world. In order to travel I need money, to get money I must work hard and to work hard I need to have the determination to keep pushing fourth. No one is going to work hard for me. I’ve currently been traveling South America for 8 months now because I worked hard for it. To continue to travel I must go back to the States (or maybe anywhere in the world), work and then have another go at it.
Determination needs to come from within. It helps some people to write down their goals. Some people need to tell others their goals. Any method helps and if you need that extra push it doesn't mean you're not determined enough. It just means you need that extra support that will help you reach your goals. Set a goal, write it down, and work at it everyday. We all know that the time will pass either way. Do you want to let it pass knowing you didn’t give it a shot?
