In life, it is important to make goals and to also have big dreams.
Goals and dreams are the things that keep us going, the things that keep us motivated. They keep us motivated when we are happy, sad, when we want more, when we don’t have enough. There are times when we achieve our goals, but we aren’t as satisfied as expected.
If that describes you, just know this: You are not alone, which is why we have devised this list.
Let the journey begin.
The Quick List
- Perhaps The Reasoning Was Off
- Because Expectations And Reality Are Two Different Things
- Your Goals Only Featured Yourself
- Because You Are Hungry
Perhaps The Reasoning Was Off
While goals are crucial to make no matter who you are, sometimes we make goals for the wrong reasons. If your goals are centered around money, or perhaps just yourself (more from this concept later), then you are likely not going to be satisfied at the end of the journey.
Money truly does not buy happiness. Yes, it is part of the equation, but it is not the only ingredient.
Because Expectations And Reality Are Two Different Things
Let’s face it: Many of us live in our own heads. That is the place where we keep dreams, after all. As a result, we picture these perfect scenarios, but when these scenarios start to finally align just right, expectations and reality tend to battle.
Expectations and reality are two different things, and we sometimes don’t realize that until reality rears its head, whether it is a thing of beauty or not. While having expectations is a must, we also have to keep an open mind, and also be realistic in the process.
Your Goals Only Featured Yourself
If your goals only feature yourself, then you are only helping out one person. It is natural to make goals that only benefit yourself. However, at the end of the day, we all want to make a difference. That is why we have to expand our horizons and start thinking about the bigger picture, a place that features everyone.
Because You Are Hungry
It is a tough task to please business owners, entrepreneurs and really motivated people in general. That is because these types of people are always hungry. They make goals, crush them and then move onto the next project.
Being satisfied is a great feeling to have, but there are many people who, like we stated earlier, want to make a difference, and moving from one goal to the next is how you accomplish that.
