On the horizon is a mountain, its peak visible on this glorious day. It is your goal. You are aiming to reach the peak of this mountain. According to the dictionary the goal is the mountain peak. According to the encyclopedia, the intended result is that you reach the mountain peak as a result of the journey (intended strategy) you are making. What\'s important, the existence of the goal or the journey to its attainment? Let me refer briefly back to soccer... Is the existence of the goal at the end of the pitch the thing that makes the game, or is it the strategy (and tactics) employed by players to score (reach) the goal?
You\'re Afraid of Judgment _ Sometimes people are scared to set a goal for something because they see it as outrageous. For instance, let\'s say that you want to go back to college to get a Master\'s degree, or you want to start your own business. You fear that if you set that goal, and other people know about the goal they\'ll judge you harshly for wanting it or for some other imagined issue. If you are worried about what others think of you, it\'s time to dig deep inside yourself and get over it. The truth is, what you think of yourself is more important than anything else. When you stop judging yourself, you\'ll stop worrying about the judgment of others.
