Knowing What We Want
This article allows the reader to reflect on what he wants, why he wants it, how he may achieve it and the motivation to attain it.
Oftentimes we are unaware of what we want. Many of us go through life without having a clear end goal. Or we know what we desire but fail to see the appropriate path to take.
And when we finally know what we long for, the next question we should ask is whether our goal is realistic? Is it attainable? Or will we become frustrated in the end?
Happiness is perhaps everyone's objective. But our definition of it may vary. Some may see it as enjoyment while others conceive of it as fulfillment. But society also plays a role in how we define happiness since we tend to set other people as our standard.
But there are questions we must first answer as we work towards our goal. Is what we want, really the path to that happines we seek? And willl achieving this goal make our lives better?
Life deals us with a finite number of chances to achieve what we want. Our resources and our strength are not unlimited. And balancing our time between our obligations and our goals is perhaps the hardest part.
We must also be careful with our decisions. Sometimes, there are points of no return, of opportunities that are forever lost. But we should always be open to other possibilities and we should never accept defeat.
