When you have goals and you are on track to reach them, you are happy. But your happiness isn’t going to become permanent when you finally reach those goals. You may be more satisfied with life and happier for a while,but you are still going to want to set new goals. You will never be satisfied, and that’s perfectly okay.
So, you might be wondering just what the purpose of goals actually are then. You cannot be successful without goals, and you cannot form good habits without goals.
You can try to force yourself to do something habitually, but without a goal behind them, those habits have no power and they will not stick, even if you do follow the steps required to get them to become permanent. Your goal is not only your motivation; it is also your blueprint. The goal that you are working towards will put demands on the types of habits that you create and it will shape the way that you change.
