Commit to creating goals that will upgrade your current level of success. Goals provide you with vision and direction, and give you a direct way to measure your progress. Striving to meet your longer-term goals gives you the insight into what smaller goals need to be achieved to create the path to those bigger picture goals. Your long-term goals are the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. They are the benchmarks you need, out in front of you, to keep you directed and motivated. Your longer-term goals drive hope and put you into action. The closer you get the them, the happier your life becomes.
