Set a simple, achievable goal everyday and do it. Setting goals gives you purpose, and they help you to guide your life. Goals Help Us Believe In Ourselves. Setting goals for yourself is a way to fuel your ambition. Goal setting isn't just about creating a plan for your life and holding yourself accountable, its also about giving us the inspiration necessary to aim for things we never thought possible. Having little tasks and being able to resolve them gives you a sense of achievement and encouragement to go for bigger goals in life.
