Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now. -Denis Waitley
To continue to achieve in life, a person has to be willing to set goals for their lives. Without any sense of direction a person will just blow in the wind, falling and following every single thing that may cross their paths. Instead of being a victim to the plethora of choices that must be made in each day, a person has to be willing to stick to making decisions that represent who they are, and where they are trying to go in life.
