Everyone should have goals. Goals lead you to success and help you get to the place or get the things that you want. Goals can vary on tons of topics such as: financial, occupation, personal, academic, and more. Goals are trying to achieve something that you desire, after you create a goal you continually want to make new ones. Without goals you would be the same person, do the same things and have the same things. How boring, right? Goals teach you things like perseverance, motivation, and self improvement .
