This premise is so true and yet, having fallen short of so many things I aimed for in 2012, I firmly believe that, while they may have to be slightly more than attainable, they must be realistic. To constantly fail through the setting of unrealistic goals is detrimental to you overall wellbeing.
I found a great meme on Facebook yesterday that says, “If your dreams don’t scare you, then they aren’t big enough.”
As we’re jumping into 2013, I’m really taking that idea to heart. How many times have we given up something truly great for something simply attainable? For how long have we been conditioned to always hold a little bit in reserve, never giving 100%? And, most importantly, how is that holding us back?
