It's such huge deal every time! And there are people who go their entire career in soccer only scoring a few times, if at all.
Goals don't come easy. Players have to fight up and down the field working for field position just to get a shot at the goal. Even unsuccessful attempts are celebrated because of all the work it took just to try!
Goals in life should be the same; the type of thing you know you have to work hard for, something you have to fight for. Your goals should not come easy. And every single one should be worthy of celebrating.
Many of us set goals that we feel are attainable. We think, "What do I currently believe I'm capable of?" And we go for something within our perceived limitations. But that means when you get the goal, you don't celebrate it as a true accomplishment because you already knew you could do it.
Your goals should scare you and excite you. They should require you to walk into uncharted territory. You should be a little scared, a little uncomfortable.
When you try to do something you've never done, you have to grow and stretch yourself to be able to accomplish it. You have to ask more of yourself and give more of yourself or it simply won't work.
Goals should require you to think differently; to think bigger! To find talents and abilities you didn't know you had or develop those talents and abilities that you have kept dormant for far too long.
If the goal doesn't require you to do more than you've ever done, then it's not the right goal.
Don't set goals you know you can achieve; set goals you have to grow to achieve.
Because it’s never about the goal, it’s about who you become in the process.
