Growing up, failure was not an option is my household. I knew by age 5, I would be attending college. Even though I had no idea what college was. My motto growing up was "You do not win second place, you lose first." So you can see how setting goals was a part of my upbringing.
Setting goals can be limiting. It closes doors and the unexpected in life. I decided to live without goals, at least for the most part. I know a lot of people would disagree with me, they would say that goals is what allows us to achieve things. I would say that goals can limit possibilities one never thought of before.
I finally realize that a lack of goal is not a lack of achievement. A lack of goals is the ability to allow life to unfold in front of me. It is to allow the unexpected to be an enjoyable surprise.
I was so concerned because I achieved all my goals that I didn't know what to do with myself. The answer was right in front of me the whole time: live life, allow the unexpected, explore new territories, and enjoy the ride.
