For one thing, it allows us to contribute to society, contribute to the world. For another, it gives us esteem. It gives us positive self-esteem when we accomplish goals. And the last reason to accomplish goals is to realize our potential as human being. To see all that we are capable of in this lifetime.
Let me tell you the REAL reason I accomplish goals! It is to stay out of trouble!
Accomplishing goals keeps you out of trouble!
I’m always accomplishing goals, and if I weren't, I don’t know what I’d be doing, but it probably wouldn't be good. When we don’t accomplish goals we can:
- Turn in to slackers, dead weights, pulling society down, because we’re not contributing anything.
- When we do not accomplish goals we can become burnouts. We can indulge in drugs and alcohol until we just fry ourselves away.
- Lastly, when we don’t accomplish goals we become like a rotting piece of food on the counter, stale and stagnant, just rotting away. Withering away, rotten.
Accomplishing goals keeps you out of trouble.
Then there are all these wonderful benefits to accomplishing goals. Getting into a great relationship. Taking care of your body and experiencing good health. Getting your black belt in karate. Getting your degree in school. All those wonderful things can happen when you accomplish goals.
But remember accomplish goals to keep your booty out of trouble!
