Goal setting and following your vision is not new, it has been a struggle for millennia. This has been repeated throughout history (see Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill). To truly get to success, you need to know what you are aiming for.
Excerpt from Letters from a Stoic:
“For whatever we do ought to be in harmony with this; no man can set in order the details unless he has already set before himself the chief purpose of his life.”
“The reason we make mistakes is because we all consider the parts of life, but never life as a whole.”
