Drive your goals with power of enthusiam

             Everyone needs a goal in his life. But every goal that we aim for should have meaning. Lot of times it has happened with us that we want something badly and when we finally get it we don’t know what to do with it. This can be better understood with the following story:  A man once brought new dog to his home. But it had a habit of sitting by the roadside waiting for vehicles that passed by the road. When a vehicle passes through he would run down the road, barking and trying to overtake it. This used to continue for some days. So one day the man’s wife asked him "Do you think our dog is ever going to catch a car?" The man replied, "That is not what bothers me. What bothers me is what he would do if he ever caught one”. The point is many people in life behave like that dog who is pursuing pointless goals. These people follow meaningless paths and end up with nothing.

Goals give a sense of direction to our life. Having a passion for something wouldn’t get us to our goals we need to be in right direction towards it. Enthusiasm without direction is like wildfire and leads to frustration. Goals give a sense of direction. Would you sit in a train or an airplane without knowing where it is taking you? Even then people go through their life without any aim for their life.

           “A burning desire is the starting point of all accomplishment.”

Just like a small fire cannot give much heat, a weak desire cannot produce great results...

So keep trying because when you have ambition for something you will find a way to fulfill it. Like bill Bradley said, Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in”.
