Set A Goal - But Never Make Your Life Miserable In Achieving It !!!

Having set a goal in life, it is always advisable to be patient and enjoy the life normally till it is accomplished instead of making our lives stressful after the goal.

Be Ambitious and Set A Goal - And Be Cool!

One should be ambitious and there is no harm in setting a goal in one's life!

But one shouldn't make his/her life miserable while trying to accomplishing it!

One shouldn't forget that he/she has the life to live till the time the goal is accomplished and this life is also to be lived happily, instead of making it miserable one till the time the goal is not achieved!

We have been provided with a fixed span of live and in my opinion, one should enjoy it to the fullest as we never know what is there for us tomorrow!

My Personal Exprience : My Goal was looking Impossible To Achieve But I Was Determined!

I had a fascination for music instruments right from my childhood. Having grown up, as a teen aged I managed to procure a banjo and I used to enjoy playing it.

One day I happened to hear some one playing an Electric Hawaiian Guitar on a Local stage. The sound of the music mesmerized me and then and there I have decided to learn the instrument and also to own one.

It was a big thing for me, as my father was not in a position financially to provide a brand new Guitar for me as he had lot of responsibilities to take care of four children.

In spite of knowing the results I just asked him for the instrument for which he expressed his inability in a pleasing manner.

But I never deterred from my decision. I opened the top of my banjo and I altered it to a Hawaiian guitar, and instead of using a steel bar I used to use an empty Injection bottle to get tunes like ones we get on Hawaiian guitar.

I managed to get one mouth piece of a telephone from scrap Market to use it as a pickup and I used to play my self made instrument after connecting it to my radio.

This went on for few months.

My Determination Paid, While I was Never Unhappy !

Having noted my determination and the plight my father got highly impressed and to my surprise he presented me a brand New Electric Hawaiian guitar, with which I won several prizes in various competitions.

Thus here what I want to imply is, that I had a goal of getting a Hawaiian guitar and to play it to my satisfaction.

But instead of getting frustrated as I was unable to get it immediately I made a make shift arrangement with my banjo to live my life and enjoyed playing it!

While doing so I have shown my determination and madness towards the instrument which my father could make it out to present me with my dream instrument!

Remember, Goals Take Sweet Time Of Their Own To get Acieved!

So in life we all have some set goals and these goals will take their own sweet time to get accomplished.

Till that time, we should remember that we need to live our life in a happy and enjoyable way instead of spending the same in stressful manner to accomplish the goal!

Am I right?

It is the journey that matters in the end. Reaching the goal without enjoying the journey proves a pyrrchic victory in the end! siva
