    What's Your Goal in Life?

    What do you guys want to accomplish in life? This can be anything from having your kids grow up and move out, gaining more then $1,000,000 in total net assets, dying at an age of 80...you name it

    It may sound trite, but my goal in life is to raise my kids into responsible, honest, hard-working, good and loving human beings.

    A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. ~Forest E. Witcraft

    Helping as many people as I can...which is what I try to do every day. And my guess is that will lead to affecting the world positively...at least I hope it does.

    My father taught me many lessons, but I still think the most important one was kinda on this topic. He would tell me that people tend to think that the problems of the world where too big for one person to make a difference, but that was the wrong way to look at things. if every day you set out to make the world a little better in some small way, it adds up. This philosophy showed best when we would stop at the local convenience store to grab a drink and sandwich. No matter how bad a day he was having, he always had a smile and a nice word for the person working there, making their day just a little better. They would in turn be more likely to treat the next customer nicely, and so on it went. One small act, making the world just a little better.

    My mother now, she taught me about strength. Life through her more troubles than any one person should ever endure, and yet she got through the hard times, and is now happy and well off.

    I think with that in mind, my goal in life is to be as much like my parents as possible. I never appreciated them enough, now dad is dead, and mom is in another state.

    I have no goal.

    The point of the journey is not to arrive.

    To one day become 100% self sufficient in all aspects of life. I think todays society has lost much of this. So much of the time we work indirectly for what we need. I would like to see us go back to a more direct system.

    I said changing the world positively... or my community positively.

    And also other.

    My real goal in life, is to be happy.
