The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score.” – Bill Copeland
Do you know people who have a passive approach towards life? They live their lifes just “as it comes”. They don’t set any goals for their life.

They inspire me, they motivate me to achieve even more. When I spend too much time with people who just live their lifes day by day, I get an “uneasy” and bored feeling.
Did you ever make this experience? That you want to escape from some people? People who talk all day long about the same stuff, the same problems, the same stories? For me that’s not inspiring at all.
I want to surround myself with people who love to set goals, who love to learn new things, who love to get further in life, who love to achieve something.
Sometimes I set too many or too high goals for myself and then I get frustrated that I don’t reach them. I still have to learn to be realistic that I don’t overcharge myself.
