Recently, I asked one of my clients what her goals were. When she struggled to answer this question, I knew that she was not alone. We often either minimize our goals or don't set goals out of fear of failure.

If you don't know what it is that you want, your brain will accect the minimum and your actions will follow. Setting goals for yourself allows you to have a clear direction of where it is that you want to go, and your brain will think of ways for you to achieve these goals.
