Whether you know it or not, we all have a goal.
Let’s start with a cliché saying, ‘No wind can help a ship that does not know the port to which it will go.’
The subject that we need to perceive from the beginning is the difference between the goal and the dream.
If I explain it with a simple determination, I will permanently convey the difference.
If dreams turn into goals, you will feel perfect. If goals turn into dreams, you feel like crap.
So the difference is a straightforward chronological situation.
First, you imagine it; then you put it into a reality.
The higher you go about dreams (see topic: disappointment), the harder it will be to pull the subject into the reality of being a target. Of course, if you’re confident, you can dream whatever you want – it’s not wrong either. However, this instrument will lose its function after a while, as many unfulfilled dreams will cause metal fatigue.
Yes, we have now turned your dream into a goal. And no matter how high your expectations are, let’s go with a metaphor to express the difficulty of reaching the destination.
Conditions: You live in Turkey. You have a medium income.
Goal 1: I will go to Fenerbahce seaside and have coffee at the weekend.
Goal 2: I will go to Café de Flore and have coffee at the weekend.
The above conditions and the image under them explain your location and target situation. To underline that this metaphor is correct, let me state that labyrinths are not just riddles but the simplest form of the chain of decisions and results. Especially not from a bird’s eye view, but when you’re in it.
While going through the labyrinth, every crossroad you come across is a decision; every road you come to a dead-end, and you have to turn back is a disappointment; what you achieve when you reach the end of the road is your goal.
It is not easy to make a “decision” and expect good results, especially in corridors where you only see the walls in front of you, and you do not know which one will lead where. But in real life, some can do it. So, let’s intervene a little bit in our metaphor.
Let’s go a little higher to the decisions you will make and try to see from afar.
Even though everything is unclear, you can get some idea according to your distance from the target. You can see dead ends nearby.
The equivalent of your foresight here is how high you can look.
And there is also the luck factor; even if you have no foresight, you still theoretically have a chance to make the right decision at every crossroads. But I can’t say it applies to most people.
