What Is Your Goal?/ ¿Cuál Es Tu Meta?




 
If You Never Set A Goal, You Will Never Achieve Anything In Life.

What Is Your Goal?

When we are small people are constantly asking us: What do you want to be when you grow up? 

When I was small, I had so many things I liked, so many things I wanted to do, that it made it very difficult for me to answer that question.

I decided to make lists of everything I liked in order to see which ones I could pick and which things I could join into one, but I could never decide. For many years I was a very indecisive person.

But I had the wrong idea of ​​what life is supposed to be. I thought that when one has a vocation, one is the best at that thing, and not just the best, but I thought I had to be the best at it naturally, without practice or anything. So I looked for things that I did better than anyone else, and the truth is that I gradually started to disappoint myself until I was at a place where I thought there was nothing I was supposed to be good at, and I gave up.

Growing up I realized that things in the world are not what I thought. It is impossible that every person in the world could be the best at something. There is always someone who is better than you and there is always someone that is worse.

Every person is born with an inclination towards something, maybe more than one thing. They are gifts that God gives us, we must learn skills to figure out how best to use them to fulfill the purpose God has given us in life.

If we have an interest, we must develop it, and definitely we must set goals. For all that time I wasted being undecided I could have used it to cultivate my interest, and perhaps I would have reached my goals and would have succeeded.

But there is something else I want you to understand, we must never stop make goals. Once we get one, we need to make another one and another and another.

Goals keep us alive, struggling to achieve something that gives us life. Once we stop, we have nothing to aspire to and we will not feel any satisfaction in life.

So please take a moment to think: what do you want to achieve in life?

Tell us your story.

¿Cuál Es Tu Meta?

Cuando uno es pequeño, a uno le preguntan en todo momento: ¿Qué quieres ser cuando seas grande? Pero yo de pequeña tenia tantas y tantas cosas que me gustaban, tantas que quería hacer, que se me hacía muy difícil contestar esa pregunta. 

Decidí ponerme a hacer listas de todo lo que me gustaba a ver que podía escoger y que cosas podía unir en una, pero nunca me pude decidir. Por Muchos Años fui una persona muy indecisa.

Pero yo tenía una idea equivocada de lo que se supone fuera la vida. Pensaba que cuando uno tiene una vocación, uno es el mejor, y no tan solo el mejor, sino que tenía que ser el mejor por naturaleza, sin práctica ni nada. O sea que me puse a buscar que cosas yo hacía mejor que nadie. Y la verdad fue que poco a poco fui desilusionándome con todo, hasta que llegue a un lugar donde pensé que no existía nada. Y me di por vencida.

Al crecer me di cuenta que el mundo no es como yo lo pensaba. Es imposible que cada persona en el mundo sea la mejor en algo. Siempre hay alguien que es mejor que uno y siempre hay alguien que es peor.

Cada persona nace con una inclinación hacia algo, tal vez a más de una cosa. Son regalos que Dios nos da, destrezas que debemos aprender a averiguar como mejor utilizarlas para cumplir el propósito que Dios nos ha dado en la vida.

Si tenemos un interés, debemos desarrollarlo, y definitivamente nos debemos trazar metas. Porque todo ese tiempo que yo desperdicié estando indecisa lo hubiese podido aprovechar cultivando mis intereses, y quizás mis metas ya las hubiese logrado. 

Pero hay algo más que quiero que entiendan, nunca debemos parar de trazarnos metas. Una vez logremos una, nos logramos otra y otra y otra. 

Las metas nos mantienen vivos, luchando por lograr algo que nos da vida. Una vez que paremos, no tendremos nada a que aspirar y no sentiremos ninguna satisfacción en la vida.

Así que ponte a pensar, ¿qué quisieras lograr en la vida? 

Cuéntanos tu historia.
