Allow It to Take a Lifetime to Achieve
If you create a life mission statement or a life goal, it should be so high to achieve that it will take a lifetime to reach it. I learned that creating a life mission is one of the best ways to stay focused every single day. It is something you look forward to working on and pursuing every single day. What good is it to just a have goals that you can achieve in a few days or year? Creating a goal that takes years to achieve must mean it's SUPER HUGE! It must be able to scare and excite you at the same time.
Ted Turner, founder of CNN, once said his father told him to set goals so high that they couldn’t be achievable in your lifetime. So Ted said his goal is to help save the world.
Ted said in a great interview, “If you are working to help others or make the world better, you’ll be a lot happier than if you are trying to make things better for yourself. I think selfish people are not as happy as generous people, because the real satisfaction and joy of all, I believe, is helping others.”
