Look for Every Opportunity to Reduce Uncertainty
In physics, Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle had a profound influence on science and eventually earned him a Nobel prize. This principle states that, even though it is scientifically possible to determine exactly how a class of particles will behave in general, it is not possible to predict exactly which of those particles will behave that way specifically. As a re-sult, there always exists a degree of uncertainty in physics, no matter how sound the general theory.
Fear Magnifies Challenges Mentally
Do not let failure be an option. Do not be afraid of anything, including fear of failure itself. It is not failure itself but fear of failure that is the biggest obstacle on the path to success in a Christian’s life. Failure makes us stronger, more flexible, and more decisive, but fear of failure paralyzes one’s thoughts and actions and hinders us from doing the things required to make it on the way to success. One young reporter asked Thomas Watson, the founder of IBM, how he became successful. Mr. Watson answered, “Would you like me to give you a formula for… success? It’s quite simple. Double your rate of failure.” Success is on the other side of failure, so dare to move forward.
What is Purpose?
Everything in life has a purpose. Everyone on this planet was born with and for a purpose. It is this purpose that is the only source of meaning. Without purpose, life is an experiment or a haphazard journey that results in frustration, disappointment, and failure. Without purpose, life is subjective, or it is a trial-and-error game that is ruled by environmental influences and the circumstances of the moment. Likewise, in the absence of purpose, time has no meaning, energy has no reason, and life has no precision. Therefore, it is essential that we understand and discover our purpose in life so that we can experience an effective, full, and rewarding life.
Be True To Yourself
Perhaps the most important value of all is that of integrity. A billionaire once said to me, “Integrity is not so much a value in itself; it is rather the value that guarantees all the other values.” Wow! This was a great insight for me. Once you have decided that you are going to live consistent with a value, your level of integrity determines whether or not you follow through on your commitment. The more you discipline yourself to live consistent with the very best you know, the greater is your level of personal integrity. And the higher your level of integrity, the happier and more powerful you will feel in everything you do.

The four main reasons why many people don't set goals

Develop a big-picture mindset.
“Where success is concerned, people are not measured in inches, or pounds, or college degrees, or family background; they are measured by the size of their thinking.” —DAVID SCHWARTZ.
Success Is Predictable
The great question of philosophy has always been, “How shall we live to be happy?” The greatest minds of all time have dedicated years, often entire lifetimes, to seeking the answers to this question. Your ability to ask and answer this question correctly for yourself is the key to everything that happens to you and to everything that you accomplish. The worst use of time and life is to work hard to climb the ladder of success only to find that it is leaning against the wrong building.

Being Accountable to Someone Is Beneficial for Your Personal Development
Accountability can help you grow and achieve your goals. If you're accountable to someone, there's no way you can hide from your goals. When they ask you how it's going, they'll expect an answer. And if you tell them that everything is great, yet the truth is that nothing has been done, then the discomfort of a lie will force you to change.
The Picture In Our Heads
The worst thing that can happen to a person is to live without understanding why he is alive. The picture we see every day gives us hope and reasons why we exist, If we sleep every night and wake up with no purpose, it is a tragedy of life because if the purpose of life is not understood, an individual will always end up with regret or living life as a burden because disaster is unavoidable.
