There’s a famous quote from Zig Ziglar that says, “If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.” These words are typically used to inspire people without goals, to motivate them to work toward something rather than bemoaning everything that’s wrong with their life.
For me, I’m thinking of these words today to encourage myself to persevere when life takes turns that keep me from reaching the goals I’ve set for myself. When you’re a goal-setter, you can get frustrated when you run into unforeseen obstacles impede your progress, but do your best to look on the bright side.
Would you rather be frustrated in life because you’re not reaching your goals as fast as you’d like, or because you have no goals at all?
