I think everyone's main goal in life changes depending on what stage in life you are in . When I was in highschool my main goal was to get good grades so that I would qualify for scholarships to get me through college since my parents were poor and so was I. I felt that was my ticket to college and it was. Goal accomplished.
When I got to college my goal was to continue to get good grades and when I changed my major, my goal was to get accepted into my program of study. After that my goal was to graduate and be able to find a job in my field. Goal accomplished. When I graduated I became a mom then my goal was to work and be able to still be a mom. I worked part time and the goal was accomplished. Now that I have three children my goal has become to be able to raise them all as good people, and pray to live long enough to teach them to take care of themselves financially, and be good productive members of society. That goal is still in progress...but it is currently my main goal.
