If you rely on someone else you can only go as far as they go.
Defining your personal goals in life is a big achievement in itself. However goals are not just there to sit in your journal or even pinned to the wall to look at when you get a spare minute. Goals are there as a destination which needs to be worked towards as your life progresses, and you are the driver in charge of the transport which will get you along that journey. So, having decided what your goal is, the next stage is to take an assertive path towards setting out how you will achieve it.
