So many self-developping books/articles mention about being successful. And many of them put this thing as the first step: Find and focus on your goal!
Given that a life is once and short, it is the quite crucial to find your own goal. Once you find one, you just need to go for it, and the process itself is rewarding experience.
But many people I talked to come to ask the same question: “What is my goal and how to find it?” As there are tons of different goals for different person, there is no straight answer to which one is the right goal. But I think one of the ways to help to find one is go back to your past.
