Those who accomplish and achieve have goals and take the actions necessary to reach those goals. One of the most accomplished people I've ever met told me that he decided to write down 101 goals for himself.
In contrast, people without clear goals don't have a target to reach. Since he had so many goals, he was certain that he would reach many of them.
"I call to you witness today the heavens and the earth, I have placed life and death before you, the blessing and the curse.
Therefore choose life so that you may live, you and your progeny" (Deut. If humans are to have the will to choose freely, the world must look natural.
Feel what it will be like when you achieve your worthwhile goals. Believe that with the Almighty's help you will be able to reach the goals for which you strive. If I surrender my will and turn my life over completely to the will of God, do I not thereby abrogate my power of free choice? Take the example of a child who receives money for his birthday.
An immature child may run off to the toy store or candy store and spend the money on everything his heart desires.
For the most part, nature takes its natural course.Other people might feel overwhelmed by a large number of goals.They might be telling themselves, "There is so much I want to do and there is only a limited amount of time to do it all." For them, a single, relatively easy-to-reach goal might be best.We can choose to follow our own whims or we can choose to adopt the will of an omniscient Father. turn my will over to God, and seek to do only that which is His will for me.With stories and insights, Rabbi Twerski's new book Twerski on Machzor makes Rosh Hashanah prayers more meaningful.
