I believe that setting goals is important. If you set a goal to accomplish something, it is more likely to achieve that goal. Although goal setting is important, it is only a small portion of becoming successful. Those that write their goals and hope their goals come true are delusional. Action is important as well as goal setting.
Wishing for success won’t make you successful. Most successful people find something they are passionate about and work hard to achieve it. What is hard work? That question can be debatable. Most successful people work long hours and efficiently to achieve great results. If you are passionate about something, then is it really hard work? Successful people generally love what they do. It is more like playing a game for long hours than actually hard work. To achieve success requires hard work, not just wishful thinking!
