  • 21 years. My life changed a lot when I turned 21 and I realized what was going on around me, so I made some important decisions.

  • It's changed over the years. I've done a lot of stuff. More than most people ever will.

    Here's the conclusion I came to. The only thing that matters in life is the lives you touch in a positive way. The way you win at life, is to have lots of people who remember you at your death.

  • At 25, I thought I had it together
    At 26, I realized I was wrong and needed to catch up.
    At 27 and 28, my engines were on constant afterburner.
    At 29, I stopped and caught a breather
    At 30, I realized I did a good job catching up, Im 40 now and even today Im reevaluating my goals.

  • I think when I was 18, and got cheated on by my girlfriend at that time, I realized nothing made me happier than being in love, so it's become the only thing I truly desire in life.

  • I had a rough childhood , since i can remember the struggle and pain i always knew my life goal is a stable and happy future for myself and my family. But it depends from person to person. While for example someone who was sick wants to become a doctor , our past influences that choice quite a bit.

  • I think i was 14 when i wrote down a list of that on paper. i had 12 points and it hasn't changed, im still crossing those out one by one.

    everyone knows what they want if you think it through with a clear mind and an opened heart, trust me. just take enough time to think about it.

  • 24 and still figiring shit out. Everyone goes at their own pace. Life isn't a race. The goal should be to enjoy as much as you can.
