What do you want to accomplish in life?

I always wanted to be a teacher, but never had a chance to go to college. Well, when my oldest son was ready for kinder-garden, my husband and I decided to home-school. I home-schooled my children when they were elementary school age. Those are the grades I would have like to teach, if I had become a teacher. So, in a way, I was able to fulfill my desire to become a teacher, by teaching my own children. What do you want to accomplish in life? If you have accomplished a goal, what is it? Did you accomplish your goal the way you expected?

I achieved my goal. As to become CDISC analyst. But still there is something I need to do. For me it's not an easy task to achieve that. Worked hard to achieve that. I am noway related to software but still able to get a job in that. For me keeping a goal is to shape up our life.

I would really like to designs many houses and put up an architectural firm of my own. I'm praying that God will grant my desires. :-) God Bless us

I've always wanted to be working with special children as a Physical Therapist, but I always failed in getting my license. Meanwhile, some people have discovered my potential in interpersonal and communication skills with different type of people, so they suggested me to focus on it. I endorsed myself to language training to work out on it. Later on, great opportunities coming to my way. I've met foreign people online with special children, and even in distance they would ask me the possible management for their cases which has become the challenge on me to provide them an exact presentation by researching and studying the cases.

Hi, I've always wanted to be an accountant or a manager. I also like to spend time with children which made me thought of becoming a teacher. But just like you I never had the chance to finish college. I had accomplished my 2nd goal in the list though. I worked hard to achieve it so I'm kind of proud about it.

I also aspire to be a software developer . But I have also same problem that I am not a good book junkie. Frankly speaking I don't like to read novels or long stories as such. But I could not accomplish my dream job yet. Perhaps one day I will find it.

Over the years, I realize that I want to be able to be a giver, not just a receiver. Be a blesser and not just being blessed. To distribute, not just to receive. That's my life goal today.

I have not accomplished anything very significant in life at this point. If I did, then there will be no reason for me to go and try hard to work anymore. And I will just be better, 6 feet under the ground alread.

I have always enjoyed math and physics because I have always loved learning about technology. During my senior year of high school, I finally decided I want to enter the robotics industry someday. For me, it would be a great opportunity to be part of the workforce that helps develop the progressing advancements in the field of robotics.

I want to be a dentist but my parents won't let me so I was forced to take up education which I did not finish. I'm thinking of going back to school and study again just to attain what I want but I realized that I may not be able to handle my time working and studying at the same time. Even though I was able to finish and attain my first love, I was able to achieve my second love which is putting up a clothing and accessory line business.

I did everything I could to be able to finish studying and find a good job. There are times that I had to work as a helper, to sell things of any kind and do errand works just to help me with my expenses regarding my studies. As of now I can say that I was able to achieve my goal. What I want to pursue this time is to be able to know more about online earning so that I could also share it with my fellowmen. I am not very much confident as of now because I think i still have a lot of things to learn. But I am hoping that someday this goal can be achieved so I am doing my best to learn new things everyday. Have a nice day!

If you have a high school diploma, in most states you can be a substitute teacher...You will not be paid as much as the college substitutes, but if you still have the urge most schools really need substitutes. My biggest goal in life was to see my girls through high school. I had cancer when they were 5 and 10...Not only did I see them through high school but college too. Now the youngest is in OCS. That was not the only goal I had...My life has been one goal after another and most of them have been accomplished.

That's just unfortunate for not being able to finish college. Although it's okay since there are a lot of successful people who weren't able to finish college. As for hopes for your child, I hope he achieves success when he grows up. Many parents put such plans to their child. That's why there are kids who become rebels and parents become disappointed about their kids. I was also a rebel against my parents but that was just because they were pretty strict when I was a kid. I understand now, though, why they were like that back then.
