Michael Laitman, tells a story about finding happiness during difficult situations by setting goals. He says:

Three men were working together & lifting heavy equipment. One acknowledged the effort it required but kept going, the second talked about the financial reward that motivated him, and the third expressed a sense of purpose, mentioning that he was building a temple.

Despite the challenges, they continued working together, each driven by their motivations and supporting each other to achieve their common goal.

Building a temple seems more manageable because it gives a bigger purpose. This is the key to finding happiness in any situation, including difficult ones. We can always dream of bigger and better things if we think of a higher goal, and we would thus be wise to try to do something meaningful, as it gives us a reason to work.

Setting goals is not just a way to achieve success — it’s a powerful tool that can help us find happiness, even during the most challenging times. When we have a clear objective, we can focus our energy and efforts on achieving it brick by brick.

Every tiny bit of progress we make is a step closer to our ultimate goal, and that sense of accomplishment can be incredibly inspiring and motivating.

But the true beauty of setting great goals in life lies in the ripple effect it creates. When we lead by example and show others the power of having meaningful goals, we can inspire them to do the same.

This creates a chain reaction of positivity and growth, where everyone strives to be their best selves and work towards a happier, more fulfilling life.

So, let’s set our sights on greatness and inspire others to do the same — because amazing things can happen when we work towards our goals together.
