“If you set your goals ridiculously high and it’s a failure, you will fail above everyone else’s success.”
I would argue that if your goal doesn’t scare you just a little bit, it isn’t set high enough. If your goals are too easy, they just aren’t going to make you stretch. They won’t make you push, make you dig deep and find that extra effort and energy you didn’t know you had.
Goals shouldn’t be targets set to where you know you can hit them, they should scare you because you really don’t know if you can reach them. Only then will you find what you are really made of.
Are you willing to aim so high that you might fail? If failure isn’t a real and potential option, your goals are too easy…
