A goal is: The purpose toward which an endeavor is directed; an objective.
The term goal relates to my favorite term I learned in undergraduate Sociology "self-fulfilling prophecy" : is a prediction that, in being made, actually causes itself to become true. Although examples of self-fulfilling prophecies can be found in human literature as far back as ancient Greece, it is 20th century sociologist Robert K. Merton who is credited with coining the expression "self-fulfilling prophecy" and formalising its structure and consequences. In his book Social Theory and Social Structure, Merton gives the following definition: The self-fulfilling prophecy is, in the beginning, a false definition of the situation evoking a new behaviour which makes the original false conception come true.

I believe in combining the two "goals" and "self-fulfilling prophecy" and for some powerful momentum!
