We are told to keep our goals reasonable. - Don't do it.
It is better to shoot for the stars and just make the moon, than shoot for a menial job as a wage slave and achieve it. It is better to start your own business than build a business for someone else.
Goals are built from dreams, so let your dreams run wild.
Dwell on your dreams a while, embellish them. It is very popular with the young to want to rule the world. If they think about the attendant responsibilities, they may choose to opt for some of the perks instead. That is the start of forming goals from your dreams.
If you are afraid to dream extravagantly, you will not discover the full extent of your wishes, or their costs. With celebrity comes lack of privacy and a lack of freedom of movement. Perhaps being a famous author would be more to your liking than being a movie star.
Dream big, and find out what it is that makes that dream appealing to you. Take those appealing parts and craft them into your goals.
Set wonderful goals.
Develop plans to achieve.
Write down your goals and review them frequently.
