I think the moment we start realizing that our life and our circumstances are our responsibility and there is no blame on anyone, including ourselves (we just didn't know better and now we do) that is the moment that spiritual goals become part and parcel of our life. We realize that even for the most material things we want, the underlying motivation has to be joy and love and this is not just for us but extends to all we know. We can't want things which will hurt others in some way, this only brings our own vibrations down. Slowly we also start to understand that forgiveness and allowing is a big part of LOA and hence we move further along our spiritual awakening.

I Think Therefore I Am
Several years ago I personally set down on paper a list of personal characteristics outlining the kind of person I would like to be, put them in a book, and forgot about them (much like the "message in a box" technique). Today, I believe I have achieved a measure of success in being that person.
A person without goals is like a ship without a rudder. If you don't know where you are going, any destination (or no destination at all) is suitable.
I would love to be able to share with you this well-known anecdote about goal setting:
Unfortunately, it appears that the study never happened, that it's a sort of motivational urban myth.
Hanna, I believe that our entire life is a spiritual journey or experience. Therefore I would say that every goal is a spiritual goal. Our entire life purpose should be enlightment. Whether we want to accept it or not our goal as human beings is to re-connect to our true source which is the Universe.
