I agree with you it is not the end of the world if one doesn’t achieve ones goals. However, I think this quote also deals with the fact that we should have goals. We should have ambitions and that they should be high- realistic but high so that we stretch our selves to achieve the best. By trying to achieve this we better ourselves and if we don’t achieve it, there is no disgrace in it- actually by aspiring higher we have done better than without aspiration in any case.
