"Many people fail in life, not for lack of ability or brains or even courage but simply because they have never organized their energies around a goal."
Elbert Hubbard

Today while I was at the gym walking on the treadmill I came across an article about reaching your goals by Julie Jansen, a life coach.
  The first thing she mentioned was that one had to think "smart"  This is an acronym for Specific, Measurable, Attainable,Realistic and Timeline. So you need to evaluate your goal and if it isn't  realistic then change it so it is more manageable.
The second thing she mentioned was to simplify.  If your goal is too complicated then it may be too big to take on all at once.  Your goal should be able to be stated in one simple sentence.
The third thing she said is to make it meaningful.  That means it should be meaningful to you.  What you make as your goal is your desire and no one elses.
The last thing she said was to get a "goal"model.  Someone who has accomplished what you are trying to obtain.  You can get lots of insight from their succcesses and their failures.
So go ahead and make a goal, plan it out, and follow it through.  You can do this!
