Gurudev, is it necessary to have a goal in life, or should we go with whatever comes to us?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

You should have one individual goal about what you want to do in life.
When there is a goal, life runs like a river. When there is no goal, the water is all over the field. A goal is for commitment. That is why you should have a goal, a Lakshya.

What is the goal? The goal is to achieve the highest, to become a Yogi; a Dhyani and to serve the world.
Serving the world is the real pooja (prayer).
