Completely agree. I wish I had internalized this (as I experienced such sentences before, dismissing them) earlier in my life. I wish everyone would internalize them as early as possible. Otherwise one tends to ideal goals (that are not ideal at all) achieving often less than one can.

But how do you determine in advance whether a particular worthwhile goal is achievable or not ?

Methinks that the only way to make sure would be to try it out, and if in the end it turns out to be unachievable then oh, well, at least you tried and probably learned something valuable in the process.

Acting otherwise, most really interesting but difficult goals would be discarded beforehand and that hardly leads to progress or personal improvement. One can also learn a lot from failures.
