I highly recommend that you check out this amazing video by Earl Nightingale in which he discusses how conformity has taken the courage away from people. Instead of standing out and aiming for fruitful goals, people conform. They follow the pack, and thus the reason why most people are not happy with their lives.

He also discusses how goals are crucial to success, which he defines as the progressive realization of a worthy ideal. I particularly like how he says that you become what you think about. If people were to audit their thoughts and see what they think about on a graph, they would see why they are in the position that they are in. As well, I enjoyed his analogy of a ship that leaves a port and that has a destination. 99.9% of the time, it will get there. However, if the ship had no destination to go to, it would just wander around the sea, never getting anywhere. Brilliant way to easily explain why we need goals in life.

If you would like to get the entire course, check out the Strangest Secret:
