How have your goals changed since you started?

At first I just wanted to get fitter, but now I have definite aims in terms of body composition- I want to be 100kg at about 8-10% BF (I'm 6ft and I don't use AAS). It will probably take me a long time to acheive but I'm determined to get there. How many times have your goals shifted since you started training?

    I would say my goals have changed with respect to using AAS I have decided to be completely natural and see how far I can go.Nothing against people who use AAS at all its just a route I don't want to take.

    Same here. My goals aren't really extreme so I don't think I should use AAS to get there.

    Its good to see your approach to BB you never know your goals may change once you get the bug it just worrys me to see how many posts there are from newbies asking about cycles in the steroid forum before they have reached their potential unassisted

    I always think though, If you reach your potential 'limit' then go down the gear route you would be always using AAS to hold onto your 'over-genetic-limit' gains.

    Wouldnt it make more sense to use AAS to reach that limit so you can then maintain naturally?

    But then how would you asses what your natural potential is if you use AAS from day one

    Simple, stop taking AAS then see what you are left with.

    TT- why is it a goal of yours to never be happy with your physique? Seems a little strange - goals are meant to be positive arent they?

    fine to be happy with your physique if thats what you want but for my goals which is to compete and be good at that the moment i am happy i will 'ease off'

    i will never be the best therefore i will not be happy as there are better physiques out there and in terms of competing its about being the best you can be

    the best in never where you are at

    "you can always be slightly better"

    slightly bigger, slightly more balanced, more cut, more vascular

    nobody is perfect and if i (with my mindset am happy) then i have no place to excel from there

    at a guess it will be because of striving for improvement.

    i dont know anybody that can say they have a perfect body, there is always something that can be a little bigger/defined/ toned

    i agree with it as a principle of bodybuilding, it shows hunger for constant progression which is very much needed if someone is to compete.

    OK gotcha, so Its more of a mindset to keep you pushing hard with the aim of being the best you can rather than the best.

    Yeah sure, and its something I adhere to myself. At the moment - although Im happy with my physique, its far from complete and I have a long way to go.

    I think I will always strive to improve but I can still be happy with my physique whilst doing so.

    i cannot be happy if i can be better in terms of competing

    plenty:

    bigger
    more ripped
    more balanced

    guys out there to 'hunt down' over the next X amount of years

    the moment i say "that will do" is the moment i will never get better and progress

    this is my mindset now, it has been different in the past and may be different in the future

    When i got big, i wanted to get bigger,
    When i got ripped, i wanted to get ripped even more,
    When i bench pressed 100kg, i wanted 110kg,
    and so on, and so on.
