What are you selling yourself?
Before we can convince anyone else of anything, we first convince ourselves. What have you convinced yourself about your goals?
Are your goals backed by plans? Are your goals exciting, enticing, and tasty? Are you so proud of your goals that you can't wait to tell other people?
Or are you building a case for the status quo? I'd let that go. The status quo is far too heavy to carry and leads to nowhere. There is no real status quo, only slow decay.
Instead, I like to make a case for action. A case for moving forward toward achieving new goals.
How about you?
