Soul Goals; Ones Spiritual Destruction

      There are many Christians in America today whose goal is to reach their full potential. They have employed "life coaches" to help them with this goal. With this emphasis being so consuming, I ask several questions:

1)Is the potential of a human being, as man defines it,  the untimate goal of God for us?
2) Is it possible to reach our potential (as God defines it) without letting Him crucify our flesh, by submitting totally to Him, rather than the exercising of our self-will?
5)Does determination get us there, or does it just get us accomplishing our own goals apart from God?
6) If we do accomplish our own goals in this way, who gets glorified? (or the attention; the person or God?)
7) Are God's goals for us, His creation, the same as ours or are they diametrically opposed?

Matt. 7:13,14-
"Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it."

Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord.
