The claim that positive self perceptions or self beliefs are key elements of a positive and healthy personality has put them firmly on the political agenda. The idea that positive selfesteem, in particular, immunises people against susceptibility to a multitude of social problems has become hugely fashionable. The Achievement of life goals are cognitive representations that guide behaviour to a competence related future end state. Existing theories and empirical findings suggest that life achievement goals are potentially related to life satisfaction. However, the relationship between life achievement goals and self development remains relatively unexplored in psychology literature. In this study, we examined how, why, and when achievement goals affect life satisfaction with implications to self development. The self related perceptions of an individual are of great importance in creating, sustaining, improving and achieving the life goals of any individual. These self - related perceptions include self concept, self efficacy, self - esteem, self image, and self - worth. Every individual irrespective of the race, gender, culture or academic level, has ambitions, aspirations as well as goals in life which he she aims or dreams to achieve. How to achieve these goals is based on every individual's self - perception, which determines his her attitude, resilience and above all motivation to stay focus on achieving that which they set out to. The aim of this article was to highlight the importance of these self related perceptions to every individual those with positive self - related perceptions will have a positive outcome in their thriving to achieve their goals and other life related ambitions and the reverse is true for those with negative self related perceptions.
