In brief: Motivation & reward
Making goals gives some individuals motivation to accomplish those goals.
Some provide rewards for themselves or witness rewards (weight loss, improved confidence/self-esteem, etc.) if reaching those goals. One key is to make these goals realistic based on your age, fitness level and time allotted to reach these goals.
