Set One's Sights on Something

If you set your sights on something, you are determined to achieve a goal. For example:

The boxer
set his sights on the world heavyweight championship.
The company
set its sights on entering the Asian market.
Two local swimmers
have set their sights on the Olympic Games.

The video below shows how daredevil Nik Wellenda
set his sights on tightrope-walking across Niagara Falls, a feat that he later accomplished on 15 June 2012.
