    Default have never been

    I have never been achieved so far but now I decided to achieve something that may be learning English or earning money.

    Please correct my sentence.

    'achieve' means to accomplish in the sense of reaching/attaining a goal with effort.

    The way I see it:

    You can't achieve a process, such as learning. But you can achieve a goal of improving your English skills. Learning is the process, 'skills' is the goal. You can undertake smth like learning.
