    hope all your goals are vs will be achived

    ex:

    a) Hope all your goals are achieved.
    b) Hope all your goals will be achieved.


    Both sounds right grammatically, but A) is the norm, right?

    Thanks in advance.

    No. In my opinion, B is more natural.

    Re: hope all your goals are vs will be achived

    When I did google search for both, A) came up way more.

    I must admit B) sounded more grammatically natural to me.

    Personally, I would be inclined to use (a).
