"Personal fulfillment is achievement of life goals which are important to an individual, in contrast to the goals of society, family and other collective obligations. Personal fulfillment is an ongoing journey for a human individual."

I think it should be "which is important", because the "which" right now refer to the "achievement" and the achievement is in the singular form.

Please correct me if I am wrong

I just realised that the "which" is refer to the "life goals", not the "achievement".

  • You need the word that not which. – Yosef Baskin Oct 19 '20 at 13:36

Replacing "which" with "that" would be better here as the clause following "are" is restrictive, i.e., removing this clause would change the meaning of this statement. Thus would also further simplify the use of "are. "
