☆ aim  目標
Your “aim” is your goal or your objective. You could also use words like: intention, plan, desire, or target. In this simple sentence: “What is your aim?” you could use any of the words I have just mentioned, and the meaning would be the same.
She is studying hard because her aim is to finish her degree in 2 years instead of 3.
The company’s aim is to sell 100 units per month.
His aim is to win the tournament.
We split up recently; we just had different desires and aims in life.
You can also talk about someone doing something “with the aim of achieving X.” In this grammatical situation, you don’t say, “with the aim to achieve X.” For example:
They arrived at the movie early with the aim of getting a front row seat.
The company changed safety regulations with the aim of reducing workplace injuries.
“Aim of achieving” is used because it is a noun, whereas if you said “aim to achieve” it would be using it like a verb, so grammatically incorrect to say “with the aim to”. (You could of course just say, “The company aims to reduce workplace injuries by changing safety regulations.”)
