Since we are comparing verbs. i.e. goals, we should use "as"

like is used to compare nouns, I also dont like the use of like when listing examples...

anyway I would go with E!

E it is. Need "as" to compare and need a subject and a verb.

"it" clearly refers to owning and living...

I guess 'goals' is a plural abstract noun.
