$last_goals = '';
if($this->session->userdata('user_from') == 'log') //After login value come From db                     
    $last_goals = $getdesired[0]->ds_goals;

Solution: It's work..

Add Blank Rule.

$this->form_validation->set_rules('field_name', '', '');

In textarea you are trying to echo set_value() similar to input field.but in textarea value can retain only if you giving the value between<textarea><?php echo set_value('name'); ?></textarea>

ravi142 He is not asking for validation.

I know about <textarea><?php echo set_value('name'); ?></textarea> but i want to put in above code.that why i have post code.
