Set Yourself Goals to Achieve

Set high standards for your goals

Set high standards for your goals

Success is different for every person. We each have different expectations for how our life should end up, and we each have different skills that will help us get there.

However, regardless of our differences, we should all follow similar steps in life to bring us success.

1.)    Realize your passions.

For some, this might be the hardest part. Passion can be an elusive emotion when pitted against stress, insecurity or life restraints. Therefore, it’s extremely important to take the time to pay attention. If your life consists solely of what is required of you, then you most likely aren’t taking the proper amount of time and effort to learn who you are and what you want.

Knowing yourself is the first step, and like all relationships, it takes time and intention. For myself, journaling, meditation or conversations with friends helps me to decide what I’m passionate about. For you, it could be totally different. Try taking a drive by yourself, hiking or gardening. Quiet periods may give you the insight you need to find your passion.

2.)    Decide how you want to live those passions out.

This is also tough due to the sheer number of choices you have. For instance, if you’ve decided that you care about the environment, there are any number of career options to pursue. You could be a lobbyist, a nonprofit fundraiser or educator.

Here’s a secret though, you won’t know what you really like until you try it. After some research, decide how you’d like to live out your passion. Depending on what you’ve chosen, you may want to pursue an education. This could be as simple as reading a book or as complicated as getting a master’s degree.

3.)    Set small goals.

It’s not enough to say, I want to be a marine biologist! You must figure out the route that you should take to get there. You might get lucky and start on the ground floor of a company and work your way up the ladder, or you may have to go to school. This could take more research, but once you have some vision for your passion, you can do the fun part- Get started! Set goals and put yourself out there every day.

There is nothing wrong with setting the bar high for your goals as long as you are prepared to work hard and have the patience to reach them. If you break your main goal into smaller goals you will have the encouragement of experiencing success with every small goal you reach on the way to your main goal. As a motivational keynote speaker, this is my favorite part- helping you to form guidelines for reaching your goals effectively.

4.)    Believe it will happen.

This is probably the most important step, and it’s remarkably the one thing you have control over. If you’re passionate about something, you can no longer doubt your ability to get there. You MUST believe that it will happen. Write your goal down, verbalize it with someone who’s close to you, and look forward to the realization of your version of success.

Belief fuels your motivation and gives you the energy to keep going on the goals you’ve set. If you truly have faith in yourself, then you’ll automatically pursue what you need to pursue and your energy will connect to others who can help you get there.

These steps won’t create an instantaneous change, but they will set you on the path to live a passionate, dynamic life. You never know where you’ll end up but with the right intention, you’ll be pleased with the results.

Never Let Fear Paralyze You

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.home aloneWe all have our fears. It can be intimidating to move out of and try something new. Sometimes doubt and fear can even affect us when we are doing things we have done many times before.

You cannot allow fear stop you from leaving your comfort zone achieving something new. You will always have fears of some kind but you have to learn how to deal with them in order to be successful. If you don’t overcome your fears, you will have to live with regrets which will last longer and affect you more than the failure did. As a motivational speaker, here is my advice. 

Just do it.

Sure, you may completely mess something up, but so what? Failure is part of the process and if you never fail, then you haven’t done much. It’s much more scary to be boring then it is to be human and potentially mess up.

Believe that You will Succeed.

That being said, don’t assume that you’re going to fail. Put you’re full energy and intention to whatever your goal is and believe that you’ll get there. Remember when you were in highschool or college and believed that anything was possible? Channel that energy now and let that positive energy motivate you to work hard to make it happen.

Find a Partner in Crime.

Success needs a support system. Find a person who will believe in you when you’re discouraged. It could be your boss or it could be your sibling. Whoever it is, verbalize your goals with that person and keep them updated. They’ll be a big part of your success.

Everyone gets scared, but don’t wait until the situation is perfect before you move or you never will. All we have is now. Make it count.

Have you ever felt like you just can’t take any more and wish you could just stop the world and get off? If you have, chances are you made it through that tough time and you are stronger for it.

Professional speakers can help you find the silver lining that you might be missing.

You have to keep pushing on. The tide will eventually turn and you will get the good things you have worked for. You can’t afford to be passive and just hope that something good will happen. You have to persevere and work hard and have confidence in your ability to reach your dream.

There will always be obstacles in your path and sometimes they might seem to be insurmountable but there is always a way forward. You just have to have the self-confidence to keep trying and believe that things will get better. You cannot control everything in life; you can only give your best and persevere until things improve. Listen to a professional speaker for advice if you can’t find the answers yourself.

Making Mistakes is Better than Doing Nothing

  Even if you’re not achieving as quickly as you’d like, making an attempt will get you further than being afraid to try

you further than being afraid to try

No matter what you do, doing something will most likely get you farther than doing nothing at all. Successful people get to be successful through action. When you’re working hard, you will likely make a lot of mistakes, but you will also achieve much more.

You can’t be afraid to take chances and do your best. Sometimes even your best efforts may fall short, but remember that you’re gaining experience. With that added experience and the knowledge you gain along the way, the next time may be the time you achieve what you were trying for.

You will gain nothing by sitting around waiting for happiness to come your way. You must get out and work at it, whether you’re trying for a relationship or a job promotion, or something else you hope to accomplish in your life.

It’s always preferable to make a strong effort and make an error, than it is to do nothing. Any strides you make, no matter how slow your progress, will take you further than never trying to take a step. So get out and do your best, even if you know you may mess up.
