Set Yourself Goals to Achieve

Set high standards for your goals

Set high standards for your goals

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.

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.

Don’t Stop Learning When You Finish Your Education

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.

One of my favorite movies is Goodwill Hunting, and one of my favorite scenes, not surprisingly, occurs when Matt Damon is intellectually sparing with a student from an Ivy League school. One of the best quotes from this scene is, ““You blew 150k on an education you could have gotten in$1.50 in late fees from the library.” 

Although most people my not have the capacity to retain as much knowledge from a book as Matt Damon’s character, Will, but there is something to be said for reading for the sake of learning. Throughout school, we read what we were told to read. We didn’t often get to choose books based on our personal interests or take classes that taught skills we wanted to learn. We took what classes were available and did what the teacher said. For those of us who did pursue college, we took classes that were supposed to align with what we wanted to be when we “grew up,” but, for the most part, we still read what our professors assigned.

So for many of us, this could be our first opportunity to read and learn what we choose. We can educate ourselves and be knowledgeable in basically any arena.

Regardless of how successful you were at school, you have the power to educate yourself. From reading books to watching youtube videos and documentaries to attending conferences and organizations, we all have the opportunity to pursue our passions at little or no cost.

Interested in being a writer? Go to a conference, practice your skill and read more books. Interested in organic gardening? Read a book, join a club, buy some dirt and get started. Want to learn the guitar? Get on youtube, learn some chords, and practice. You have your job and your responsibilities, but you also have your brain, and you only have one chance to use it. It’s a waste to set your learning speed on cruise control after you get a degree.

It’s worth saying though, that anything you begin to learn from unskilled perspective, won’t be easy. We all have to overcome the learning curve at first, but don’t be discouraged. Stick with your interests and you’ll eventually get better.

Every phase of our lives consist of acquiring new knowledge and adapting the knowledge to our benefit. You are never too old to learn. You might think you have seen and done it all but there are always new and relevant things to discover. You just have to have an open and enquiring mind. Listening to a motivational speaker can give you the motivation and enthusiasm to continue your education.

To achieve success, we must pursue our passions. Don’t let complacency hold you back.

Effective Workplace Wellness Programs Don’t Need to be Costly

Information and basic, but healthy, necessities can save your company thousands while maintaining productivity.

It is commonly believed that the more you fund something, the better its quality; this is not true about workplace wellness programs. There are so many kinds of workplace wellness programs, a lot of them achieving similar goals with different methods. It is unnecessary for companies to worry about a budget as incorporating the most basic kinds are inexpensive and are effective. These include:

Educating Your Employees

You can educate them yourself if you don’t want to hassle with a presentation. Educate them in the values of living healthy and how it affects the workplace. Remind them to stay home if they’re sick as they could endanger their peers. Also, remind them to get vaccination when needed. A few minutes spent talking to your employees about risks that can be avoided could save a good amount of money and effort.

Providing for Their Basic Needs

People have many needs, but most of them don’t require a lot of money. Making fresh fruit readily available as a snack and keeping fresh water nearby their work areas is already good for their health. If they need to get away from their tasks for a while to cool off, allow them to do stress relieving activities like socializing and taking a walk. You can even offer counseling if they have problems.

These two actions by themselves can create a huge difference from a workplace without any workplace wellness programs; the basics are the best, after all. Don’t waste money on anything flashy and fancy, even the most simple of workplace wellness programs can protect the wellness of the employees and the health of the company.
