Set Yourself Goals to Achieve

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.

Increase Opportunities with Capabilities

Never stop trying to expand your mind and your abilities

mind and your abilities

Everyone has their own skill set. People have different capabilities, but your motivation will determine how far you go. By focusing on your best capabilities, and expanding on them, you will find opportunities that you may not have even considered.

When you’re doing something you’re good at and enjoy, the sky is the limit. You will also find that life feels easier when you’re doing well. So never stop working to improve yourself, at things you’re already good at, as well as the areas where you could stand to do a lot better.

The more you’re able to do, the more opportunities will be open to you. No matter what stage of life you’re in, and no matter how many great things you can already do and have done, you can be even better.

Practice, hard work, and dedication will get you far in life. You need only find what motivates you and build on your successes. As you go along, you can continue to hone your skills, and learn new ones. As your capabilities grow, so will your chances to do great things.

Aim (Realistically) High To Reach The Top

successes on your way up

Opportunities will rarely just fall into your lap. You usually have to set goals and work toward them in order to achieve success. Practicing the things you’re best at and keeping your eyes on the prize will help you make it in life.

You have to aim high and dream big in order to enjoy great success, but don’t expect everything to happen in leaps and bounds. Although you may get some lucky breaks, moving up in life may sometimes require struggling through setbacks, and working back up the ladder slowly.

Many find it best to set goals that aren’t quite so lofty. If you strive for the top from the start, you may be setting yourself up for failure and disappointment. You must set goals that are attainable along the way, and eventually, you may be ready for that top spot.

By setting high goals, but goals that you can realistically meet in the near future, you will be encouraged by your smaller successes along the way. Patience is a virtue. You should try not to get ahead of yourself when it comes to working toward your ultimate objectives. Build up to that final goal, one step at a time.

Move Forward: An Admonition From a Keynote Speaker

Finding a Job

A keynote speaker reminds us that finding a job that matches our skills and capabilities is especially hard these days.

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

A renowned keynote speaker, Andy Core, would like you to become successful in the field you have chosen. However, with such a high unemployment rate, how will you surpass the industry’s challenges?

We all know how the recession in the USA had affected many Americans, and even immigrants who have found a living in this enormous country. Though the government said that the country has finally overcome economic problems, many people are still having a hard time finding the right job in the career they have chosen. Now, if you are among those who cannot find a job, then you have to make decisions that will be beneficial to you.

Change Careers

Figure out if you need to change the career path you have been walking on. There may be opportunities in other fields apart from the one you have chosen. Finding a job in a different path may actually provide you the success you have been looking forward to.

If you are not interested in welcoming a change of career, then you have no other option but to embrace the very low rate you may hit from the industry you have chosen. Though the rate is a bit low compared to the levels that are acceptable, it is still better than not having anything at all.

Move to Greener Pastures

Our keynote speaker suggests that you could also move away. Seek for other opportunities that may be found in other states. This may be a huge leap and a risk some will not be able to take, as of course, it doesn’t guarantee you anything.

To sum it all up, finding work is surely a hard task these days, but when you know how to make adjustments, you may be able to find growth and assurance in the long run.
