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.
