Precision. Passion. Persistence.
Moving your career in the direction you want it to go takes planning, focus and a detailed road map that guides you every step of the way.
Goals that may have seemed far away when you first made them eventually move closer and become attainable.
Do you want more clients? Would you like to have your work published? How about winning a NAHA award? Set precise goals and establish a realistic timeline to achieve them. By doing so, events are set into motion that, otherwise, may not have happened.
Goals that initially seem more like a fantasy than a reality eventually become attainable—not because your goals shrink, but because you grow and expand to match them.
As you reach your goals, build upon them and set new goals that are even more ambitious.
By achieving one success at a time, your career will become an incredible journey.
Take the time to contemplate your true passions.
What would you really love to be doing? Where do you really want to be? Who would you like to work with?
Set small goals that you can easily obtain. Use them as stepping stones that eventually help you to reach bigger goals—the ones that give you butterflies in your stomach when you think about them.
True success will eventually come to those who are willing to work hard enough and long enough.
Thomas Jefferson once said, “I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.” True success will eventually come to those who work hard and do whatever it takes— including a lifelong commitment to education—to ensure a successful outcome.
You must be persistent, set your “GPS” to your final destination and be willing to take every turn required to arrive at your destination.
Don’t worry if you have to occasionally recalculate your route. With persistence, you’ll have a fantastic career that’s filled with exciting adventures and accomplishments.
