Big and little goals inspire and make life worthwhile.
There is a significant difference between desire and goal. If you want to achieve something, you will need to hard work and put a lot of effort to reach the desired goal. Finding the force to believe in your strength, dedicating time on the fulfillment of your dreams, and not give up is hard. You are the one who can turn yourself into a high achiever.
Have you ever thought that you are not using your potential to the full? You have everything you need to turn your dreams into reality, but for one reason or another, you do nothing. You continue leaving standard life with your habitual attitude to life. What distinguish you from a high achiever?
Who is a high achiever? According to Merriam Webster dictionary, it is a hardworking and successful person. In fact, high achiever is more than a hardworking person. Usually, high achievers consciously or unconsciously follow specific rules and habits that help them become who they are.
We are not talking about laziness or apathy. It’s about the feeling that you have hit a wall in your current position and you know that you can do more. Unfortunately, it’s a familiar feeling for everyone. Don’t be upset. We have good news! You can work with it.
Becoming a high achiever is your personal challenge. It is a difficult task, but you can do it. We want to share several rules that may help you maximize your potential and move higher!
Promise Yourself to Keep Evolving
In other words, become an eternal student. Our studying doesn't end after graduation. Learn everything that can potentially help you improve results. Take a rule to study every day for 15-30 minutes. It may be an online course, podcast, lecture on Ted, a book, or anything that will help you become a better person and professional. Attend various meetings, training courses, and seminars where you can communicate with professionals, grow your network, and get inspiration. Try to apply this new knowledge as soon as possible.
Identify Personal Mission
Make sure that your mission corresponds to your strengths and talents. Your mission will be a driving force that will help you significantly move forward. It will add meaning to every goal you set and every task you complete. And it helps to keep the focus and motivate you on each stage of your path to the big goal.
Engage Competitive Spirit
You can challenge yourself every day to get closer to your goal. If we don’t do this, we stop growing. And that means not changing. The spirit of competition at work and your daily life bring you a great bunch of enthusiasm and drive. Also, competition helps you become more confident in own abilities, realize your strong and weak sides, and accumulate your willpower to win. Enjoy your achievements and inspire other people with your success.
Look at Criticism and Failures Philosophically
High achievers may frequently face failures. They can be subjected to criticism, receive refusals, or make serious mistakes. Don’t give up after failure and criticism, as it one of the reasons why people don’t achieve their goals. Think of it as an invaluable experience and aim to become better. Remember, everything is possible while you are alive. Read the biographies of successful people, and you will get a bunch of motivation to keep going to your dreams. For example, read The Pursuit of Happiness by Christopher Gardner.
Be Strict to Yourself
To keep your high standards, you need to keep yourself in good shape. To become a better version of yourself, become the strictest judge. You remember the time, when you was a teenager and asked someone for homework help? Those days were gone... Persistence in your work, self-discipline, and diving deep with grit and pain to your passion is one of the keys to success.
Make an Action Plan
Set the goal and think about the skills and abilities you have and what you need to improve to reach the goal. Learn to dream big and imagine yourself as a part of something bigger. Think of how your plans and desires may influence you and people around. You may be surprised how many people rely on you.
Act like a military strategist. To win the battle, you need to take a list of conscious and considered little steps. While a little step may seem trivial, it may have a significant influence on the perspective. If something changes in your life, you will need to correct the plan accordingly.
Also, you will need to learn to set priorities. Get ready to step over your emotions and feeling to make the right step. As in everything, balance is the right choice. Be realistic of your abilities and goals.
Don’t expect that success comes by itself. If you accept one of the rules from above, you will definitely feel the change in your life. The path of high achiever is thorny, so do all you can and enjoy the process. Some people that achieve the goal of their life feel disappointed. It happens when you concentrate on the result only. Let the path to your dreams be interesting and exciting.
Surround you with people that will support you in all undertakings and with any problem you have. People that can listen to you and say something: “Yes, it’s a hard thing, but I believe you can handle it. Get yourself together!”
Even if sometimes it seems that you are not good enough or you just not the person to become a high achiever, this is not so. If you are searching for possibilities, you will find it. Just take it, develop yourself, and don’t stop at any case.
We believe that you can do more!
