I have always been logistical when it came to my life and future. My parents equipped me with all the tools I needed to survive, but setting goals and wanting to succeed was up to my discretion. I hope to encourage you to get know yourself and know what it is you want to achieve while in and after college.
When setting goals you must first know what it is you want to do. For me, I started setting goals freshman year of high school. I began to plan post-graduation goals. My goals were to graduate high school and attend college. I didn’t know specifically what college I wanted to attend, but I knew that college was a top priority.
Once you know what is you want to do, then you need to come up with the logistics of how you’re going to achieve that goal. In high school, my plan was to maintain above a 2.5 GPA, build relationships with teachers and community leader, and also prepare for the SAT and ACT, then actually apply for college my senior year.
Lastly, after setting goals and coming up with plan it is then time for the execution. You must execute the plan, have the determination and put forth the effort of going through with the plan; so that you can achieve your goal. For me, personally, it was not easy executing my plan. There were bumps in the road, but I had to persevere and tell myself that I could reach my goal.
Once you get into college it is very important to set goals. Otherwise, all four years will pass you by and you will be stuck trying to figure out what to do. Realize that you hold the responsibility of your life, and that no one else can set goals and achieve them for you. You must have the burning desire to be successful and reach your goals. As I stated earlier, my parents taught me everything I needed to know, but I had to put forth the action to make it happen. For example, in the process of my completing applications and registering for the SAT it was my responsibility to do those things myself because it was my goal to attend college.
If you do not know for sure what it is you want to do in life-or you have a hard time trying to achieve your goals-then you should follow your instinct. Your instinct will guide you in the direction that you need to be. Although I’m in college and I have set goals, there are still times when I do not know what to do or do not know the next step to achieve my goal. When I get to that point, I stop what I’m doing and I let my instinct guide me. Instinct is that feeling in your gut that will silently guide you in the way you need to go in order to achieve.
I personally believe that everyone on earth is destined for greatness and holds the capability to win in life no matter what. However you must have that drive and burning desire. If you set your mind right, your life will surely follow.
