The Hardest Step Is The First One….
Happy New Year! 2013 is finally here and we are all brimming with the anticipation of what it could bring, holding a fistful of resolutions that we are determined to fulfill — some might even be career-related. The stumbling block to achieving many a resolution is becoming overwhelmed with the size of the task or the degree of change needed to achieve the goal. It’s important to realize, however, that change, no matter how great takes time and many small steps to get there. In order to make this change, one of the most important things you must bring to any resolution, New Year’s or otherwise, is actual resolve to accomplish the goal. This all starts with being in the right frame of mind (read how yoga can improve your job search). Your mind is a powerful thing and your belief in yourself and determination are major factors influencing your success. The most well mapped out goal can easily fail for lack of willpower to see it through, but ultimately, you need both for success. Don’t believe me, watch the remarkable transformation of Arthur Boorman. You can also see that one needs a support team. Arthur Boorman had his cheerleaders, as well as his own internal motivation. Do you have the support you need, or the knowledge to make sure you are taking the right steps in the right direction?
