When you make a goal, the very next thought in your mind will probably be something, like,”Now, how do I get there?” Get a pen and paper, and I will give you an idea.
Ask yourself, “How do I get there?” Each time you answer the question, your answer should be a little more specific then the last answer. And the answer should require you to do some research.
When you are doing your research, it is entirely possible that you will make a new goal, or find something else that you want to go after. Let’s say, my goal is to become an engineer by the year 2022.
How do I get there? The first thing I will look at what the requirements are to become an engineer. I will look to see if there are Federal or State requirements to be an engineer. Do I need a license or permit? Do I need an educational degree? What kind of engineer do I want to be? Does being an engineer fit my personality?
The answers in the paragraph above will guide you to doing more research. By the time you ask your question the fifth time, you will be well on the way towards your goal. Sorry if you thought I was going to give you answers. But these are questions only YOU will be able to answer. It is YOUR dream. You have to go down that path.
Your paper should be pretty full by now. You might want to get a notepad. The research you do will more than likely lead you deeper into the profession that you seek.
Keep asking yourself, “How do I get there?” And write it down.
Pick a dream…and GO FOR IT!
I wish you all the best of luck.
