I hope you enjoyed watching these two fantastic champions battle it out last weekend at Rod Laver Arena to make their dreams come true. I know I did! I couldn’t believe that Kerber was actually able to beat Serena Williams. So, it got me thinking…how did she achieve her goal?
To achieve what you want in your life involves having clear and measurable goals. This means that if there’s something you really want to achieve in your life, you need to start by finding some time to have a good chat with yourself.
Perhaps choose a place where you feel most inspired or relaxed, a favourite cafe, beach, etc. Then, ask yourself the question, “What do I want to achieve?”
For example, if achieving success for you means getting a better job you may then want to clearly define the type of job you want to get, how much you want to earn and when you want to have achieved this by. Once you’ve written all of these details down you’ll then be ready to start working on how you can actually go about doing it.
You’ll find that there are often people around you who are willing to help you, but first, you need to know exactly what you want help with and next, how to ask for it.
Only once you’re crystal-clear about what you actually want to achieve will you be able to achieve success.
Having listened to Kerber’s interviews following her Grand Slam win, she suggested that achieving success involved:
- Working hard to improve – hard work pays off!
- Improving your mentality, it’ll help you to be more relaxed!
- Believing in yourself!
So, before you get too busy again with this thing called “life”, make sure to schedule some time in your diary to have a chat with yourself.
What will success look like for you?
