Never give up! It’s a rather simple philosophy to consider and follow. If you have a goal you want to reach you simply must keep trying to reach it. Now, obviously, this does not mean you will reach it because it’s your goal only that you must focus on getting to it.
Sometimes goals are really easy and sometimes goals are near impossible although no matter the case it is still a goal and something to focus on.
Do you want to help people? Make the effort to learn what they need help with and share that knowledge to provide the assistance they need.
Do you want to write something? A book? A play? A piece of software? Put pen to paper, as they say, and start writing.
One of the biggest challenges of achieving one’s goals is not so much in setting ones that can be met (it’s often time better to set goals just beyond that point), it’s the whole point of getting started! If you never take that first step you will never finish the trip.
The greatest journey’s in life all begin with its first step … and sometimes that first step might not be the right direction although that’s OK, there’s nothing to say you cannot change directions mid-course. Just focus on the goals you have set and keep looking forward to achieving them. Follow the paths that will lead you to there and don’t worry if those paths are not the one everyone else has taken.
We are all individuals and each in their own right has to follow the best path for themselves.
… and just like customers are all individuals, sometimes you may have to lead them down a different path for them to see the same answers others have found already.
