Achieving Success

I cannot believe that summer is over and school has already begun.

I taught school for many years, so I look at every September as an opportunity for new beginnings and fresh starts. In addition, September and October are two of the busiest hiring months of the year. Are you ready for a new beginning? Are you out of work or not happy in the job you are in? If you are thinking about conducting an active job search, now is a terrific time to jump-start it into high gear in order to get optimum results. My goal is to have you be successful in that endeavor.

When I think about success, I think about what I want to accomplish – things that are important to me. I do not have to look at what others consider success, because their vision of success is different than mine. I try not to compare myself to them, because when I do that, it only affects my success, and I cannot control the success of someone else.

I believe that success is achievable for each of us – however you must believe in yourself and in the fact that you can accomplish what you want to do. When considering success, let’s keep in mind the dictionary definition, just to help keep it in perspective: success is “An event that accomplishes its intended purpose.” That’s it; it does not have to be about conspicuous wealth, nor does it have to be highly public.

Success is not always a straight line – sometimes you can take one step forward and two steps backward. The important thing is that you have the persistence to continually go forward, despite any setbacks. Think of something you would like to accomplish in the next 30 – 60 days (maybe it’s getting a new job), and go after it. Challenge yourself and let me know how well you succeed!

Your Success is My Goal – be the architect of your life, not the victim of your career!
