4 Daring Ways to Brazenly Reach Your Goals

nbspOC California Community College

No matter your goal, you most likely have a plan to achieve it. However, there will be road bumps along the way. Everyone doesn’t reach their destination in a linear line, sometimes there are curves, bumps, and canyons that will stand between you and what you want. Here’s how to overcome them.

Your Truth – The vast majority of the information you take in every day is coming through a lens that someone has carefully crafted. PR teams and marketing specialists abound in the 21st Century. This doesn’t mean you have to abide by their rules. You know who you are and what you want, that is your truth. You have to believe it, live it, and speak it. No apologies, no worries, no slanting it so that others can feel comfortable and happy with what you have to say. Sometimes the hardest truths are the most important.

Move Past ‘No’ – You are going to be told ‘no’ in your lifetime, and it’s not the end all be all in the world of going after your goals. ‘No’ is simply a stop sign that you must pause at. Reevaluate why you were told that, what you can do differently or better next time, and then move on to the next mile marker.

Evolve – The only constant is change. Everything is constantly evolving around us, and that means you can too. Many people look negatively upon people who allow themselves to grow and progress, but if you stayed the same, then you would never create or reach your goals. You are entitled to change and so are your goals. Allow yourself to modify your goals as needed. Otherwise, there’s no point in attacking them.

Like Yourself – If you don’t love (like) yourself, then no one else will. The internet is filled with self-deprecating memes that tell us to be hard on ourselves and that being self-assured is narcissistic. That’s not true. You can be self-assured, have humility, and still believe in yourself and push yourself and your goals. Do not let the negativity of others bring down your goals or change the way you view yourself.

Brazenly working towards and reaching your goals is a charming way of saying “blatantly striving for more.” And you should. Defining, working towards, and meeting your goals be it for a better you or a business idea, will always be worth the hard work and sacrifice and is something you should never apologize for.
