When we think about the changes we want to make in our life, we usually have a picture in our minds of what that change looks like. We envision a bigger house, more holidays, a faster car and maybe a job with more status. We might even see ourselves looking a little different to how we look now - more toned, slimmer, better dressed.
All of these changes are focusing on what we want to HAVE in our lives, and they're a great place to start when planning the goals we want to achieve. Unless we have a vision of how things will look when we've reached the lofty heights of our personal success, we've little chance of ever getting there.
But before we can HAVE all these great things, we have to be prepared to make some changes.
As Albert Einstein said, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results". In other words if we keep doing what we've always done, we'll continue to have what we've always had, and our life just goes round in circles getting no-where. For big leaps forward in what we have, we need to make massive changes not only to the way we do things, but also (more importantly) to the way we think.
It's not rocket science to know that there's going to be a tad of work to DO to earn the things we want to HAVE. It's a basic law of life that we have to give in order to receive. But doing the work alone won't necessarily bring the goodies we want. We become successful by thinking and behaving like a successful person - developing the identity, beliefs and values of an achiever before we've actually got there.
So the student whose goal is to change career and double their income in the next three years has to become a conscientious learner who prioritises a certain amount of time to studying each week. If the pub beckons, but the work hasn't been done, the pub must wait. The achiever is happy there'll be plenty more pub time down the road (and more money to spend at the pub!) if they put the effort in first. A healthy attitude to studying makes the learning process easier, and brings results much faster.
Success doesn't happen on its own. Developing the mindset of an achiever is a powerful weapon against the knocks, criticisms and doubts that will inevitably come our way. We can associate with winning attitudes by reading biographies, watching films and interviews of others who've overcome adversities on their road to victory. A familiar thread runs through each of their stories - that what they have now is largely the result of the work they did and who they became before the gravy train started to roll.
By concentrating on becoming the person we need to BE, the work we have to DO will be more enjoyable and bring us the things we want to HAVE so much sooner.
Really informative & very positive... They cut out all the nonsense and just gave it to me in plain terms: This is what you're going to get - and this is where you'll end up. That's all I wanted really.
David : UK
My advisor told me absolutely everything I needed to know. If I needed to know the specifics of a certain subject, he told me everything about that. He was friendly and really helpful.
Leroy : UK
They seemed very knowledgeable about the course... I made a decision quite easily, based on what they said.
Donna : UK
The advice was good. It wasn't overly complicated, so I wasn't bogged down with words that were unnecessary - and I understood where they were coming from. It was very professional.
Hayley : UK
I'd definitely recommend them. I think the price was very competitive - some of the courses out there were three times the price of what they were offering. To me, it's ideal.
Clive : UK
I feel I got good value for money. If you're a practically minded person, the course is perfect. I've also passed your details onto some other people I work with, because they're also interested in that field.
Lee : UK
I'd give the course 10/10. I've already convinced someone else to do one. I just think it's awesome to be quite honest - as long as you're prepared to put the effort in.
Leroy : UK
The advisor was absolutely brilliant. I felt like he was honest... I just can't fault it really.
Shelley : UK
The advisor was very friendly. He came across as very competent with his knowledge of the industry. He gave me a lot of confidence from that point of view.
Tim : UK
The advisor was fantastic I have to say - the way he described everything and helped me to find the right course. Everything he said made sense.
