To be successful, you must acquire a vision. A vision is a clearly articulated picture of the future you intend to create for yourself. It’s a dream. If the dream does not have direction, it will always remain a dream; will never become a reality. The vision creates passion within you, a love for what you do and the benefit it will bring to others as well as yourself.
Your vision must be very specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and tangible. When you believe you have chosen an appropriate career goal, look at it very specifically and measure your progress. How will you know you are progressing in the right direction? This is where the development of short-term objectives comes in. You will know you are on the right path as you accomplish each short-term objective. Appraise strictly; is the goal achievable considering your current life situation and circumstances? Is what you want to do is really realistic? What will you specifically have at the end? What will you be exactly? You must be very specific. You must establish a strict tangible time frame with deadlines. The time frame creates sense of urgency; which will limit the possibility of procrastination.
Get this vision first and your path will become clear. Still, you will need a mentor, counselor, or coach who will be able to help you develop a road map embedded with short-term objectives leading to your overall career goals and objectives. The achievement of short-term objectives will indicate you are moving in the correct direction, and will also give you energy and excitement to carry on towards your overall career goal. It demands serious research, but you most likely have some basic ideas already. Follow them through, look at the nature of your field, the everyday routine, the required education, the salary, the occupational demand in the related field.
When a career sparks an interest, try to shadow an individual who is actually doing what you think you might like to do. You can pick up valuable information by shadowing individual who is actually doing what you think you might like to do. Acquire the will to change circumstances. Acquire the vision or dream. Develop a road-map embedded with short-term objectives leading to your overall goal and objective. Just do it and do not let go until it becomes a reality.
