Career Ambitions: Is It Time To Dream BIG?


ABSTRACT

After graduating, people are full of hopes and dreams of making it big in their respective fields and set higher aims for their future.

Human beings have always been ambitious from the day they set foot on Planet Earth. He was never satisfied with what he has already achieved. He wants more. This trait of human nature put him on the moon. Making it big in this competitive world is not a walk in the park. It takes guts, sweat and brains to cut out a place for you. To be ambitious is to dream big. But how are you going to go about it. There are questions to be answered. Like:
What is it that you want to achieve? What is your ambition?
How do you define success? What does it mean to you?
How far are you ready to go to fulfill your ambitions?
Once you answer these questions and sort them out, you are already on the way to fulfill your dream. Here we are going to discuss some characteristics of successful people which can help you achieve your goals and sees you on your way to success.

DREAMS vs. GOALS

We, being ambitious entities, want to do many things at the same time; we want to do more with our time. But it is like traveling in all directions to reach one destination. Result is, you don’t reach anywhere and ends up being lost. Setting realistic goal is the first step towards making your dreams come true.
 What are dreams? Dreams are intangible fragments of our imagination. They are not going to get us anywhere unless we turn our dreams into our goals. They are the realistic version of our dreams. Having a great idea or dream is not a problem. Having too many at the same time is. They will eventually cancel each other out and you will be left empty handed. Having one great idea, turning it into a goal and working hard towards its realization has been the mantra of all the successful people we have idolizing all our lives.

GET TO WORK

Once you have set your goal and made up your mind about what you want and how you want it, then it is time to put your vision into action. No dream came true ever without putting your 100 percent time and effort. Your effort should be single-minded and monomaniacal.
The magnitude of your ambition determines the position it holds on your priority list. Small ambitions mostly get overshadowed. Aim for higher ambition so that it sticks. Once you have a bigger ambition on your list, rest of the items on that goes into the pending basket and your ambition becomes the focal point of your efforts.  Be firm and tenacious in the execution of your endeavors towards achieving your dreams. Never let negative conditions or feedback hold you back from striving to excel. There will be people trying to undermine your efforts by telling you that you can’t achieve it because it’s impossible or just too difficult. Don’t let them or any kind of adversity come in your way. Adversity makes you stronger. Storms only make eagle soar above the clouds. Make adversity your friend, not enemy.

LEARN FROM THE PAST

Learn from your past and never make the same mistakes twice. Debug your efforts and start anew whenever there is a hiccup in your mission. More often than not, we tend to brood over what happened in the past that kept us from achieving our dreams. It just makes us weak and slows us down in our present efforts. Use those mistakes as a learning experience only and move on.
Learn from the lives of past success stories of achievers. Follow a role model. Assess their life style and attributes. Make notes of what they did right in their careers and lives that made them standout in the crowd.

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF

This one-liner has been a tag line of hundreds of movies and became quite a cliché statement but this doesn’t make it irrelevant at all. Believing in one’s self or doubting one’s abilities is the turning point of achieving success or ending up as a failure. So whatever career targets you have set for yourself, however high they are, believing in yourself will gradually but eventually get you there. Sometimes, it’swe rather than other people standing in our way of achieving greatness.

These are a few ways of making it in the real world and becoming a success story. Dream big and set your priorities to back that dream to become reality.
