How to be ambitious with your life

2018 is just around the corner! Another year has whizzed past and what have you achieved? If you feel like your standing still rather than moving forward then it’s imperative that you grasp 2018. Make it the year you fulfill your potential and push yourself beyond the edges. Live an ambitious life.

I don’t want to sound corny but we only get one chance to live the life we want to live. And let’s face it the only person stopping you from doing that is you.

So what do you want, not just from your career, but from life? The time for playing small and hiding away has gone – let’s think BIG – the world needs more of what you can bring – it needs your uniqueness and your special talents, whatever they may be.

Now more than ever there is the opportunity to dream and contemplate how you can shape your life and be ambitious for what you want from it.

Make an Ambitious Intention

Say it out loud! Print it out and stick to your mirror! Write it on a post it note and use it as a book mark! Capture it in some way but start by making it clear to yourself and the world what your ambition is:

This time next year I will be …. 

By stating your intention you are sending  a clear message about what you want, and whether your believe in the law of attraction or not, what you focus on usually manifests itself.

Make an Ambitious Plan

Now you are clear about what you want and where you intend to be, you can start to plan it out. It doesn’t have to be full of SMART goals or KPIs – they can suck the energy out of where you’re heading but it does need to have momentum and direction. Get your coloured pens out and start mind mapping or capturing ideas.

Make Ambitious Opportunities

There is no such thing as luck – successful people are open to possibility and create the opportunities that take them forward. Tell people about your dream – about where you’re heading. Seek out new experiences and be open to different pathways, and see what happens.

Don’t settle for less than you dream of for your life. Ask yourself ‘If I knew I couldn’t fail, what would I do?’ and then do it.
