I had been eyeing the Singapore New Futura building near my apartment for quite some time. I had been gunning for a management position at work, and I told myself that I would move into one of the condos there if I got the position. I’m quite competitive, and setting my sights on earning a big reward that comes along with a goal that I want to reach really helps me to put my best effort toward a goal. I’ve been using this type of strategy for many years, and it really does work.
After I graduated from high school, my dad said that I was floundering around in life far too much. I really didn’t understand what he was talking about at first, but then I noticed that all of my friends were surpassing me when it comes to getting somewhere in life. I had planning on taking some time off after high school to travel for a couple of years, and I did it. However, it didn’t take me long to see that my friends were sailing through college while I traveled, yet I had no idea what school I even wanted to go to or what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I ended up cutting that trip short to focus on trying to get my life on a better track.
Many people would say that they wish they would have taken time to travel as a young person. What I have learned is that, now that I have pushed myself career-wise, I’m able to take time off to go to even nicer places than I could as a young person who was mostly broke. At the end of each year, I now promise to treat myself to a wonderful vacation if I beat my sales quota from the year before. If I don’t exceed expectations, then I do not reward myself with travel. These are just a couple of examples of what I do to make sure that I reach success in life.
