As this semester draws to a close, I want to reflect on all the growth and experiences I’ve had since the beginning of 2019. In the past 16 weeks, I’ve made some huge strides. I’ve started a personal brand which includes my website, this blog, my podcast, and a complete social media presence. I’ve also got involved with 3 different student organizations and helped co-found Mount Pleasant Young Professionals. I’ve maintained my involvement in the community through the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber Alliance. I also helped co-found a mastermind group. That group is an exclusive opportunity for me and 4 other success-minded individuals to close in on our success. The people I’ve met are truly incredible! I’m in great shape, both physically and mentally. I’ve read over 20 books so far and I’ve listened to days worth of podcasts! I’ve tried some new things, some of which I’ve loved and some I did not. I’m happy, yet dissatisfied. I still crave more and to be more! There is still a lot of 2019 left, so I can’t afford to take my foot off the gas. I can’t wait to see what the rest of 2019 brings! I’m extremely grateful for all the things in my life and all the things that will come into my life.
I’m currently in Omaha, NE attending the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholders Meeting and EvolveCon 2.0 with my one of my friends, JD Klopfenstein. After this, I have finals week, one week off(haha funny, I’ll stay busy!), and then I start my internship at Cambridge Investment Research as a Fiduciary Services Intern in Fairfield, IA. I know the next 3 months are going to be busy, yet productive. My website, this blog, my podcast, and social media will all continue to grow. Overall, I will keep growing and will become an even better overall individual. I can’t wait to keep sharing my story and inspiring others!
We tend to overestimate what we can do in a year or less, but we severely underestimate what we can do over a long period of time. I’ve set some ridiculous goals for 2019. I fully intend on accomplishing them all, but if I fall short, I’ll still be way closer than I was in the beginning. One of my favorite quotes is by Vince Lombardi. It says, “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.” That quote really defines why I’m so obsessed with perfection and how it will relate to my success.
Challenge: How are you doing on your goals? What do you need to do to accomplish them?
