Six inspiring quotes to help you stick to your study goalsPosted on 24/01/2018 by Jess O'Connor
It’s January, and you know what that means – New Year’s Resolutions.
If your goal for 2018 is to study from home towards a tourism qualification, then this blog post is for you.
Here are six inspiring quotes to help you stick to your study goals in 2018.
1. “Motivation gets you going and habit gets you there.” – Zig Ziglar
You know that wonderful feeling when you’re excited to achieve your goals and you have tonnes of energy? That’s motivation – and it’s awesome – but some days motivation might disappear. That’s why you need to create productive habits, such as sitting down to study every day at 9am (no excuses). Creating a habit will keep you on track even when your motivation goes walkabout for a few days.
2. “People with goals succeed because they know where they’re going.” – Earl Nightingale
When you set a goal, you clearly tell the universe what it is you want – and when. Goal setting is an opportunity to be bold and articulate your dreams. So don’t hold back from telling yourself what you truly want. Write your goal down, say it out loud, and keep it at the forefront of your mind every day.
3. “A dream becomes a goal when action is taken towards its achievement.” – Bo Bennett
Do you dream of working in the tourism industry? Then all you need to do to turn this dream into a goal is take action – for example, by enrolling in one of our airline, travel & tourism qualifications. You could be qualified and industry-ready in as little as 20 weeks.
4. “Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.” – Robert Louis
You might have to read this quote a few times to get the idea – but it’s worth the head scratching. Essentially, what Robert Louis is trying to say is ‘don’t expect success overnight’. A small amount of work each day (“the seeds you plant”) will eventually help you achieve your long-term goal.
5. “Guard your time fiercely. Be generous with it, but be intentional about it.” – David Duchemin
Studying requires a large time investment – especially when you study from home. You will need to develop ways to “guard your time fiercely” so that you’re not wasting precious hours on unimportant tasks that will not help you achieve your goal (such as binge watching Riverdale).
6. “One day, or day one. You decide.” – Unknown
Sometimes it really is this simple: is your goal far away in the future, a ‘one day dream’, or could this be day one of the rest of your life? Make today day one by taking action towards achieving your goal (see quote number three for inspiration). You’ve got this!
