Yusra Mardini: #EmpowerYourself

Yusra Mardini

Reflecting on your achievements is often something that gets put to one side in busy lifestyles but is incredibly important in maintaining a high level of motivation. Yusra Mardini, UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador and 2016 Olympian, shares the three motivational tips on why its important to reflect on how far you’ve come:

1. Determination

It’s inevitable that you’re going to come up against a few hurdles, despite your best attempts to avoid them! Don’t let them deter you, and think of the solution (not the problem) to overcome them. Determination plays a big part in providing focus to accomplishing your goals so don’t give up if you don’t achieve them first time round.

2. Positivity

When you’re faced with challenges, it’s often more difficult to remain positive and stay focussed on achieving your goals when the negative is crying out for your attention! Go back to the original concept, and remind yourself what the final outcome will be to help re-focus.

3. Celebration

Make a point of celebrating the victories, no matter how small. This is incredibly important to ensure you keep progressing. Once you’ve conquered one milestone, focus on the next one and reflect on what you’ve achieved to help stay motivated.

Jack Parsons: ‘How to reach your goals’

Teamwork

In the depths winter, it is easy to lose sight of the goals you have set for yourself, either in your personal or professional life. Succeeding in the plan you’ve set out for yourself can often feel like an uphill battle. Jack Parsons, an inspiring young entrepreneur and media influencer, is no stranger to this. Growing up in a tough area and struggling with dyslexia at school, the odds were stacked against him. Despite everything, Jack was determined to be successful, and has shared a few top tips on how reaching your goals:

Be specific when you’re goal setting

If you want to succeed, you have to set yourself a specific goal that’s easy to keep in mind and will motivate you working towards it. It can be as simple or as complicated as you like, as long as it makes sense to you and is achievable for you.

Set a timeline

This is vital when you’re trying to set your goals, and more importantly – achieve them! It allows you to keep track of what should be achieved and by when. It’s not only a source of motivation, but also a practical way to ensure everything is getting done.

Be realistic

As much as dreaming big is sometimes beneficial for motivational purposes, it is still essential to stay realistic in your ambitions. Think about what you want to do, and how to execute it in a way that is realistically possible. After you’ve laid the groundwork, you can start increasing your targets and forming more ambitious aspirations.

Stay focused

A key factor in succeeding is to simply not lose focus. Keep on track as much as possible, and don’t let outside factors take away your concentration from the target at hand. You should channel your energy and attention into your goal. It is very easy to lose track and attempt to do too many things at once.

Stay committed

Reaching your goals can sometimes be a very long and difficult process, and giving up may begin to feel like an option. Staying as driven and committed as possible is essential to working through any difficulties you might face. Believe in your ideas and abilities, to make it become a reality.

In the digital age of 2018, an increasing number of people are taking to entrepreneurship instead of seeking roles in existing companies. Entrepreneurs need leadership qualities and plenty of ambition to help them succeed and stay motivated when running their own business. Jack Parsons, an inspiring young entrepreneur, and media influencer who runs an organisation dedicated to helping fellow budding business owners shares his secrets to his success at such a young age.

Fresh perspective

Any new business needs a fresh idea; something different that hasn’t been done before. The most creative, fearless, sometimes even crazy ideas are the ones that succeed. Don’t be afraid to dream big and try to look at the world from a fresh perspective.

Be resourceful

It is common for entrepreneurs to start from nothing and work their way up; this often means both financially and in terms of experience. Therefore, resourcefulness is key. The ability to make ends meet even on a tight budget and come up with creative ways to finance your efforts is vital in the early days of your business.

Networking

In order to make your business grow and establish itself on the market, it is important to create good connections with like-minded people. A good network of people can often serve as a helping hand. Don’t feel like you have to do everything on your own; help is there when you need it so don’t be afraid to ask!

Confidence and drive

Arguably the most essential part in succeeding as an entrepreneur is having absolute confidence in yourself and your ideas, and drive to make it all happen of course. If you believe in your business, you will have much more motivation to not only get started, but to keep working through the struggles you might face along the way. pa
