Shoot For The Moon! Why It’s Important To Try And Better Yourself

If you search online, you’ll find an endless stream of motivational quotes. Sayings can be inspirational. But it’s not enough to read the words. You also have to act on them. You only get one shot at life, so why not make it amazing? You don’t need to do something incredible every day. But don’t rest on your laurels. Make goals, and get out there and make them come true. Here are just some of the ways you can better yourself and live a more fulfilling life.


Career aspirations

Is work about paying bills and putting money on the table for you? Are you bored of the 9-5 grind, but reluctant to make changes? We spend an awful lot of time at work over the course of our lives, so try and find something you love. It’s fine to cruise along. But wouldn’t you rather find a role that challenges and excites you?

If you’re doing a job you find easy or mundane, consider looking for other openings. Do you have a dream job in mind, or are you passionate about your hobby? Sometimes, taking risks can pay off. Leaving a job is scary, but it can also open doors.

Even if you love your job, you can still push yourself to do better. Aim for that promotion, or make yourself a more versatile and capable worker. Develop your skills by looking into options like Training Connections Captivate classes. It’s never possible to know everything, and you can learn something new every day no matter how old or experienced you are.


Living life to the full

At times, you may go through periods when life comes to a standstill, but it’s always beneficial to try and progress in some way. Do things that challenge or scare you. Meet new people, and enjoy different experiences. Travel the world or learn a new skill. There are so many things you can do to better yourself and make sure you live life to the full. Don’t spend days dreaming about what you’d do in another life. Make those dreams a reality in this life. The bucket list may seem like a slightly morbid trend, but it has so many benefits. Think about what you want to accomplish in this lifetime, and work towards ticking off as many as you can. That simple list can give you motivation on even the dullest or most boring day. When you’re drawing up your list, try not to think about others. It’s very easy to copy other people’s’ ideas off the Internet, but that list is personal to them. Their aims and aspirations may be completely different to yours.

The saying goes ‘shoot for the moon, and if you miss, you’ll land in the stars.’ You may not be a fan of quotes and sayings, but there’s something in this. You’ll never regret trying to do something, but you may look back and wonder why you didn’t give something a go. As the New Year approaches, why not make it your mission to be the best version of yourself in 2017?
