How Do You Foresee Your Proudest Achievement?

Do you sometimes give thought to, ‘How Do You Foresee Your Proudest Achievement?’ In my younger days, I wondered how people select a career.  Mid-life, I wondered why am I doing this? And then the next question became, of all my efforts, which one will become my proudest achievement?

The idea of your proudest achievement relates to both business and personal endeavors.  It also includes the infamous ‘bucket list.’ It takes us years to realize that life is fragile. As we mature, we come to recognize that our life can turn upside down in an instant. It is the reason why so many people create a unique bucket list of activities to complete while they still can.

Covid 19 provided the perfect example of life uncertainties. Traffic accidents, tornadoes, and other unexpected tragedies contribute to the idea of maintaining a bucket list even more meaningful. It becomes a fulfilling moment to check off something on the list as we pat ourselves on the back, knowing we did it!

Originally, my goal was to be in business although the societal expectation was for women to get married and stay home. A business career was for the men.  Accordingly, the sales profession was an absurd thought on my part. And then, after a successful sales career, the commentary went downhill upon my announcing I was a sales trainer. In person, I did my best to maintain a smile and ignore the nay-sayers.

But even when things appear to be quickly going downhill, I always keep in mind how I foresee my proudest achievement. Motivation, perseverance, and using negativity as my motivating force to continue are my differentiators for moving past. Long ago, the song ‘I Wanna Be Somebody,’ by Blackie Lawless, was released, and I immediately felt a deep connection with the title.

Maintaining a 'bucket list' is an excellent companion for achieving our ultimate proudest moment. The term refers to, ‘when I have the time and-or the money I will do.’ Sadly, most people tuck their ideas away, unable to find the time or money to do what will matter to them. 

It is with delight that BizCatalyst 360 is inviting the public to join their Bucket List event. They have a diverse lineup of speakers ready to provide their insights and inspiring thought. You may click this link to register free of charge.

For me, the bucket list topic is almost always about travel to countries I have not yet visited. But as I mentioned above, life is fragile. Due to a near-death experience, my goal became helping communities however I may. Service began by teaching job seekers to interview well by using successful sales and communication strategies. The service continues to expand through speaking, writing, and sharing insights on social platforms. Motivational tips are a part of the messaging to inspire others their continuing effort despite circumstances. I also include tactical strategies for a better outcome.  

Today, a commitment is in place for helping two organizations improve diversity and inclusion globally. The effort stems from prior efforts that were never appreciated. 

It is my ongoing combination of perseverance and striving to help others move past barriers that landed recognition this past week. To my surprise and delight, CIO Views Magazine includes my story in the article entitled, ‘One Of The 10 Most Inspiring Business Leaders Making A Difference.’  

The article’s title says it all for what I want to achieve ultimately ~ that is to help inspire others to achieve their ultimate goals.

How Do You Foresee Your Proudest Achievement?

Some may say that your goals are too lofty and unrealistic. But are those people fortune-tellers who realize all of your capabilities today and through time?

Remind yourself to pay more attention to what holds importance to you than to the misspoken claims of those in your circles. Become your motivational coach with the daily routine of giving yourself a pep talk. Then, on the days that the critique is too much to bear, consider hiring a coach who will motivate, inspire, and provide new ideas for advancement.  

Include in your activities:

  • A continuing bucket list to achieve and cross off as complete
  • Continual goal setting for what you want to achieve ultimately
  • Remaining abreast of new development that may affect your desire
  • Flexibility for achieving the ‘best for last.’

Should you be uncertain about a far-stretching goal, keep it to yourself and only share with those you completely trust. The last thing you want is to have someone talk you out of achieving what holds importance. 

"One of the worst feelings is to live life with regret."

If you have ever known someone who gave up on their dreams, you will not want to do the same.

Similar to anything we attempt in life, brace yourself for the ‘trial and error’ experience. The errors become our guides for how to improve the effort to find success. Flexibility is a requirement for almost everything new we attempt. 

Most of all, when we want something badly enough, we will find a way. Adopt the philosophy to find your way and enjoy life with a smile on your face knowing you can achieve the seemingly impossible!

Sales Tips:  What Do You Want To Achieve Ultimately?

  1. Envision the last day of your career, and you see it as your proudest achievement.
  2. Find a special quiet time to reflect on what you already have achieved.
  3. Recall the obstacles you moved past to get to where you are today.
  4. Admit to your conscience what you want to achieve ultimately.
