How to Plan and Achieve Your Goals

Uncategorized May 04, 2021

So now you have the goal, you need the plan. To do this, look at where you are now and then look at all the things you would need to build the life you are picturing. For instance, you might find that you need a certain amount of money to make your dream of traveling happen. 

In that case, you need to look at the options available to you to make that money. Or maybe you want to achieve a certain thing in your career and you realize that in order to get there, there is a certain amount of experience you need to acquire first. How can you acquire said experience?

We raise our children to leave the nest, no question, but when this same child is now a young adult, searching for the next chapter in their young life, it is overwhelming for all involved.  We all want our child's dream to come true; the dream of the perfect school in the perfect city with the perfect roommate.  No one can promise that this will happen. NO ONE!  What can happen is that someone can be there to guide your family and child on the right path, and that is Amazing Journey College Counseling.
