How I Landed a Job in my Dream Industry – Goal Setting

Just me staring ahead into the future and dreaming big!

Goal Setting

The first place to start with achieving any goal is to ruminate over what you want. What is that change or new thing you desire? Your desire must be strong enough in order to attract a fulfillment of it. As a man thinketh in his heart so is he. What you think about, you attract. So the first thing to do about changing your situation or have your dreams come true is to think about what you want and want it badly enough.

Think about it/Want that change badly enough

I had been working in a media organization for over 10 years and for a long while I wanted to change my workplace and career. There is this window view where I stood the first time I came to the organization, it felt good staring at rooftops of houses across the city. I took in a deep breath of fresh air, and I had this satisfying feeling that my dream of working in a media organization had just come true at the time. Fast forward a few years later, I would look at that view every morning dissatisfied! I wanted something different, I had grown and wanted to express myself differently. I wanted a change and so one day I took a photograph of that window view and kept praying and telling myself that my window view will change one day.
As I sit down to write this article, I am working in a new environment, and looking over a different window with a brand new view! Because I wanted my job to change badly enough to the point of thinking, dreaming and speaking about it, It happened for me.

Come up with an Action Plan

I did not stop with thinking and dreaming about the change I wanted, I began to ask myself some questions. To get your desired goal or dream, you need to think and come up with an action plan. You need to think of how to get from point A to point B. Nowadays we depend a lot on the Google map to help navigate from point A to our desired destination. To get anywhere there are routes and streets you must pass through. Sometimes more than one route can lead you to your destination but you need to know these routes. And if you do not know, you either ask someone who knows or get Google compass to help you reach your destination.

To get anywhere there are routes and streets you must pass through. Sometimes more than one route can lead you to your destination but you need to know these routes.

In my job change case, after making up my mind about where and what I wanted to do, I had to answer these questions: How do I get a new job? What kind of job will I like to do? What do I need to do to land a new job? So I decided to get a jotter to write down my thoughts. I wanted a job in the development space, an international non-governmental organization. Then I checked on whether I had the required skills to land a job with such an organization and I began to work on myself. Next, I subscribed to a website that gave updates on new jobs available in the industry I wanted to work in. Then I began to apply for jobs and I must tell you, I have loads of applications spanning two years to prove my seriousness. Now that’s funny but I must say it was share determination that kept me going.

Not Giving Up on Your Dream/Goal will get you there

At some point, I got discouraged sending in applications and wanted to give up. At first, nobody invited me for an interview but soon I began to get invited to some job openings. My next frustration was that I got invited for interviews but ended up not landing the jobs. Tempted to give up but my dream was stronger than failures and disappointments I faced. So I decided to use those interviews as a learning curve. I went back to prepare well for the next interview and the next…

Try Again

At that point when I was about giving up applying for any more job, two new positions were advertised by two different organizations. I tried talking myself out of attempting to send any application but that sense of try again stared me up. My applications were sent in and I forgot about them. Not long I got invited for an interview in the two organizations and eventually landed a new job just when I had given up! So have you tried something over and over again and you are about giving up, can I encourage you to “Try Again”! Often we give up when our breakthrough is just around the corner.

“Try Again”! Often we give up when our breakthrough is just around the corner.

Remember to Learn from Your Failures

It is not how many times you failed that matters, but how you apply lessons learned and use it to your advantage. Some goals and dreams can be achieved easily but some daring goals take time. You must be willing to stay through, grow through the process of waiting. Keep building your capacity and get yourself ready to achieve that desired goal/dream.
Your goal might simply be knowing how to cook, making new friends, dressing up smarter, building new relationships or building a skyscraper! It is all about you, what you want and your dreams and goals are valid. Keep trying, keep pushing and soon you will get there.

 Some goals and dreams can be achieved easily but some daring goals take time.

Be willing to have new dreams and Goals

Success is not a destination but progress in motion. Do not sit down on your laurels and achievement, dare to have new dreams and goals. Yes, you started a business, congratulations! But you need to remember that, that business needs to grow. What new level will you like to take your business, surely you will like to expand your clientele base. So dreams and goals have no end in sight. Keep dreaming, keep setting new goals, don’t remain static, keep moving.
As you achieve one goal after another remember to celebrate your milestones and enjoy it too even as you look forward to the next thing on your agenda. Enjoy your journey and enjoy your life!
