That One Advice

Primary school results were announced and 10-year-old Anne was frantically awaiting hers. My main goal was to become an F16-pilot thus my results had to be good so I could be allowed to this one particular school. My dream got shattered that day as my results were not good enough and when I got home I hid myself in this ”secret” room in a hut made out of matrasses. It was here where my dad taught me one of the biggest lessons when he came search for me.: “Anne, you have this goal, do not let this be taken away from you by this one result. You do not have to follow this main road that was in your head, there are numerous roads that can lead up to where you want to be and what you want to become.”

To this day, I still live by that advice. Over the years I realized though that it was not only 1 advice but actually 3.

  • If you really want to reach a goal, it is yours to grab just as long as you really really want it and your sole focus is to get there.
  • There is not only 1 path that leads to this goal. There are numerous ways to get there. If you focus too much on one route, you can loose your flexibility to adapt if circumstances changes
  • Last but not least, it is actually not always about the goal itself but the journey that leads up to this goal. Look at me graduating law school, build my career in the surf industry and currently live in Bali.

Living by this advice has made me realize how much I am, and everyone is, capable of reaching your goals as long as I remain focused, flexible and open-minded.
