“Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings” Salvador Dalí


The Cambridge Dictionary defines a Go-Getter as “someone who is very energetic, determined to be successful, and able to deal with new or difficult situations easily.” Becoming a Go-Getter involves three simple steps: the first is setting a goal, the second involves taking the steps that will guide you to achieving your goal, and the third involves reaching the goal. All the characteristics of a Go-Getter are not found in one individual, but does require constant work from every individual.


Here are a few simple tips on becoming a Go-Getter:


·         Create a VISION for your life

·         BELIEVE in yourself and remember the challenges you have already overcome

·         Find a way to combine your PASSIONS into your work

·         Decisions should be STRATEGIC and well thought out

·         PROCRASTINATION is the biggest obstruction to becoming a Go-Getter

·         It is important to be DISCIPLINED and show up everyday

·         CELEBRATE each victory or step achieved along the way no matter how small

·         Your SUPPORT system should consist of like-minded people

·         Be COURAGEOUS and face the unknown

·         Don’t QUIT, especially if your goal includes something you love

·         FAILURE should be welcomed and considered as useful feedback
