The Art Of Getting What You Want

You might not have the cash to drop on 7 rings like Ariana Grande, but don't let that stop you from dreaming big. Within the past year, I have significantly changed my outlook on life and it has yielded me more opportunities than I could have ever imagined. Having always been an ambitious person, I used to set goals for myself but hesitated to act on them because I would constantly think about what could go wrong. Don't fall into the same mental trap. If you have a desire to pursue your passion, go at it with full speed. Here are some tips that will help you to master the art of getting what you want.

Drop the negativity and when you think you're dreaming big, dream bigger.

Before you can manifest a goal, you need to conceptualize it. If you have a negative mindset, this will be nearly impossible because you have already caused yourself to fail before even trying. Once you exit a negative headspace, you will be able to come up with goals and devise a plan to achieve them. As you let your creative thought process flow, ask yourself how you can make your ideas bigger and better. What do they lack, and what are you willing to do to make them happen? Let these questions guide you as you brainstorm.

Strive to be humble and the hardest worker in the room.

Never lose sight of the fact that everyone starts out a beginner, and that there will always be someone who is smarter and more talented than you. Once you come to accept these truths, you can go after your goals with humility and maybe even make some true friends along the way. Give every task your 100% effort and become the hardest worker in your group.

If you are truly passionate, quitting is not an option. Practicing persistence is key.

Instant gratification does not exist when it comes to achieving success. As long as you exhibit a drive for what you do, setbacks will not get in the way of what you are destined to accomplish. Never forget that to be successful, you have to be consistent, so continue to put in the time and energy to make it happen. Persistently going after your goals will bring you so much closer to getting what you want.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
