Letter from the President
Dear Society Member,
It’s officially June 2017, and another academic year is in the books. As you begin to jump into your summer activities, I want to stress the importance of not losing sight of the bigger picture and continuing to strive toward your goals—whatever those may be.
While many see time off as an excuse to put everything on hold and take a break from it all—don’t! These next few months can be the perfect opportunity for you to tap into your calling and take action toward living out your purpose.
When it comes to the topic of pursuing passion, nobody positions it better than best-selling author of, The Art of Work, Jeff Goins:
Declare you are what you’re waiting to be.
Believe in your dream before you see it.
And then do it.
Remember: Until you start living it, you’re only dreaming.”
Once you have determined your passion and purpose— it’s time to start focusing on it! A terrific way to stay focused on your goals during break is to put it into practice. Start by creating a virtual or physical goal board for motivation and fill it with directed imagery that will keep you enthused and reminded of your focus.
The message I want to leave you with this month is to stay attentive on your goals and don’t forget to link the short-term with the-long term. The actions and decisions you make daily have an impact and must lineup with your big-picture vision.
Congratulations on a successful academic year and I hope you have a wonderful start to your summer.
