For me personally there are 2 A’s that can make a huge difference in your life. It all starts with ambition; a strong desire & determination to achieve anything possible. If you want to achieve something, you will normally have to work for it (there are of course always exceptions to this rule, but please forget about those). The first step is of course knowing what you want to achieve; on personal level and/or on professional level. What is your ambition? What do you desire the most? It might take some time to really figure that out, but once you know, it is time to take action! The second A that makes a difference.

“Action is the foundational key to all success.”

Pablo Picasso

There are many ways to take action. Usually my first step in taking action is coming up with a plan; answer questions to yourself such as ‘What is your first step?’, ‘How will you get there?’,.. And definitely don’t forget to ask questions, ask advice from people,… Usually people just give up because they are afraid to ask questions and get help. So my advice is, don’t be afraid. If you have set your goal, you should really go for it and maybe take risks. But that is something you won’t regret since you want to achieve that one thing!
“Ambition is the first step to success. The second step is action.”
