List your ambitions
Next time you’re heading out to a party or a job interview, spend a few minutes writing down your aspirations before you add the final touches to your make-up. The idea is not to speak about them, but simply to get you fired up and in the right mindset.
Research reveals that writing about ambitions can give you a noticeable boost and change the way others perceive you, so that you appear more impressive. The key is to put pen to paper. This helps you get more clarity than just thinking about your goals.
And forget about things you ought to do; this list is reserved solely for those things that really ll inspire you and give you a lift, the things you’d love to achieve. For example, one of Dr Yeung’s clients wanted to be more assertive at work. She wrote about wanting to take early retirement and spend time in places such as Uruguay while running a part-time consultancy. It wasn’t going to happen immediately, but it was a big dream, one that gave her a lift when she wrote about it. >>
