Attract The Right Job Or Clientele:
Today’s blog title, ‘What Do You Want To Achieve Ultimately?’ relates to business and includes the infamous ‘bucket list.’ In our youth and beginning phase of adulthood, we do not realize that life is fragile. As we mature, we come to recognize that our life can turn upside down in an instant. It is the reason why so many people create a unique bucket list of activities to complete while they still can.
We all saw the perfect example of life uncertainties via the Covid 19 Virus. Traffic accidents, tornadoes, and other unexpected tragedies make the idea of maintaining a bucket list even more meaningful. Whenever possible, it is fulfilling to check off something on the list as we pat ourselves on the back, knowing we did it!
I sometimes punched a pillow to let the steam out.
My goal was to be in business in my younger day, although the societal expectation was to get married and stay home. A business career was for the men; accordingly, the sales profession was an absurd thought on my part. And then, after a successful sales career, the commentary went downhill upon my announcing I was a sales trainer. In person, I did my best to maintain a smile while at home; I sometimes punched a pillow to let the steam out.
But even when things appear to be quickly going downhill, I always keep in mind what I want to achieve ultimately. Motivation, perseverance, and using negativity as my motivating force to continue are my differentiators for moving past. Long ago, the song ‘I Wanna Be Somebody’ was released, and I immediately felt a deep connection with the title.
A good companion for what we want to achieve ultimately is in maintaining a bucket list. The term refers to, ‘when I have the time and-or the money I will do.’ Sadly, most people tuck their ideas away, unable to find the time or money to do what will matter to them.

For me, the bucket list topic is almost always about travel to countries I have not yet visited. But as I mentioned above, life is fragile. Due to a near-death experience, my goal became helping communities however I may. Service began by teaching job seekers to interview well by using successful sales and communication strategies. The service continues to expand through speaking, writing, and sharing insights on social platforms. I always attempt to add motivation for continuing despite circumstances around us and include tactical strategies for a better outcome.
Today, a commitment is in place for helping two organizations improve diversity and inclusion globally. The effort stems from prior experiences that go unappreciated. My combination of perseverance and striving to help others move past barriers gained recognition this past week. To my surprise and delight, CIO Views Magazine includes my story in the article entitled, ‘One Of The 10 Most Inspiring Business Leaders Making A Difference.’
The article’s title says it all for what I want to achieve ultimately ~ that is to help inspire others to achieve their ultimate goals.
