When I watch Wimbledon, I sit gripped on the edge of my seat with my family all around me, and I can't help but think if a young lad from Scotland can reach his dreams and goals, I can too!
Andy Murray got where he is today through endless preparation. He trained for months and sacrificed a lot to reach the top. He must of turned down nights out with his friends, the odd beer and his mum's Sunday roast so he could give himself the best chance to succeed. Plenty of people probably sit at home criticizing players, claiming they could do it better themselves but the reality is, far too many people are just too lazy to try and reach their goals.
To be the next CFO, it's not a walk in the park. It entails working a lot of long hours and dealing with stressful situations daily, that enable you to get even closer to reaching that dream. Not only do you have to work to the best of your ability, you need to think positively and believe in yourself that you can do it. It is those positive thoughts that keep you motivated.
So next time you are going for that promotion, remember you're not going to get it if you think "it's going to be easy", fail to prepare, prepare to fail. We here at Morgan McKinley can be your Career Ally and help with your CV, interview preparation and generally give you some inside knowledge throughout your career, from straight out of practice to CFO level.
When going for that next role, think of Andy Murray and how he was the first British man in 77 years to win Wimbledon and don't forget that you can reach your dreams too if you put your whole heart and soul into it.
