For a start, let’s define what it means to be a Go-Getter.
A Go-getter is an active and enterprising person, one who is motivated or inclined to excel, one who strives to achieve success or improvement.
Go-getters ultimately prevail in all aspects of life; academics, relationship, personal fulfillment, and the likes.
Some of the qualities of a go-getter include:
1. Go-getters are goal oriented and vision minded
They have dreams and aspirations (a guiding vision). They give themselves wholly to the process of ensuring the dream is fulfilled.
2. They are consistent and show up every day
Oftentimes, they are weak and don’t feel like it but are disciplined enough to stay glued to the course without shifting focus. Go-getters are not a lazy set of people. They sometimes deny themselves of having fun or get involved in social activities in order to get things done. They put in the time to achieve their goals.
3. Go-getters celebrate past achievements
They count their victories, which encourages them to do more. They don’t focus on past achievements and relax but see that as a stepping stone to do more.
4. Go-getters do what they love
They get involved in things that they are passionate about and are excited to work it out. There is always the inner drive and joy that comes from doing what they love.
5. Go-getters surround themselves with like-minded people
They are usually with people that encourage them and want to see them perform at their best. They give themselves to relationships that build them and help them get towards their set goals.
6. Go-getters are courageous
They give no room for timidity. They are risk takers. They usually do what they are afraid to do.
7. Go-getters do not give up easily
They don’t give up until the goal is attained, even on days when motivation runs low. They learn from their mistakes and strive to get better.
You can only become a Go-getter if you choose.
Move slowly in the direction of your goals, take it one at a time, you don’t necessarily have to do it all at once. Foster the habit of a Go-getter in you!
