Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success. – Stephen A. Brennan
I saw this quote this morning and thought of myself over the past week. I set the goal of finishing up the corporation and estate and gift tax lectures and I succeeded. I even went above and beyond my own goal and completed the lectures on professional responsibilities and the securities acts of 1933 and 1934. Needless to say I am proud of myself! I am hoping and praying to be on my own route to success because I dont have room for failure this time around.
This week I am going to go out on a whim and set the goal of finishing up the tax lectures. This may be unattainable where my works annual Red Sox game is tonight and I cannot miss that event! Who could pass up a free night out on the firm to watch your beloved home team!? I will just have to work extra hard this weekend in between my little brothers going away party and my own errands that need to get done.
He is moving to Florida this weekend to fulfill his own goals and I am so proud of him. This is the year of goals in my family thats for sure!
I cant lie I am in a bit of a panic over it. I am even debating on moving my testing date to allow myself one extra week of studying. I am on vacation the week after my original test date of 7/2 so the extra time to study may be worth my while. Anyone else starting to panic?
I sometimes feel that the forums freak me out with everyone saying how prepared they were walking into REG and then left feeling as though they knew nothing at all. Almost makes me wonder if I ever will pass this exam.
I cant let others thoughts on REG dictate how I go about the exam though because I think if that were the case I would throw in the towel and just walk into the exam blind. I am trying to look past others experiences and worry only about myself because in the end who are we really trying to please? No one but ourselves!
Each and every one of us decided to take this journey and at the end of the day if we can look ourselves in the mirror and say I gave it my all then I think we should be proud of ourselves regardless of the outcome.
Heres to a successful week of studying! Good luck everyone ?
