Think about using the start of this new year as a springboard for change…
What are your passions? Your ambitions? When are you going to take that first step? How are you going to stay the course?
In what part of your life would you like to shine more brightly? One of the most common traits throughout all of our UNE Online students is passion. Passion for work, passion for a long term goal, passion for excellence, passion for helping others. Passionate people have a sort of electric energy about them. They’re motivators, leaders, and paradigm shifters. Passionate people get things done.
How do you become a passionate person? You start. You start somewhere.
Make a decision for you
So where are you going to decide to start? What does this new year in particular mean to you? New beginnings? New opportunities? A fresh start? All of the above?
Of course, you can dream up reasons for why now isn’t the right time, this isn’t the right place, and you’re not quite ready, but why deny yourself opportunities? Why prevent progress? Go for it!
- Embrace opportunity
- Embrace potential
- Embrace success
The journey of 1,000 miles…
If you’ve always wanted to learn how to build a bookshelf or paint a landscape – or more serious pursuits like learning how to write effective public health communication strategies or how to effect education reform – do it! Investing in yourself like this can only be beneficial for you in the long run.
Embrace change, challenge yourself. Make the first step.
The power of passion and hard work
And then there’s the other, less glamorous side of passion. The behind the scenes. What happens between the ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures. Once you’ve bought all of the course books and fresh school supplies… sharpened your pencils, installed Evernote in your Chrome browser, set up your Blackboard account… now comes the hard work.
But you are not in this alone. We’re here to help you through the hard part. Our mantra is ‘success through support’ and we have an amazing success rate – much higher than industry average. At UNE Online we are very intentional about implementing best practices to ensure your success.
Moving forward – embrace a better future
This new year, we at UNE Online encourage you to step back and take a fresh look at your goals. There’s no one size fits all answer. Find your passion and embrace the hard work that it takes to realize those dreams. You’re in charge of where you go and in a lot of cases, how quickly you get there.
You have the intelligence, strength, and ability to effect serious change in your life. Take advantage of it. And take advantage of the resources you have through UNE Online.
Whatever your goal is for this year, or this week, or even just today, we encourage you to dive in. Give us a call and see how we can help you embrace your future.CGPS | College of Graduate & Professional Studies | UNE Online
