Finally have a goal

Apr 03, 2016 - 3 comments

Okay well I've never really been someone who sets regular goals (could be why my motivation is so low), but guess what? Now i have one! It may be difficult and seems crazy at this point, but I have 2 possible career options in mind for my future; a Nutritionist/ Dietitian or a Physiotherapist. Now I dont know about other countries, but here, its quite difficult to get into Physio. It requires a really high ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank), or score for the end of year exams; around 90 approximately. Now, one of my good friends who did year 12 last year is way smarter than me, and got an 85 ATAR, So that shows you how hard it actually is. So, its not that I think its impossible, because I know nothing really is impossible... but at the same time its not likely. If I dont get into that course for Uni, then there should be some other pathway through another Uni, that may take longer, but as I've said "its about the journey, not the destination". Alot of people worry about how long their course is going to take... but really, its about your future, pursuing a career that suits you, so why does anyone care about how long it takes? I'll have to be okay with it if I dont get the ATAR I need, but there is always another way. Or there is a backup; Nutrition or Dietetics, which is something I've been extremely interested in during the past couple of months.

I HAVE A GOAL! Even though no matter how hard I work it wont guarantee that I'll get into Physio, because afterall it depends what happens during exams, and we just have to see. But having something to keep me going has excited me! Having some idea of what I want to do has excited me! So, basically I have reached my goal of finding a goal... if that makes sense. Anywho, time to work now, with that goal in mind, focus on the present and make the most of every day with just only 1 week left of holidays.

Next term will be difficult, and I would be lying if I said I was physically or mentally prepared... because I'm not. But we all just have to soldier on! This is an important year, and I'm not resting until I know I've given it everything I've got!!

BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm really happy that you have found a goal for yourself. Let it help you now, and motivate you now to get in the best position you can before going back to school. No time like the present Marcy. I'm so glad that you are considering the health field as there are many opportunities for you to choose from, although Physio, Nutrition or Dietetics sound like a very positive direction. Good for you Marcy. I'm proud of you as always. xo
