Pro Certified Results Coach Brodie Whitney was invited to share his “Own Your Success” message with TIA students and parents for the second year this October. The Own Your Success event teaches high school students how to turn dreams and aspirations into reality.
Dreams and How to Achieve Them
Most students have dreams of a better life, one that includes getting a job they like, a decent salary for that job and to have their own place to live. But how do they achieve those dreams? How can they turn those dreams into achievable expectations? Attending college is one of the most solid steps to achieving their dreams. But what if they’re having trouble envisioning college in their future? Coach Brodie, from Robbins Research International, is a powerful motivator. Before the event, he gets a snapshot of the particular needs and strengths of TIA’s high school students from TIA’s staff and leaders, which then allows him to specifically aim his coaching and motivation to the unique attributes of TIA students.
Coach Brodie covered these topics for the students:
- Know What You Want
- Know Your Why?
- Take ACTION!
- Evaluate Your Results
- Adjust and Refine Until You Hit Your Mark
Coach Brodie declared, “Your identity is stronger than your wants. How you define yourself today determines the results you will live with tomorrow. By choosing courage over apathy today, you lead yourself and others to a new tomorrow.”
What Students Had to Say
After the event, some of TIA’s students shared what they learned from Coach Brodie.
“Anyone can dream but not everyone will chase their dream. So we just have to be the ones who dream and chase our dreams…It’s our power to chase what we want to be in the future.”
“Success has different meaning for different people…If you fail, it doesn’t mean you can’t succeed anymore…If you fail, it’s something to motivate you to keep going.”
“Success has different definitions to each individual. It doesn’t always have to be about money. It can be about what makes you happy. What do you want to achieve in life? Take big or small steps to get there. Always be uplifting. Never focus on the past. Move forward.”
More About Coach Brodie
Coach Brodie decided to interview, and learn from, the most successful people to find out what they were doing to set and achieve their goals. Then he took what he found and used it to change his own life. Now he teaches what he learned to adults and students around the world so they, too, can set goals to and become successful at life.
