ORT Shares Woody Allen’s Secret to Success

Woody Allen

Do you have goals that you want to achieve but can’t seem to take the first step? Don’t worry, this is actually pretty common.

This quote from Woody Allen, a world-famous movie director, actor and writer, may motivate you to take the first step to reaching your goals.

“80% percent of success is showing up” – Woody Allen
What this quote means is that the most difficult part of reaching your goals is ‘showing up’ or taking the first step.
For example, if your goal is to go to the gym 2 times per week, you may notice that the hardest part is actually getting to the gym (that’s the 80%).  Once you’re there, you feel good about yourself and getting on the exercise equipment or joining an exercise class is easy.
Or, say you want to earn more money in a new career.  The hardest part may be making a commitment to enroll in a training program (this is the 80%).  Once you’ve made your decision, the school will help you with the rest.  We will help you choose the right program for your interests and abilities.  We will also help you enroll and help you find financial aid.  All you need to do is take the first step.   
Many times, in order to ‘show up’ you have to face a fear or do something you’ve never done before such as take an exercise class or call a student advisor.  But, just remember that this first step is the hardest part, but once you get through it, you’re on your way to achieving your goals!
