Did you know that there was something in common between high school students and students who were really “ready to be accepted by U.S. colleges and Universities”? The secret of success often lies 80% in understanding why I do something. What really makes me move. The remaining 20% is accounted for by the nuances of the admission process. About the nuances – both EducationUSA Russia programs and advisors will always come to help during individual consultations.

What do you need to be prepared for to achieve your goals, you may ask? A dream is usually a set of bright images: our desires and for most people unattainable. But there is always a gap between our fantasies and reality. And you need to be determined to take a step towards your dream. The realization of a dream is the lot of the strong, purposeful and motivated. The rest-can remain with a dream from a set of beautiful images. A dream is a work, a daily struggle, where step by step, through small victories and sometimes failures, there is a movement towards the cherished goal.
How do you achieve your dreams? 1. Make a firm decision. Say to yourself Yes, I will do “it “(psychological commitment) 2. Goal. Create a plan and calendar of actions. Break a big plan into small steps 3. Take the first step towards your dream (specific action) 4. To be flexible throughout the movement, mark your mistakes and correct them. If the strategy does not work, then change the strategy and continue to move forward! 5. Recognize your small victories on the way to the intended goal 6. Always keep in mind a clear understanding of the goal (where I’m going, and why I’m doing it).
Not easy, you say? Yes. This is true. On the other hand, dreamers who accomplish their plans are those who stand at the Top of Olympus: in science, in business, and in art. Are you ready to be there at the Top? Here are some remarkable transformations that happen to those who daily go step by step to their cherished dream:
#1 — Dreams are material. What you Dream of becomes a part of you
#2 — You’ll start paying attention to other things than ever before
#3 — Suddenly, your life starts to change direction
#4 — You begin to understand that self-development is a part of your life
#5 — When you fail, you rise up and start moving forward
#6 — You start to take care of each second of your time
#7 — The word “impossible” skips out of your vocabulary
#8 — You start getting inspiration from other people who have achieved their dreams
#9 — When bad habits prevent you from moving forward, you admit it to yourself
#10 — You start paying attention to details
#11 — Step by step, your little victories will make your Dream come true
More than 1 million international students have chosen the United States, a country where they want to gain practical knowledge at more than 4,500 accredited colleges and universities. These students were motivated by a Dream. A Dream through which U.S. colleges and universities graduates can make our world a better place. Ask yourself: do I have a Dream? Do I have a Dream for which I am ready to work every day and give myself to it? If you said “Yes” to yourself, then feel free to start moving forward, towards your goal.
