M03- journal 3 – chapter 3

here are multiple parts to this journal, you will visualize the accomplishment of one of your most important goals or dreams.  Once you vividly picture this ideal outcome, you will have strengthened your commitment to achieve it, and you will know how to do the same thing with all of your goals and dreams

Part 1 – Using the DAPPS rule explained in chapter 3, please write one personal goal and one professional goal.

Part 2 – After vividly picturing yourself accomplishing this goal, write a paragraph describing this exact moment.  Describe the scene of your success as if it is happening to you now. Write a visualization of the future when you are experiencing the accomplishment of your biggest goal or dream in your role as a student or your future career role.   Describe the scene of your success as if it is happening to you now. 

Remember the four keys to effective visualization:

  • Relax to free your imagination.
  • Use present-tense verbs…the experience in happening NOW!
  • Use all five senses.  What do you see, hear, smell, taste, and feel (touch)?
  • Include emotion.  Imagine yourself feeling great in this moment of grand accomplishment.  You deserve to feel fantastic! 

Read your visualizations often.  Ideal times are right before you go to sleep and when you first awake in the morning.  You may even wish to record your visualizations and listen to them often.  Now that you have written a goal for personal and professional areas let’s look to academic goals.

Part 3 – Now that you can visualize achieving this long term goal, let’s look at the steps needed to get there.  Break this long term educational goal down into 5 next steps, also known as short-term goals, to create a personal transfer or academic timeline.  These steps can include but are not limited to the following: deciding upon a major, meeting with your advisor, creating an individual academic plan, registering for upcoming semesters, financial aid deadlines, available meetings/tours, application deadlines, research needing done, basic information about your credits transferring, what differences to expect if you transfer to another college/university, and how you plan to increase your engagement at this new school.  Make sure to include the dates in the future that these five short term goals will be accomplished by and how you plan to achieve this. 

– If you create a personal transfer timeline, a suggestion is to share basic information about your credits transferring, what differences to expect at your new college/university, and how you plan to increase your engagement at your new school.

– If you create a personal academic timeline, a suggestion is to share basic information about deciding on your major, meeting with your advisor, registering  for upcoming semesters, creating an individual academic plan, financial aid deadlines, etc.

Include the goal description, future due date, and how you plan to accomplish this goal for each.
