We are all looking for that magical key to success. How do we become successful? What motivates us to become successful and what it is success? These are questions that have been debated and spoken about for as long as we have been trying to achieve our goals and dreams.
Before half term, our Sixth Form students were treated to an afternoon lecture from magician Alasdair Chisholm. Alasdair spoke about motivation and how it is the key to success in everything we do. He also combined this with his skills as a magician and his motivational message was strong and very clear.
It was a fascinating lecture and the students picked up three key messages. Firstly, to be motivated you must really want what you are trying to achieve. Secondly, you must plot a pathway and set your goals. And thirdly, you must be persistent and take that first big step to realise your dreams.
Alasdair told some wonderful stories and combined his lecture with a magic show. The students left knowing how important it is to set goals and no matter what happens, if you really want something, you have to give it everything to achieve your aim.
