Under-achieving and over-achieving are two completely different conditions experienced by many people. They are noticed in sports, in children, academics as well as the corporate work-space. While over-achieving is defined as performing far better than normal, under-achieving is defined as performance which is far below the potential.
Many people stress from both of the conditions, but certainly being an over-achiever is better than being someone stressed with under-achieving. Under-achievers can however transform to over-achievers easily. With the mistakes, lack of interest, too much socialization or no social life at all and disorganization all gone in the past, an under-achiever can transform to over-achiever.
If you consider yourself as an under-achiever, we recommend you to practice these strategies and become an over-achiever:
1.Challenge Yourself – Challenge comes from within, and the best way to start the mental transformation is deep inside you. Create challenges and mini celebrations for each – you really deserve them, don’t you?
2.Make A List Of Things You Want To Change About Yourself – No one is perfect, but facing the things you are not good at and changing them is the real trait over-achievers have. You can start channeling your mistakes and eliminate them one by one by simply listing them out.
3.Get Inspired And Read – Reading about famous people and influencers who become instantly successful will trigger your mindset to the change you need – and give you the over-achieving potential.
4.Set Attainable Goals, Accomplish Them And Set Higher Ones – This three way process works best for over-achievers – and it can work for you easily. It’s simple – you set goals, accomplish them and then set higher goals. Without actually knowing it, you will become an over-achiever in everything you do.
At last, over-achieving will not only make you work more productive, it will create a better person out of you. You will be excited, take criticism as valid, take actions and be constructive at everything you do.
