Celebrating the 6000th CRSP 
View this email in your browser
Many individuals fail to achieve their goals not because they lack desire but because they lack determination.
At the BCRSP office, there are files from applicants who, for a variety of reasons, failed to complete the certification process. Perhaps they overextended themselves or started the process without a plan. The reason isn’t important, what is important is that we learn from their mistakes. 
Attaining the CRSP® designation is not an overnight process rather it is a commitment to yourself and to your career.  With commitment comes challenges and the key to successfully attaining the CRSP® certification is being prepared and committed to pushing forward. 118 successful candidates who passed the June CRSP® Examination were both prepared and committed to achieving their goals.  
Based on conversations with certificants we have compiled some suggestions to help you achieve your goals both personally and professionally.

# 1 Set goals that motivate you. When you set a specific goal ask yourself
  • Why is the goal important to you?
  • What is the value if you achieve it? 
# 2 Set “SMART” goals. (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-bound.)

# 3 Put your goal in writing and make a detailed action plan. Most importantly, commit to your goal.

For more information on the CRSP® certification process, download a SMART Goal Worksheet to help you get started on your path to certification.  The next Application Deadline is September 2, 2016.
