New Beginnings – Part 3

New Beginnings – Part 3

Whether you are a recent graduate or a seasoned professional, attaining your CPA is a lofty goal, and one you can certainly achieve by the end of 2012. This week we will conclude my series on how you can make your resolution to become certified and keep it this upcoming year!

  1. Reward yourself. Candidates have shared stories of rewarding themselves with an ice cream or a small treat, while others have a night out with friends. Any reward will do, but it works best to determine what the reward will be before the week starts so you have something to look forward to.
  2. Stay motivated. Remember, after you pass the exam, you will make more money, it will be easier to find a job or get a promotion, and you will gain a sense of accomplishment and pride for passing this difficult exam. In the area where you study, keep a picture of the car you want, your dream vacation spot, or your family. When you grow weary of studying or making sacrifices, look at these and find the motivation to continue on with your preparations for passing the CPA exam.
