Achieve your goals and stay true to your values

Keep on track with the goals you set during your course:

  • Tell people about them and ask for their help - it's hard to do it on your own!
  • Re-evaluate your goals. Are they are realistic? Can you challenge yourself even more?
  • Break them down into smaller achievable stages- it's easier to start the journey with a single step.

Say Thanks

Most students receive some sort of support to attend OB including sponsorship, loaning gear, time off work, or even fitness tips. Now is the time to say thank you!

  • Share your story, and your thanks, with family, friends and employers.
  • Write to your supporters. It may have been Rotary, Lions, a Community Groups, or an individual donor through the Outward Bound Foundation. Just get in touch if you're not sure who supported you.
