Special Feature From ICAJ on Ms. Sherianne Llewelyn.

ACCA Journey

It was always Sherianne’s intention to attempt the ACCA papers after completion of her first degree programme at UTech. Therefore, in 2014, she took up the mantle and after much research made the decision to enroll with the Global Accountancy Institute to complete her professional accountancy studies.

There were stumbles in her first attempts at the exams, which was a totally new feeling to her in all her years of studying. However, after much in-depth thought and review; Sherianne dusted herself off and restarted with the aim of never looking back or failing again.

Top student

Sherianne successfully completed her final ACCA professional examination, obtaining the highest mark in Paper F8 (Audit and Assurance) in Jamaica in the December 2015 sitting. She also placed first in the island in Paper P1 (Governance, Risk and Ethics) in the June 2016 sitting of the ACCA examinations. She describes the journey of completing her ACCA’s exam as a rough, tiring, disciplined and focused one but where in the end, the hard work, determination and dedication paid off. “There will always be naysayers but you should know when to shut them out and press on”, she said.

Sherianne thanks her mother, family members, friends and co-workers who always encouraged her in her educational journey. She also thanks lecturer at the Global Accountancy Institute, Dr. Glen Brown, for his support. “My recommendation to current students is never give up on your goals. Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it. If you quit once it becomes a habit. Never quit!” she advised.

The Key To Perseverance

The Definition Of Perseverance

 From a dictionary: “Persisting in or remaining constant to a purpose, idea or task in spite of obstacles.” Notice it doesn’t start, “Wisely persisting…” Perseverance can clearly be both a good thing and a bad thing. Remember that when you find yourself wanting to quit something. Quitting might be the wisest choice.

Of course, the problem with the idea that you should quit when something isn’t worth the effort, is that it’s often used as a rationalization. It comes to mind when the effort is difficult, but really is worthwhile. It’s confusing at times, so how do you wisely persevere? There are three important aspects to consider.

Keys To Wise Perseverance

1. Self awareness: Notice when you look for excuses, rather than  truth. Are you letting fear or laziness cause you to quit or procrastinate? If honestly watching yourself is difficult, explain your reasoning to a friend. Close friends may be more likely than you to know when you’re rationalizing. (Think about it from the other direction and you’ll see this can be true.)

2. Costs and benefits: To wisely persevere, you need to see the costs and benefits of what you are doing. If moving to Hollywood to become a star is going to cost you your business or family life, you have to see that clearly before you decide. An honest and good decision requires honest and good information.

3. Motivation: Once you’ve made a decision, and you’re sure you made it for the right reasons, you have to motivate yourself. In fact,  perseverance requires that you regularly re-motivate yourself. Write goals down, do daily affirmations, and whatever else you have to do.

Habit is the most powerful secret of success. Practice watching yourself to make self-awareness a habit. Practice analyzing costs and benefits objectively, and practice motivating yourself. By the way, there are many good motivation techniques, so if what you’re doing doesn’t work – go read up on them and try something else. That’s perseverance.
Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.

How to Motivate Yourself Forever

Just as willpower is an essential factor in achieving success, at some point in time, discouragement and lack of motivation may hinder you from reaching your objective. And it is up to you, and you alone to devise techniques that will help you keep that drive within afire.

It is helpful to have visual goals. whatsoever that is you are working towards, make it visual. It maybe something material like a car, or a vacation you have been looking forward to for the longest time.

Take or cut out a picture of it and post it at a conspicuous place at work or at home where you can see it often. So that when you feel discouraged, this will remind you of your goal and will help you keep your spotlight.

Make a contract with oneself. According to motivational researches, people who write down to-do-lists are far more triumphant in achieving their intended goals than those people who just keep mental lists instead.

Putting something in writing somehow makes it more powerful psychologically speaking. This may also be the basis why most cultures have such a high regard in honoring contracts. In the contract, you may also include a certain reward that you will give yourself once you have accomplished the task.

After all, everyone likes to be rewarded for completing a good job. Even a simple pat on the back, “good job”, or “thank you” may do the trick to give the person the additional push to carry on, but unfortunately, these may not always be readily available. Considering that these are also essential in keeping oneself motivated, you must learn to find a way to get that encouragement on your own through pleasing yourself.

Abusive people lower your self-esteem and bring you down. Get these negative people out of your life. Surround yourself with positive people. Imitate their example. Smile amply and think happy thoughts.

These will give you a brighter outlook and lets you see a clearer picture of what you really want and a fresh mind to know what steps to take to get there. Rather than wait for things to happen, try to be proactive and MAKE THINGS HAPPEN. Inactivity idles the brain and stagnates your potential to reach your goals.

Read inspirational books and literature. These will help you improve your attitude and heal your mind. A book of success stories also proves to be encouraging. You will not only learn from others’ experiences and derive confidence boosting insights from them but the story will be instrumental in motivating you to go for your goal and move ahead with your plans. If this still seems to falter, get training or education.

Oftentimes, not knowing how or where to start is frustrating. Knowledge is power. Having a clear understanding of how and where to start is empowering and it will provide the extra drive needed to hit the mark you are aiming at and follow it through.

Having enumerated all these tips and tricks to attain self-motivation, but still you seem to feel lacking that much needed drive, there is one last thing that you must try.

Whatever it is that you have been meaning to do, or wanting to achieve, JUST DO IT! Keep on aiming high and go for it! Actually getting your hands dirty best solves the problem of motivation. By “forcing” yourself to just do it, your momentum will pick up gradually as you go along and before you know it you have finished the task or have finally achieved your goal. Divide and conquer is the key.

Break down the apparently unattainable activity to small doable steps. Not only does it become less overwhelming, but seeing the “in the meantime” results will further your confidence that it can indeed be done.

Lack of motivation happens to us all, but if you do not encourage yourself to accept opportunities and be challenged, no one else will. It is most important to keep your eye on the goal, find ways to keep going, and in no time, you shall reap its benefits.

And if at the beginning you were just doing it for the material reward, you will also learn to realize that the fulfillment, satisfaction and self-achievement you derive from reaching your goal is a much enjoyable high that will keep the drive within constantly burning.

Auditing Gets Smart

Auditors may have suffered a reputational crisis in the wake of recent corporate financial scandals; but using artificial intelligence and data analytics, the profession hopes to reinvent itself.

Auditing in the 1960s was regimented. “We had a strict dress code: Only black and white were allowed,” says Gianni Mion, who worked at chartered accountants Peat Marwick Mitchell from 1966 to 1973 before the company merged in 1987 with KMG to form KPMG—the first megamerger of large accounting firms. “Even a pale colored shirt was out of the question,” he says.

Recalling his apprenticeship at Peat Marwick Mitchell, Mion, formerly executive vice president of Edizione Holding, which manages the Benetton family’s diversified business interests, says the workload was huge. “At the beginning it was not so clear why we were doing what we were doing,” he says. “During our training, a manager from New York told us how the audit was important to defend the market and that the market was important for democracy. His speech was convincing. It gave a meaning to all the hard work we were doing. Since then, I always trusted this was the case.”
