Latest data has revealed that the UK is full of ambitious people, with as many as 77% saying that 2018 will be the year that they plan to get out there and pursue their dreams.
The survey of 5,000 UK residents, compiled by the worlds’ second largest smartphone manufacturer Huawei, revealed that of the 85% who have one or more goals they want to achieve, 57% said that they want to start up their own business.
Interestingly, the most ambitious city was Exeter, followed by Leeds, Cardiff, Birmingham and Bristol.
When questioned about the barriers people had with regards to achieving their goals, the main reasons given were: not having enough money, needing better technology, confidence, motivation and time.
Leading psychologist and life coach, Corinne Sweet, explained, “In an increasingly fast-moving, 24/7 world, people need to have access to the right tools to be able to realise their visions, cope with the pace of modern life and achieve their goals. Technology can be a huge aid as we want to be able to operate on the move, across borders and clearly, with each other. It’s time for Britons to use technology to empower them psychologically, to help turn their dreams into reality and to create financial and social success.”
Steven Bartlett, CEO and founder of Social Chain added, “It doesn’t surprise me that we are an ambitious nation. I see everyday people who have incredible ideas and goals. I firmly believe technology can help people achieve their dream be that a professional goal or a more lifestyle-focused desire. I have used technology to build a business that was a long-term dream of mine and am delighted to be working with Huawei to inspire people to use technology to unlock their own potential.”
