When you embrace each step along the way your focused journey is the reward.
Meaningful goals act as a catalyst, increasing energy, improving decision making and strengthening commitment. Most adventures will include detours or setbacks, so if you are not truly enthusiastic about your goals, it’s easy to become dejected, lack fortitude and give up. Your sense of purpose paired with focus is what keeps you on track. It gives you persistence to grind, stretch, fall down, standup, overcome, improve habits and make profound choices.
The media would have us believe that the outcome determines success, however, the leading sports psychologists, authors and spiritual gurus agree it’s more beneficial to focus on the progress than the outcome. When you embrace each step along the way with focus and purpose, regardless of the outcome, you win! As a mom, working professional and athlete, Arika V. Johnson shares how her true success has been in living life’s moments and the amazing friendships along the way.
Arika is a native of Bismarck, ND. Throughout her life, Arika has been known for seamlessly adapting to a fast-paced environment where deadlines are priority, leading business success, establishing direction, and supporting staff in accomplishing personal and professional goals. Achieving year over year high performance accolades such as a #1 top performing Partner with Thrivent Financial, a Fortune 500 financial services firm. Furthermore, Arika has been successful at establishing productive relationships, collaborating with all professional levels, and leading and mentoring high-caliber staff throughout the United States, which significantly optimized productivity and drives results.
With progressive experience in diverse business operations, Arika has cultivated her ability to remain focused and decisive in the most challenging of situations both personally and professionally such as climbing out of post partum-depression after the premature birth of her sons to training for Ironman. Equally important is a strong focus on her Christian faith and raising her twin five year old boys, Anders and Espenn. Arika resides in Devils Lake, ND and celebrates daily her incredible partnership with her husband and number one cheerleader, Paul Johnson.
