Setting Goals In 2012 – A Million Dollars
A lot of people in this business don’t understand just how important setting goals for yourself actually is. I actually started implementing goal setting in the middle of 2011 (like actually seriously started writing them down and posting them), and it resulted in a drastic increase in my income, over a half million dollars in less then half a year.
So the goal for 2012 for me is to hit a million dollars. I’ve never had a million dollar year, although I have got about half way there. This is a goal that’s going to be tough to reach, but at the same time it’s very achievable.
I think there are a lot of people that have set goals for themselves, but they haven’t taken it seriously, so I don’t really count that as setting goals.
Because I myself have “set goals” before – but I didn’t take them nearly as seriously as I did last time.
This time I set the goals, I wrote them down, I mapped out how I was going to achieve them, and I put them in a few different locations in my house where I work so that I can always look at them before I start or as I am working. This is so important to remind yourself what you’re doing and what you’re going after, especially with making money online.
Another important part of setting your goals is to know the WHY of your goals. Personally, for me, I first started setting my goals when I found out my first child was on the way. I really use him for my motivation – and as for the biggest reasons for making myself achieve my goals in 2012. Because if I achieve my goals, my son has a much better chance at succeeding in life and being able to do what he wants to do in life.
So this is what I recommend you do. Set goals for yourself in 2012.
But don’t just set them and forget them – set them, write them down, map them out – and post them around your house and work place. This has helped me tremendously in the last half a year.
I can’t say this is the main reason I’ve mad over a half million dollars in less than 6 months, but I can say that it has played a part in it.
It’s so much easier to achieve your goals when you actually have them set beforehand – have them mapped out – and have them somewhere where you are consistently seeing them!
I hope this helps you realize the importance of goal setting – and I hope you take this to heart and start setting your own goals for yourself!
