The right mindset

It is so important to have the right mindset to achieve anything in life especially if you work for and by yourself. Just dreaming to have a fancy car, a nice house and no money worries doesn’t do it. You have to be prepared to actually work for your dream to come true. It’s tough but such is life.
That means you have to set goals. First the big long term one and from there you break it down to the shorter and shorter term tasks you need to accomplish to get to where you want to be. Until you reach the point where you know what you have to do on a daily basis. I am a strong believer in writing goals down, making a list.

Once you have your daily list of goals you revisit them and decide which ones are the important ones. Image you get sick this evening and couldn’t work for the next four weeks, which of the things on your list would you want to have completed. Those are the tasks you do first, followed by the other jobs.
My big mistake is to always add too many things to my list and then I am disappointed that I haven’t finished them all. It’s not the end of the world but it irks me. I’ll have to learn to have a shorter list. After all, time to relax needs to be included in the day as well.

I have followed this system for a while now and it feels so good when you can cross things of your list. I find that I get jobs done easier and with more purpose.

Coming back to internet marketing: without a clear idea of what you want to accomplish on that day, it’s so easy to get side tracked. After all you have to investigate what other websites and blogs are doing and you have to research your subject. If you don’t have a list of tasks you want to achieve on that day you can get into trouble real fast.

Then of course there are all this other offers of products you are sure would make your online marketer life easier. They actually might, but you will get side tracked and lose time and purpose that way. I have been there and done that and always found a new promising product to investigate and buy. The end result wasn’t so successful. I learnt the hard way to concentrate on one system and follow that through until you succeed.

There is plenty of advice on goal setting out there and a lot of it is good. But in the end it’s common sense and discipline which will get you there.

Thanks for reading. See you next time.
