... have you? Success means achieving the goals you have set for yourself? And if you don't set your goals, you're not going to succeed. Period! How do you define your goals? "making money" is not a goal... "being rich" isn't either. You want to succeed? SET A DEFINITIVE GOAL FOR YOURSELF! Most of us fail because we don't have what success is to us? We don't know what are our goals. Think about a ship that sets off to a voyage not knowing where its going. It would leave the shore, sails for a month (or two, or three) and eventually end up being wrecked somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Now thing about a ship that sets off to a voyage KNOWING where its going. It would leave the shore, sails for whatever amount of time it takes to reach there... and more than likely, reach its destination successfully. Long term and short term goals: An example of a long term goal would be "making $10,000 by the end of this year" Now to achieve that you need to devise a plan... and in comes short term goals. To make 10000 by December 31st you need to know what you're going to do every month, and to achieve that monthly good, you have to plan your stuff on weekly or even daily basis. So... grab a pen and a paper, set a long term goal for yourself... then set multiple short term goals to achieve that long term goal. Work systematically, don't be like that man who wakes up every day not being sure what he wants to do that day. Anyway those were just a few random thoughts that popped into my mind. Back to work!
