    The main problem I see with most people on bhw (even me at times) is that we tend to set our goals too high. There is nothing wrong with setting high goals, if they are achievable, but if that is not possible, a person will usually get discouraged after not achieving their goals. I have been guilty before of giving member false hope by telling them "anything is possible". But truth is, that is not REALLY the case.


    Is it possible to become a millionaire starting from nothing? Yes it is

    Is it possible to become a millionaire within 3 months starting from nothing? Most likely not



    If you want to be successful in IM and even possibly earn your way to "millionaire" status, then you need to follow the formula that I posted here. Follow that formula, and be patient. It will take a while, but you will see your earnings increase, month to month, year to year, until you have reached your goal. It is possible to be very successful, you just have to work for it.


    So, in conclusion, I will create my own quote, that will hopefully one day (after I am long gone) be among the famous quotes :)


    "You can achieve any dream, but you must first separate dream from fantasy"

    Wise Words.

    I just wish more people would really listen what you say and think, because they think they are smarter and ignroe what people with experience say and in the end they realise i should listen to what NFL said or anyone else, and they start from begining if they dont give up already.

    Really nicely said.

    Can i use quote as my signature text ?

    Never you mind.
    Thank you for your excellent advice.

    That is the problem for so many. Setting goals that are currently not realistic and I know many people who have become exasperated from not getting everything NOW. An ex of mine used to be upset over us not having a mortgage, careers and kids yet. When I say " yet " - we were 16 and 17.

    Set realistic goals. And as you achieve each, keep using that success to boost your mindset and climb that ladder!

    Nicely said NFL2011, this is coming from me I am 24 years Old and I've played the money game quite a bit... I learned from experience I couldnt manage my money so much was coming in and I've never had that kind of money before so I would fly everywhere, meet girls rent alot of cars, and not worry about alot of stuff It was a good experience I went through, but I ended up breaking myself. I have a whole new outlook on stuff and what I want to do for this year and I am very excited to see what I am made of :).

    Even better: set goals that you've already accomplished so you'll never have to deal with failure.

    Achievable goals are all about we fixing about our capabilities or our level.. So, If we think we have that much capability then anything will be achievable :)

    If we were going towards the goal, we will get a lot of difficulties, negative thoughts like can or can't, blah blah... In other words, Believe on you that you can attain the goal and you have all the capabilities, Am damn sure you will get succeed in your goal..

    Setting goals is important. You probably know it yourself when setting unrealistic goals
