    Yeah, by new year's resolution I mean only one because if you have more than one resolution than it'll be pretty hard to stick to your goals.

    Anyways, my resolution is to be mature.

    I admit I was pretty damn immature in 2009.

    Maturity could save me. With maturity comes a good attitude, time management, wisdom, etc. Some people say that maturity is a process that happens whether you like it or not, it doesn't happen overnight. Well, I disagree. The first step is to actually want to become mature, then work towards it and look at your actions and thoughts and think how you can improve yourself.

    My first step was uninstalling all video games. It was a hard step, considering the fact that many of my "characters" had items worth a lot of money, and it took time to build. But, think about it. Video games are anything but positive. Sure, they are "fun," but it's a sacrifice I have to make. Video games got in the way of everything in my life ever since I was in the 5th grade. It would inhibit me from improving my social life, attitude, education, and personally most important, internet marketing. Now that all my games are uninstalled, I can focus more on what really matters in life.

    My second step is to surf BHW less. Well, I've got that down. I've been visiting BHW on a 2-3 day basis, and I only check the CL and affiliate programs sections (and the lounge occasionally). And one of my last posts was made about 10 days ago. That's a start.

    My third step is to develop a solid attitude. Sometimes I'm quite pessimistic, and when I feel down I just give up, not realizing that tons of other people experience life 10x harder than me. I want to realize that I only have one life to live, and not being happy is unacceptable.

    Yes, this is still one new year's resolution even though it looks like three steps, but if I had been mature I would not have a problem with video games, or wasting time surfing BHW, or having a bad attitude. With better time management, I will be making a lot more money, improving my social life, and getting better grades.

    With maturity, I will be able to question what I'm about to do with a "Will this be of any benefit to my life? If not, don't do it!"

    So, what is your new year's resolution?

    To get more professional about everything I do to make money online.

    This means being more organized and businesslike and to start taking positive action to reach my goals every single day.

    Last year I made more money than the last and this year I am going to take it to a whole new level. I made a promise to myself to become a millionaire by 2011 so I had better get cracking.

    Get serious about making money. Although school is really important. I am doing a course called computer programmer analyst and was originally going to be a video game programmer but now I want to make and sell IM products. Anyway my goal right now is to have a million by 2015, so I guess I should try to shoot for 200k by 2011. So in short:

    200k is my new years resolution lol
