Tis the season to say you want to change your life. Now is when diets and work out plans are decided, personality habits will be altered and keeping your room clean is set forth. And you do great….for a week or two but then you crash and burn.
Is it over? For many people they stop and go back to their old ways. What will you do?
Setting goals is a very valuable initiative and is necessary for success especially in the online world of Internet Marketing. Goals will help you take aim, reach platforms and measure success. With out them you are simply shooting in the dark and have no idea what direction you are going nor how well you are doing. So make them. And keep them.
There is one thing I absolutely loathe about New Years Resolutions. It isn’t the setting of goals, it is the setting of goals, failing and then waiting eleven and a half months to start again. If a child did that while learning to walk, he would never learn and if he did, he would be too old to walk.
Just like that good old classic song that everyone knows and hates by Chumbawamba, “I get knocked down, but I get up again. You’re never going to keep me down.”
You will be wasting so much time in every aspect of your life if you wait eleven and a half months to try again. If you mess up, that is fine, that is life. Taking three steps forward and then falling back two is still progress and you can either wait a year to take another three or you can do it immediately. Success is worked at daily. It is falling forward a little bit more than falling backward.
That is just my little resolution spiel and I encourage all of you to make goals for your personal life and for your work and to not give up. Work at it and if and when you fail, get up again. Don’t let the world keep you down.
