I know you may not want to hear this but it’s very close to another year finishing and it’s nearly 2010!
What did you achieve in 2009? Everything you wanted to?
Will 2010 be any different for you?
Now is a great time to start reflecting on 2009 and then invest some time on your plans for 2010.
What are you going to achieve in 2010?
Are you going to make it your best year ever?
Soon individuals will be thinking, “2010 is the year for me. I’m going to do something with my life”.
Some will be thinking, “No longer will I be at the beck and call of someone else. I shall start my own business.”
Some will go on to be more precise and say, “I shall start my own on-line business”.
And I applaud everyone who wants to make changes for the better.
So how do you start making changes?
First you need to have a definitive goal. A goal of what you want to achieve.
Three years ago I wanted to leave the 9-5 corporate world. That was my goal. It took me 2.5 years to achieve my on-line business, which enabled me to leave the 9-5 and become my own boss.
Then once you have your goal defined, break the goal down into bite sized tasks.
For instance, if your goal were to have an on-line business, this month you could research on what niche you’d like to enter. Then learn about blogging and get your first blog set up.
Then next month find out about how to monetize your blog and get visitors to your blog.
Then the following month, create your first product.
And so on.
Each morning (or night before) make a list of tasks you’d like to achieve today, all of which take you one step towards your monthly goal.
Not All Tasks Will Be Good
Not all your tasks will move you towards your goal. Some might move you away from achieving your goal but remember you are learning a totally new activity and making mistakes can be good.
Some of the tasks will help you to achieve your goal.
However, no matter what you read on the internet, an on-line business is not just a blog and a product.
There are many who start an on-line business, create a product, have a successful launch and you never hear of them again.
They have a successful product, they make a few joint venture partners, make some sales and they think that’s their business.
That’s not a business. That’s a one time product creation and launch.
An on-line business involves having a customer list you sell multiple products and services to regularly.
You have multiple ways that prospective customers enter your lists and you have multiple items you offer them at different times.
Make 2010 Your Best Ever
Are you going to make 2010 your best year ever?
Share your goals in the comments below for others to see.
I really like this quote from Tony Robbins – “Your goals predict your future”. Most of us fail to set any goals and then wonder why our life hasen’t turned out quite how we expected it to.
I have started to create a book of goals and it is amazing how once you have them written down your sub-conscious goes to work and you find yourself automatically doing things to achieve them.
That’s so true about writing down your goals – it opens the subconscious.
I plan to make 2010 a wonderful year. Online Business is a great way to go. I know that it is the wave of the future.
Most people who try internet stuff, don’t know how to run a business. They want to show up on the internet like it is a hobby and expect business results.
Let’s move into the business owner mindset and make 2010 great!
