Making Goals

Everyone has dreams.

Do you know what separates dreamers from achievers?


I’m a big fan of Brian Tracy and Tony Robbins. Both of the talk about the importance of making goals.

This is the first step to taking action.

And once you start taking action, your dreams become a reality.

Isn’t that what we want?

Let me share with you an experience I had back in May 2007…

I had just discovered affiliate marketing by accident while trying to promote a MLM business online. I was sick of my job and so I tried it out and was stunned when I made my first profits (it was about $1!).

I set myself a goal: I was going to build up my affiliate marketing business to the point where I could quit my job by my birthday in October! I wrote down my goal and planned out what I was going to do each day to achieve my goal.

Every day I would read aloud my goal and made sure I worked my plan. Come January I had quit my job! What a beautiful day that was.

Okay, I didn’t reach my goal by October but who cares? 🙂

There’s a pattern here that you can follow in any area of your life:

1. Identify a goal you want to achieve and write it down. Be specific with what you want and how soon you want it. Don’t just say, I want to make a lot of money. Instead, say “I want to be earning $5,000 a month in 6 month’s time”.

2. Decide how you will achieve your goal. Are you going to do it with affiliate marketing, email marketing, selling PLR products, etc.

3. Determine what you need to have achieved on a yearly (if your goal is a long one), monthly, weekly and daily basis to achieve your goal. Write down specific actions you need to take daily to be able to make it happen.

4. Each day, read aloud your goal and work your action plan. Make amends as necessary.

If you follow the simple formula outlined above, there isn’t anything you cannot achieve. Making goals is making dreams come true.

  1. Identifying and then working to achieve your goals should be the approach. Try to divide your goals into mini-objectives which should lead you to attain your desired goal.

    Good Luck to anyone who is trying to achieve something in their life.

    Have a fulfilled life,

  2. “Do you know what separates dreamers from achievers? GOALS.”

    Just want to say that I love that line.

    I already know how to set specified goals for myself, but I need to get around breaking it down into small simple steps like you did. It makes the goal seem more attainable and easy to reach rather than just saying “I must be earning $5,000 a month” as a whole.

  3. This is absolutely true – goals can really mean the difference between wanting to do something and actually doing it. I always think that I’m pretty good at setting goals, but judging by how I don’t find myself reaching those goals very often I am starting to think that maybe I’m not that good at it. It’s important to set realistic and specific goals, and maybe put them a little higher than realistic so that you’re always stretching a little harder to reach them.

  4. Goals could be achieved when you put your heart on what your doing. Gather all the resources that you can use and able to utilize those resources to commit your goals. Failure could sometimes happen but those failure can make them your motivation to work hard.

    Thanks for those patterns and it will come in handy for me.
