Monday Tip – Follow The Money Not The Dream

Change Dreams to GoalsFirstly thank you to everyone who sent me birthday wishes, I had a superb weekend and possibly the best party ever, I am proud to say that I was the last man standing!

So now back to work and time to refocus on business.

Dreams Or Goals

In my  book  “I Can”  (available on Amazon OR for FREE if you subscribe to the blog updates!) I talk about taking your dreams and turning them into goals as once you have a goal you have something you can focus on. For example if one of my dreams was to visit the great barrier reef in Australia as a dream it would be just that, a simple idea that I want to visit the Great Barrier reef BUT if I turn that into a goal I can really focus on making that happen.

Goal: To visit the Great Barrier Reef.

Time required 15 days: – No problem there all I need is Wifi and an iPad to work

Cost:

Flights,  €1300

Accommodation: €630 (airbnb rainforest home..nice!)

Spending Money €2000

Therefore If I can earn and save €3930 ($4966) I can now achieve my Goal I know exactly what I need to do and I can now come up with a plan.

So now instead of having a desire to go to the great barrier reef I have the basis of an achievable plan,  I need to find a way to make just short of €4000, It’s now down to me to work out a way of doing this within the time span I am going to set.

I would recommend that you set a realistic but relatively short time span, don’t set it to years set it to 6 month’s or less.

So now I have to work out how to create that income…

Adsense – too slow and too unreliable

Product creation – Possible , but will need JV partners

Providing a service – 800 articles would probably do it,  at 10 a day thats going to be 3 months or so

Building and flipping sites – Possible but will need 50 or more sites so will need to look at outsourcing…

…And so on work your way through the options and then choose 1 or 2 or 3 of the options that are achievable and realistic.

Success Is Attainable

I decided to write this post today after reading a couple of blog posts in the Forum, Rita mentioned that her son had set up a lemonade stand outside of their house and had made $40 , Keith also posted that he had success with his first kindle book and had made almost $300 from it so far both these were down to people actually taking action and doing something.

I know that some people do struggle to make money online BUT in reality i suspect that a lot of that is down to a lack of focus, everyone I’ve met online who has made money consistently has been incredibly focused and dedicated, they’ve not let things distract them.  Checkout the blog posts from one of my regular commenters on the site Mike From Maine he has documented the process he’s gone through to make an income online.

I would suggest starting from the beginning of the blog and working your way forward , while doing that ask yourself one question:

“At What Point Would I have Given Up?”

I believe that June was a particularly good month and really justifies the effort Mike put in so watch out for that update.

The point I really want to get across is to think closely about how you want to make money online and then focus on that and stick to it until you are either a success or you know that you have given it as much as you can.

The Key is to know that there is  not one more thing you could have done to make that business sucessful, did you contact everyone you could have contacted, did you really build enough back links or do enough Press releases… did you really give it 100%?

Only you’ll know!

And Finally…

It’s time to try something different, as you know I love to test things and come up with new Ideas that will hopefully help to get my name out there, so here is something I dreamt up over the weekend..
