Your 2011 New Year’s Resolutions And Your Online Business

Back in November/December last year, it seemed a good idea to set aggressive business goals, if you’re into the business of creating New Year’s resolutions. You might even have gone aggressive to set something that was 10x what you achieved last year. In motivational/NLP talk, you’d call this a “stretch” goal.

We’re half a month into 2011 and there’s good news and bad news.

The good news is that half your competition, who had set aggressive goals/resolutions, have given up on what they had said they would do. Maybe it was because they woke up the morning after and decided it was too much work. Some might have hit the first bump on the road and given up immediately. So whatever competition you might have foreseen in your niche might have just taken themselves out of the game, 2 weeks off the starting blocks.

Here comes the bad news.

If you’re unlucky, you might be one of those who’ve also dropped out on your plans to step up to the next level. Maybe you’ve decided to settle for the “same-old same-old”.


So the one thing that isn’t taught in any ebook, seminar, course, or $50,000 mentoring/coaching programme is how to kick yourself in the pants to be hungry enough to put in the time and effort to reach the goal you had set for yourself.

Sure, most of us would like to buy that Ferrari, big house, go on a round-the-world trip. But the reality is probably only 1 out of 1,000 marketers are there will actually do it.

The other 999 are probably happy to sit on their butts, dream about what they’d do with the cash, and conveniently forget about putting in effort to get the whole thing moving.


To help your online business prosper and thrive, it needs to be more than just “work”. Ideally it should be something obsessive that drives you to want to keep working till you find the winning formula.

Maybe times it might be a specific website target or keyword for a PPC, PPV or media buy campaign.

It might be a particular cost-per-sale (CPS) or cost-per-action (CPA) that you find is going gangbusters for you.

Whatever it might be, you need to figure it out.

This will likely require having to grind to get yourself there.

Does it mean that everyone who puts in 8 hours of solid work in your online business is guaranteed to succeed?

Not necessarily, but your chances of success are significantly higher.

    New Year’s Resolutions can be so hard to keep. It’s true that in order to succeed online you really need to have that fire and passion to make it work. It takes time, but by implementing different strategies including the ones that you listed above and working hard you should be able to get there.

    Actually, I realized the difficulty of following a plan by yourself when I started my online projects. Since there is nobody who checks what you do, since you don’t have to report to anyone, it is very easy to get distracted and depart from the plan.

    But in time, I was able to force myself to do more to accomplish my goals.

    Having just read your post it has inspired me to write this comment. Over the years I have learnt to set myself effective goals in planning and developing my online business, and I have learnt no to confuse my desires and wishes with my goals. It is very easy to lose sight of the goal you set when your desires and wishes don’t come to fruition. Just writing down your desires is not part of setting goals. Any goal you set yourself in my humble opinion should have one if not most of the following aspects:
    1. They need to be specific – A goal like “ I am going to get more healthy” is too generic how about “ I am going to run 3 times a week in order to lose some weight”
    2. Must be realistic – It’s not that something is impossible; but if it’s unrealistic, it will definitely lead to failure.
    3. Right them down – When they are written down they become more real and it can influence your mind subconsciously and will have a greater impact the more you review them.
    4. Measurable – have a goal on how many pounds you plan on losing? Put a figure to the amount of money you want to make. Keep a picture of that perfect relationship you want to have.
    5. Motivating – Set a goal for the right reason to give it a good start. Goals that are good excite and when you think about and visualise them it turns you on to accomplishing them.
    6. Plans – A good goal become plans take any goal and take positive steps to achieve it.
    7. Deadlines – Give yourself an end date, set a specific date and stick to it.
    8. Personal Factors – You will never succeed if you do not think you deserve it. Good goals also include an element of personal development along the way. After all Personal development is part of the major goal you want to achieve as you grow your business.
    9. Followed by Action – The best way to motivation is to take action toward reaching your goal. You have heard of the saying “Slow and Steady wins the race” so start slow, build and progress.
    10. Stone – Lastly and by no means least; goals are not written in stone they evolve naturally. Learn to be practical when setting your goals – keep your likes and dislikes in mind.

    Remember you can be what you wish to be and do what you want to do!

    Hi there, I do believe your blog could possibly be having
    internet browser compatibility problems. When I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other than that, fantastic blog!

    I’ve been surfing online greater than three hours today, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is pretty price enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    V Belts are used as fan belts, timing belts, alternator belts,
    drive belts for mowers, and general pulley driven devices found in combines,
    mowers, balers, harvesters and other agricultural equipment.
    Of course there are other standard accessories that are specific to
    the expected use of the generator, particularly the larger ones.
