The Secret To Success For The Coming Year
In this post I will reveal The Secret To Success For The Coming Year. But first, WOW! Can you believe it! – This weekend we hit the 12th month of 2018. I can hardly believe it – what a year!
I started in April 2018 (without a plan) I knew I wanted to launch my a website and earn some money online, really just as a proof of concept and in that respect, it has been a successful year. I earned my first affiliate commission and my first $100 from selling other peoples products. I earnt my first $100 from selling a product I made from scratch. This year I launched 5 websites;
This Website; Plr-Printables.com,
and it is scaling! But I know I could have made a lot more and quicker too if I had a plan. looking back I did everything I know is wrong; launch more than one website at the same time (I did this twice) you will hear many IMs saying not to do this, and I can’t agree with them more, I work a full-time Job too, I have a family and 2 children thinking that you can juggle all thses things and launch more than one business (no matter how small) is just not possible. I chose more than 1 authority platform… I could write a whole blog post about this, and I probably will but one think I realised is that, Planning is The Secret To Success For The Coming Year.
Do you set aside time regularly to plan what you want to do in your business? If it’s not something you currently do, I strongly encourage you to embrace it for the remainder of this year as well as the one coming up. Setting aside time at the end of the year, to plan out what I want to do and more importantly what growth I want to achieve in the coming year has been crucial to my own success. Over the next seven days, I want to share some of what I’ve learned and what I’ve found helpful with you.
Let’s start off by taking a look at why business planning is “the secret” to success. There are a few different factors that come into play here. The first is efficiency. When you go in with a clear plan, you can focus on what’s most important. Instead of spending time trying to figure out what you should be working on, what pieces of the puzzle are missing from your product funnel, or what you need to do to break through to the next income level, you know exactly what needs to come next.
As we’ll explore in a future blog post, with a clear goal in mind and a plan for the year, it becomes easy to walk backwards to create effective and efficient daily to-do lists. Work on what needs to get done each day and you will reach your goals.
Next, setting a big goal for yourself helps you think outside the box. If you don’t believe me, try it. Decide on a big income goal for the coming month. Write it down. Keep it in front of you. Then get to work and start to notice what happens next. You start to think of things that didn’t occur to you before. You come up with creative ways to get more traffic. You decide to run a fun promo that adds dollars to your bank account. The same happens when an important deadline comes up unexpectedly. Think back on that time in college when finals rolled around, or the last time your in-laws told you they would stop by later in the day. You got very creative about studying and cleaning respectively.
Last but not least, let’s talk about the subconscious. So far we’ve been focused on what we are actively doing to make progress by making a plan, setting goals and following through. There’s another dimension to all this and that’s what’s going on in our subconscious mind. While we are busy plowing through our to-do list, cooking dinner for the family, and even sleeping, our subconscious mind is working towards those goals as well.
In short, planning and setting goals is important because it helps you grow faster. That means you end up with more money for yourself and your loved ones while spending less time slaving away at your desk. The Secret To Success For The Coming Year is really that simple.
