Don't Just Sit There!... Do Something!

Written by Michael DeVries

Rather than wait for an "upturn" inrepparttar Internet (and/or general) economy...

Why don't we just work together to create one?! :)

If you don't believe that this is possible...

Then please allow me to share with you a recent and ongoing "story" / "case study" where and how this is happening right now! :) (If on a relatively moderate but significant and growing scale)

A quite renowned Internet Marketer... (whom shall remain "nameless” herein)

... extended a very unique and attractive offer.

Those that could perceiverepparttar 145662 great value of this offer began "scooping it up", even though it was being sold at a non-trivial price.

And even before receivingrepparttar 145663 products they purchased... They were offered a very attractive opportunity to become an Affiliate and market this offer to others.

So, many of those that purchased this offer began marketing and advertising this offer themselves to others, thereby stimulated additional expenditures in online and offline marketing and advertising, which we have all been saying has been kind of "slow" recently, right?

Further, since of these purchasers needed to customize, install and host these products, and they themselves are primarily non-technical, they are engagingrepparttar 145664 services of consultants, developers, web masters and web hosters, etc. to help them.

And when these IT firms / professionals have more paying clients, they in term have to engage more developers, testers, etc. and buy more software, hardware and other services, thereby stimulating more economic activity, in otherwise "slumping" IT and computer markets :), right?

And, this Internet Marketer established a community forum for anyone who purchased this offer to share their ideas about promoting it, implementing it, how to use and sell products based on it, etc. The synergy betweenrepparttar 145665 members of this community is further generating opportunities for partnerships, joint ventures, and members buying, selling and providing products and services to one another.

Setting goals Setting personal and business goals are a must if you want to experiencerepparttar benefit of time management. Setting goals outlines your intentions for what you plan to do and makes it real to you.

Goals are not results! Many people are afraid to set goals because they are afraid of what happens if they "fail" to achieve them. They believe that it negatively affects their self-image.

Nothing could be further fromrepparttar 145661 truth. One ofrepparttar 145662 most positive aspects of setting personal and professional goals is what not achieving a goal teaches you. If you don't achieve a goal, there can be any number of reasons why, some of which are beyond your control. However, examining why it was not achieved will yield valuable insights into your beliefs, attitudes and emotions.

Goal setting and motivation You need to feel desire about your goal. Motivation is desire. Do something because you really want to. You can use allrepparttar 145663 best techniques for goal setting and planning, but ifrepparttar 145664 desire is not there then: You’re less likely to achieverepparttar 145665 goal You feel a sense of emptiness about it if you do

Write your goals down! Write your goals down (or draw, paint them, etc). It helps to make them real where you can see them, rather than swirling about endlessly in your head, where they have no outlet. This will also help to keep you on track. The phrasing of goals is also very important. Phrase them inrepparttar 145666 present, so you can act as if they're already happening. This programs your brain to start working towards it. Use "I am...." instead of "I will...". The latter refers to some indeterminate time inrepparttar 145667 future, which may never happen. The former keeps you firmly focused inrepparttar 145668 here and now, while keepingrepparttar 145669 future in sight. Also remember that just because a goal is written down, doesn't mean that it is set in stone! You are always free to change and modify your goals as your circumstances change.
