We all have dreams and desires but if we do not know how to go about achieveing them they are nothing but pipedreams. But with a clear plan in mind one can turn pipe dreams of today into reality of tommorow. In life, we need reasons for what we do. Goals keep us from just reacting to what's going on around us. Goals can inspire and motivate. They help us make our life happen rather than letting it happen. Most of all, Goals produce results.
There are three main points to goal setting:
1. Clarifying your unique goal 2. Reinforcing your goal 3. Tracking, Measuring and assessing progress
In this article we will look at each one of these steps and access how they work. All around us internet is changing. Because of so called recessison, everyone is starting to charge for what once was free for taking. Every site had free stuff. Some still do, but, for example, I had a free list a Listbot and now they are charging. I was quite happy with my site and thought about staying with them even if they charged. However my small ezine is not in a financial postion to pay prices that Listbot will charge.
So what to do? Why are people charging for everything that was free? The media tells us that stocks for dot.com's are down. All around us dot.com's are failing. So if this little ezine was to survive I needed to get a really good map of where I was going.
Well, I am a person who dreams impossible dream -- always have and always will. I have been told since I was a child that I was a dreamer. Well I am, and as I said, will always be but difference between my dreams and some others I talk to is that I accomplish them.
Believeing that I can accomplish anything I set out to do and I deserve success is first step in accomplishing any goal. How did I get this belief in myself? Partly because to my parents I was "apple of their eye." They believed I could do anything including fulfill their unfulfilled dreams. I never did do that but I have fulfilled a lot of my own dreams. So with experience behind me I learned that if I stay focused, I can accomplish impossible dream.
So why should a little recession or other dot.com's going down influence my little ezine? One thing I don't do is listen to media much even though as an ezine owner I am part of that media. I need to stay focused, and that is why I do not listen to negative input from people or media; it just breeds fear and fear never accomplishes anything. So I go apart in my own little world and I dream my impossible dream. If I want to know where I am going I must have a clear picture of where I want to be in next year, five years and beyond that. Life is for living and I intend to live fully until I die.
