Interestingly, I don’t recall anyone really challenging me on that. (Except my mother, who told me to forget it as I’d never make any money! But that’s a different story) Nobody asked me, “So exactly what kind of pictures do you want to draw?” or, more importantly, “How good do you want to be?”
If I’d been asked that second question and I’d really thought about the answer, who knows what I could’ve achieved with my art. But that question was never asked. I drifted into and out of art school and didn’t do anything with it (my mother was right). I never focused my ambition and my dream to draw pictures was exactly that, a dream, an unfulfilled wish.
What if I’d told myself that I wanted to be the best – not simply the best I could be, but the best. Maybe I wouldn’t have made it, maybe I would’ve been disappointed with my skill level and maybe I would have been blown out of the water by the competition. But as I didn’t try, I’ll never know.
So, my question to you is:
How good do you want to be at Internet Marketing?
It’s easy to simply be who you are right now – just go on doing the things you already do. But if you set yourself a target to be the best, the best in your niche, the best on this forum, the gurus of gurus… well, I wonder how far you’ll get?
I’m a great believer in setting goals that stretch me. I really fight against the old adage that goals must be realistic. I find that too limiting. There’s nothing wrong with thinking big. Ordinary people do amazing things everyday – there’s no reason why you or I can’t be one of those people.
