For a long time I waved that off as hogwash. Rubbish I thought.
Then one day a few months back I decided what the heck, and I made a quick desktop background that had some desirable images (mostly travel locations that I want to visit) and a big banner in the middle saying "$500/day by December 31 2009".
Well today I have reached that goal. At 2pm my profits for today are $505 and the day isn't over yet.
It wasn't achieved over night. My income has been increasing day by day. Every $50 increase was a new milestone.
I'm not the type to believe that my desktop background has led to my success but I tell you, seeing that same old boring desktop every time I boot up my computer made me see $500 as not a lot of money and something I would achieve.
I probably won't earn $500 everyday but anything over $300 is pretty darn good in my book.
I'll be changing my background now to $800/day by December 31 2009 - I'll need to add a few more revenue streams to consistently see that sort of money coming in.
So write down your financial goal, put it somewhere visible and glance at it everyday. And don't be afraid to aim high.. I can live on $100/day but why settle for that when there's so many opportunities out there in the wonderful world of affiliate marketing.
Just a bit of motivation for the people struggling as I've read a few "down and out" threads here lately. Don't give up!
