Default How To Make 2014 Your Best Year Ever

Everyone is gearing up for 2014 and most already have plans and goals written out that they want to achieve.

I thought of sharing some tips that can make 2014 far greater in terms of success,results and accomplishments than 2013.

1. Focus: Focus is everything, especially for those who are just starting out. This is not the time to own 50 niche sites that you are trying to rank all at once. Scattered energies produces scattered businesses.

Start with 1 or 2 and throw in all your energy on ranking those two and when you see encouraging results from them, you can then replicate in into other projects

2.Crazy work-ethic : This doesn't mean you have to work 24hrs a day non-stop but you have to put in the required work. You have to work more than you learn, you have to work. Every successful marketer you see here put in a considerable amount of time in their business.

One other thing to avoid is the "Ever learning syndrome". This happens to everyone at one time or the other.

We keep looking for "new"ways to drive traffic to our website, "new methods" of making money online,"new ways of doing this and that". This will only lead to information over-load that will keep you stuck at the same point.

Never buy a product except you really need it.e,g: In as much as I look forward to making money by selling amazon products it is not my present focus. So no matter how great a sales copy is on how to make money from amazon I wont purchase the product. I would rather put in the money into my current business and scale it higher

3.Relationship with others: I hope to do more of this in 2014 like-wise. Go out and meet like-minded people. Relationships are everything.

So these are my tips on making 2014 a great year. What about you?

Some IM just spend 30 mins or 1 hours

that it and watch money bank in...

perhaps they already success? just do the minor work


for me...it seem like whenever I free...I will always in front my com..search , etc

about IM...

blog , post some new stuffs etc...

headache ..and scout ways to get traffic but still...

still a lot to learn ...even my parents two days back ...lecture me....
better go to sleep ....your eyes is more important....whole day glue to the screen....

IM should make us spend quality time with family...

but in return is it seem..nope..unless you already successful...


2014 I just want concentrate on amazon..perhaps some of you can recommend a good stable program like amazon....

Focus, work hard and developing relationshisp is a good place to start, but I'd like to add one more step for success: whatever your doing, strive for providing the very best service to your customers or readers.

BTW, I've always liked that quote, "the harder I work, the luckier I am." It seems to fit this idea.

Great thread!
Personally, as one who sells physical products, I want to focus on 3 things in 2014

1. Have EVERYTHING fulfilled by Amazon meaning I can work from anywhere with just a laptop

2. Build more brands (private labeling is becoming the fastest growing part of my business)

3. Hit clearance sales hard to get inventory in for the next holiday season. Sept-Dec are my biggest months. The more inventory I've acquired throughout the year, the better these months are. I intend to make these months the focus of the year. This will allow me to actually have a nice summer break

Hi Kenneth,

All work for me Good tips!

Relationships are huge. We can do so much by ourselves but by meeting people and making friends we can enter into prospering partnerships.

Much of my success has depended on the kindness of others. People who have shown me the way, designed my blog, promoted me.

I feel deeply grateful to have built prospering relationships and look forward to doing so more each day.

Thanks for sharing!

Live the internet lifestyle at Cash With A True Conscience.

If you're waiting until New Year to start, you don't have the mindset needed yet.

While you spend time reading people's signatures on a forum someone else is working to make the money you could have made.

The most important thing is always to keep focus on your plans, but more important is that your plans and dreams should be realistic. Make proper plans and then put your full effort.

Sometime before New Year's Day 2014 ...

1.) Watch Earl Nightingale's 'The Strangest Secret':


2.) Watch Napoleon Hill's 'The Mastermind Principle':


Just do it! Make this next year your best!

Create a list of how really bad you want to make it online, with pros and cons included and will this drive you to achieve the results you really want!
Clear mindset is key to your success that is for sure!

Completely agree. As an add/on I would include follow-through with commitments!! Relationships can turn bad real fast if you don't do what you say you're going to do!

Love this thread! My greatest success this year has been two words "Be Fearless" and I have had to say that about once an hour on some days when all did not go smoothly! Plus, I have had the awesome benefit and blessing of a good Mentor or Coach that made all the difference for me. Masterminding with people ALREADY successful is HUGE and we can all cheer the person a bit ahead of us on the road to success and pull the hand of the one a little bit behind us. After all, at the end of this life, only what we have done for others will be left behind. Here's to a wonderful 2014 for all of us here on the WF! Here! Here! Kristie Chiles from Georgia

Love the Strangest Secret video. Wish I could live my life according to those thoughts, but I never do.

Goal for 2014 is to work hard, be myself, offer value, and stop getting caught up in things that do not take me towards my goal. If I do that the rest will follow.

Systems always work... people fail.

Failing is actually a good thing. Learn as quick as you can then IMPLEMENT.

List building still remains very important for online business success.

Dont give up too easily, be consistent and don't be afraid to try and get known in the market.

awesome points.

I know lots of people say, do not build your list, or list building and solo ads do not work anymore. bullchit!

I can say in all my years doing IM, and changed in gmail and spam and all the rest, 2013 was huge for us, and email marketing continues to be absolutly by far the best way to make money in 2013.

Email marketing, facebook, and listbuilding will continue to be our 6 figure focus for next year, like it has been for this year.

WHY? google goes down, slaps you, or you lose your website, or get banned or some other than all this above happens, you still have your list. Its simple.

Too many times, people say a list does not work, yes it does, if done properly and I just explained why it is a stable business also. Have a list of prospect you can access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for me is like having an ATM in your back pocket.

So far I have laid out my product development plan for the greater part of 2014 as well as allocation of my advertising budget. All subject to change of course but it's great to have them on paper going forwards.

Build relationships and take action!.. You can be a lone wolf if you want to.. But if you build a "team".. (like everyone has different areas of skills related to the same goal).. Everyone is held accountable so it forces you to take action and not procrastinate..

Hi michael,

people fail one time, then instead of focusing on their mistakes and IMPLEMENT the right methods, they just prefer to go everywhere and spread false statements like the one you cited. Its pretty simple. Actually its a vicious circle.

How many times you heard that something "is dead"?

At the end of the day it comes down to the fact that you give up too easily and dont even bother to follow a plan to succeed and totally forget about consistency.

You might not believe this but from my studies in marketing and psychology most people really LOVE running in circles.

Exactly. But instead of focusing on what didnt work and IMPLEMENT what works, they simply state opinions and own beliefs as facts and spread em like "undeniable truths" to others. Its so much easier to do that instead of put some hard work to build a profitable business.

I love threads like these, they do make me a little sad though.

The amount of people saying hope and dream and maybe and could be is just staggering.

To quote Master Yoda "Do. Or Do Not. There is no try."

Like you say Kenneth, it requires focus and energy. Strict Work Ethics like any other undertaking!

And to be honest, this year is far from done. Dont sit back and relax just yet guys, there is still time for another product launch, another sale, another sales funnel!

Yep, keep your goals concise. If something isn't working don't give up. Most internet marketers leave internet marketing not because they fail, because they don't wait long enough to see their success.
