My Best Month Ever! Woohoo...

by Monika Mundell 65 replies
Hi Warriors,

I wanted to share my joy with you to show you that it is possible to work a plan and make that plan come to fruition. I have experienced my best every month to-date and January hasn't even come to a close.

I actually reached my income target on the 26th this month and am still going strong for an absolute whopper of a month.

Here is the thing:

My continuous success hasn't come by accident. In fact, I have worked diligently to improve my income month by month. For the past 5 months I have seen amazing growth in my business, mainly thanks to a membership course of a fellow forum member and of course my dedication to my business.

At the beginning of January I set myself a goal of reaching a new income level this month and I'm happy to say that I've actually gone over by $1,865 and counting. All in all I estimate that the December-January growth reflects more than 26%. Once the month comes to a close I will know in more detail.

The reason I'm posting here is to show you that you CAN achieve your goals if you work to your plan and stick with it. Remember, a journey is made of thousands of single steps.

Focus on one step at the time and you will see great results.

I also believe that when you put things out into the Ether they come back to you tenfold. Your success starts in your head - the rest is history.

I wish you success and thank you for taking the time to stop by.

Monika

    Well done. I love reading stories such as this - I'm still working out what my next step is going to be into the world of internet marketing but to know that there may well be light at the end of the tunnel is very reassuring.

      Hi Vijay,

      Thank you for the encouragement. I had some really strong months in the last four or so months and grew my business every time about 5-10%.

      Then come the beginning of the year I thought, what the heck, I can do BETTER than that and so I did. I guess it was a mental thing because I now know with absolute certainty that if you attach your mind to a specific goal the results will follow.

      In practice this resulted in aiming for loftier goals and working hard to stay on track. It worked.

      Regards
      Monika

      Hi Nathan,

      Yes I am certain it will. I believe success starts in your head. Unless you are 100% confident you can do this you won't. I do get my down days like everyone else. Funny enough, whenever I get a negative streak (which luckily doesn't happen too often) things take a turn for the worse - orders stall, clients take forever to decide, etc.

      Usually I sulk for a couple of days until I pull myself together again and when I do business experiences yet another growth.

      I just refused to be negative this month and look what happened.
      Take care
      Monika

        Monika,

        how do you actually pick yourself up though? I'm nowhere near the stage that you are yet but I still get those bad days and sometimes it's hard to pull myself out of it.

          Hello JayJay,

          You asked me a very important question and one that is hard to answer. Believe me, when I'm stuck in my own $hit hole, the last thing I want to do is smile or get out of it - on those days I just want to stick my head in the sand (or bed) and never wake up.

          Unfortunately it wouldn't work and I know my alternatives - having to go back to a job I hated, working for a boss who didn't care about his employees. When I made this business work for me after having bumbled about for a few years in MLM I KNEW that this was my last resort - now that I've achieved more than I ever dared to dream about when I started this business I have no desire to ever go back to where I was.

          Therefore, I just keep going. Admittedly it does get easier as your business grows because you KNOW from experience that you can pull this off. The self-doubts become smaller and your conviction about your abilities become stronger every single day.

          I'm not sure if this helps. We are all different and driven by our own experiences and desires. If your desire becomes urgent enough you too will find yourself taking action - even if you might not feel like it at the time.

          All the best
          Monika

        Monika,
        My Sincerest Congratulations on a breakthrough that few people truly allow themselves to enjoy...and understand.

        I started my professional career as a hypnotherapist working with phobias and smoke cessation and a variety of other challenges that have their origin in the mind. Your words, "I believe success starts in your head" is a direct connection to the foundation and cure of the collective challenges we humans face.

        What you have demonstrated is that you've set your goal and taken the step of controlling/limiting the amount of focus given to negative thoughts. That simple and complex step is the closest we can come to experiencing lasting, unstoppable and long term success in our pursuits.

        Hold on to that process of thinking because it will allow you to dominate whatever niche, project or lifestyle goal that you decide to pursue.

        Thank you very much for being generous enough to share the story of your progress. You have set off a type of tidal wave that is already reaching across the shores and doing what all ideas do....especially the positive ideas

        Bon Chance,
        Alex

I really want to make a go of it so I can leave here but know I can live in a stable way, I guess I just need to think about what the alternative is if I don't work hard at it, that should get me through.

      Hi JayJay,

          Hello Liam,

          Woohoo, congrats to you buddy. That makes three of us (one of my best online buddies has also had a whopper month with his niche sites). It just goes to show that whatever you do, you can become successful beyond your wildest dream if you follow through.

          I'm so happy for you - doesn't it feel great?

    This is a great, positive thread. I love what you say about just trying to smile and carry on when you get into those 'down' moments. This is something I'm really coming to learn. Being self employed is really such a huge lesson in accountability, not just for money but for the way you work and the way you need to learn to encourage yourself. I'm glad to see it paid off for you

      Good for you! It's always nice to see someone who has been rewarded for their hard work. I'm sure this will provide inspiration for those who might be a little "lost" which is always a great thing. All of what you've said is true though. It's all about putting your plans into practice and sticking with them. Your own mindset really is a huge part in determining whether or not you will succeed.

      Hello Ruth,

      I see the Poms are out in force today (or yesterday). Thank you for stopping by to comment. I really appreciate it.

      You certainly hit the nail on the head with the accountability comment. No one is going to do the work for you when you run your own business. The thing is, they don't teach us in school who to think like an entrepreneur and like a manager (as Michael E. Gerber teaches us in the E-Myth books). Instead we think like technicians because that's what we are taught to be from kindergarden age onwards.

      It really is no wonder so many people fail in their ventures. Sigh... I could go on and on but am afraid I would just ramble on indefinitely...

      It's good to see that you are starting to see things from a different perspective. If you haven't already read it, I strongly suggest you read the book mentioned above. A total mind opener to say the least and must-read for any self-employed person.

      Take care
      Monika

        You are so right - even without needing to learn the various aspects of the tasks you need to do to make money, that in itself is a *huge* learning curve.

        I've heard a lot about this book and it's on my list of what to read - thanks for the recommendation.

    Congratulations Monika! It sounds so cliche, and I know people have their eyes glaze over when they see it, but, it really does take someone self-motivated to keep going and to increase their efforts to reap the rewards over time. It is absolutely the hardest at the beginning putting in all the work before you see anything, but if you continue to work you will learn and eventually it will all pay off in the end.
