Becoming a Goal Sniper! The 21 Day Self Discipline Challenge!

71 replies
Hey Guys!

I was quite a disciplined guy! But these days, I am not doing what I need to do! That's why I started this thread!

I am going to do the following things for the next 21 days, consistently! And I am gonna log my progress every day in this thread.

Now, these are the things I am gonna do for the rest of my life -

  • Wake up @ 5 a.m.
  • Do exercise for 30 minutes
  • Do something to increase my internet empire for at least 2 hours (includes taking 1 of my site to the page-1, rank-1 of Google!)
  • Give more attention to my studies, and study for at least 5 hours
  • Do a "2 minute concentration practice". It's done by looking at an analog clock's "second counting dial" for 2 minutes without thinking anything else! Very powerful for giving concentration. 10 times a day.
  • Meditate for a total of 1 hour. 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes @ night.
There is a saying that, it takes 21 days to form a habit. Though, I know that I shouldn't go after more than 1 goal! But I did all these even before a month! So, no new thing here! I just want to make sure that I do these every single day!

Now you may ask me why I am doing this! There are other platforms such as 43things.com! The thing is, I love the WF community. Every member here are very helpful. It will give me great pressure to do all things accordingly.

All these will be started tomorrow. This journal will be ended on 22nd September.

If you want to learn the top level SEO secrets of a 17 year old, I suggest you to subscribe to this thread
(see the 3rd point)

Wish me luck guys!!

      I agree. You have to be careful when setting goals. You don't want to have a negative association with the word goal by putting too much on yourself. I myself like to take on small goals that I know are achievable. Like posting 5 times in the warrior forum in the morning and then 5 times at night. That isn't too hard. For the other goals which place a higher demand on myself, like creating a quality video(s), I usually give up something for the day like TV since I know it will be a distraction. Always remember the law of sacrifice comes into play when you want to achieve goals. Hope this post was helpful to you...

        You're right! I admit that I am giving myself too much pressure! But..have no choice! I have seen myself in the past when anyone could break me easily by putting much pressure on me! Now. I have only 3 words for that kind of guys - "Bring it on"!

          Well I wish you the best of luck with your goal setting, just try not to stress yourself out too much or anything and always remember to have fun. When I was goal setting for big goals, I literally cut out everything that was even remotely close to fun and I just don't want you to go on a mental trip like myself, but I'm happy you're sharing your inspirational passion in the warrior forum and are focused on getting what you want. Keep it up pal

    The concentration practice and meditation by themselves will drastically improve your life! A calm, still mind will give you the clarity to see opportunities that you would have missed otherwise. Also, what good is all the money in the world without the sound mind to enjoy what you have?

    I will join you on those two goals and will be interested to see your results in the next 21 days.

    Day - 1:

    • Waked up @ 6 a.m.! Probably my alarm clock wrung for about an hour!!
    • Did exercise for 30 minutes
    • Wrote 1 article for my affiliate website. The one I am trying to rank high.
    • Studied for approximately 4 hours
    • Did "2 minute concentration practice" 6 times
    • Meditated for 1 hour. 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes at night.
    What I did wrong:

    It was just the next day after the biggest event of Eid! I was overloaded with food! That's the only reason!


    About my affiliate website:

    Over the next few days I am going to do the hardest part of SEO - account creation! The most boring task of this world

    I will create accounts on the following web 2.0 sites -
    blog.com
    blog.co.uk
    blogdrive.com
    blogetery.com
    bloghi.com
    blogger.com
    bloggerteam.com
    blogsome.com
    blogster.com
    blogstream.com
    blogtext.org
    hubpages.com
    insanejournal.com
    inube.com
    jimdo.com
    livejournal.com
    tumblr.com
    wetpaint.com
    wikidot.com
    wikispaces.com
    wordpress.com

    I will use TOR for less footprints. All these will be hand built.

    So far so good!

    Day - 3:

    • Waked up @ 8 a.m.
    • Didn't exercise
    • My affiliate site -
    1. Wrote 1 article
    2. Created 15 forum profiles from Paul's packet (Jan-Feb '11). A little old packet!! I bought it when I was using Paypal (Ah, those were the days. I verified it through vcc, but Paypal somehow found it :confused. Bangladesh didn't accept Paypal till now! Though the Government of Bangladesh approved Paypal recently, but it may take another 3-6 months for paypal to start their service in Bangladesh.
    3. My target is to create a linkwheel with these forum profiles. I will make a linkwheel of 50 forum profiles. Each will have 3 links. 1 link pointing to the money site, 1 to the previous profile, and 1 to the next profile.
    4. Spun 1 article and uploaded to Scribd.
    5. Pinged all url's through Pingler.
    • Studied for 4 hours
    • Did "2 minute concentration practice" 9 times
    • Meditated for 30 minutes
    What I did wrong:

    There is a saying that, "morning shows the day". I guess it happened with me! My alarm clock didn't ring for some unknown reason! I will my father's phone as an alarm clock tomorrow.

    Totally unsatisfied with my progress

    Let's hope for the very best in the next 18 days

    Tip of the day:

    If you are struggling to wake up on time, place your alarm clock at a distant place. So that you have to walk towards it to stop the alarm.

    Keep at it, man!

    The only way to fail is to give up.

    Try to give yourself a rest day, too.

    If you're struggling to wake up at 5 AM, I think that's fairly understandable try going to bed earlier as well. I find that if I get 9 hours of sleep, I can jump out of bed and get immediately started on what I need to do.

    Cheers!

    • Growing my internet empire -

    3. Created another 15 forum profile.
    Tip of the day:

    What? You got up from the bed, walked towards your alarm clock, stopped it, and again came back to bed and slept for hours?
    When you're in this kind of situation, just do as I say - stop breathing! Yes, you heard me! When you stop breathing, your body parts will send message to brain - "Fight or Flight"! It'll take only a couple of seconds, and you'll be fully conscious!! Your eyes will be wide open and that sleepomania will be gone!
    Alert: If you can't hold your breath longer, don't force yourself! I don't want to see you dead

    I am soooo tired:rolleyes:

    3. Funneled all links through Twitterfeed and ping.fm. I will show you next day how I funneled the links to get them indexed!
    Why I was absent for 2 days:
    I was feeling pain in my left hand, but just didn't care! Now, I am paying for it! It's a muscle injury. I held my left hand in a sling for 2 days. The doc said, I won't be able to exercise for 1 week! I can understand that! I can't even lift a book with my left hand

      Find something you enjoy doing and figure out a way to get paid for it. Then you can start outsourcing boring tasks. You can do it bro, all you have to do is just focus on what you like. Also, there's a tool called the focus booster that you can download for free and it helped me pull through certain things I didn't like doing. Hope that helps you out some...

      This is something I've never heard before. The only time I would set my alarm clock for 5am is if I wanted to get up 11am.

      My 2c worth:
      Don't set hard goals. You're beating yourself up for nothing man. They only make you feel bad when you don't achieve them and there's no way to achieve the important today so why remind yourself of what you're not doing or don't have? Instead try creating aims, directions and mile markers and here's the most important tip... remove the dates! Replace all dats with A.S.A.P.! Works for me and people I suggest it to. You think you'll get less done but the opposite happens. 5am is not a time that any human should be doing anything but sleeping or coming home. JK.

    You are doing great! I actually will be doing the 2 minute concentrations too because of this posting. I will also be creating small goals so I can achieve them.

    Remember to take a break and have fun with it. You are supposed to do it to make money and because you like it. With that said, I think that you telling us about it is really awesome and I am enjoying reading about what you are doing each day and I'm happy your hand is better

    • Woke up @ 5 a.m.
    • Did exercise for 30 minutes
    • Did "2 minute concentration practice" 7 times.
    • Meditated for 1 hour.
    • Studied for 5 hours.
    • Growing my internet empire -
    1. Commented on 10 high page rank blogs.
    2. Submitted my website to Social Monkee, IMautomator, 247backlinks.
    3. Created 4 new Web 2.0 properties - Ezine Articles, Webs, Helium, Terapad.
    Why I didn't post last night:
    I was soooo tired that I couldn't assist myself towards my computer! Sorry guys!

    Tip of The Day:
    If you are a newbie Internet Marketer, please finish your studies first! Though it's not necessary to achieve those so-called degrees, even I won't never use those hard earned degrees of mine! The fact is, you and I, both don't know what will happen in the future! That's why, it's good to have a backup for bad times!

    Cheers.

    Wow, I'm getting tired just reading about all you're doing everyday. Great way to accomplish what you want by having yourself held accountable though. That does seem like a lot to accomplish everyday but nothing wrong with aiming high, and it seems to be working for you. It's also great motivation for everyone else, especially me, to maybe ramp it up a bit.

    When you meditate in the morning just after waking up, don't you just fall back to sleep? Especially when you get up at 5?

    Just recovered from high fever! Started the challenge again from today!

    Day - 11:
    • Woke up @ 5 a.m.
    • Did exercise for 30 minutes.
    • Did "2 minute concentration practice" 5 times.
    • Studied for 4 hours.
    • Growing my internet empire -
    1. Just got a great idea of a service. I am back in freelancing and want to make $1000 by providing services. I want to spend all of them on creating new affiliate minisites and ranking them to page 1 of Google.
    Movie Pick:
    "Source Code". Though it's a movie based on quantum physics and all that. But it carries a very important moral which reflects in our life often! Which is - Whenever we go through bad times in our life, we always expect someone to come to us and say - "Everything's gonna be okay".
    I went through veeerrryyyy bad things in my life. But no one said that to me.

    Have a great day

      This is why everyone should strive to be that person that when you see someone down and in need just take a few mins and listen to them. Tell them it will be ok and offer suggestions to help it be better.

      I wish in my personal life i had someone to do that.

    • Woke up @ 5 a.m.
    • Did exercise for 30 minutes
    • Studied for 6 hours
    • Did "2 minute concentration practice" 8 times
    • Didn't meditate
    • Growing my internet empire -
    1. As I want to start freelancing again, but don't have Paypal, I signed-up with 2CheckOut. They cost a non-refundable $49 for just signing-up!!!
    2. Tweaked my business site (the site from where I intend to sell my services).
    3. I am a little worried, 'cause I never did this kind of services before. Though I am only providing with which I saw real results!
    Tip of the day:
    Pray! If we see any object even on the moon, like...some kind of a box (!) we'll definitely agree that somebody must have created it! The same goes for us! There IS a creator. Who is listening to every single bit of our heart, watching us taking every good step, watching us taking every bad step, watching us fall, helping us to get up. The list goes on and on!

    Eat, pray, love

    The Biggest Challenge I Have Faced:

    I took a break for 1 day. I woke up in the morning, and found myself totally broken! Looked like, I have lost interest in every single thing of my life! I watched a movie, read my favorite thrillers, and spent more time with my family and did nothing else.

    It was truly breathtaking. Probably it was the result of the constant pressure I am putting on myself!

      I know this feeling too well. You decide to work hard on reaching your goals but along the way you start to doubt yourself and if what you're doing is really what is necessary for success. That's why, from time to time, you need a day off and also you need to step away from the day to day routines and think really hard at where you are and where you are going and how you are going to get there!

    Don't feel too bad about taking a break once in a while. After grinding ourselves down daily sometimes a short break is all we need to get going again with full force!

    Very good...I like the fact that you realize that you must take control of yourself & get back on track. Equally important, that you knew what to do...you were ahead of the game. I believe when you are "success" oriented, knowing your goals & putting them to a daily time-table & completing all of them by the end of the day & not going to bed until they are accomplished, keeps you moving closer to your destination. Daily distractions are always there to derail you but face it, fight it & conquer it & get back on track...must finish by the end of the day, for tomorrow is a new day with new challedges.
    "Success" is a definitely a plan.

    2nd June, 1995-Present time: What I have learned

    1. The no.1 rule when it comes to self improvement - Never Blame Yourself! You made a routing and can't follow it properly. Every night you go to bed with a thought that, I am a big loser! No buddy, that won't help! It will put on much more pressure on you, and believe me, you will be totally broken in no time! You have tried, that's the main thing! Remember the K.I.S.S factor?


    2. Writing down your goals does help! But only then, when you'll keep the note somewhere you can easily see! Keeping your written goals in your drawer won't help you at all! I generally stick my To Do notes on my book shelf! I can easily see it whenever I enter my room!


    3. Listen to what other say! It's not true that you will be always right! It's not true either that everyone else will be always right! You just keep what helps you, you through away what doesn't help you! Enough said!


    4. Being lazy, is a horrible thing, period! Don't go with those convincing sales letters of Dan Brock (remember "Deadbeat Millionaire"?). If you're lazy, or you want to earn money/automate your business just for the sake of waking up late in the morning......There's no herm in being your own boss. But...don't be lazy. Get up and create new goals, which you work on!


    5. I constantly hear people saying "I want to do something in/with my life"! Another horrible thing! "I will do it/that/this" is way better than "I will do something". Find what you're passionate about! And stick with it!


    6. Academic degrees does help! Though, here in Bangladesh, education is now a big business, people are opening schools/colleges/universities and charging high fees! Students are competing with each other to become the very best student of their class! Now, that's sick! There's no doubt that I won't use my so-called degrees in any means. I know it very well that the way I am going on, there will be no financial problems in my life! But just for the sake of keeping a back-up, and most of all, for the sake of my parents, I am going on and competing with those so-called 'First' and 'Last' thing, in terms of results!


    7. Decrease your sleeping time. It will help you big time! We can do a lot if we wake up early in the morning!


    8. There's no doubt that, it's tough to make moeny online! You need only two things to become successful online - Patience and Knowledge! If you are a newbie and want to make money online, please learn the following -
    HTML (Basic)
    WordPress (Basic)
    SEO (Basic>Intermediate>Advanced)
    Most of all, internet is the only thing you need to earn knowledge!


    9. Do meditation. It calms your mind, resulting into greater productivity! If you don't know how to do it, at least try some Binaural Beats. Google it if you don't know what it is.


    10. Every week, read at least one book! It can be a Nobel winner, it can be a well renowned thriller (though I don't recomment Harold Robbins


    11. Do everything you can to increase your productivity! You must learn the following -
    Concentration
    Speed Reading
    Faster typing (at least 40 WPM)
    Here's a great plug-in to prevent you from getting distructed with those social networks!

    I left all social networks in no time! When I found out that this social networking thing was eating up too much of my time! Though I don't recommend at all, that you must also leave social networking. Connecting with various people is a great thing. But, know your limits!


    12. Spend time with your parents. I hate it, when I see, after passing teenage, people leave their parents and starts living on their own! That's the time when your parents are becoming lonely! And that's the time when they need you the most! We can never give back what they did for us, it's a universal truth! But at least, we can try!


    13. Smile. It's the music of the soul! If you live in the US or somewhere else in the west, there should be some kind of Laughter Club! Don't hesitate, join it!

    Wrote for a long time! Time to get back to work

    Oh, and...one more thing, Live Your Life.
