What Are Your 2014's Resolutions?

Hello there, fellow warrior!

As the title asks, what are your specific 2014's resolutions?

I will honestly admit, for myself, to you, that I haven't been as productive as I have wanted this year.

Peer- and family-pressure pushes me into getting a "regular" job instead of supporting me with my internet ambitions.

My productive work online have only been translating services through Fiverr and some freelancing jobs besides this.

However, next year, will be like a reboot for me, like pressing the reset-button on the computer with a freshly new-installed operating system for my life.

Most importantly, I will implement new and productive routines that I didn't implement this year, such as the followings:

* 2 Hours Customer Talk - finding ways to find potential customers and talking to them what they want (specific results as this will indicate new niches)

* 1 Hour Content Creation - writing articles, creating videos, recording audios

* 1 Hour Marketing - writing & testing ads, headlines, salesletters, newsletters and landing pages

* 1 Hour Product Creation - creating products for well-researched niches

My goal in 2014 is to have earned at least $100,000 before 31th December of 2014 and have received at least 12 personal e-mails from customers who have purchased and used my products and whose lives have changed as a result of it.

Have made this money will feel good but have made this money by have helped people will feel even better, if you ask me.

So, once again, I ask you; what are YOUR 2014's resolutions?

Take Care & Have An Awesome New Year, Fellow Warrior! / Max "MaxTheMarketer" K.

    Right now, my earnings from IM isn't nearly what it is from a combination of my monthly military obligations and salaried full-time job. Beyond having a contractual obligation to the military, it just doesn't make sense--at this time--to quit my full-time job just yet. In 2014, I'll be simultaneously working on building my online business, while pursuing training/professional development.

    While hopefully wrapping up my Masters (in logistics), I'd also like to finish up my Six Sigma Black Belt training and military Captain's Career Course.

        I told you, I told you.

        But on another note the resolutions I made last year to be more
        focused and methodical didn't work out so I'm repeating them
        this year.

          I intend to pay Claude and Dan Riffle $5000.000 each in up-sells to Co mentor me in my Internet Marketing business.

          I don't have any expectations or resolutions for 2014 but will be worth it for the entertainment value.

          I signed up for the seven dollar trial and they just sent me this video. Looking good so far!

    New Years resolutions are psychologically flawed and are almost always broken.

    You should make an every day resolution to become a better you than you were the day before.

    So with that said, I have none...

      I saw somewhere else on the forum someone said just about exact same thing, it may have been you and I agree.

      My "New Year's Resolutions" are the same daily goal reminders I have on my phone and write down everyday

        A lot of people use that time, in what, to me. is an overly-structured idea of goal setting. I don't see it like that.

        Know what I think? New Years is a milestone which we've pretty much socially agreed on as a time of celebration - of erasing the old outlook and finding a new perspective. We all look forward.

        What I find best for changing perspective is to go somewhere and do something I haven't done before. Screw the goals, the resolutions. Start the year with a completely new experience.

    I don't make "New Year's resolutions." If I need an excuse to resolve to fix something - it's not workin' for me. I do, however, love the New Years - the celebration and the new outlook on everything it seems to provide.

      Exactly. Resolutions DO suck!

      Now, goal setting? That's a different animal. I've had a lot of success setting short term goals in the past, but somehow I completely got away from what I'd learned in years past at the beginning of this year and ended up wasting several months.

      I'm taking some great tips from Jim Edwards (some I already knew and some I didn't) and am getting back on track with realistic short term goals. I really, REALLY needed to fix my broken mindset and Jim has helped a great deal.

      I already have a BIG head start on things and for the first time in the past couple years I'm not dreading going back to work in January.

      Very cool! :-)

    I resolve that, by the end of 2014, I will finally convince Claude that he is nothing more than a figment of his own imagination. The paradox will cause a rip in the space-time continuum which, in turn, will cause Claude to spontaneously combust. The resulting fire will smell somewhat of burnt donuts and gin.

    Then I will retire to my chambers and await the reincarnation of the one who calls himself Claude.

          The truth is, I am imaginary. And you....Dan Riffle...imagined me.

          You were daydreaming one day wondering "What would I be like if I were taller, handsomer, and had the admiration of millions?"...and then you concentrated, veins standing out at your temples...straining....holding your breath...straining harder....

          And out pooped me.

          Hey! Wait a minute! That's not how the story ends!

          But it's the way Riffle imagines it ends. Does that mean I really am a figment of Riffle's imagination?

          Nooooo! I'm real...REAL.....I'm Rea.....

              3 or 4 admirers? It's a dream I've had, for years. I used to pray "God, if only I could have three...no wait...four admirers, I would be happy. As long as I have at least one more admirer than Dan Riffle. That would make me happy. And a ham sandwich...and maybe a Mountain Dew...OK, then I'd be happy".

              And Dan, I may be old, bald, fat, and unattractive...but I more than make up for it by being slow and forgetful.

              I wish you a very good year.

                Not really, l have tried this and tried that, just as long as you give a fair amount of time before trying something else, or reach 99 to 100% compency before doing a runner, so you have a good ideas wether this idea is suitable to your finances, etc!

                As Yoda said...

                Try there is no try, and fear leads to hate, hate leads to more hate, and fear and hate lead to extending your life insurance policy! Something like that! :rolleyes:

      I just wanted you to know that I did not read this post. So there!

      I actually made a list of things that confuse Dan;

      #1...Lists.
      #2...Anything that occurs sequentially, like two or more things on a list.
      #3...Anything written or typed. Like this list.
      #4...Any more than three things on a list. Too much to remember. See #1.

      Yes, I am enjoying myself.

      As official spokesman for the LGBT community, Dan is offended by your remark.

      I however, am above such petty concerns. My New Year's Resolution is to experience Joy. Joy is my next door neighbor that dances in front of a window at night while back lit.

      I went to Lowe's to buy a pair of Binoculars. The checkout girl saw my street on my card, and said "There must be a lot of birds on that street. It seems like every guy is buying binoculars to watch birds."

      This story is all true. I swear. Oh, my other resolution is to stop making up nonsensical stories.

      I can ride unicycles. That was a long time ago that I did that. Why did I learn? There was a circus performer in my neighborhood. I did some performances on it. One involved jumping off a high unicyle into a drum set. Why do you want to learn?

        4. Build the largest vacuum cleaner in the world, for Claude (since he's silly enough to be reading this)
        5. Construct a rowboat with non-functioning oars, actually powered by remote control (to confuse Dan Riffle while he's laughing at Claude over #5)
        Wow, freaky ... that's exactly what I was going to say.

        Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

        That sounds so cool!

        I have no idea why I want to learn to be honest, it just seems so cool to me, the idea of riding a unicycle. It's another skill for me to learn, and another hobby to enjoy really. I'm actually already a fairly competent juggler, so I think learning to ride a unicycle would complement it pretty well xD

    * my main resolution that I made a few years ago is I don't make new years resolutions anymore.

    * if I had to pick one, it would be deleting my facebook account. facebook is a time waster and I make $0 from it. total waste of my time.
