Tweaked My Goal

31 Jul

OK, so as I was looking at my goal yesterday and a different one came to me and I am so glad that it did.  It will take a little longer but is far better than the one that I had before. 

I have set the date, I am going with Jan.1st.  Since it is said that you should put a date on it that is what I have done.

I am going to follow some of the advice out there which in my opinion is proven advice because it has worked for me before and that advice is to write it down everyday and look at it.  I have to keep it in front of me.

I can not allow my mind to think of or dwell on anything that is unproductive.  I have done way to much of that the last couple of years and it has not produced any positive results. 

I found an ebook on my computer today titled Create YourOwn Economy by Bob Proctor and in it he says “If you want to earn a lot of money, there is one simple prerequisite—you must make a decision that you are going to earn a lot of money, that is it. It is as simple as it sounds.” 

I am gonig to agree with him.  How can you not. 

This particular chapter goes on to say the following.  “Kick it around as much as you want, but at the final analysis you will find that that is the common denominator that has enabled wealthy people to earn a lot of money. Decision!” 

When I began this blog I made the decision to turn my life around and become the success that I want to be.

The Goal Is Set

30 Jul

Ok, since I committed myself in an earlier post that I would have a goal set by the end of the day I sat down and did it.  I want XX amount of money in my checking account by Oct. 1. 

The first dollar amount that I put down intimidated me and it was not really that much so I raised it some more.  To many people it may not seem like much but to me it does.

If you thought doubt and fear was a problem before I set the goal it has intensified considerably since I made the decision and wrote it down.  Let the battle begin.

My son had bible camp this week and they had a little concert this evening.  It has been quite sometime since I have been to any social gathering.

I would love the money to come from one certain source and have been trying desperatley for quite sometime to make that happen but now I am going to let the money come to me and I don’t care how it happens.  There is an endless supply of opportunities out there so why focus on just one.

There is a good chance that I will add on to this post instead of starting another on.  Will just have to see.

Set Back Already

29 Jul

One thing that I may need to clarify is that we do make money just not near enough to cover what is going out (up until now).  I have a couple of websites that I do some affiliate marketing with. 

Three of them were ranking very well in the search engines and late yesterday afternoon they lost ranking and are not showing up in the search engines. 

Before the start of “Attract This” it surely would have bothered me but now “water off a duck”.

I was listening to the self hypnosis tape yesterday and he says the same thing as everybody else, you have to set a goal.  As I mentioned in my first post I do not have any goals and have not set any for a couple of years now.  The last goals I set were about three years ago.

I actually reached a few of them and instead of setting a few more and really taking another step forward in my life, I slowly quit looking at my goal sheet and allowed negative thoughts to enter my mind.  I began to read the bible less. 

I quit listening to the motivational tapes and books that I had.  Everything just stopped.  It is beyond me why I would allow this to happen but I did.

I am at a point in my life that I have isolated myself pretty much from all human contact except for my wife and kids. 

No matter what I will have some sort of goal written down by the time this day ends.

Turning My Life Around

27 Jul

Let me give a short write up of where I am in my life right now and after that I have no intention of mentioning it again.  I am 50 years old.  I am happily married and have two children ages 8 and 11.  I am a$$ deep in debt.  I am overweight.  I really don’t have any goals. 

My brother, whom I love very much screwed me over like you can’t imagine and appears not to be bothered by it one little bit.  Not only that but while he was setting me up (that is the way that I look at it) he said that he was not like “somebody else that I will not mention” and that I would not lose one night’s sleep over the deal.  Well over two years later I am losing sleep over the deal. 

My wife whom I also love very much, when I continually asked her to stop spending she charged on.  This all leads me to I guess what I am going to call rock bottom.

It is time for me to stop dwelling on the people who in my opinion have done me wrong.  I have found the book “Your Invisible Power” by Genevieve Behrend that I am going to put into practice.  I am also going to begin praying, praising God more often and getting into the word.

It isn’t like I am living on the street or anything like that.  I do have a roof over my head and clothes on my back.  I am just beaten.  There may be quite a few people out there who no exactly how I feel.  Besides the bible and Genevive I found a self hypnosis tape that I am going to begin listening to.  I also have downloaded on my Ipod the Science of Getting Rich by Rebecca Fine and am also a member of that forum. 

Am also a fan of Bob Proctor although I was an affiliate for the Six Minutes To Success program and have been owed $49.95 cents for well over a year now.  Have sent some emails to get the money owed to me,  was assured that I would receive said money and still waiting.  Still I do not blame Bob but the people associated with the 6 minutes program.

Two more plugs that I will give are to Nightingale-Conant and Earl Nightingale.   You probably are wondering how in the world I can possibily be in the position that I am after referencing all of my influences, especially the bible.  Stinkin thinkin as Zig Ziggler would say.  I have run out of time for right now, untill later.
