This is a case study in the way in which you must define your goals in order to attain them. Here is an excerpt from a goal I had set as an online article writer to submit articles to the top premier free online article submission website:
?On October 27, 2005 at 8:30am, I, Lance Winslow, committed to have 3000 articles by January 1, 2006 and 750,000 article views; at the time I had only 2575 articles and 610,000 articles views.?
With regards to this lofty goal I stated; ?This is going to be a tough one indeed, some say impossible, yet something inside is saying "oh yeah, watch me!" Time will tell? and the race had begun.
Now then on January 1, 2006 and I had surpassed this goal and now have 3333 articles written. I have surpassed that goal by 333 articles and written 758 articles since that goal was made in roughly three months time. Instead of 750,000 article views, action has rewarded me, as action always rewards life; with 844,800 article views. Thus surpassing my goal by 94,800 article views. This is 235,000 article views in about 3-months. Actually the goal, which was set for 3000 articles was accomplished on November 19 and I did not write an article for 3 weeks and resumed again on December 15 and write 333 articles to finish out the year. On December 1 my article views surpassed my goals a month early, thanks to EzineArticles.com and my robust article posting campaign.
I would like to make a point here. I am not a writer, yet if a non-writer can do this, then anyone can. I indicated that time would tell and indeed it has, I have surpassed my goals that others said was impossible. I have surpassed these goals by a wide margin; you can too. For those who tell others it cannot be done, I say to you; ?Oh yah, watch us! Time, that's right; Time will tell.? Tell me your goals for 2006 are you going to make them happen or tell others they cannot achieve theirs? Think on this in 2006.
