How much would you like to earn?
Here are the questions that get asked when people first sign up at Wealthy Affiliate. They are designed to try to focus your thoughts early on on what you want to earn. Setting a target is a sure fire way of firming up on where members want to go.
Some people are very modest in their targets, whereas others set more aggressive markers. There is no perfect answer. Some say aim high, whilst others say it’s pointless setting unrealistic targets, but the important thing is, they take aim!
Questions – What are Your Money Goals?
In order to achieve any level of success, you need to have a starting point. This starting point is having a “goal”. Goal setting is probably more important than you realise.
Success is not all about money and it shouldn’t be your only motivation, but for many of us, the money part does matter a little bit (or a lot). 🙂 And because of this, I want you to take a few minutes and really come up with some tangible “money” goals.
The way I did it was to isolate my biggest bill (the mortgage payment) and set that as a target. That would mean my mortgage would be paid each month from affiliate marketing income if my target was reached. Good? I think so. For most people that will mean setting a target of £300-600 per month.
Please make sure you answer ALL 3 of these goals within this post and feel free to elaborate on these answers within your comment below.
QUESTION #1: How much money would you be happy earning?
This is really your minimum that you’d want to earn. Maybe not equivalent to a mortgage payment, maybe a smaller bill, or a quantity that would allow you to have an extra slap-up meal each month?
QUESTION #2: How much would you be ecstatic earning?
This is your main target. The mortgage payment equivalent. Make sure this is high enough to give you satisfaction, whilst not being so large as to be impossible.
QUESTION #3: And how much TIME are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?
Notice the last question? That is there for a reason. Most of us are in such a rush to become ‘rich’ that we end up like the hare, instead of the tortoise. Please refrain from saying you want to be successful within a week or a month, because if you do this, I can honestly say you are setting yourself up for failure from the word go. Building a business takes time. It can’t be done overnight.
Be realistic, but at the same time shoot for the stars. If you come up short from BIG goals, you will have still reached a slightly lesser level of greatness.
I look forward to hearing everyones feedback and please do take time to immerse yourself within the goals and conversations within this thread.
To your success!
