There’s nothing worse than someone who begs to be taught how Internet marketing works, has others show them the ropes, and then quits on the implementation of those ideas.
Many new entrepreneurs come into the business looking to make huge amounts of money at first and forget about or quit planning the small goals that are going to take them to the top.
They want immediate gratification, but don’t want to waste time on the small stuff that sets them up for a better and more profitable success. When you’re concentrating on future endeavors, it’s easy to overlook the small ones that can set you up as a person who celebrates the small achievements.
Every goal realized is a good one to celebrate and pat yourself on the back for. Enjoy each and every moment of success that’s working to get you to the top. Celebrating small goals and milestones is a way to keep yourself motivated.
You don’t have to go overboard, but designating milestones that you believe are significant enough to celebrate is a good way to keep you working toward the next – and onward to ultimate success as a business owner.
Don’t make the milestones too far apart – or too close together so they seem insignificant. If you wait too long to reach a goal, you may lose interest or momentum. Try to plan on reaching small goals at intervals no longer than two weeks apart.
Make your milestones known to others. Let others celebrate your achievements with you and they’ll relate to you in ways that will make them get to know you and want to see what you’re all about and to purchase what you have to offer.
One of the major milestones to plan for is your first full year in business. Not many reach that important goal - and it deserves celebrating in a big way. New marketers will be in awe that you saw it through and encouraged by your determination.
The gurus will realize what you’ve given to get here to this monumental achievement and likely give you the kudos you deserve, especially if you’re making traction with your accomplishments.
Visualize the small milestones as bricks and one placed on top of the other will eventually lead you to the “building” encompassing all your hard work and meeting goals – even the small ones.
Eventually, you’ll be able to better plan the small and the large milestones and also have more knowledge of how to balance them. You’ll feel a greater sense of accomplishment when you reach the finish line if you recognize them along the way.
