It's hard for me to accept when things change (for the worse). I like to be able to know what to expect, and I like to be able to control my life so I can be happy with the results. First off I need to say that I am very grateful for everything in my life. I really shouldn't be angry or depressed about my life, in reality I truly have a dream life. The problem is that humans are never satisfied and I find myself to be a goal oriented person so if I am not meeting my personal expectations then I get all pissy. Being so hard on myself has allowed me to achieve huge financial success that I could have never dreamed of. The bad part is I am always hard on myself. I find it hard for me to relax and not worry about making that $1,000 day goal etc. Most people would think having so much success that you can just sit on your ass and smile the good life, but in reality you just end up wanting more (who doesn't right?). Is that good? It's good to have goals without them you are lost in the wind. I realized that putting so much stress on myself, makes all the success not fun to enjoy. It kinda sucks, if you can't be happy with your success…… It's not like I moap around all day, every day, but it's just when certain things aren't going my way I get a bit moody. What do I want? I am not a person who gives up, I always find that light at the end of the tunnel. I don't accept quitting, it's not something I do. I keep digging and digging until I find something that works. For me I want something stable. I want to promote something that will let rest easy so I know it will be around tomorrow. I have been at affiliate marketing for a long time now. I have seen many traffic sources get harder to promote though and I have always found a way back in, or find other places to advertise. I am like a little mouse, that finds that small crack in the wall and even if it's cold outside, I sneak in and find the warmth. My goals outlined:
- I want stable affiliate marketing income producing over $1500 profit every day for a very, very long time. This goal must be fulfilled by April 16, 2010.
- I will work the same amount of hours, not more than that (9-5 max).
- I want to be happy with my results as I should be already.
- I want the ability to control my emotions more.
- I will continue to expand the niches where I am already having success
I have been finding it difficult to focus lately and writing down my goals always helps me focus on what I want. Actually without this blog and me posting about my goals I'm sure my income wouldn't be near the level it is now. I make little money from my actual blog however the blogging helps me focus on what I want and that has helped profit immensly. I never actually thought about that before, but in a way I make huge money from my blog because of what my writing down my goals has helped me achieve. ** Remember what you focus on expands, so focus and think about what you want and it will come to you. Keep your thoughts clear and precise. Know what you want in want in life right down to every last detail and you will receive it. The law of attraction is always at work, like it or not.

That's it for now, I seriously feel much better just getting all my thoughts on my computer screen (funny how that seems to help..) To Success & $1500 days!
