Mark Victor Hansen had this quote in his ezine today, “Big goals get big results.” …and in another issue, he had this quote, “You will become as small as your controlling desire, or as great as your dominant aspiration.”
12 weeks ago, I set a big personal goal to compete in my first Triathlon event (this Sunday). That was a big goal for me as I swim about as good as a dead fish… but you know what?
I’m sitting here reflecting on what has showed up in my life over the past month as the Triathlon event draws near:
-My bodyfat has dropped 4.5% from my starting position
-Triathlete Magazines are arriving in my mail box
-I have a triathlon wet suit in my closet
-A new Giant TCR Composite Zero bike in my garage
-Quick-release shoelaces for the transition speed
-My desire for junk food & 8 cans of soda a day has disappeared
-And I feel more confidence from training 4-5 days a week with a personal trainer for the past 2 months.
Your success in life or in Article Marketing is cumulative.
Each success builds on the next and when you are persistent day after day, week after week, month after month… your results begin to stack up in your favor.
Set your Article Writing & Marketing goals BIGGER and I guarantee you’ll see bigger results!
For the TRIATHLON, I cross trained in the gym, on the bike, in the pool & lake and local 5-10k races. My trainer was hired to be part of my team to help me achieve this big goal.
For ARTICLE MARKETING, your training begins with setting a big goal, doing research and executing the plan yourself or with a team of writers that you assembled to help you with your big goals.
You can do it. :) Be consistent and go for it. Remember, your results are cumulative.
