Success is a relative term. Your online success is depends on your personal definition for success. A person from South Asian country may consider as successful marketer if he can make $500 - $1000 a month working full time but it's nothing for a person stay in States, Canada and United Kingdom.

It's also depends on the hard work and commitment you made with your online business. Working for 2 or 3 hours per day can't make you rich overnight.

Biggest Mistake For Starting a Home Based Business

Most of the folks made a mistake of starting a home based business without having a success mind set. They don't know what they want to achieve. They put less or minimum efforts and hope for maximum output. Therefore most of them end with frustration.

There are lots of things you need to decide earlier before starting your home based business.

-How do you define success?
-Clear statement of how successful you want to be?
-What goals you want to achieve in order to be successful?
-How much money you want to earn to make you feel successful?

The Missing Piece of Success Puzzle

Statistics shows that out of 100 marketers only 3% get success with their online home based businesses while 97% struggle hard.

They buy new products

Get enroll in every new program launched

They do everything but Nothing Worked for them.


It's Simple. They never bother to define their GOAL.

The missing pieces of success puzzle "The GOAL".

"If you don't set goals, You can't regret not reaching them" - Yogi Berra

Goal setting is crucial for success. It is the most effective technique to accomplish anything you want. By setting your goal, you will take a step forward towards your success.

It is equally important for everything, you want to achieve in your life, but when it comes to business planning, it is something you cannot missed. After all every plan begins with a desire to success which you set as a GOAL for you.

Your first step towards building a successful home based business is to SET GOAL.

Process of Setting and Achieving Goals

Setting goal is not enough. You must need to take action steps to make that goal a reality. Below are few important steps that will help you to define and achieve your goals.

1. Write Your Goal Statement

"First important step to get something you want is: 'DECIDING WHAT YOU WANT' Ben Stein

Define exactly what you want from your business. State your expectations as clear as possible. For Example:

- How much money you want to make?
- You also need to write how will you measure your success?
- When you reached that goal?
- Are you willing to do all activities that will produce results?

You must need to set realistic goals while writing your statements. If you want to make $5,000 per month than put more efforts as compare to require for making $1,000 per month. This is logical.

I suggest you to write an initial goal of making $500 and when you reach your goal, plan to double your $500. This is the method I used to build my business.

Example of Goal Statement:

"I Will Make $___ at the end of this month with advertising budget of $___"

2. Make Commitment

"One step - choosing a goal and sticking to it - can change everything" - Scott Reed
Commitment is the key of your goal setting process. You should stick to your goal if you really want a real success. Do not just sit and wait for things to be happen. Take stand and do it. Do it now.

3. Motivate Yourself

Motivate yourself to create high level of emotional energy.

Self-Motivation: Push yourself to accomplish your desire. Develop a statement that fills you with energy and repeat it every day or when you feel your energy level is down.

My Personal Tip: I have written my motivation tips on a piece of card and stick it on the wall in front of my bed. Whenever I wake up in the morning it is the first thing I used to read, and it works.

Take Away:

1. Set your goal (What you want to accomplished with time required to do it)

2. Stick to it (Make commitment)

3. Motivate Yourself
