Cash Challenged

I’m going to learn to earn online. That is why this site is called Cash Challenged. When I rise to the challenge and learn to earn, I will have cash.

Are You Chasing Your Marketing Goals?

If you establish a site with the marketing goal of making money from it, you need to be clear on what those goals consist of. Once you know the goals of the site, you have a driver for the content. That doesn’t mean your content has to or even should be, sales driven. It needs to provide your future customer with the knowledge and tools to help solve the problem your marketing goals are for. Your future customer will be able to develop a relationship with you through your content.

Find Your Focus If You Expect to Build a Business

Well, another week has passed and somehow it seems I’ve not accomplished much towards my goals. When I take a close look back at the week, I have done some work towards my goals but I’ve also let other activities take precedence. It’s not that the other activities don’t have value and importance, it is more that I’ve not been deliberate in giving focus to my goals.

Beat Procrastination Before It Beats You

Jun 3, 2016 | Motivation

Procrastination, are there any of us who don’t do so at some point? I know I can be very guilty of it at times. It’s so easy to engage in activities that don’t take any real effort, any real thought and any chance of not succeeding.

Fear of Not Succeeding

Usually, when I procrastinate, I start to feel guilty eventually. After the fact of course, not often while I’m procrastinating. Why would I feel guilty while I’m engaged in procrastinating? Then I might have to stop.

Most of the guilt centres around believing myself to be lazy. After all, that is what our parents told us when we procrastinated. We were lazy. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve started to realize that while sometimes I am being lazy and putting off getting to what I need to do. There is another underlying reason for procrastinating.

A fear of not succeeding or not doing the job well. It’s not always a rational fear, in fact, it is rarely rational. I know I can do anything I put my mind to. My mind just decides at times it is not so sure. Then it decides to take the easy path and I put it off for other activities.

Only Hurting Myself

While those other activities might be enjoyable. They might even be something I would otherwise need to do at some point. The cold hard truth is, what I’m putting off is what needs to get done. In all too many cases, it is work needing doing in order to meet my own goals. Nothing holds us back from our goals more than our own fear.

I’ve set a goal to remind myself that when I let my fear and uncertainty of success hold me back from success, the default is failure by my own hand. Life has a way of throwing up obstacles without my help. When I throw them up, I’m just hurting myself.

So, be honest, how often do you get in the way of your own success? Are you ready to push back on your procrastination?

I am. Or, at least, I’m going to sure as hell try.
