What’s Your Goal?

We are all in business for a reason. One of the things I learned when I did multi-level marketing was to find your “why”. Why are you in business? Yes, we’re all here to make some money, but that’s not really why you do it. What will you obtain by getting all of that money?

My personal business goal is to make $10 million. But that is just my financial aspiration. The reason I want to make that much money is so that I can enjoy the rest of my life with the people I care about. I’ve always believed in good relationships, and one thing I want to be able to do in my lifetime is be there for the people I care about.

I want to be there when my family needs me. I want to be able to spend time with my friends on a whim. I want to be able to sleep in all day, go to the gym, or spend all night partying whenever I feel like it. That is what $10 million will help me obtain. I don’t want to worry about if my next paycheck will come or if my boss will let me have the weekend off to spend time with my loved ones.

$10 million dollars seems like a lot of money, but it’s a pretty simple lifestyle if I were to achieve it at an early age. I don’t need the fancy car or a big house (though those are always nice). I just want to have the piece of mind that my basic necessities are taken care of, so that I can spend my time where it truly matters.

If you truly want to be successful with your business, it is incredibly helpful to know “why” you’re doing it. Money isn’t really the answer, because all it really is are pieces of paper. Maybe you want that sense of accomplishment, prove someone wrong, help the community, or who knows what else.

So what is your goal? Please feel free to share it, I’d love to hear what you have to say. :)

    Hi Solomon,
    I was happy to read that you were attending the seminar. I have been wanting to meet Paul Kinder, he has captured my imagination. He is a family man and seems to be down to earth. His ventures on the web are very successful and I would like to model myself after him. Paul has mentioned you in some of his emails that he has sent me. My goals have changed recently and for the good. I no longer am satisfied with just plugging along making a living on the internet. i have spent the last ten years as a graphic artist and webmaster. Now I have found that my skills are perfectly tuned to marketing and network marketing. I am creating new things and ideas daily. I have just bought my own script and will be launching my first advertising and traffic site this week and plan to help others along the way. It will be a fulfilling venture and I cannot wait until I produce my first internet millionaire. Hope to meet you soon so I can mold some of my ventures to your solid marketing practices. Until then. Kimd Regards, Magic Roy Suchogorski. Miami Beach Florida, USA

    Hi Solomon,

    This is an excellent blog. I recently had the privilege of getting a few free sesions with a business coach and getting clear on our goals is a priority – and you are right in that WHY we want to achieve our goal is a large and important part of that.

    My goal is to be a millionaire within the next three years. I want to live a lifestyle that gives me the time to work on my art and writing and to adjust my physical activity to a chronic health condition, which will in turn allow me to feel healthier and more productive. I want to spend time with my children and granchildren and play with my dog without it being something I have to squeeze into my schedule. I want to live and work on my own terms and never worry about how I’m going to pay the bills.

    Blessings,
    Parthena

    Hi Solomon,

    my goals are a lot like yours.I am the third oldest of 10 children.When i was growing up in the 60′s , things weren’t as expensive as they are today but there wasn’t the money to me made as well.i remember seeing 1 of my father’s pay cheques at that time it was just $56.00.I couldn’t imagine how he could maintain a household and 10 children with that amount, but we got by.I always said when i grew up i wanted to have more and be able to provide for my family and give them the things i had to go without.i am getting older now and just new to this network marketing.I want to be able to help my grandchilsdren as well .That is why i started a home business, which will be successful in the near future.

    Thanks,
    Doreen A.

    My goals are: To genuinely help others succeed; to provide for my family, have what I need, and at least some of the things I want in life.

    These would include the freedom to spend an afternoon reading a book without feeling guilty; going on a cruise, to living in other parts of the world (don’t care to vacation– all you see are the touristy places and I might as well stay home for that).

    Financially, to have enough money so I never have to worry about having enough for myself and my family… how much is that? LOL! I won’t limit it to a dollar amount, since it all depends on the situation– $1 may be too much and $100 million may not be enough.

    Hi Solomon,

    I think my goal is to not be at the whim of other people’s decisions. About 3 years ago I was working as a production supervisor at an aluminum mill. The company decided to fire me to trim down their supervisory positions. They did this with no warning. I came into my office on the last day of my rotation at the end of my shift and they said, “We’re letting you go.” Less than 5 minutes later I heard the front gate clang shut and I have never entered that place again. It was a hard year looking for a job to replace that one, especially with an ex-supervisor that was telling people you were fired for “performance reasons”.

    I decided then I would work toward a point in my life where I would not be at the whim of others. I also do a lot of work in my church. Having the wealth that I need will allow me to focus on the good I can do for others freely and donate more money to it.

    Finally, it will give me a chance to ensure my children will get the education I want them to have. My wife and I homeschool our children and I want to give them the opportunity to attend the best colleges and universities should they choose to do so.

    Warmest regards,

    Michael Coursey

    Hello, my name is Dan Crowder and I have 2 reasons for trying to make an income online.First to replace the income I lost when I became totally disabled and in a wheelchair in Aug ’06.We went thru all our savings and credit cards in the 8 months I had no income while waiting for Social Security to make a decision about disability pay.The SS Disability pay is less than 1/3 of my previous income which left us a whole bunch behind each month and my wife has had to not only continue to work in a job that is far too stressful for her age but put in any overtime she can get!So I need to replace not only my income but hers as well as she is doing the same work that put me in a wheelchair!We are both Certified Nurses Assistants which puts extreme stress on your spine,knees & hips and at 62 yrs old is too stressful.That means my one goal is a min. of $70,000.00 a year so she can “retire” to a less stressful life and keep from being where I am (wheelchair).I’m not sure that it is doable anymore as about 95% of everything on the internet is a fruad!Thanks for your time,Dan & Carol Crowder Ft. Wayne, Indiana d.crowder@verizon.net

    Hi

    Hi Soloman, my goal is to help as many people as possible to get out of the rut that they are in. I see so many people struggling just to get by, and I want to find a way for them to be able to get out of that rut.

    Before I show them I have to make sure it works for me first. I know how it is to get your hopes up, only to be let down. I will not give up as long as I have breath in my body.

    I can’t even afford to pay aweber or getresponse the monthly fee as of yet. That will not stop me though, it will take allot longer, as long as I’m doing something. It makes you learn as you go as well. That’s another small goal to be able to do get the autoresponder. Hope you are having a wonderful time at the convention, Donna

    Hi Solomon

    In every MLM/Network direct sales company people simply make you review your goals and for many people this is an alien concept. However every successful person in the world says you must dream big. You can achieve it if you believe it. So we need to maybe take a different approach to the normal ‘Goal Setting’ system that we see propagated in every company that uses a direct sales approach.

    I am a firm believer in the backward theory where you see yourself in the future at your given fulfilled goal and then put into place in realistic chunks the things you need to achieve to arrive at your destination.

    This is similar to how people become doctors, lawyers and other professionals in the ‘normal’ world.

    So there is a definite need for people to be honest with their personal development and they need to really believe they should get what they desire but they also need to find out how to achieve their goal in a realistic way, realising that things don’t always go to plan and that sometimes more effort is required and that is something often overlooked.

    Mountaineers get to the top by overcoming fear and challenging themselves against the elements. They must also take each step in the sure belief that it is the right one at the right time.

    Have a great day.

    Hey Solomon,
    It was great to meet you this weekend. My goal is just to double my offline income. I know it’s not very exciting, but that’s all I’m shooting for right now. Some day after I’ve met that goal, I’m sure I’ll come up with a new one.

    Hi,

    My goal in doing internet marketing was and still is just to earn extra money to allow my boys to go to a good Christian school and maybe a little extra to fix up the house. Anything more will be appreciated but I am not trying to get rich, though that would be nice.

    My goal is to deserve the title of my new website “thesafelistguy” ;-) and to use my website to assist marketers in the use of safe lists like Elite Safelist! I’m a firm believer in the Zig Ziglar quote “You can have anything you want in life, as long as you help enough other people get what they want.” If I do a good job assisting others, the six-figure income will come.

    Additionally, like everyone else I’d like the time and money freedom to work, travel and generally enjoy life on my own terms.

    Solomon on a personal note, I’m sorry that I didn’t get to Washington to hang out with you and the rest of the crew. Hopefully, next time. Wishing you a larger life, – BB

    My Goals are Pretty simple. I want to be Free to enjoy my life and my family on my own terms. Go where I want to go, spend what I want to spend, Help who I want to help. I really love to help people, and I probably give away too much
    on some of my sites. I don’t have that cut throat mindset that some marketers
    have.

    So I would have to say, that my biggest goal is to have the money, and power,
    to help other people get a good start on their Internet businesses without it
    costing them an arm and a leg.

    Love the design on your Blog,
    Have a Great Day!

    I am a semi-retired grandmother, helping my son raise four children. I am trying to build a residual income machine that will bring monthly income for me and my family. It would also allow me to fully retire, and experience some of the “golden” in my senior years.

    Thanks.

    My goal by the end of the year (2008) is to make $100,000. Solo, your a witness now that I have written it on your blog. So, lets help each other out and when you make you first million this year, feel free to share the wealth. I always like to say, “sharing is caring”.

    On a more serious note, I do plan on making 100k by the end of the year. I actually have this on my wall next to my light switch. Every time when I walk by or turn off the my light I see a check written out to me. The check is in the amount of $100,000. However, I believe the key is to actually visualize it like you already have it and enjoy the moment.

    Aside from doing that, I usually start off my day on a good note.

    This 80 year old Aussie identifies with Joe Woods!

    Quote:
    “Also I want the things that my parents could not afford to give me growing up.”

    I grew up during the 1930s Great Depression and World War 2.

    We did not have motor cars, telephones, refrigerators, washing machines, radios, air conditioining, hot water services, sewrage, and certainly not TV or computers. If we ever went anywhere it was a long and tedious steam rail jounrey ata a snai’s pace.

    I started work in January 1946 on a weekly wage of $1.85, living away from home, and rode a bicycle 300 kms of a weekend to go home and see my parents. I rode a lonely journey along a gravel road which is now a divided highway, and would you believe it, Inever saw a motor car?

    My entire working life was in the years BC (Before Computers) and I actually worked for Austalia’s leading bank in a country town that did not have electricity in 1952.

    Twenty five years ago my wife and I were earning $70,000 AUD that enabled us to send our 4 kids to the most expensive private schools in Australia. One of those kids is a multi-millionaire property developer.

    My wife and I had 2 family business bankruptcies, the last for $500,000 in 1996 when we wer forced to close down our private college because we could no longer compete with government taxpayer funded TAFE Colleges.

    As a result I was working over 60 hours a week at age 77 when I nearly died from pneumonia with clots in both lungs.

    We do not own a house or a car and we would be living on the street if ti were not for our multi-millionaire son who bought our furniture and put a roof over our heads.

    On Wednesday night this week my wife and I had exactly 63 cents in our bank account before our Age Pension payment yesterday?

    What is My Goal? Well my wife and family are totally hostile towards money making schemes, so I am, like many others, labouring under ‘the cloud’ of family opposition.

    Nevertheless I haven’t stopped dreaming!!! So how big can a penniless 89 year old dream?

    Is anything possible? $100,000 a month? $20,000 a month, $10,000 a month? $10,000 a month might just equal what we were earning 25 years ago?

    I want to be able to pay my son for the 2BR unit we are livingt in and to travel before it is too late, if it is not already too late!

    04. Sep, 2008   

    You guys seriously have some awesome stories. It makes me realize I’m not working hard enough yet.

    I don’t think it’s ever too late and I’d rather try than wonder what could have been.

    Thanks everyone for being so candid, can’t wait to read more! :)

    I have many goals, some loftier than others. I want to make a difference in people’s lives, help animals, volunteer my time to worthwhile organizations. Oh, and yes, I want to make money, lots of it. By helping others reach their goals, I will become wealthy, very wealthy.

    Then, I want to give back to my community and help others. My passions are gardening, animals, and cooking.

    I have visualized $2.9 million many times. You must appreciate and visualize what you want before you will ever attract it.

    To all of our mutual success,
    Diane

    Hi Solomon,
    This is my second response to this great blog. It has been two months since opening my first online business. At that time I had just been laid off from my day job and being disabled (amputee) with no benefits, I found it very tough to find a job thet I was qualified for. I walk ok with my prosthesis but it’s still difficult to compete in todays market.

    The upside is that with the first few dollars I made as an online business owner I re-invested and opened a second business, then a third, a fourth, a fifth and a sixth. This week I have two totally new releases planned. Not only am I making a living for myself, I proudly pay hundreds in commissions each week to members of my sites.

    Thanks for your continued leadership in the industry and giving us, the little guys, a forum in which to dream and aspire.

    I am well on my way to my goal of producing my first internet millionaire.

    Anyone who reads this can contact me and I will help in any way that I can….just Google search my name….see what comes up.

    Kind Regards,

    MR

    Dear Solomon, My goals are to earn around 30,000 GBP per month and more, then to buy a drug rehabilitation centre and a school. Added to this is to buy my Bridge (trademark) in Scientology. Added to this will be more goals of the same size as these, not excluding matrimonial misses to be made at last!
