Are Goals for Losers?

Do you ever struggle to reach your goals?

They could be business goals, fitness goals, financial goals, family goals, etc.

I’ve found some goals come easily for me while I’ve struggled with others. And this little secret may explain why.

I recently read Scott Adams’ book, “How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big.”

One of the bold statement he makes is, “Goals are for losers.”

He says we should have systems instead of goals.

This is partly semantics because the two subjects are connected.

But I’ve seen situations where I was so focused on the ‘goal’ that it felt like I was losing all the time.

If your goal is to add 10,000 new subscribers by August, you might feel like a failure if you only add 5,000.

But you added 5,000 new subscribers!

If you develop a system you can consistently follow to add new subscribers, it’s a raging success.

You just need to keep following that system…and possibly even expand on it.

This applies to everything you do.

For example, if someone wants to lose 10 pounds, they can take the weight off…but they’re likely gain it back. That’s what the odds say.

What if they develop a system of healthy eating and consistent exercise? Does it really matter whether it takes them 30 days or 60 days to reach the ‘goal?’

The time it takes to reach a specific result isn’t as important as the system that consistently generates the results they’re looking for.

What systems are you developing for your online business right now?

Maybe you’re putting together a system for developing content.

Or you’re using a system to generate qualified buyers to your website.

Or you’re following my system for creating passive income streams using information products.

While it’s awesome to have immediate results, it’s even better to have a system you can follow to consistently achieve the end results you’re looking for.

People often ask me how quickly they can get develop a specific income online…or escape from their job.

I always deflect these questions, because I honestly don’t know you, your skillset, your past history, or how much effort you’ll put in. Nor do I know exactly how your specific market will respond. It’s impossible for anyone to give you an accurate prediction of how much you will earn in a specific amount of time.

If you follow a system, and make it a part of you without giving up, then it’s simply a matter of time until it starts to produce the results you’re looking for.

If you’re looking for instant riches by this weekend, I don’t have anything that can help you.

But if you’re looking for a system to grow a long-term passive income you can be proud of, then the Internet Lifestyle System may be what you’re looking for.
