In this module we will talk about personal goal setting for success.
This is a very important module because it’s all about setting your goals for what you want to hit (your success) with becoming an affiliate on Clickbank.
If you missed the previous module, here’s the link to it: Clickbank Success formula.
Figure Out What Motivates You
Now the most important thing of all this is figuring out what motivates you most. Is it family, money, course, traveling…?
Whatever that motivates you is what we initially want to create this goal out of.
Have the Mindset of a Goal
Now if you’re just getting into this whole affiliate marketing business with a mindset of
“oh, I just want to make some money” or
“I just want to try this out”.
You’re not going to get the same result as if you go in and say…
“I want to hit $10k a month” or “I want buy a BMW5 series” or
“I want to get this specific house”
and so on.
If you go in with the mindset of a goal the chances of you finding success will be a lot higher because you can work towards that goal.
An Example of Personal Goal Setting from My Personal Life
When I first started out online I was 15 years old. I had one goal in mind. I wanted a Range Rover. Being 15 I couldn’t get a license and my parents were absolutely not going to buy me a Range Rover.
So I pretty much did everything I could to figure out a way to buy a Range Rover. So I started to look out for other opportunities to start generating income so that I could hit my goal of a Range Rover.
I didn’t even know what affiliate marketing was at that point in time. I didn’t even know what internet marketing or Clickbank was.
This was about 12 years ago…
But I knew I had one thing that I wanted to hit and that is I wanted a Range Rover.
However, because of that goal that I set I am where I am today. I got that Range Rover. I got a lot of other things as well because I keep on creating more and more goals.
The reason why I’m telling you this is not to brag or anything, but to show you that one little goal like that has got me to where I am today!
Figure Out Your Goal
So what I want you to do is I want you to figure out what is it that you want to hit. What is it that big goal you want to hit? Is it a car? Is it traveling? Is it a monetary goal?
Write Down Your Goal
Now I want you to write it down multiple times on a piece of paper in front of you; literally like you’re were instructed by your tutor in class to do it.
“I will get a Range Rover. I will get a Range Rover…“. Then cement this into your head. That way you have your goal set and ready to rock.
Now outlining your income goal is really, really important.
Set up Smaller Goals In Between
The biggest thing about this is you want to have smaller goals in between. Let’s take monetary goal as an example.
Let’s say you want to make $10,000 per month as an affiliate marketer on Clickbank. What you need to do is actually set up smaller goals in between.
The reason is this. For your goal of $10,000 per month let’s say you’re making say 3 sales for example, and you make $50 a sale. That’s a $150 you make. Now you’re moving forward but that’s pretty far from $10,000 a month.
Often what will happen is you’ll be so far from that goal that it will demotivate you. so you won’t be actually be able to get to the goal that you want and you will give up.
How Not Achieving Your Goals Affects Your Belief
There are two things I want to quickly talk about. They are things that I see people struggle with. You know you have the potential to be a great affiliate marketer and making income with Clickbank, right? That’s why you’re here. That’s why you’re reading taking this course.
Because of your potential, you want to take action. Whatever you take action with, you’re going to get specific result. For example you’re doing affiliate marketing with Clickbank and getting result.
Now if you make sales you’re going to get results. If you make no sales you’re still going to get result, even if it is different. Whatever the case may be, you will have result to something.
Now those results you’re going to have will affect your belief…
If you make no sales in your first round through being an affiliate marketer, testing it out, then you’re going to believe that it’s a lot harder than it really is.
And your belief is going to affect your potential which in turn is going to affect your action taken, and your result is going to be even worse! This spirals down and keeps going on and on until you give up.
On the contrary if you make sales in your first time doing affiliate marketing, then you’re going to believe it’s pretty simple, right?
So what you want to do right now is to make sure you belief you can hit that goal and that you’re going to have success.
Outlining Your Goal Helps You to Belief
That’s what outlining is all about. You want to outline your goal so that you can believe. Shift your mindset so you believe you can hit it.
And having smaller goals in between is going to help you make sure you believe you can hit your main goal.
A Great Example of Personal Goal Setting for your Success
If $10,000 per month is your goal, all you want to do is say
“Alright, $10k per month is my main goal. My first smaller goal is make 5 sales as an affiliate marketer on Clickbank”.
When you hit it, cross it off your list. Nice!
“I want to make a second smaller goal. My next smaller goal is make 20 sales as an affiliate marketer”.
Awesome you did it! Cross it off.
“My next smaller goal is sell a 100 products as an affiliate marketer”.
Awesome! Check that off. Remember your final goal obviously is make $10k.
The Progress Circle
Now you make your way up after you’ve seen progress. That progress is helping your belief, your potential, your action taken and your finally your result!
It goes up in a circle instead of going down and down and making you give up. It motivates you more and more.
That’s what you get when you have smaller goals in between. That way you see yourself moving forward before you hit that main goal.
You Moving Forward Motivates You
You moving forward is what motivates you to continue. I just want to make you understand that you should write down your initial or over all big goal.
Now Set Bigger Goals
Now that you’ve hit that big goal, it becomes a smaller goal. Then you can create more bigger goals from there. Don’t forget start by writing down your goals on a piece of paper.
Map it out, stick it on your fridge, put it on your computer, put it in places where you will see it everyday to motivate you to continue.
Remember, without goals, you’re just going to go out there hoping it’s all going to work. That’s pretty much what I have for you in this module.
