Even if you don’t celebrate the American Thanksgiving holiday, take a little time from you busy day to think thankful thoughts. The fact that you have the ability to access a computer and use your eyes to see this post is something to be thankful for. It may seem like a little task, but it’s not. There are folks who can’t do what you’re doing right now.
Of the millions of things I have to be thankful for, the fact that I manage to steal a couple of hours of quiet time this morning is one of them, I am especially thankful for the timing of one of my goals.
Thankful for Accomplished Goals
My goal this year was to double my last year’s income. I officially managed to double my last year’s yesterday afternoon (around 3:14 PM)! I doubled my income with a month left in the year to spare. On top of that, approximately 65% of the income came from passive/residual income sources. That’s definitely a step in the right direction (last year my passive revenue accounted for 32% of my income).
Think about Next Year
While you’re spending time being thankful today, in the back of your mind start thinking of your goals for next year. Don’t wait until January 1st to come up with a laundry list of goals. Between now and December 31st is a great time to begin thinking about your next year’s successes.
I know the holidays can be a hectic time, but given the state of the economy and the state of your pocketbook, I’m sure you can find a little time to plan your next year’s success. After all, you’re reading this blog aren’t you? I don’t want to brag, but my readers are go-getters. We have a way of motivating each other. Next year this time, I want to hear about your successes!
In the meantime, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
