We all know those people that seem to win at everything they set their minds to. I use to compare those peoples life’s to my life. All while I made excuses why I had failed at my most recent plans. No matter how much planning I spend on trying to make that thing a success. It just didn’t work out. I couldn’t understand why besides the fact that I was a failure in my mind. This seemed to happen over and over again. The comparison trap is an easy thing to get caught in.
Then one day by divine intervention. While at the library in the fiction section. I stumbled across this book about setting goals and how to achieve those goals. I don’t even remember the title I wish I did. That book changed my life! It taught me how to win at life and stop feeling like a failure.
My big take away from that book was goals are the way successful people crush life! We all know goals are awesome and I had no problem setting them. My issue came with how to achieve those goals. This book taught me to take my goals and break them down into small bite size chunks. Instead of focusing on the big goal you focus on one small bite size piece at time. I use this method in almost everything I do.
This method works fabulous with Swagbucks. As soon as I set a new goal, I break it down to as small as possible number. Like below, instead of telling myself I have to earn $400 from SB before Christmas. I tell myself I have to earn only 380 SB daily this week. Right there the goal seems so much more realistic and manageable. Of course there are going to be days when you crush your daily goal. Then there is going to be days you have no time for SB. That is okay don’t beat your self up over it! In the long run it will all even out. All that matters is that your consistent.
Magical number formula;
Goal $800 / 2 = $400 / 15 weeks until 12/20 = $26.66 / 7 days in a week = 380 that is the amount of SB I need to earn daily to met my goal.
Make sure you sign up for SWAGO. It is an easy way to earn SB.
Follow along all day on the how to earn SB post in the Savears found here! That is where I will be updating my daily earnings.
