We all have goals but very few of us actually get things done. Typically don't seize our goals because we do not make the reward for accomplishing them large enough. Write down your major life goals. Write down your goals for each day and perform them in order. Putting your goals on paper is essential. If you want to make money in a depression, you have to get clear about your goals.
Never give up on your dreams. Get a mentor who's currently living the life you want to live and figure out what they did to get there. Learn precisely how they accomplished their goals. Figure out what you want in life and get a very clear vision of it. Once you realize what you want, go out and get it. A good incentive you can use to get through hard days is to put positive quotes in strategic places around the house. Put them up in the bathroom or on the refrigerator. Get really specific with them like - In one year I'll make seven hundred thousand bucks. Really believe in your affirmations. Make affirmations a key part of your daily regimen and watch how your world changes.
If you are totally focused, there is no reason you can't make it really. Even though we are in a recession, there actually has never been a better time in history for people with the fortitude and vision to get rich. Most people never get anything done because they have no idea what they really desire.
