With goals that I had set this year, I am sad to say that I had accomplished 1/3 of them while the rest are either not done or failed to complete when I gave up half-way through.
This year, my New Year resolution was to write at 3 online writing sites; Hubpages, Writedge and Wikinut daily without fail. I am proud to say that I had manage to complete this task as of todate.
My 2nd resolution was to write at least 1 article for each site everyday but with the time constraint, I managed to post an article for one site per day, not all the 3 sites.
My 3rd resolution was to earn at least USD0.90 cents per month at Writedge which means I had to earn at least USD0.03 cents per day. I can’t even hit this goal! Managed to earned USD 0.26 cents per month which I almost gave up posting my articles at Writedge.
However, I did realized that some useful quotes did helped me to stay on at Writedge, determined to accomplish the goals that I had pursued.
Quotes are simple phrases that famous people had once said which are meaningful, resourceful and words of encouragement that had changed my procrastination habit.

How I Motivate Myself with Quotes
I applied useful quotes to keep me motivated, a form of encouragement not to give up easily after numerous failures and setbacks especially on the low earning.
I have several weak points that people tend to stab my back or tried to harm me when I let down my guard.
Hence, at the beginning of every month, I would print out a few inspirational and useful quotes on an A4 paper and paste on my bulletin board, just above my writing desk.
Everyday, I would look at these quotes that reminded me to strive harder and get back on my feet when I was about to collapse, gave up all my hopes writing online.
