Why Today is the First Day of the Rest of My Life

Attention all readers: I declare that today is the first day of the rest of your successful, prosperous life!

For me, today marks a new beginning because:

  • It’s the beginning of January and we are starting a new year.
  • Everyone just took down all their holiday decorations and New Year’s Day has passed and it’s time for a new chapter in life.

Why is today the first day of the rest of my life?

Today is Day 30 of my 30 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge!

I am ready to start a new chapter in my life. Are you ready for a new challenge?

What I Learned From Writing

I have learned a lot from writing! I also learned a lot from writing articles 30 days in a row as part of my 30 day challenge. I owe it to you, aspiring writers, to tell you what I have learned, and I hope you find my results helpful and interesting.

In summary, by completing this 30 day writing challenge, I have learned:

  • If you set a goal for yourself, it’s a lot easier to accomplish the goal.
  • If you are uncertain of the outcome, you feel more motivated (at least I did). I also read that in a magazine recently and I realized it was happening to me.
  • By deciding on specific dates for my challenge (I actually made graphics with WordArt for each day of the challenge ahead of time), this made it measurable and I found myself abiding by my schedule no matter how late in the day it was. I knew I wanted to complete my goal on the chosen date.
  • If you practice positive thinking while you are trying to reach your goal, it definitely helps you achieve your goal. I kept imaging myself at the finish line. I watched a movie called The Story of Gabby Douglas, the Olympic champion from the 2012 Olympics who won multiple gold medals.
  • As recommended in “The Secret”, I imagined that I already completed my challenge. Imaging that I already achieved my goal made it that much easier to know I would achieve my goal.
  • When you write for 30 days straight, it’s like running laps practicing for a marathon. Now I feel more confident and ready to take on bigger writing challenges!

30 Hubs in 30 Days - HubPages Statistics and Results

This was the first time I embarked on a 30 day writing challenge. I think challenges like these on HubPages were more popular in the past, but I decided to try one myself.

Overall, it was a good experience and there are some HubPage perks as well. If you are thinking on creating a writing challenge, here are some stats:

My overall hub score went a little up and down, but I understand that happens because new hub articles have lower scores when first published, so this will affect your overall HubPage profile score.

Overall HubPages Profile Score Report

For the past 30 days, here is a summary of my overall HubPage profile score:

Earnings Report

As compared to the previous 3 months, my earnings have increased 53%. That is good news for some extra revenue each month.

New Challenges Ahead

Now that I have completed by 30 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge, my next challenge will be to go back to my old hubs which aren’t featured and enhance them in an effort to have them featured again.

Another challenge that interests me is a 30 day challenge proposed in “The Strangest Secret” video.

The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale

Discover the secret to how to be successful: The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale.

Listen to this very powerful video by Earl Nightingale. It’s referred to as The Strangest Secret. It’s similar to what you might hear in the video The Secret or read in the book The Secret. It’s presented a little differently here. I have listened to it twice already and I plan on listening to it again.

Towards the end of the video, there is a 30 day challenge. Is it a coincidence that I stumbled upon this video on day 30 of my 30 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge? It’s almost like the universe was calling me to take on another challenge. The challenge in this video isn't necessarily a writing challenge, it's a goal that you set for yourself and then are committed to. So it can be any goal you want.

I highly recommend this video! I rate it 5 out of 5 stars. * * * * *

The Strangest Secret video is 30 minutes. Listen to it once, listen to it twice, or as many times as you like. I found it not only powerful, by extremely influe

Quotes and Important Things to Remember

As you go about, pursuing your writing dreams, remember to reach for the stars. Earl Nightingale puts it best when he says:

As you go about, pursuing your writing dreams, remember to reach for the stars. Earl Nightingale puts it best when he says:

"Life should be an exciting adventure."

"See yourself reaching your goal."

"You are guided by your mind."

"Every person should be glad to get out of bed in the morning and do a job because you like to do it."

"To be successful, you must work hard."

"In order to control your life, control your mind."

"The architect of the universe did not build a stairway leading to nowhere."

"Refuse to belief that there are any circumstances that will prevent you from reaching your goal."

The 6 Steps to Success According to Dr. David Harold Fink

As stated in The Strangest Secret video, according to Dr. David Harold Fink, the 6 steps to being successful are:

Success

  1. Set yourself a definite goal.
  2. Quit running yourself down.
  3. Stop thinking of all the reasons why you cannot be successful, and instead, think of all the reasons why you can.
  4. Trace your attitudes back to your childhood and try to discover where you first got the idea that you couldn’t be successful if that is the way you have been thinking.
  5. Change the image you have of yourself by writing a description of the person you would like to be.
  6. Act the part of the successful person you would like to become.

The Secret DVD

"The Secret" by Rhona Byrne

Along the same lines as the "Strangest Secret", another highly recommended book and DVD is "The Secret" by Rhona Byrne. The DVD is something I have watched many times. It is uplifting and fascinating to watch. It has brought me much joy and happiness. It it narrated by an excellent cast including Philosopher Bill Proctor, Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith D.D., author Jack Canfield, and many other super amazing people. Watch the trailer below.

Congratulations for completing your 30 day challenge.

I did one when I was writing for Squidoo, but there were quite a few of us and we supported each other, so you did really well doing it on your own.

Happy new year, hope you have a wonderful 2015.

Thank you so much Elsie. Every cheerleader that stopped by and commented was much appreciated, and motivated me to continue. I searched a lot before I started to see if there were other challenges in progress, but there were very few if any. I think the "challenges" queue was popular about 2 years ago, but who knows, now maybe there will be more.

Thanks again and Happy New Year to you too!

Thanks, Bill. That means a lot to me, so I appreciate your comments and wishes. I think once you cross one finish line, you are ready to cross more. I'm ready. :-)

Happy 2015 to you, and may this be a prosperous year to all!

Thanks Catherine, I really appreciate comment. It did take a lot of determination, motivation and hard work, but it was well worth it. I met new friends on HubPages, completed my goal, got more practice writing (and practice makes perfect), and feel better than ever about pursuing bigger writing projects!

Happy New Year to you! 2015 is going to be a wonderful, prosperous year for all!

That is quite an accomplishment. I think the key to your success was in the planning. On the back of my cross country tee-shirt is the quote, "The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare."

easylearningweb 23 months ago Author

Hi Availiavision, That saying on your tee-shirt is so true. Preparation is truly the key! That is why the last 10 or so hubs were the most challenging, because for those, I didn't have as many notes and research done as the earlier ones. It has really taught me a lot and helped me be better prepared for the future.

Thanks for your comment, much appreciated.

Congrats on completing your challenge, Amelia! 30 hubs in 30 day challenges are awesome because they really increase your earnings, traffic and most of all, improve your writing skills. I've embarked on a challenge like that myself and found it a whole lot easier to write under deadlines after doing it.

I love those Earl Nightingale quotes and also I'm a HUGE fan of The Secret. The law of attraction is definitely the most powerful law of the universe. I'm always using the Secret to attract whatever I want into my life, but it seems that others just don't believe in it.

Thanks for the motivational and inspiring hub. You just might have inspired me to embark on another Hub Challenge!

Thanks for the congrats, susi10. I really appreciate it, as well as your comments. I did take a break after my challenge, and now I write when time permits, including hubs, short stories, and more.

Glad you like Earl Nightingale as well as The Secret. I also love Bob Proctor. You are right, some do not believe. Remember that one quote by Dr. Michael Beckwith, "Mediocracy always attacks excellence." It's true. He is also a great speaker and teacher.

Glad I have inspired you. I'm very happy to hear that. :-)

First and foremost, congratulations! I'm new to hubpages and was wandering if this challenge was still going. I would love to join in on the 30 hub challenge, as it would challenge me as a writer. If you have any information on this challenge, please let me know. Your input is greatly appreciated.

Hi Deborah, Welcome to HubPages!

I joined about 6 years ago. I love to write and Hubpages is a great community of writers. In recent past, I read about the 30 day challenge but it wasn't being held anymore, so I decided to try it on my own. It was the best thing I ever did. After that, I started writing short stories, joined writers groups online and I'm writing even more now, and taking a self publishing course. I plan to write about my experiences.

Look luck to you! Keep writing!

Regards,

Amelia/Easylearningweb.com
