Back to my question-What Does Success Mean To Me Here In Hubpages

I am sure many will easily relate to me here. After being here for 6 weeks, I have discovered that four types of people sign up for hub page;

1. Those who sign up to write and earn money

2. Those who sign up to for the pleasure in publishing their own work (don't bother about earnings)

3. Those that sign for both earnings and pleasure in their publications

4. The final category of people that sign up are unscrupulous participant who sign up just to be nuisance to to other hubbers in the hubbing community

To me I easily fit into category 3. "Those that sign for both earnings and pleasure in their publications"

There you have it. Quit frankly, I am here to earn few bucks and also enjoy publishing my own work.

Here's the link to my blog page where you can find other writings.



To me personally, being successful here means writing quality hubs, generating enough traffic, earning some money but above all be a descent citizen of the hubbing community.

Personal Mission Statements

To many, success does not come in golden plates. We have to work for it. However, one should have some guidelines as to direct him.

Here are some tips you can take on and build it into your own.

1. Take stock of your writing skills, interests, achievements, values and even your dreams. Will these things assist you in achieving success in hubpages? If you answer no, then you have responsibility seriously evaluate your life again and align your life to success and positive thinking.

2. Adopt right attitude-Be professional and courteous so that you will not only earn respect but you also earn true friendship

3. Clear negativities in your life-Clear away uncertainly , lethargy, low-self confident, stress, misunderstanding,poor motivation and replace with motivation and inspiration

4. Recognise your inner strength, accept it and work to enhance it if needed to be.

5. Create and affirm detail images of your success in hub pages - Success is a mind game. If you are not successful in your mind, you don't expect to be successfully in life.

So watch what you put into your mind
