Burn's Night is celebrated worldwide by Scots (and many other nationalities looking for an excuse) and is the anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns; born 25th January 1759. Affectionately known as Rabbie Burns and endeared to the Scots for his writing in dialect often not understood by the Sassenachs (English). 

An example of dialect taken from a song made popular by another Scot, Sir Harry Lauder,  "Jist a Wee Deoch 'n' Doris (It's a Braw Bricht Moonlicht Nicht the Nicht)" roughly translated as A small shot of whisky (It's a beautiful bright moonlight night, tonight).

Watch a version of the song performed by clicking here.

Rabbie's most famous song "Auld Lang Syne" is sung in nations all over the world on Hogmany (New Year's Eve) but he is credited with over 300 lyrics and poems, filled with humour, love, friendship and drink!

So, today being the 25h January, you can celebrate with a meal consisting of haggis, neaps and tatties - haggis, mashed swedes (rutabega in the USA) and mashed potato, served accompanied by bagpipes and all washed down with copious amounts of Scotch Whisky.

But what has this to do with affiliate marketing?

Nothing, and everything!

It's a celebration and everyone should celebrate achievements, not just major achievemnets but all achievements no matter how small they may seem. 

Especially those people who who take the path to freedom offered by affiliate marketing.

Regular small achievements lead to massive results!

First, celebrate making the decision to become an affiliate marketer, mark the date in your calendar and celebrate it every year.

Celebrate your first blog post - add to your calendar.

Celebrate the first subscriber added to your list - add to your calendar.

Celebrate your first commission, no matter how small - add to your calendar. 

Celebrate staying the course and not giving up and do this every evening.

Make your life a series of celebrations and look back on them each year; you will be amazed at how far you have come in such a short time.

God bless.

      Excellent post, I think we often forget or pass off the small wins. It would be nice to actually see at yearend just how big the list would be. I’ll tip one for you with my next small win.

        Thanks Ken, It’s amazing when we look back how small the obstacles we encounered along the way and how big they looked before they were conquored.

      The great thing about celebrating the small things is that it builds confidence and allow one to stretch their goals and vision even further. I know for myself each time I celebrate my belief in myself and what’s possible grows. That growth spurs new growth..

      You are correct, after awhile you do look back and see how far you’ve come on your journey.

      P.S. This post makes me hungry. LOL!!

      Yes CJ,
      Confidence is more than half the battle and each win we have builds on the ones before.
