Molly Gordon is a great American coach – I recommend checking out her website and signing up for her newsletter.
This is a video which she has just posted which is a really nice, succinct group of personal pledges to make going into 2013.

You can’t just hang about hoping people will maybe sort of kinda like your stuff and maybe they’ll come up with the idea of asking you if they could buy it and maybe they’ll even offer you a price and all you have to do is agree.
