Where am I going?
Last Update: Sep 10, 2018
What's new in my life? Well, I am currently between jobs and I am trying to find myself. One thing I know for sure is that I want to be happy in my work. Why is that such a problem? Society seems to dictate every move we make...I mean a 40 something year-old should already know what they want to be when they grow up. Right?
Unfortunately, I have always marched to the beat of a slightly different drum, matter of fact, I am not sure my music is even on most people's playlist. I want to be more than what I have been so far. I want my life to change the world around me. In a black and white world, I want to be orange, blue, green, or even yellow. I want to be colorful!!
The above reasons are why I made my way to Wealthy Affiliates. I am looking for a way to provide for myself and my family, but also be happy. I feel like the education I am gaining here at WA will allow me to do just that. I know that it won't be instantaneous, but it is enough for me to just be working toward that goal.
I feel like the people here at WA are very accepting, and willing to help with any questions I have had. In the business world being helpful to your "co-workers" is not the norm. Most of us can agree that we live in a cutthroat society where people will step on you to get further up the ladder. Very seldom do you find people who are willing to invest in your success the way that people here at WA are willing to. This has been a refreshing change for me.
Now to answer the question of Where am I going? Well, I don't know exactly know where I am going, but I do know that I am enjoying the journey. Every day I am challenged by the WA platform to go further than I went the day before. I am learning that I am now part of a village, and I like that feeling.
I may not know where I am going but I do know that I am headed in the right direction. Just knowing that I am working toward my goals has been very exciting for me. I told my husband a few months ago that my greatest fear is to be 60 or 70 years old and look back on my life with regrets, knowing that I never stepped out of my comfort zone to pursue my dreams. Now, I know I won't have those regrets.
Thanks for reading,
Like you I have taken the WA challenge, and you are quite right, it does feel very much like a community who are interested in helping you achieve your goals.
I just wanted to encourage you to continue with the process, and i wish you all the very best for the future.
On any journey there are two difficult steps to take.
1. the initial step of getting going (not fully knowing what its all about)
2. The last step (as this one involves you seeing the finish line, and wanting it to be all done), the danger here is too rush the final step and potentially ruin all the work that was put in so far.
So be patient, persistent, ever asking question, learning from all who have made it work.
And above all, enjoy what you are doing, if you loose the enjoyment, you loose focus & the prize you were looking for at the outset.
All the very best.
Thanks for sharing Amanda!
