Points To Ponder--“Ever stop to think, and forget to start again?” Huh?

Last Update: March 31, 2014

Okay.... breathe, take a five minute break, walk away from your computer, go for a walk, play with your child or pet if you have one, call or talk to someone, exercise, meditate, eat, pray or just simply close your eyes, listen to your breathing, and relax. Whatever your case may be, whether you're a newbie or an expert in the world of internet marketing--- you'll come to a point where you felt completely overwhelmed and lose focus.

A couple hours ago, I went online to get some ideas about adding Wealthy Affiliate's testimonial page on my very first website creation. This put me in range of interesting blogs, new sites worth checking out, blog comments, training course, Facebook likes, follows, new plugins which I felt morally compelled and excited to apply what I just learned. Now I can't even remember the fact I was checking:-) Dementia? Alzheimer's? Beauty of multitasking? Nah...none of the above. It's a symptom of overwhelm called "inattentional blindness" the failure to notice a fully-visible, but unexpected object because attention was engaged on another task, event, or object. I'm almost certain everyone has experienced this, too. In my case, from time to time being a "newbie" here in the Wealthy Affiliate community, I find myself unable to focus on what I am trying to accomplish and get easily side tracked or distracted. The enormous amount of educational training, blogs, chats, and support of fellow Wealthy Affiliate members can be a bit overwhelming and the next thing I know, a few hours have already gone by. On a positive note, I may have lose my focus on what I'm trying to accomplish, but at the end, upon gaining back momentum-- I take pride of myself for being able to apply that knowledge, taking action, and seeing results in due time. Aside from increasing the number of "follows" while browsing, it brings me joy and a smile on my face when I receive a message reply from fellow Wealthy Affiliate member. Believe me, I learn something new every single time I go online. It may have taken me longer than normal to reach or accomplish one goal or at times felt frustrated but if you believed something is worth doing, you just do the best you can, try to enjoy what you're doing and make the best out of your journey into the world of affiliate marketing.

In closing, ever stop to think, and forget to start again? Well folks, forget that! Humor me:-)

Have a prosperous and enjoyable journey at Wealthy Affiliate community!

Love and Light,

Agnes Grace

Hi Agnes,

Having read through this article I do face the same challenge. And I have come to a point to reply all the message to the best that I can from the bottom of my heart cause I know all the people or you called it fellow WA community are genuine and all of us are here to learn from each other.

Do continue your effort in blogging your thoughts and sharing the knowledge what you may come across that is beneficial to the community. And feel the authority off our niche so that you can develop a product that you will be able to motivate and inspire other in a different way.
