My odyssey thus far
When I began with WA roughly one month ago, I had great expectations of getting right after it and making Kyle and Carson very proud of my efforts and my progress. But,as with so many others who begin a trek with great expectations, there were "bumps" in the road and real dragons behind the trees.
Alas, I did not keep up with my own expectations. A kind of existential angst began to set in -- that is until I received some very good advice and guidance from Neil (we know him as "NeBro"). He really helped me regain my focus and remain committed to my goal.
You see, there is a definitive urgency to my securing a solid and continuous funding stream for my family-- so there is no such thing as "quit" or "put off until tomorrow". But that is not in my DNA anyway.
So I quit feeling sorry for myself that I was not in the Top 300 in the first three weeks! And I got back up on my horse (metaphorically,of course) and started to live those words with which I end all my responses to my brethren in the WA Community -- "Press On!"
I mean, why write it if I don't LIVE it -- the inauthenticity of such a practice would not be something with which I could live.
At any rate, I have just completed Course 2 for certification, have 634 in my network, really love my website, and have a renewed enthusiasm with and for WA.
Oh, there are challenges ahead,of course, but I am convinced now more than ever that even with the daily family load I carry, I am going to succeed!
My wife expects it of me, my children believe it of me, and, most of all, I am not going to let myself down in this monumental,but ultimately rewarding odyssey.
There is just too much riding on it!
And I know that all the help, advice, support, and encouragement one needs to succeed with WA is right here in the strength of the WA Community.
So...as I admonish others...Press On!
I know I will...
