Seek and Find: One week update.

Last Update: August 19, 2014

I joined a week ago. I have learned so much. I have had a feeling of "rightness" since this started, and I've been looking for that "intuitively right" feeling.

My Dad was in sales, and I learned early about positive thinking. So, in recent years, I responded to movies like "The Secret" and "What the Bleep do we know?" I do daily practices like goal setting, inspirational reading, gratitude, meditation, mind treatment/positive prayer, visioning, and affirmations. But none of this works unless you take action, and how do you do that if you aren't sure what action to take?

Well, you stay open, you ask Spirit, you seek, and you keep seeking. You listen to your gut, or wherever you hold those intuitive feelings. Oprah calls them "Aha moments" I think. Some people feel chills go up their arms. It differs. But I believe there is a part of us that is connected to something bigger, and that something is connected to everything else and everyone else, so wisdom and answers are there if we ask.

I had to trust that Spirit knew the right time. I felt frustrated... but I wasn't sure what steps to take. So I kept asking for guidance. I have a job that is fulfilling and pays a good hourly wage and is a service. But I don't work a lot of hours, and I need more income. So I was asking. And I wanted something flexible, somewhere where i could use my writing skills.

When you ask like that, you get feelings about actions to take. it is important to act on them, so I kept researching online. I would hear about something, check it out, find a scam, see that as a stop sign or detour sign, and keep fine-tuning. But I was getting closer and closer. And when I found Wealthy Affiliate I was astonished at the Abundance here, at the generosity of spirit. The ethics were what I'd been looking for. Kyle talks about getting inspiration from each other, but "never copy." As a writer, I appreciate that. I worked hard in Journalism school and in Public Relations. I don't like it when people steal from writers. Help is the norm here.

I haven't progressed as far as some in one week, I'm sure. We all have our own pace. I am learning a lot of new things, and I am the kind of person who tends to avoid all things "techie," so my progress is slow. But it IS progress! It IS getting done! I DO have a webiste pretty much built! I am so grateful to Kyle and Carson for creating this "place" and making this do-able. And I am grateful to all of you: the wise ones with the generous sage advice, the newer ones who relate and encourage, the other really fresh newbies like me who are stepping out, excited and maybe a little scared but brave. I relish the attitude that there is room enough for all of us. May we all have the success we desire.

Oh, did I mention I "went premium"? Of course I did!

Thank you so much KMangin! I was just tearing my hair out about technical issues, more than one of them. Decided I need to shut it down for awhile, and saw your comment before logging off. YOU have just inspired ME to keep going with this! (But maybe not right now. Me and the computer are both overheated. :-l

I find the videos very easy to understand most of the time and I'm not a computer expert by any stretch of the imagination. I do use my computer and laptop a lot, I also failed enough times at marketing on the internet, but a long the way I managed to pick up a thing or two. However my many mistakes on the technical side have given me a good foundation and I believe that is part of the reason I am able to follow along the training videos with relatively no problem so far. So I said all of that to say, lol that I know it can be overwhelming and frustrating at first but as long as you keep at it you will get better and learn from every mistake gauranteed. You already have a gift that most marketers don't have but I personally feel is much more valuable. That talent is your ability to connect and pull people into your story with your words and writing ability. I don't think that is something that can be learned but the technical stuff very well can be. If ever you need a hand feel free to reach out I'm here to help in anyway that I can. I wish you much success in your future endeavors I know you will reach your goals.
