I think the theme that we have been working around here is that it takes work and it takes time. I wanted to share something that my dad taught me…

I was fresh out of the military and I was starting college to get my Psychology degree. Little did I know that my dad was going back to school as well - so I started a conversation with him.

Hey Dad - What classes are you taking?I am just taking one class at a timeDad, that’s going to take you 10 years to graduate!!!!

My dad responded - Yes it is, but ten years are going to pass...

I can either have the degree after those ten years, or ten years will pass and I will be right where I am now - I am choosing to have a degree.

What are you going to choose?

What are you going to do with your dreams?

It may take one course at a time for you - but keep plugging away! You can do this, you got this!

So true. As time passes it is better to be more knowledgeable than to not just pass the time with out gaining any knowledge about the things you want to learn about.

It’s great that you brought this up because I have a big project to get out early next week and it’s going to take some overtime.

That also means I won’t be able to finish some articles I am working on, or finish them as quick as I was planning but I will keep going and eventually reach my destination.

Thanks,
Rick

Your dad is a wise man. I will be 55 this year and I just started this program. I have ZERO experience with anything like this. I just knew that I wanted to do something online to generate extra money. So here I am and learning so much not just about affiliate marketing but about myself. I hope it won't take me 10 years, I'm just glad I started.

Loved your post, it really touched me. Thank you
