What if you are afraid

when starting the journey here at WA, you are going to learn a lot of new things or how to do things in a different way. What if you are afraid to learn new things and put them into practice. This will be the biggest hurdle for most to overcome when they are starting their business.

Hurdles to overcome

I am a Scout leader and we went to a State Park near us. The kids are at a different level of athletic and confident abilities in the water. This park is very different as the water can be very shallow with big holes to jump into off of the rocky base.

As I watched a couple of my Scouts climb up on the rock and look down at the water and step back down, I thought of the many people who come to WA and see some things they have to do to be successful.


How do you overcome these Hurdles



Both of the boys that I was watching were swimmers, they were not afraid of the water. They stood one at a time on the top of the rock looking down. I shouted and pointed for them to just jump in. One other boy stood in the water below to show them how far to jump out to get to the deeper water and not touch the bottom.

The boys keep hearing encouragement and instructions from their peers. Finally one of the two boys jumped off into the water. Then he encouraged the other boy to jump and he did. Then the merry-go-round started and they just jumped in and swam and waded back to the rock to jump again.

How does this relate to WA

Just think back to when you first started at WA and looked at the training, The number of the lessons will be overwhelming at first. There will be many things that you will have to try for the first time.

How will you get the courage to build that first website, write that first 1000 word post, put your information on the social media networks, make that first video for YouTube or talk to people you don't know about your offers.

Use the same principle as the boys. Use the people here at WA to encourage you, teach and show you how to do the task or answer you questions about how to do your task.

Ask someone how far out you have to jump to get into the deep water, listen to others that have done the task before. Learn from watching or listening to others that have done the task before.

Have fun, don't make it too hard

The boys had plenty of fun swimming, jumping and climbing on the rocks. You can make your website an enjoyable journey by just getting the right help and encouragement right here at WA.

Don't be afraid to ask questions, learn new things or step out on the edge of that rock and jump into the water. With the proper knowledge, knowing how deep the water is, your journey will be a success.

Thanks for ready if you got this far.

And do always make sure the water is deep enough. A young friend of mine dived of a pier but the tide had gone out! Not a nice conclusion.

Just make sure you have planned and then dive into writing.

They had a friend in the water telling them where the water was deep enough.

Good planning.

You definitely need to be open to learning A LOT with online business, John, Alan

Great post, to which I am sure we can all relate.

Great comparison. It is hard to jump in and do some of the things. I need to take your advice and rely on others other for support to do so. Thanks.

With all the support available here at WA, you should not have any trouble finding out where to jump in.
John

You are so right.

Hi John,

Thank you for your sharing.

For me, I approach new learning to fulfill my curiousity.
And while learning (most of the time trial and error), I am thinking of how I will be able to help someone in the same situation. This normally motivates me to continue.

I remember when I first read a notice for 'flower arrangement' classes. I got curious.

While preparing the needed items, I received some comments, for example: "You are so busy working in the hospital, why do you want to learn about flower arrangement. And when will you find the time"

To fulfill my curiousity, I was not going to be stopped.

After learning and practicing what I learnt, I found out that arranging flowers relaxed my mind from the busy-ness of hospital work, acting as a stress reliever.

I also felt greater satisfaction when women I shared the knowledge with started earning income for their families.

With WA, I am trying to fulfill my curiousity with all that happens online.

So, I once again want to show my gratitude to Kyle and Carson.

After learning they did not keep the knowledge to themselves. They are now sharing with all of us through the trainings and their sharing.
They have also enabled us like one big family to encourage and help each other across the globe.

Learning new things should not be feared but embraced, because it gives the opportunity to help change lives for the better.

In order to get comfortable we have to be uncomfortable for example, try putting your right thumb over your left thumb see what happens -

You want to put your thumb in the comfortable position, if you practice placing your right thumb over your left thumb you will soon get used to that position.

Its not that hard to make changes in our lives if we are willing to be uncomfortable for a while.

Great post

John, a great post! True, sometimes it looks further down than it is!
But you're right...jump in!
Thanks

Joe,
Having the proper people encouraging you, will help you reach your goals no matter what they are.

We should never be afraid to learn new things. Knowledge is power! Thanks for sharing Chris and thanks for being a scout leader too. This younger generation needs what you can teach them.
You also got some great niches within what you are doing. Good luck and much success to you in all your online endeavors.

Making a living, making a difference.

My name is John, Chris is my son, he is one of the scouts in the pictures. If they work hard, we could have four new Eagle Scouts by next summer.
