Milestones to Celebrate

Last Monday was my Mom's 100th birthday, so I flew to PA to help her celebrate that milestone. She is doing well and her mind is good, so that's a blessing. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a milestone as a "significant point in development," which sums up my moms birthday very well. Oh, the changes she's seen in 100 years of living! Despite all that she's accomplished over the years of her life, there are still some things that she wants to accomplish. Don't we all have those?

WA Milestones

In Wealthy Affiliate, we have those significant milestones too. We celebrate our accomplishments along the way whether big or small, because they are significant points in our learning and online marketing development. We get our sites active, get indexed by Google, write posts, have individuals leave comments, share our posts on social media, get organic traffic to our sites, start making sales, have new members sign up with WA, and then many members choose to start the process all over by building a new website once the original one is up and going strong.

Those are quite a few milestones, but like the goals that someone might have during 100 years of living, they take time to achieve. No, our goals here shouldn't take 100 years, but sometimes what happens can slow us down, take us on detours, cause us to re-think our direction, or totally change where we end up. Our goals and milestones may not happen as fast as we desire, but that's okay so long as we keep going and push through to reach the major and minor milestones. Like a farmer plants seeds and patiently waits for the crops to come up, we do the same here. We take action and we look and wait for the results to come.

Other Milestones

Meanwhile, while working on our sites and learning how to do what we want to do and how to build what we came to build, we are developing in other ways as well. Maybe you hadn't considered that. Think about it. Someone who has been impatient may learn how to become more patient while working through the training and applying it. So we also have the opportunity to develop (or hone) other aspects of our lives like our communication skills, goal-setting, planning, patience, determination, perseverence, and how we handle failures and successes. These too can be milestones for some.


Keep Celebrating!

So while you may be working on the training and on building your online businesses, whatever your goals are and whatever WA milestones you've accomplished here so far---way to go! Keep going and keep celebrating those milestones, because there will always be more to achieve, and we will always be molded and changed by the process of getting to where we want to go.

Have a productive WA week! :)

Thank you, Cecelia! I have asked many questions of others around here to get this far. So don't be shy. Let me know if you have any questions or if you want to brainstorm ideas. I've been here only since 2017, but I do know who the long-term members are who have done tutorials and who have generously shared their knowledge. Enjoy your journey! :)

Blessings!!

Hi Colleen, I am excited to be here on this amazing WA platform. I have a lot of hard work ahead of me to accomplish my goals. I enjoy reading blogs and posts also getting involved with there discussions. I’ve picked up quite a bit of gems (knowledge) by doing so. Thank you once again for offering your help. Have a Blessed Day!! Cecelia 🌸

Great! Lots to celebrate Colleen!

Thank you, Mike! Yes, there's a lot to be grateful for and to celebrate. I hope all is well with you. :)

That's a great milestone for sure. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, it is, William! Mom had a huge birthday milestone, but we will experience some large and small accomplishments of our own right here this week.

All the best to you!
Colleen

Great inspiration!! Especially for a Monday. Wish your Mom a very Happy Birthday!! And, enjoy every moment you can with her....

That's what I do, Irene! I do spend as much time with her as I can. I chat with her daily and visit often. I figured that her milestone achievement would encourage our milestone accomplishments.

Wow what a blessing for your mother to celebrate her 100th birthday and to still want to accomplish things. She is an example for all to follow, that despite her age she has not stopped.
Blessings

Yes, it's a blessing to see someone speaking up for others and wanting to help others no matter how small the task may seem. She's a good role model for doing our best and being our best no matter what our age may be. :)

Blessings,
Colleen

That’s fantastic Colleen and huge milestones! Congrats.
Joe

Thank you, Joe! We all have many milestones yet to achieve!

Thank you Colleen, you gave me direction on what to write and how to form my next post.

That's great to hear, Clifford! We never know how we might help one another around here, but that's what a community does. :)

Remarkable! Congrats to your mom,Colleen. Thanks for sharing. Quite Motivational...

Thank you, Beverly! I thought it would be a good way to start off the week. I'm glad you found it motivating. :)

Congrats to your mom for hanging in there for so long. Hope I do the same.

Milestones are always good to celebrate. We need to recognize the things that motivate us, and milestones is one of them. Good luck to you with your journey.

Thank you, Fran! You're right, milestones are motivating and definitely worth celebrating. You keep hanging in there, too.
All the best on your journey as well!
Colleen
