Affiliate Analogy - Y is for Yoga
Affiliate Analogy Continues….
Y is for Yoga
Yoga is such a popular exercise. Everyone who is into fitness and good health highly recommends it. So, naturally, I had to try it. At the time, I worked in a fitness center and wanted to be a good example for my clients. I loved to exercise so this seemed like a logical fit. Unlike lifting weights, Yoga presents itself as being non-abusive to your body. It is all about stretching and peace….getting in touch with your inner self, which affects the outer body. It sounds so beautiful and simple.
I was picturing something like this, which I knew I could do.
However, the people in my class looked like this.
They were posing in complicated stretches, twisting and turning their bodies into pretzels! That is not what I signed up for…nor would my body move like that in a million years! I was unfamiliar with the movements and practice that Yoga requires.
Well, the truth of the matter is that if I didn’t quit and stayed with the program, I would have succeeded. I would have progressed a little each time with the proper training. I would have learned what I needed to learn. My muscles….and mind…would stretch with each session and eventually succeed at the most complicated poses.
I felt the same way about starting a blogging website. It’s a perfect fit…I’m opinionated…I like to write….it sounds so simple….create a website and start writing. A few years ago, I did create a blog and start to write. I paid for the domain name and the hosting. This was going to be fun! .
As we all know, there is so much more to it than that. I wrote a few blogs but no one ever read them but me. I had no idea the work needed to get followers. I was clueless about keywords and SEO.
It takes a platform like Wealthy Affiliate to give us the training, tools, and support to learn how to be successful at building an online business. When I first joined as a starter member, I thought this was going to be easy. I never realized the amount of work and time needed to succeed. Even now, it would be easy to quit. However, each lesson stretches my mind. I learn things I didn’t think I could. Step by step, I gain more confidence. I gave up on Yoga, but I will not give up on succeeding online.
With the support of Wealthy Affiliate….all that it offers….all the motivation we receive from each other….we can succeed.
