The Most Difficult Thing to do at Wealthy Affiliate

Last Update: March 27, 2018

We are all here to make a positive change in our lives. We want to become independent, no longer tied to the traditional day job and we have financial goals that we would like to achieve. I know I certainly do.

Fortunately we have all found Wealthy Affiliate which I truly believe will help everyone here achieve those dreams and goals more than anything else that's out there. There's such a treasure trove of information and training here that will get you started on the right path and we all do start on that path.

The problem though comes later on down that particular path and I can tell you that I still struggle with it a lot as have MANY other members here. It can be such a struggle that Kyle himself has decided to help some of those with that struggle so that they can be successful with their online business.

What is the big significant struggle that someone encounters at one point or another on their path to success? That struggle is taking CONSISTENT ACTION. If we want to reach our goals and put into practice what we've been learning in the training here at Wealthy Affiliate, we have to take action! It's imperative that you do it in order to reach your goals. If you are not taking action, you're not going to get anywhere.

Let me tell you, there's all kinds of stuff that comes up that it seems like it's the intention of all of them is to keep us from taking action because I can certainly tell you that once you jump off of that consistent action train, it can be VERY difficult to get back on. It has to be done however, so you have to find the thing to motivate you to keep pushing forward, even if it's the last thing you want to do. If that means looking at that aweful credit card or medical bill to remind you how much money you DON'T have to try and pay it, then that's what you have to do. Afterall, you're here to make a positive change in your life, correct?

Trust me, I have that struggle even today. I started getting back on a consistent plan of action, but it slowed down quite a bit the last week and a half and I'm trying to speed it back up again. I know a lot of us think that we can't write, or that our posts/articles will not attract any visitors to our websites, but if we don't do anything then that's exactly what will happen. With some of the newer tools that are here at WA, how can you fail? SiteContent is absolutely amazing and I've been using it A LOT these last few months. I've created more 1,000+ word posts consistently since I've been using SiteContent, than at any other time in the history of my website and it is easier than a lot of people think.

I'll give you a good example. I've been working on a post for nearly two weeks now that is tied to an experience in one of the products I use in my niche. I've been writing it after I have completed or experienced a certain section of this product, but I haven't been in that product very much in the last two weeks so I haven't been able to finish that article/post in a timely matter as it is still a work in progress. So I'm thinking to myself, "If it's taking me this long to complete that post, I'll never be able to come up with another post in a quicker fashion especially one that can reach 1,000+ words."

Guess what? A MAJOR product in my niche was released today and I actually went out and bought it and it gave me a GREAT idea for a new post. Even though I haven't been able to experience this product yet, it gave a great idea for a keyword that I was able to research for on Jaaxy and I actually created a 1,200 word post in under 10 minutes, I just have to put the finishing touches on it and get it posted. The most important thing there is that I took action and I took action when an idea popped into my head! Once you start writing, you'll be surprised just how many words can actually get into your post.

Taking action is the only way we're going to succeed here even when it feels like nothing is moving or nothing is happening. Trust me, if you do it long enough, I promise you, something WILL happen and it just might surprise you when it actually does.

You are so right. Doing something is better than nothing. Consistency is the key to success. I have lots of unfinished posts that have yet to see the light of day but it hasn’t stopped me writing totally new ones.
With Grace and Gratitude

I totally agree with you that failure to take consistent action or procrastination is one of the greatest enemies of success. Many a times we wait too long before we decide to take action and this leads to time wastage on our side. Thanks so much for this insight.
