I thought I was getting involved with WA to make money. I would create a website. I would then link it to affililiates. Then the money would start to flow. Then I would be happy.
What I found instead was that the critical part of my new journey was not the money but the relationships that I have developed along the way. I have met people from all over the world. I have met people with an endless variety of interests. I have met people who unselfishly help me when I need help in developing my website, Google+ account, etc.
I have a new purpose for my life. This purpose is to create value in the lives of every body I interact with every day. Whether it is here at WA, at work, or with my family, the most rewarding thing is when I give to others. When I give unselfishly to others, an incredible thing starts to happen. My life starts to work perfectly. Everything flows just as it should. Bottom line is that when I give, I get back double in return.
So the illusion is that I thought I had to make money first in order to be happy. The truth is that happiness comes from serving others and I know, if I do this, wealth will follow.
