My Limitations and Life experience

Last Update: February 08, 2014

I have been having doubts. I guess its normal when you are just starting out.

Its not really doubts... Its more worrying than anything else. You see I come to wealthy affiliate after looking for ways to make money online. There is a bit of desperation in my case. I have a few years of decent experience in the fitness industry but other than that not much.

I had to go through a period of unemployment for 1.5 years and now I'm in a job that I'm not very excited about.

I do not have friends (Like absolutely none). I'm not socially anxious, just find that people tend to perceive me in a certain way that I can't agree with... They give permission for me to give up. And they treat me like a lovable loser. I'd rather be friends with people who encourage me to fight for my future, but I couldn't find any. To be honest I was mostly focusing on spending my time figuring out my way out of the crisis on my own rather than looking for friends.

I don't have delusions about my current position in my life. But after trying really hard to return into fitness industry (I'm talking 300 job applications) I only had 4 interviews. And only 1 interviewer actually called me back and said that they really wanted to hire me, however they were under the pressure to hire someone with qualifications to do classes.

So I'm kinda stuck working in a part-time finance position right now. I love the company, but I don't love my job. I'm hoping I can make a serious income online to get myself out of the gutter.

Now I'm somewhat limited in what I can do. Because I had no social life - I don't have any pictures of myself. If I create a profile on facebook - it will be instantly apparent I don't know anyone. Also I only have average social skills and slightly above average fitness knowledge and experience.

I am willing to go and study more on fitness - but that requires me to actually make money. Part time job doesn't pay very well. I might also need to hire professional photographers.

Considering I want to be in the fitness niche I'm worried that might be a problem.

I really have no idea yet in regards to how hard it is to make money with affiliate marketing...

But even with something like 100$ a month I could make very significant progress. I am willing to work hard but right now I can't make youtube videos or get pictures of myself, or even get a fitness course.

Best I can do is online research...

If I am honest I want to ask if 100$ a month is possible with just writing high quality articles and no pictures/youtube videos.

But I realize my question is actually me needing encouragement to go on rather than an actual answer.

Anyone can relate to having doubts about your ability on this website? Would really help if you could share. Thanks!

Ok I just looked up "Dzark" in Google plus and it pulled up 9 different people... and since you dont have a profile pic of yourself (hint hint) I dont know which one is you. It might be easier if you go in and add me, just search Carrie Galloway and I used the same pic that I have on here...

I had a google account for a while, I probably need a new one as that one mostly used for youtube and on a different subject from fitness.

Ok.. Just made one. If I'm correct my new Google+ account is under the same nickname Dzark.

You can add me now :)

I cannot imagine that everyone on here doesn't experience some doubts sometimes, that is just part of being human, plus this is most definitely a road less traveled. It seems from your post here that you are sort of "pulling" from a somewhat negative place inside of you and we have got to switch that around in order for you to get somewhere with this. There has to be something that really lights a fire under you and puts you in a great mood... so what is it?

If I knew what lit a fire under me, I wouldn't be here on wealthy affiliate looking for it. :)

May be learning new skill can actually help me discover what it is. Anyways, thanks for "pulling" me to a positive place!

I'm sure its just doubts coupled with some insecurities, I'll feel better once I see my work here bear fruit...

I completely agree that is it better to have no friends than to have shitty friends who do not support you. It is extremely courageous to make the decision to go it alone like that, and I believe that if you have the guts to do that, then you can do anything.

I can relate to having doubts. Absolutely. Sometimes I feel like my doubts have doubts of their own, but I have to ignore them. I came to the conclusion that if other people can do this, then surely I can too...I think you just have to focus on where you're heading, rather than where you are.

Keep my eyes on my goal and my mind on overcoming obstacles rather than avoiding them. I like that. Thanks, Shelly!

Well.. honestly..not only here but in every areas of life you need to have a positive approach for getting success and if you are asking me if building a website and earn with WA is possible?, of course it is!, but without patience, learning and consistency.. I don't think anything could work..

Thanks! I'm just really new to this, going through my training program.. Obviously its too early to see results. I just tend to over think things sometimes and worry instead of putting my energy into something productive.

I guess its normal when learning new skill... Thanks for reply, you get a follow! :)
