The #1 Secret to Success at WA: Focus on Learning!

Last Update: August 03, 2021

When you have success at WA, the top 2 questions you get asked are:

1. How long did it take you to start getting consistent revenue? and
2. What is the one lesson/tool/resource that got you where you are?

First, the answer to number 1 will probably be different for everyone. And when you think about it, no matter whether the answer was 1 day, 1 week, or 10 years, what effect does this have on YOUR business?

None.

The more you treat WA as a full time business the more you get out of it.

You can't hit it part time for 5 hours per week and then think to yourself, "When the revenue starts coming in, that's when I'll go all in with it."

It'll never happen that way.

And hey, if all you have is 5 hours per week some weeks, then absolutely take advantage of those 5 hours!

Life doesn't just change for us so we can learn something that can be life changing. Just be realistic with your expectations.

You can't expect to make full time income with part time effort.

But remember, EVERY LITTLE BIT YOU LEARN IS GROWTH.

That's why I tell every referral I have that their number 1 goal is to focus on learning. Focus on learning, and EVERYTHING falls into place.

Absorb every bit of training, complete every task. Don't change things on the fly or skip through lessons to accommodate what you think is a better way.

The training is laid out the way it is for a reason. Follow it!

I remember when I first began in January 2017 I decided I would follow the training to a tee for 6 months and then take inventory of what I had learned.

There would be no worries about commissions or revenue. The goal would be to simply learn.

And guess what?

Each and every day I was learning. I was hitting my goal. And you know what happens when you hit your goal? You're driven to push forward even harder.

I was addicted.

And right when I had almost forgotten about actually making money with this I remember seeing that email.

"Invitation Accepted!"

I had to ask around what that meant. Had I sent out an invitation? Was this spam?

It was Kyle who finally told me "yeah that means someone has joined through your affiliate link."

I sat at my laptop, went to my referrals, and there he was. Some random guy from like Ohio or something.

This was proof that someone had seen my content, and followed through the path I had laid out.

"It's really working..."

I said that over and over and over as I just stared at the screen.

Don't give yourself some imaginary deadline for making money. Give yourself a LEARNING deadline instead.

  • How quickly can I learn something I didn't know at the start of the day?
  • How can I apply this new training lesson to my website?
  • How can I make time to watch a live class or two during my week?

THIS IS THE SECRET TO SUCCESS AT WEALTHY AFFILIATE!

Every single super affiliate who makes it to Vegas threw themselves into the training and into the work.

Every single super affiliate got addicted to the training and became so stubborn with their success that they didn't stop.

No matter your niche, no matter your individual situation, believe me when I tell you, make your goal learning something new every day and HIT that goal, and you won't even recognize yourself in 6 months with all that you've learned.

And that is usually right when the magic happens.

YOU GOT THIS!

First I opened my scrivener file where I put WA things I want to keep, and I quoted this from you:

In other words, I REALLY like what you say here!

I totally agree you really have to dive in fully if you want to achieve your goals. And continuous training is the fuel that will get you there particularly since new things come out every day and old ways get changed constantly.

Thanks for the advice and motivation
