I have written about this issue before but because of all the questions I see here and also some confusion about what this Wealthy Affiliate program is supposed to be, I felt the need to come at this one more time.

We are so fortunate to have found our way here to Wealthy Affiliate. This program is so well designed and presented that we cannot help but succeed if we follow the program. It is kind of like going to a restaurant that serves huge quantities of very good food. "If you leave hungry, it is no one's fault but your own." Therefore, if you do not succeed here it is no one's fault but your own.

This doesn't have to be a long and complicated blog. I am simply going to list the things I think we all need to do on a consistent basis to put ourselves in a position to succeed. I may miss some things and if I do, I hope that some of you will comment and add your own items to the list.

  1. Join Wealthy Affiliate as a free starter member.
  2. If you like what you see, upgrade to Premium.
  3. Follow all the training in the Certification Courses
  4. Complete each lesson.
  5. Do each task with each lesson.
  6. Do NOT skip around.
  7. Take your time, this is not a race.
  8. Learn all you can.
  9. Ask Questions when you need help.
  10. Apply the things you learn to your websites and your business model.
  11. Constantly be looking for and become aware of other income streams.
  12. Practice your writing, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE.
  13. Research the information you want to impart on each post and page.
  14. Make sure you understand keywords and how and when to use them.
  15. Learn how to make and insert videos on your websites.
  16. Engage on different social media platforms.
  17. Learn how to capture client emails and then how to use that for future business.
  18. Consistently publish posts and pages on your websites.
  19. Periodically go back and review the training to make sure you are doing it right.
  20. NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP!!!!!!

So, there is my list, the things I try to do as I travel this road toward the success goals that I have set for myself. We all have different definitions of success and that is great. The important thing to keep in mind is that each day you are doing something that is moving you in the direction of what you define as success for you.

You have to remember that you are starting your very own business here at WA. You are the CEO and also the worker bee. It takes time, sometimes a lot of time. It takes effort, a lot of effort. It takes hard work, lots of hard work. And lastly, it takes determination. Practically no business of any description takes off to success with in a few days and with little or no effort. Keep at it, it is your new job, your new career, YOUR road to success.

I am anxious to see what other things you guys would add or delete from the list I have provided. Maybe together we can come up with a sort of road map to help others travel through the WA platform as they gradually become the successes we all hope to be someday.

Blessings to all:

Frank

Put yourself on a schedule and don't deviate.
Great reminders for me.
Thanks Frank

Thank you so much James. Another thing that I should have added to the list. If we don't make a good plan, a good schedule and then as you say "stick to it" we will never move forward as quickly or efficiently as we might hope.

Great post, Frank. Personally, I have a problem engaging on social media. Most of it turns me off. Something I have to work on.

Same with me Grant. However, Kyle and Carson would not be promoting it if it was not a good thing for us to be doing. So, I guess we have to bite the bullet and make it happen.

Great blogs. I can't think of anything to add. I know it takes a lot of determination to reach our goals. I think, and this just my opinion, a lot of people shoot for success right from the start. They get upset when it doesn't come as fast as they want it too.
By setting short term goals, they won't get overwhelmed and give up before they even get started. By taking smaller bites there's less confusion and more gratification. Loved what you had to say.

Thanks for the insightful comments Don. I should have mentioned something about the setting of achievable goals. One step at a time, one goal at a time. It is a never ending journey.

That sounds about right Frank, just make sure we finish each lesson no matter how long it takes.

Correct Fred. Time is not what this is about. The most important thing is that we learn everything there is to learn within each lesson. One lesson at a time, one task at a time.

Nice list, and the most important one is, #20. Never, never give up!
Reply

Thanks Gomer. You are also correct. The only way that we are sure to fail is to give up. So NEVER, NEVER, NEVER give up.

Thanks Alex, Not really sure if it a complete list, just my opinion and the things that I try to do. You will most probably find additional things that work well for you. Good Luck and God Bless.

You're welcome John. Not sure about being "on the ball" but I try. There are lots of things that I can certainly do better. Every day is a new chance to move forward and take another step toward my goals. That is what all of us should be trying to do every day.

Thanks for the tips.Success is like a long distance race and not a hundred meter dash!!!!

Excellent analogy Sunday. This is a long distance run. Not a race with a finish line but a journey, a never ending journey that just gets better and better if we just keep going and working hard.

Remember you have to digest it one bite at a time Frank!
Reply
FTurner8032 Premium
You are right of course Michael. One bite at a time is how we eat the elephant. I always mention that this takes time and hard work. I think too many want immediate gratification and believe they should get something for next to nothing.
