You can't have your cake and eat it too
Many times, I find writing therapeutic, and I therefore often write from the perspective of what I need to hear today. Today is definitely one of those days.
I've read several blog posts lately about staying focused, and what to do if you lose focus. Keep churning out quality content regularly, and the traffic will come. Even others have reminded me that there will be times when you just don't feel like writing, and it's OK to take a break, or even write extra when you feel like it, and you will have plenty to post during the dry spells. This is all great advice.
For me, lately I have felt somewhat of a dry spell. I needed to take a small break away from my writing to focus on other family issues, only to find myself not posting to my blog for over 2 weeks. While I understand that at times we must take a break, sometimes I just have a hard time coming back.
So, starting today, I'm reminding myself why I signed up for WA. My goal is to someday be able to support my family through my writing, and be able to leave the corporate world. However, if I give up now, I will never accomplish that goal, nor will I even come close.
But that's where the cake comes in. See, I want to see that traffic come in, and see those results from my site. But, I keep putting off writing new content, so that won't happen. You cannot have your cake and eat it too. You must do the work of creating your OWN cake before you can have the cake and eat it too.
As many have eluded to on WA, there are several things you need to do on your own if you are to succeed as an affiliate marketer or writer. I'm sure you are all familiar with what these mean, so I will leave you today with these reminders and some great illustrations of what it takes to achieve your goals, both in life, and on WA:
Have a great day everyone!
