Only Two Weeks? Seems Like a Lifetime When Will I Be a Butterfly?

Last Update: November 12, 2015


I'm impatient, and I would be the first to admit it. I want everything yesterday, And sometimes I make the mistake of thinking I can master something faster than I actually can. And when I find out I can't I can become frustrated pretty fast too, and then get demoralized. Ever feel that way?

I've also proved to myself that I can go the distance but only if I keep a tight rein on myself. And that is exactly what I find I'm already needing to do here at Wealthy Affiliate – and I can see it's what I need to keep doing if I am going to get where I'm looking to go. It's hard stuff – mostly because I keep coming up against me at every turn.

Right now I'm about to finish Lesson 3 of Course 2 and in order to pass that lesson and continue I am being instructed to post my website for feedback. Scary stuff because Yes, they actually want me to post this pathetic, undone site for people to look at and comment on even though I can't figure out how to write the reviews yet, can't decide if I chose the "right" theme and have so far, completely failed in my efforts to make the theme act and "look like the screen shot" that was shown to market it.

I know it isn't there yet. I know google would not even give it a second look and no one is going to click on my affiliate link if they do happen upon it (in fact, even though I added that link, I don't think it shows up as a link yet!).

And there you have it. What I'm up against today is my fear of people judging me.

But wait a minute, I tell myself, just slow down here. They aren't judging me, they're looking at the site to give me the gift of valuable feedback. Feedback like what I may have missed or what I might need to redo or do better – to give me the opportunity to be successful.

And, all I need to do is listen and implement their advice to the best of my ability and then, maybe, just maybe, one day Google will ask me out on its first page.

Hang in here everyone!

All the best,

Isabella

That is SO me!! My website is up, but I am still trying to figure everything out. It is really not ready to be out there for everyone to see yet. I have been working on mine for 2 weeks as well :-) I think patience is the key, and don't get discouraged!! We will get there and will be up and running in no time :-)

Just a huge word of encouragement that meant the world to me when I received it, and holds me up every time I get to that hard place. It was a picture of a young kid with his arms crossed looking as intently as one could at the camera, and these words typed above his head. "I know I'm somebody, because God don't make no junk." Isabella, I really enjoy when you speak from the heart, because its genuine & real, and for some reason I can always relate to since I have at one time felt that way too. I will face the risk as well, www.downtoearthmarketingonline.com, I will check yours out too, and give you some positive feedback.
Peter never would have known that he could walk on water too if he had the faith if he never got out of the boat. Keep stepping out Isabella, and you are going to go further than you ever thought possible. :)
