It Has Been A While And I almost Quit

Last Update: March 15, 2019

I have been going through a very difficult few weeks. This resulted in my lost of my desire to keep up the momentum to stay on tract.with my business.

I have been away for few weeks due to the sickness and death of a very close family friend.this has left me very disheartened.

As much as I love Wealthy Affiliate, and believe in the potentials that awaits us if we stay on tract and work heard. I came very close to putting this business on hold because of my financial strain coupled with the emotional turmoil that I have been going through.

I will take my own advice about not giving up. Working hard to staying in the game is now my new mindset.

My plan is to work hard so that this business will be very successful This is by taking it one day at a time, one week at a time or one month at a time and see what the future brings.

One of my goals, now, is to build up my muscles of positive thinking each and every day by disciplining myself and find a way to pay up for six months or one year.this way so that I do not have to worry about the monthly payments.

I really appreciate the training in Wealthy affiliate, the privilege of reviewing the lessons and going at my own pace. I must remember that no one is pressuring me to succeed by a particular date

I am open to and appreciate any advice from my Wealthy Affiliate community about any ideas that can help me to monetize my blog. I cannot seem to come up with anything at this time, Anyway, I am doing my research.

Wealthy Affiliate, it is great that I can always reconnect with you and pick up where I left off or start over.

Losing dear one's is very hard on the emotions. I have experienced it too many times, and if I keep on living it will come around again.
I work and sometimes it could be a lot of hours and sometimes not. Just keep trying. You can learn here at WA. Good luck and may you have good thoughts.

Hi Joan....I am in the same place. I am rethinking my membership and feel your article has really resonated with me. I have lost focus and need to get back on track. Thank you for sharing.

Like you have realised that it is better to take a step at a time and to try to keep my workload at a sensible level. A simple daily or weekly plan with just one or two objectives is starting to work for me.
Take care

Sometimes it's better to take a step back when
we live in very intense and difficult emotional
situations. Get back on top as you can and
WA and its community will always be there to
support and help you move forward.

Have a nice weekend!

Hi Joan, I understand somewhat, you are going through, I have spent several months in the same place. It is very hard to get motivated, but try and hang in, WA is such an awesome opportunity and can make such a difference in your life if you make a success of it. Like you say, there is no schedule, and you can work at your own pace. If you are able to swing the yearly membership, it makes a big difference, less pressure!
What is your niche?
Take care and stay positive, all the best.
Hey Joan,

Keep up the great work.

There is nothing wrong with taking a break to deal with family issues.

This is how you create balance in your life.

Just remember why you started with WA in the first place.

Where there's a passion, there's a way.

My advice is to never give up.

Blessings always

Hi Joan, you are doing really great. Sometimes life throws obstacles in our way and we have to step back from what we are doing. Taking a break is not a bad thing, sometimes we can step away, get a second wind and come back with even more gusto. I wish you all the best in your journey here at Wealthy Affiliate.
