NEW MacBook Pro 2018 - My Vegas Gift!

Last Update: September 07, 2018

So, I made it to Vegas a couple of days ago:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/jerryhuang/blog/vegas-here-i...

But prior to that, I actually ordered a customized MacBook Pro 2018 a week before as a gift for myself making it to Vegas.

And, I just received it!


This thing is gorgeous man!

This is the first ever laptop that I bought myself. Prior to that, I was using an ASUS laptop my parents bought for me.

But, thanks to Wealthy Affiliate, I now have the ability to purchase my own Apple laptop.

Without WA, there's no other way for me to build up such passive income stream in a very short period of time, dropout from College, purchase my own customized MacBook Pro, end my long distance relationship & finally stay together with the girl I love and even plan to marry her next year.

It's impossible for me to express how grateful I am towards Wealthy Affiliate and how it has changed my life.

Honest Heart 2 Heart Talk!

Now, many of you have seen me sharing my WA success stories, and you've probably read many others' as well.

And you're always wondering...

How can I reach that level? Can it really work for me? What are the things I should & shouldn't do? Is there anything that I'm doing wrong?

Let me tell you the truth...

WA has ALL the necessary training, tools, resources and support for you to succed.

BUT, not many people can actually succeed and create a sustainable passive income stream.

In fact, most people FAILED!

Why is that so?

From my experience, I think the reason why you're still struggling is NOT because:

  • You don't have time
  • You suck at writing
  • You can't figure this out
  • You're making a lot of mistakes
  • You're too young or too old
  • Google doesn't seem to like your site, etc.

NONE of those reasons!

If you're struggling, no matter what problem you're facing, it's because of YOU!

Yes, YOU!

The reasons I listed above are just the different obstacles we all have to face along our journey to success. (Some of them are even just the excuses we gave)

There are more than enough resources, not just in WA, but the entire Internet to solve your problems, overcome your obstacles and help you succeed.

BUT, if you don't have the right mindset and you're not in the right STATE, most of the resources are just useless to you.

So, I think the MOST MOST MOST important factor for you to succeed is to be...

RESOURCEFUL!

We all have our own issues, problems, difficulties. But the ones who succeed are the ones who are resourceful enough to solve as many problems as they can along their journey.

Also, if you're not in the right state, you'll definitely quit at some point because of different obstacles you're facing.

Look!

I didn't succeed at my first website, neither the second or the third.

And, you DON'T NEED to succeed at your first website.

On the surface, I seem to achieve massive success in a very short period of time. But, what most people can't see is actually the countless hours, nights I spent in front of my laptop. And all the failures and problems I faced along my journey.

The reason I can achieve my current results is because I am:

  • Determined - I have clear and actionable goals
  • Consistent - I have the discipline to do what is necessary
  • Patient - I'm eager to succeed and make money but I'm willing to put in hundreds & thousands of hours of work despite I may not see any results YET (as long as I know I'm moving forward in the right direction)

That's it! These are the REAL SECRETS to success.

These may sound cliche to you but it's just the truth!

These are the intangible qualities you NEED to train WITHIN yourself.

Yes, step-by-step training and guidance are important. But they won't guarantee you to succeed. These internal factors will!

So, are you willing to do whatever it takes to brave through all the obstacles and stay consistent no matter what happens?

This is the most important question.

I'll leave you with this quote:

"When it comes to finding success, it's not about having the right answers. Instead, it's about asking the right questions."

Congratulations on the laptop!! It certainly is a gorgeous machine.

Just a question. How did you know when your first websites were not going to be successful and were failing? What made you decide to abandon them and start something totally new instead of just pushing ahead and continuing to make it work?
Are there things we should be looking out for so as not to spend countless hours pursuing something that may not be working out?

Very inspiring post!

Hey Joel! Someone has asked this question down the thread so I'll just copy my answer here:

"Great question Mary. There's no definitely answer to that. Just like everyone who just started on this journey, I serious didn't know when it was failing.

What happened to me was that I sort-of ran out of content ideas and I wasn't getting any results. So I moved one.

Most of the time we really don't know. Sometimes it's just gut feeling. We all have to figure it out one way or another. But just keep going no matter what."

Hey Jerry my man!

What stands out to me from this blog post is these three words/qualities:

Determined, Consistent and patient!

The last one being the most important.

Patience will get you there in a month, 6 months, a year or whatever time required.

However, you do need all three qualities to succeed!

Very wise words from a wise man!

Oh by the way, NICE computer! You deserve it!

Hey Jerry. Congrats on making it to Vegas! It's great to hear that thanks to WA, you are now able to live life like you want to.

I'm gonna go right out and say that The Macbook is AWESOME!!! Glad you decided on it. You'll love it!

I have had my Macbook Pro for over 6 years now (I bought mine in 2012). At that point in time, I needed it because I was going to university for Architecture, so I needed really good graphics and tools to be able to use in my classes. (And guess what? I actually also paid for it myself with my summer job savings).

But I dropped out of university after a while and after all this time, I still have it and it still works great! It's a great investment if you are able to buy one. You're going to be using it for years and years to come. I think I can still squeeze another 2 years from my own Macbook, at which time, I am looking to be earning enough from my website to buy myself a brand new one.

Always going to be a Macbook Lover!!! :)

I love your shiny new toy :) I would like to get me one of those when I start making full time income from my site. Right now I am on my very first site, first project, and although I am not making the kind of money I would like, this is still the beginning. I am not giving up. I invested way too much to just let it go. Giving up is not even in my mind frame. I just don't want to be one of those poor people who are here 3 years down the line and still struggling, that is MY fear, but it seems to be like everyone who stuck it out for more than a year or two is seeing some results. I am 10 months in, and so far I have made $50 - but time will tell.

In WA, I am grateful that we have all the tools, training, supportive community, etc in order to facilitate us to gain the knowledge, inspiration and motivation.
Whatever it takes, I realized and strongly believe that we need a mind set to achieve our goal. We must have a strong will power to achieve our goal and dreams.
Appreciate your point of view and what you mentioned here totally applies to what I have in mind.

I remember that I bought my Macbook air, I was happy with it. But now, 4 years later, only problems. I never had so many problems with a computer, and it also broke down 2 times. Both times within 4 months for putting it on standby. I had an Asus before and that was 100 times better. I will NEVER buy a rotten Apple again. You pay for the name, there is no quality about it, it is just garbage and way too expensive. I searched one day for "Apple garbage" and got a lot of results. I'm not the only one having problems with rotten Apple. To make things worse, I got disconnected from the internet many times a day. This was caused by the internet program Safari! I use Firefox now and the problem is solved. For the price of an Macbook, you can buy a much better Windows computer. Besides, many programs don't work on Mac but run on Windows. This was my first, and definitely the last Apple product I bought. I will tell everyone NOT to buy Apple. Don't be surprised if you get a message somewhere on the screen "click here to close this tab". It happened to me more than 1000 times. I wish you good luck with your computer.

Hi Alex, Write a product review on Apple Garbage with all the details. Wish you all the best for the business.

Jerry did a tremendous job and is working to marry his soul mate.
On the way to success, he has many choices to continue or change the Apple. But I am happy that he achieved what he wanted in the first year.

All the best Jerry. Looking forward to more success stories.

Bummer exerience to have with a Mac! My luck is completely different. 2008 15” MacBook Pro still going strong. 2011 17” MacBook Pro just now developed a hardware problem - one of the 3 USB ports is shorting out - that should be an easy repair. Both of these have blazing fast SSDs that I put in on day one and are used constantly. No Applecare ever purchased. My corporate PCs, usually Dells, would get swapped out every 2 years.
Reply
alexzw Premium
A very good idea to go for SSD memories: they don't break down because there are no moving objects. I have several HDD drives that broke down over the years and lost a lot of info. My macbook from 2013 got SSD and I'm glad I took it. SSD memory is not too expensive anymore. They prices keep going down. Too bad that I need special tools to open a mac to upgrade my memory. But I have a backup on an SSD, twice the memory as my macbook.

JohnD2018 Premium
I got my SSDs from OWC. They’re great, but actually, one of my 3 SSDs failed twice - write errors. I got both replaced for free. I have backup SSDs, plus the original Apple HDDs which were always used as backup drives.

My machines are old, but you can change the drives, RAM and battery easily. Next time I need to buy a Mac, I might not be able to do that with their ultra skinny newer machines.

Thank you, Jerry, for your excellent blog post and congratulations again for making it to Las Vegas, that's a fantastic achievement!

I hear what you are saying Jerry, I have been self-employed since I was 18 and I actually used to do jobs for people in there are gardens before I left school! To be successful you have to work hard, I believe that every millionaire has had failures in their life, which have helped to lead them to their success.

I have a few websites and some are more successful than others, the main thing is that we have to put effort and hard work into everything. I have seen your hard work and determination over the past few months Jerry and it is great to see someone as young as yourself succeeding, well done.

Enjoy your day.

We are determined, consistent, and pretty patient! It is all about the right mindset! Kathy was an RN and waiting for the semester to start to begin her Nurse Practitioner school. I got a call from the hospital where she worked saying I needed to come. She had fainted and was very disoriented upon BP normalizing. In a nutshell it took 2 years of physical therapy to get her walking and balance back to where she could walk using a walker. It took a year of speech therapy to get her memory, language,and speech to an acceptable level. We have lived your post, and I still stand beside her every day. Kathy is doing so well now. Yes, we agree that you must be determined, focused, and be positive. If a time comes that someone does hit a snag, a helping hand and positivity helps tremendously. Enjoy Vegas and your Mac laptop! Macs are incredible.

Thanks for your guidance,

Nice macbook, I love mine although it is a few years old now. As photographers we a canon and apple crazy family. You will love your mac. I totally agree with you on the reasons, I know when I am avoiding something, that it is me. The one question I have though, you say your first couple sites failed and you had to solve and re-adjust. At what point did you know they were failing? You have written an incredible amount of content, how much did you write on the failing sites before you knew it was time to make a change.

Congratulations on Vegas Jerry. If you have never been there, you will LOVE IT! I still have a desire to move there...and I am not into gambling beyond an occasional slot machine.

I bet you will purchase more MacBook Pros in the years to come. My first computer was a Compaq desktop computer with a floppy disk drive. WOW! That was old-school.

Then in the late 1990s I bought the first model of the Sony Vaio laptop. For that time period it was promoted as "Super-Slim" and it was, just not to today's standards.

I have been a fan ever since and I am currently on my 3rd Sony Vaio laptop. Powerful, Slim, Durable, Long Lasting, but expensive at around $1,700.00 to $2,000.00.

I am sure you will become a fan of the MacBook Pro just like I am with the Vaio. I think becoming a fan has to do with purchasing your first laptop and it being a quality pick.

Have fun in Vegas!

Jerry, nice laptop and again thanks for the honest and detailed advice,

You may soon find an additional niche on live bootcamp, similar to military basic training in the military where Jerry's Apprentices paid members will spend "hell week" at some wired camp (not Area 51) with Master Instructor Jerry with a bullhorn getting members to achieve success within the span of a week. Food and sleep time provided based on WA achievement level. Yet at the end of it, posing with those crisp diplomas for a group graduation will be such a thrill, A Wealthy Affiliate's proudest moment.

But seriously, your points are all insightful and actionable for our entire global community and it does show that you truly care about us.

Blessings!

Jerry, this is an awesome post. You perfectly described the old me. It would be impossible to count how many excuses I used for not being successful. Failure is no longer a viable option. The training here is out of this world. In my past I never had the step by step video's and articles that finally make sense to me. I am truly excited to learn. I no longer have to listen to "training by phone" given by someone who claims to be making a 6 or 7 figure income and couldn't care less if I made money or not. I cannot and will not fail with WA. Take care and thank you again.

"So, I think the MOST MOST MOST important factor for you to succeed is to be...

Jerry thanks for your words, I heard this word "RESOURCEFUL" from another mentor and it stuck in my mind. We need to find the ways to succeed no matter what, at whatever cost because it won't happen if we don't apply the three principles you just mentioned "Determination, Consistency, and Patience"

I am doing different things and so far they're working but it will take time, but since I want to retire from my full-time job, I will do anything to see my journey at WA come to a happy ending. Congrats Jerry, please don't stop sending those earning reports. Take care.

Sweet, congrats on the new laptop purchase and being renunited with your partner. Oh, and Vegas! Well-deserved from your determined efforts, man!

It sure proves that WA can help open various doors. :)

Quick question: Having just zoomed in on the WA dashboard on your laptop screen (lol), I notice you have an "Affiliate Summary". How do you activate that? Do you need so many Premiums?

And I also agree on your post. WA can meet us half way but it's down to us to adopt the daily disciplines and habits that are gonna get the life we want and need.

I've also failed numerous times. But starting over again a 4th time has made me more determined and focused than ever before.

The harder we work, the easier it gets. I remember when I first started WA, I absolutely hated writing reviews, and struggled to write 1 or 2 per week.

But once you force yourself to write an article or review every day, it becomes natural. Now I LOVE writing reviews! Lol.

Like you say Jerry, we need to get into the right mindset, otherwise we can't get anywhere. Plain and simple.

I only joined WA on June 14th 2018 so I am still what would be considered relatively new and I have been dedicated every day on writing content, learning and growing and I too have had hiccups along the way and will have a lot more I am sure.
I have goals, I tick them off as I move forward and write new ones to keep pushing me along.
I live by myself and I am my own motivator and the reason I keep going no matter what is my WHY
Everyone must have a giant WHY

Good advice jerry, I so want to succeed, and I'm trying so hard to be patient and keep a positive mindset. I know the guarantee of failure is to quit. I have to admit I'm getting very tired and this week the pain in my wrists and arms is really beating my resolve down. I'm depressed because I really cannot type without a lot of pain right now. I need to read all the positive posts I can right now to give myself hope. Congratulations on your new MacBook. I recently got a new Dell notebook and I'm happy or will be as soon as I can type without pain again. - Shirley

You will succeed, Ms. Dawson! Even if you have to take it slower that’s ok. I also have pain in my wrists, arms, and shoulders. It’s hard to type on any computer, whether tabletop or tablet, when your joints or tendons hurt. I have a brace for my dominant hand that supports and eases my pain. You need to look at Kirk’s blog and mine in a day or two. They should both touch on these issues. Wishing you the best!

Keep moving forward,

Yea Jerry.. Congratulations on your Macbook Pro!

That's what I have, except I purchased mine last year... I absolutely love it. I have been a Mac fan for years. They are expensive but definitely worth the price.

If at first we don't succeed, try, try, try again!

Our problems are within ourselves.. not having the confidence, thinking we're terrible writers, etc. These are all negative tapes that can run 'forever' in a person's mind.

You are right about being persistent, goal-oriented, and patient. We need to believe in ourselves and think positive. There will be disappointments... this is how we learn.

Thanks Jerry... very encouraging!

Have lots of fun with your new Macbook Pro.. it's much lighter to carry too!
