If At First You Don't Succeed, Dust Yourself and Try Again
Wow! What a ride to get here. False starts, doubts, fears, baby steps, falling down hard, getting up and crawling again. Sound familiar? Every single one of us on this platform has a story to tell. The biggest challenge is getting down to the business of actually telling it. We hold back, at least I know that I do because most times I feel like, who would care? Would it make a difference? Only recently have I fully realized that my time away from WA has cost me so much. When you think of it, where else would I find a community of experts and achievers with one important thing in common, the drive to succeed.Delayed Gratification-We're here for the Long Haul
WA does not qualify as a get rich scheme. The genius masterminds behind this program never set out to deceive anyone nor have they at any point claimed that by coming on board, you'll be stinking rich by tomorrow. You have to work, be willing to learn, ready to take some hard knocks and have a true and strong desire to see things through. Why then would I be stating the obvious? I need to remind myself and perhaps encourage someone today, especially those who may be new and not so new as well. Wouldn't it be great to stick around long enough to say I made it to 2, then 5 and then 10 years of winning over fears, doubts and faltering?
Potential Remains Just That Until You Use it
A seed on a counter top will do very little to inspire you but when you put it in a patch of dirt and water it, well the outcome is a lot different. You get to see this seed, seemingly insignificant at first, sprout roots and then shoot up through the soil so that you know its alive. I see WA as the patch of dirt, myself and others being the seeds. In the dirt, we all get access to nutrients, minerals and the earthworms also do their bit by making sure we are all breathing alright. Standing alone, as in the seed on the counter top, there's not much to write home about, there's potential but it ends there if not exploited. The training, milestones and practical assignments are potentially life-changing if and when taken seriously.
I Need To Know, So I Am Sticking Around
Before now, I could not fully appreciate the importance of accountability and commitment when you enroll in a program or make an investment. I can count a good number of times when I would start something and not follow through till the very end. It's costly, found that out the hard way and cannot blame anyone. I want to succeed, I am ready to be accountable and I am sticking around no matter what. It's not likely to be easy, but I am dusting myself off and will keep going. Here's to the best chapters of life ahead for all of us!
