Failed Miserably!

Last Update: April 16, 2017

About a year ago, I made a 1 Year Goal at Wealthy Affiliate. It was to continue posting 3-5x a week, and make $10k in a month. Needless to say, I failed miserably!

I had to return to work last year and it slowed down my progress tremendously. I am down to posting 2x a week, and I've made a few hundred dollars, but no where near $10k. Lol

I can only laugh now because I remember my state of mind when I first joined. I really thought this was going to be easy. The saying remains true, nothing great in life comes easy! I've learned that this is going to take a lot of hard work.

It's sort of like working out. Everyone wants that built/tone body, but no one wants to commit to the lifestyle. It's unbelievable that some of us go into the gym and expect to have the body we want within a month, or two, or three. When the truth is you'll be lucky if you have it within a year. By year 2 or 3, you should definitely be there, or really close too it.

So it is, I have extended these goals to be accomplished within my year 3.

The Good News

Surprisingly I've been making money online (with my website), and consistently. I've actually made enough to cover my yearly expense, and I'm really happy about that. For anyone on the fence about internet marketing, know this. You can achieve it, but it's going to take a lot of elbow grease.

It really is a mind shift. Work for the outcome. In 5 years, I want to be working from home, and making a comfortable full time income. Understand that this is not a overnight success program, nor does one exist. Only then, can you really commit to earning results online. :-)

Thanks for reading! If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer.

Thanks for sharing Jonothan. Maybe you did not make your goals, but I don't think you failed. If you would have given up, that is failing :)
