Learning baby steps!

Last Update: January 21, 2021

At age 83, never thought I'd have to learn to walk!

  • Arthritis hit my back and sciatica brought me to my knees.
  • Finally, after a month of excruciating pain, got the epidural... pain is gone.
  • Now, I have to learn to walk again... been very difficult!
  • Everyone here at WA has to learn to walk... not easy, but take baby steps.
Learning is vital!
  • Many newbies just don't want to take the time to do that...
  • They flounder and fail... complaining that they're not making money.
  • There is a reason for the procedures here... they work!
  • I know I keep harping on it, but you just have to learn to walk before you run!
  • Please, please, slow down... do the steps.

If you succeed sooner, that's a plus!

  • There will be time for celebration... after you learn to walk.
  • The victory is sweeter with the hard work.
  • Nothing is earned easily... time is the friend and the enemy!

Being a pilot, I love this anonymous quote:

"The bad news is time flies. The good news is you're the pilot."

Learn to walk, then you can fly!

Hi Joe, I sincerely hope that the baby steps are paying off and that you will soon be able to walk with ease.
After spinal surgery it took 2 long years for me to regain the feeling in my toes on one foot. It seemed like an eternity but once it came right was soon forgotten.
It was a good lesson in just getting on with things. So much like the learning process here at WA.
Sometimes I get frustrated and think, I will never understand this and then something clicks and, whew! By George, I got it.

I remember when I was a teen I had to have back surgery. I was in a cast that covered almost all of my body. Needless to say, for 3 months, I could do nothing but stay in bed flat on my back. After the cast was finally removed, it took some time to learn to walk again AND it was painful.

It's just like WA -- it takes time AND can be painful but you keep on and eventually it's habit.

An Awesome uplifting post, Joe. Thank you.
Everyone here at WA has to learn to walk not easy but take baby steps, and that is true. Yes, time is a friend and same time is an enemy.
If I can make my business goals reasonable and take things one step at a time, it will be better to be prepared for long-term success. I will try to do it.
Thanks,
Joyce
