Reflections!

Last Update: December 04, 2019

Final stretch of 2019

  • Time to pause, hit the reset button and reflect on what I did right and what I did wrong.
  • Did a lot of wrong things... also did some right things.
  • Been at WA nearly 18 months... wasted almost 12!
  • Decided I wanted to help lots of people and changed direction.
  • Rank at WA shot up to #7 and I didn't realize it!
  • Became Ambassador, but didn't know about it until I got the email from Kyle.

Then came the wake up call!

  • Got 5,000 plus followers.
  • 220 blogs on WA.
  • 5 websites (none working!)
  • 86 posts on my websites (none ranked)
  • 66,645 words written on my websites.



Who am I competing with? ME!

  • Think for a minute Joe... why are you here?
  • Help people? Yes. Build a website? Yes. Build a business? Yes.
  • Was I succeeding? Yes... rank went up... websites went down!
  • Wait... this isn't working!
  • Can you have your cake and eat it too? YES... priorities. Motives.

Ahhhh... yes... bring on the cake!

  • Refocus... get your act together Joe!
  • Keep helping people? Darned tootin!
  • Get the right niche? Yep!
  • Save a pile of money? Yep... took advantage of Black Friday at WA!

So, I am now competing with myself. Running this to win. Let me close with a quote I have used many times from my friend Zig Ziglar:

“You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.”

A powerful post, Joe...One that we can pick up a lot of gems from and use for our own drill down as this year draws to a close...It is helpful to see others' process...

For the record, I know you will get to whatever goal it is you are aiming for...It seems you are also working hard to figure out what that goal is...

You are asking the right questions, and most certainly you can do it, the skills, experience, drive, and will is there...These are the things that people see and emulate with their own efforts...

Much appreciated...

Cheers!

Joe!
You top dog you.
Thunder Birds, oh yea! Swell photo. Did you know Ross Perot's son has a (government allowed) T-38? Painted just like these T-birds. How cool to have such a toy / such a mode of transportation.

18 months & wasted 12?
So you're telling us that in 6 months you could have gotten to where you are right now? Don't forget about any of those internal mindset re-arrangments.
Rank @ 7 !
Sweet. Yet now you got it, keep it.
Now you can use this rank as clout for to bring in the newbees. You've a HOT marketing tool under your belt, Ambassador Joe. Just devise a way to bring em in. Then repeat it a boat-load of times. Webpage -you can do this without it. Shoot for that financial retirement target you wrote about. webpage(s) will happen & develop through time.

"Who am I competing with? ME!"
Ever played golf for a period of time. We're always competing so to better ourselves up. In the least, we should be.
Here's an idea. Quit competing with yourself & focus on the 300 you're gonna bring into WA as premium WAers. How your gonna help them & mentor them & get them to where they want to be in life. Now how rewarding would that be?
Ooooo, I could go on more yet this is "your" competition.
.
"Get the right niche?"
Why not search out keywords via Jaaxy that'll draw em into your WA pages? Words like . . .
What about money problem forems? Sign on as a member & get to know the people. Best study up the contracts they'll get you to check off before becoming a member. Some may state NO MARKETING WHAT SO EVER.
.
2020 is gonna be HOT for you, Joe. You've built yourself a good foundation. Now go verticle.

You know, these kids a decade ago used to tell me that I'm too wordy.
They were writing with the rap-style, even ebonics. I just would not go there. And here we are today, content is king.
You've done a swell job within a very short time line. You've pulled a lot of G's. So I guess now you're gonna straighten out & fly fast N straight. Get'n to that destination ASP.
I'll be watching.
Out.

Oh boy Joe, I was saying yes to so many of your points... some were ok to say yes to, but others were not. Who am I in competition with... ME ! so right ... got to stop fighting with myself. Ive found a to do list online - Monday - seems to be what I need so I have started filling it out and feel this will help, not necessarily in getting things done quicker but at least I wont forget what I am doing ! And to stop fighting with myself... there is no deadline for my website ..so here's to 2020 !

I will help others get what they want and too will get what I want !

Helen, you have to believe in your self. Don't struggle with yourself... accept yourself. You are a beautiful person and you have so much to offer. Help others, but also help yourself.
You are going to do this.

Hi Joe,

Some of us are in the same situation, will be in it or just worked our way out of it. So at some point or another on our journey her at WA, we will relate to this. You always manage to say it like it is Joe. Thanks for the great reminder! Wishing you the very best!

Kind regards,
Nichola

whatever niche you choose Joe if you approach it with the "you will get all you want in life if you help other people get what they want, you can't fail. I think you would be great in the make money online niche following Boot Camp although it is competitive you are fabulous inspiration
