In Over My Head and Learning how to Swim Fast

Last Update: April 19, 2015

This has been an awesome and scary last two weeks. I ran across WA about 3 weeks ago. For the 1st week I looked at the site, I kept getting email ads from my sponsor and the more I read about WA the more I liked it. I knew two things, one I wanted in as a Premium Member and two I wouldn't have the $19 until another 2 weeks. So I waited until I would have the Money before the end of my 7 day trial period.

I have learned so much over these last few weeks and there's no way I want to give up my Premium Membership, where is the money going to come from...we'll I have no idea; but I'm going to start promoting it like crazy and I'm sure I'll get enough so I can make my membership due.

The most important thing I've gained in the last few weeks of hanging out here at WA is confidents, that is the first thing you need in order to get anywhere. For years I have struggled to understand how you could make money by helping others make money, but with all of the help and support I have received through WA I finally got it.

I still feel like I'm in over my head but I know two things, one I'm enjoying testing my limits and expanding my horizons, and two I know that as long as I stick with WA I will have certain success in building my online business.

I can still remember struggling in the shallow end of our community pool to learn how to swim, but I begged my Mother to take me to the pool everyday and I wore myself to a frazzle trying to swim. Then one day in mid summer I got it! I swam across the shallow end of the pool! I was so proud of myself; I was a swimmer and I had taught myself! I spent the rest of the summer gaining enough strength to swim the length of the pool, that was the rule in order to swim in the deep end the kids had to swim the length of the pool in front of an adult. I'll never forgot how scared I was to take that lap, I did it next to the edge. When I did it the adult who witnessed it told me, "that was great, and now that you know you can do it, tomorrow you can take your lap in the middle of the pool." I was astonished! "But I swam the length of the pool," I howled. "yes, but you lack confidence, and I want you to feel confident in the water," she responded. So the next day I swam the lap in the middle of the pool, and I made it! So from that day forward I was not only a swimmer, but a confident swimmer; I loved being in the water.

Well there's a lot in common with how I felt then and now. Back in the pool I knew that I could learn how to swim if I just kept at it, and so I did. So right now I have just learned a few things about how to advertise my online business, now I have to apply what I'very learned. It's a lot like when I got the hang of swimming, I still had to get enough strength and confidence to swim the length of the pool. So just like I had fun becoming a better swimmer, I look forward to swimming around the WA pool and making money as I become a better online entrepreneur; and have fun doing it.

Very well written! You've got a natural talent for writing as it flows well and is very engaging.

I for one am not the most "confident" of swimmers due to the paralysis of my right arm. I can swim freestyle with one arm, but it's not something I choose to do. I have tried hard not to put my own insecurities onto my kids in regard to swimming as Australia is surrounded by one big beach often with deadly rips and a few sharks thrown in for good measure.

So I'm not a "beachy" girl either and prefer spending the summer with my feet firmly planted on the ground. I think you will get a lot out of WA and just trust in the process of it all and the same goes for the financial side of things. Believe and know that you will be able to make the payments.

I know it sounds flippant, but we all need to get this attitude…….the universe or God or whatever you believe in, but most importantly yourself will have the ability to provide, if you get a doubt then cast it aside and change the thought to that of gratitude.

Wishing you all the best in this adventure :o)

Thank you for your kind words about my writing, and your right about the money coming in for my WA membership It'll come in. I know what it's like trying to swim with a handicap, the MS has given me anot inflammatory condition in the chest so I don't really like swimming as much these days. I'm sure your kids will like the water. I'm tired so I think I'm going to call it a night.
