"Don't Judge Me!"
I recently came across a post about how to “leave” a WealthyAffiliate Premium membership. In the comments to the post (there were about 16 at the time), almost everyone agreed that there were no good reasons to do so. Although my viewpoint on this may differ from most of the comments there, in the end, I must be true to myself.
There may be others who also hold this view; in all honesty,I did myself, at one time. However, I believe that is not a proper viewpoint to hold and offer my own story as proof:
After I joined Wealthy Affiliate, I quickly learned what a tremendous community it was, and I seriously could not understand or appreciate why anyone would ever quit.
I upgraded to Premium in short order and even went Yearly because I was serious about learning how to become an internet marketer and wanted to make a full-time income from my endeavors.
That was in 2015.
However, after only a few short months, I became hospitalized because of illness and began a long stretch of medical complications. I became disabled, lost my job, and had to leave WA.
My condition improved enough for me to come back in Decemberof 2016. Of course, I had to start all over again. But, I had a relapse just a few months later. This time, however, I decided to keep up my monthly fee tokeep my account intact. I spent the remainder of 2017 in and out of the hospital and unable to do much on my business.
But, by now, I could clearly see the benefit of WA and was finally able to get back into it in December of 2017. However, my decision to quit in 2015 was based on an inability to properly work the business, which everyone would agree, is a legitimate reason to quit.
Bottom line is this: There are legitimate reasons why someone might need to "pause" their WA activities or even quit altogether. I did not fully understand that until I was in a circumstance that caused me to quit...FOR A WHILE!
Our individual circumstance might be such that the thought of quitting may never be something we have to seriously consider. For others, it may not be that simple.
I suppose my REAL bottom line is this: Let’s not be so quick to assume we know another person’s circumstance or motive for a particular action. Quite often, we can only see what amounts to the tip of that person’s iceberg.
That is all!
I’m interested to know your thoughts on this. Agree? Disagree? I want to hear it all.
