Turning Dreams Into Reality

Turning Dreams Into Reality

I just woke up this morning feeling a bit inspired so I decided to write a quick blog post for everyone out here in the WA community.

When I got started about 8 days ago, I was thinking about literally just taking a quick browse at this site. I had no idea what it was about and I surely wasn't aware of how many members we have here.

My dream before starting any Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) ventures has always been to become an affiliate marketer. Since the day I was exposed to the idea, I instantly knew that affiliate marketing was the route I wanted to take for my career.

I veered from the path many of times, but I find myself once again trying to do the same thing I attempted so many times in the past.

What's Different This Time?

I have had this sickening motivation ever since I have started WA and I tried thinking about what was sparking such enthusiasm into creating my own business.

After thinking long and hard about it, I decided that it was having this wonderful community of people that can not only motivate you every single day but also help you in the process of growing your business.

Every other course or product that I have purchased related to internet marketing had pretty good material inside.

Undoubtedly, I truly believe one could be successful with the information provided in them.

But one thing was always lacking and that was a community of like-minded individuals trying to do the same thing you are in the process of doing.

Enough Talking! Why are you Taking So Much ACTION?

First of all, I am making sacrifices that I previously was unwilling to do for any business venture.

I am giving up sleep and school (for the moment, not permanent) in an attempt to start my own online business.

You see, I've learned in past couple of months by reading motivational and inspiring content that one must be willing to sacrifice something in exchange for success.

It was Napolean Hill that stated an exchange of this sort must be made if you plan on being successful.

Now I get up every single day at 4 AM or 5 AM to work on my business. I have utilized well over 40 hours these past 7 days alone on my business.

Do I say this brag? No.

Do I say this to motivate you? Yes.

So What Are You Going to Sacrifice?

I want anyone reading this to take a step back and ask yourself "What are you sacrificing in order to run a successful business?"

Everyone in this world can come up with a million excuses as to why they can't work on their website. Kids, family, work, girlfriend, boyfriend, school and a hundred other things that have nothing to do with running your business.

Know that you MUST make a sacrifice of some sort in your life or you will find it extremely difficult to run an effective business.

So stop making excuses as to why you can't do this and start finding ways to better utilize your time. Whether you have to wake up early as hell or stay up till the crack of dawn, JUST DO IT!

As always, thanks for reading and I hope to hear from other WA members :D

Thanks so much for this encouraging blog. You are so right! Determining what you are willing to sacrifice is one of the first things you have to seriously decide on as an entrepreneur. A support system is a must for success, no matter where or how you find it. I clicked on the wrong thing when WA fell into my lap...what a wonderful surprise and the best community ever :)

Jonathan...and there you have it....the old adage "if you can't run with the big dogs, stay on the porch" were never more true....thanks for jacking up our little comfort zones just a little. I saw something online the other day:

If your dreams don't scare you....

So, my peeps, reach for the stars and stretch yourself a lot....it will pay off in the long run. Thanks for this, Jonathan....and say hi to your gorgeous friend!

Every successful person here at WA I'm sure would agree with you. I go to work feeling exhausted every day and the only thing that keeps me going is the passion that I get to blog about and shoot videos every day about.

Keep up the hard work! I know it will be worth it in the end :D

Go for it. I'm a late sleeper, so instead of watching TV I utilize my time on improving my website. Thanks for sharing.
