The Power of Community

Last Update: February 24, 2015

There are many components to success in any business. Not in order of importance ........

You need a plan

You should have a blueprint, and work on it regularly, keep updating it

You usually need some form of finance, however minimal - few businesses can be started up from scratch, although it is possible - take WA, for example, with its free entry.

You need dedication.

You need a vision

These are just to name a few .... and lastly, but not least, you need a team of supporters, to be a member of a group of like-minded people - this has been stressed over and over again, by such luminaries as Napoleon Hill in "Think Yourself Rich" .... the strong message is that YOU CAN'T DO IT ALONE. Your need a SUCCESS CIRLE, from which you can get support, mentoring when you lose your way, or when the going is tough and you feel alone, or when you just need a crucial bit of advice or information - enter (drum roll)

the awesome, AWESOME, WA community ..... the power and support of sharing, caring like-minded people at the ready to help each other has to be experienced to be believed.......

Yes, sometimes we grumble about all the emails

Yes, sometimes we grumble about it being addictive and we are not getting our work done

Yes, sometimes we wonder why ranking is so important, and grumble about the time involved to work on improving that ranking

But, let's face it, it is the community which keeps us going, and keeps us heading to our computers even when we are feeling a bit jaded as we are feeling a bit overwhelmed with all that there is to learn ..... we also know that we are not in this alone, and we can share the joy and excitement of every little step forward, every EUREKA moment; that here, our success matters and our failures will be forgiven and understood, and that we will be cheered on and urged to not ever accept failure. Where else can you get that?

And of course, when you get so much, you also have to give, which is why we must also contribute, as is so encouraged here. Our community is our strength, and our success matters to each other. Let's salute and celebrate this community because it really is our success circle. .

Thanks for sharing you idea. My hardest part is consistent.

Nice to see you again, MrWailor. We're all learning from each other. Consistency can be overcome with practise - like anything, the first step is to recognize what we need to practise (and you did).. I am learning that just giving something a go is the biggest first step forward, then keep working at it, and eventually it becomes habit. We all have our strengths and weaknesses - for me (the hardest) is procrastination. But I'm working on it, till I have beaten it. I made progress this week.

Hi Harold; nice to hear from you again, and thanks for the feedback. It is filling many needs, informative, nurturing and social, while at the same time still serving it members so well in their online endeavours. It is truly unique in that way and I think we wouldn't have it any other way now.
