A Tough Pill To Swallow

Last Update: October 09, 2020

Sometimes we experience uncovering a cover up that our leader was involved in. The difference between truth and lies, can leave us red-faced. We believed in him/her, and absolutely refused to accept that they could have been involved. But yet they were.

It was so bad that they resigned their position, which was the honorable thing to do. This was a tough pill to swallow for us little believers.

You feel betrayed and vow to never be caught on the wrong side again. Yet these things happen over and over again. As the saying goes: HISTORY REPEATS iTSELF.

The big question we should be asking ourselves, is, HAVE YOU LEARNED ANYTHING FROM THIS?

HAVE YOU LEARNED ANYTHING?

One thing I have learned, is that I am more wary of all things. Is it truth, or is it not? I have to weigh everything before being captured into the narrative.

Another thing I know is "Nothing worth having is free." There is always a price to pay, whether it be monitary or effort, or both.

We, many of us here at WA have experienced this very thing as we tried to build an online business. More than once some of us have been taken in by a conman with a story to tell that is unbelievable. We want it to be true so bad that we sucker in and take a few bites, to only experience the discouraging fact that this too is "too good to be true."


It takes work

One thing that rules true, is "It takes work to build a business." We cannot just open shop and expect to succeed. For every great piano player, they had to put in the effort to get there. The same is true in business. No matter if you open a brick and mortar store or an online one, it will take much work and diligence to succeed.

I remember hearing years ago that you aren't expected to get into profitability for more than 5 years after opening a business. Hopefully that is not true here. We need to realize that with building with WA's platform and training, we can be sure it is built on truth. People are doing it and proving it every day. By following correct principles, we can succeed.

May we all have the vision to avoid the snares and lies that lie in wait for a hungry entrepreneur who wants to skip to the finish line before the race is over and thus have a tough pill to swallow.

What is interesting is the in the UK lots of fancy eating places sprung up with expensive rents and high overheads. However their customer service was awful and their food not much better. They were obsessed with style over quality. At least with WA our margins are great once we get traffic and convert. That means we can focus on our audience not the buildings. Thanks for sharing, Phil
