Do Successful People Still Have Downs In Their Online Business?
Hello WA Warriors!!
I have found myself in a moment here to reflect on what a journey this has been for me and how much I treasure this WA community.
Where I am in my journey today, I feel like I can do so much more but at the same time feel stuck in a lull.
The way this online business "really" works is ever a mystery to me with Google playing with their algorithm when they feel like it and not knowing fast enough what's the latest and greatest.
Even though I have found some success, I still go back to these moments of real desperation of not knowing which direction to turn or if what I'm trying to do is the right thing.
The numbers are telling me it's not, but if SEO is supposed to work the way I have been using it then these numbers should turn around in due time.
This wait... The wait that we all know... the dreaded waiting game of getting ranked.
I'm right back at when I was in month 8, 9, or even 10, wondering if all this work is going to pay off.
Doubting I'll rank for those keywords. Wondering WHY I'm STILL not rankng well for those keywords!
These feelings are very real and no one will understand them like this WA community does as it knows exactly what I'm talking about and that is why this group of people in here is so precious to all of us going through this journey.
This is a battle that I know I will have with myself throughout my entire online journey no matter what level I will hit.
Like right now, I know I will get pass this lull I'm experiencing.
I know I will make 5 figures/month next year.... on a consistent basis.
I know I will contintue to work hard to get to my next goals.
I have so much doubt in my mind because my numbers aren't telling me the same.
I've been looking at different shiny objects. *gasp*
I've been not focused.
How Do I Get Out Of This?
1. Blog about it on WA so I have the support of my friends who will tell me "You Can Do This!"
2. Wake up tomorrow morning and demand change, as I'll be charged up from all the "You Can Do This!" comments below.
3. I work like crazy until I see my numbers turn around.
So, here I am again at a point in my journey where I need to get tougher when the going gets tough.
I hate that I have to eat my own words now. Lol
But, I know I have to do it.
So I will.
You noticed #3 above, there is no time limit. I will have to commit a 100% and more to what I need to do to change my numbers around.
It could take 2 months, it could take 2 years.
All I know is that my online businss needs me, and I need to stay focused. It's so easy to lose focus when things aren't going right guys.
Don't let that distract you on what's important and that is keep on writing, using awesome keywords, and making them high quality.
Thank You WA Community For Being My Ear!
I had to vent.
Now I have to get to work!
(well, sleep first then work!)
PS - Please share if you have the same fleeting moments of doubt and what you did to get past it or if you need help to get past it.
