“Dare To Be

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!” ~ Steve Maraboli


Wish you all the best building your online business.

love your new profile pic. I have a new article i was hoping you could go over it. It's a short one. Maybe you could make any correction needed. I am I getting better. I hope so. I hate to keep bothering you. Here it is:

​Today was absurd! but let me back up a bit.

The other day I was notified via my laptop that windows 10 had a new update. So I updated my system. For me it was a big mistake! However it would be Monday before I knew what a disaster it would be.

Monday came and it started out like every other. BUT then, I ended up sitting at my laptop for 7 hours! Seriously are you kidding? There are times when I think I have no patience but then something like this happens and I realize I probably have more patience than most.

This isn't the first time something like this has happened to me. One time I was on the phone with Time Warner Cable for 8 hours one day then 5 the next. I never even got mad as a matter of fact I was laughing because stuff like this happens to me on a regular basis.

After taking the dogs for a walk in the morning I sat down at my laptop to update my account password document. When I was done I tried to print it so I could put it in an actual file. That's when what would normally be a simple thing took me ALL day! No exaggeration.

First I was on the phone with Epson. Then I was on the phone with Microsoft. They did this and that then they did that and this but availed nothing. Next thing I knew it was 5 pm.

My husband was on his way home after working all day. I hadn't written up the job proposal he asked me to nor had I done any house work. When he walked in the door I was glad to see beer in his hand for two reasons. One, because I wanted one. Lord knows I was stressed. Two, that meant I had time to make dinner because I hadn't done that either.

While cleaning the kitchen so I could cook it dawned on me, uninstall what Microsoft installed. Bingo! After all the problem did not occure until after they did a system update.

It worked like a charm. Praise God!

I was so happy I could have cried. At the same time I was a liitle upset no one else had thought of that. I think pride might have been involved here.

Nevertheless everything is back to normal now. What a relief. Technology today can be over whelming especially for someone my age. I wasn't taught these things when I went to school. I had to had to learn tech stuff on my own.

All I know is God is great because if that didn't work I would have been up you know what without a paddle :-(

Moral of the story, When in doubt don't freak out, pray your Heavenly Father will give you knowledge :-)

If stress is an issue for you here is a link I believe will be helpful for you.

God bless and keep the faith!

hey mike how are you... newbie here...
I just registered to premium days ago and made to purchase a new domain for a newly built website... but for some reason as I am logging into my host domain the page is empty... back to the site manager it says "processing" ?
my question is, how long does the processing will it takes so that I can continue to putting on my newly host domain... (",)

sorry I got your profile to fix the matter... I'm stuck : )

Mike-Writes Premium
Hi Arlene,

With some hosting companies, it can take 24 - 48 hours. Also, if the domain was purchased else where it could take a bit once you set it to your hosting service. If you are using Wealthy Affiliate for this their Site Support can get it handled quickly.

If you could let me know where you bought your domain and who is hosting it, that would help in knowing who to turn to in order to get the problem resolved.

Hi Mike,

Do you think you can give me a helping hand and give me some tips on how I can improve my writing skills? As I plan to write daily a blog, this is still practice, your input means a lot to me. Can you please look and tell me honestly what you think? It concerns The Daily WA postings only. Today I teach when and how to like and what the like is standing for.

Oh have fun reading ;)

Thanks a lot. :)

I am a reporter from The Daily WA:

Mike, share this with your followers:

How's Your Aim?
“You need to aim beyond what you are capable of. You need to develop a complete disregard for where your abilities end. If you think you’re unable to work for the best company in its sphere, make that your aim. If you think you’re unable to be on the cover of TIME magazine, make it your business to be there. Make your vision of where you want to be a reality. Nothing is impossible.”  —Paul Arden

"Most people’s goals are completely logical. They don’t require much imagination. They certainly don’t require faith, luck, magic or miracles."

that was beautiful I joined tis site cause I am at the lowest of lows in my life, I have lost everything I have nothing to my name but my laptop and cell phone. I don't even have cloths to my name. the sad part is I can not get any help cause I don't have kids. and because of some stuff that happened I cant find a job to save me. I found this site by accent but I will say this I believe with all my heart I was meant to find this site. sorry for telling you all this its just that poem spoke to my heart. so thank you you made my day.

Honored to follow and humbled to be followed herein @ WA Mike.

Being fairly new my only advice is to 'use the tools' because I've found this place far&away; the best place to crawl, walk, and run.

My goal is to make people better in health via a Functional Wellness
approach and look forward to 'reaching out' to many more here.

I wish you and yours much success in all of your business venture(s) and new life moments.

Hi Mike - noticed you started following me again. I have been absent for around a year and only just got started back. I think I need to go back to the beginning and take this journey in small steps this time instead of trying to conquer the world! Cheers and any suggestions you have for someone starting back will be greatly appreciated.

Wishing you the best -

Hi Mike,
My name is Donna. Thank you for following me. I'm brand new to WA and I am glad I found the site through one of the members here. If it wasn't for him, I was about to be stuck in another scam program. I've had it with those and was about to give up. I love the Dare to Be on your profile. I need to get a copy of that and post it somewhere in my room so I see it everyday. It's very inspiring and motivational. Keep in touch. Donna

Hey Mike, thanks for the follow and I'm now following you back.

Looks like you've been here a while, I imagine your WA business is looking pretty great!

Love the quotes and the one that stood out to me was 'When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.'

The fact that I've put a working plan together certainly makes it easier to keep going but sometimes the old eye balls want to have a wee nap, oh dear!

Hello, and thank you!

Being new to the community is both a challenge and a blessing. I think the challenge will be to me (and about me and what will work for me) while the blessing is when you get to know new friends and people who can guide you and advise you about what to do next.

I'll surely be bothering you with questions soon enough, for now, I just want to say cheers!

Yes, Mike,

Agree with you completely. This is Nice to be eloquent and ready to give support, but really is "crazy" When you need help, it is not so easy to get it.
Life demands from us much more than just passive participation.

Next 4-6 weeks plenty organisational work for me. I have to do it alone.

Thanks so much for the follow. your marketing skills could come in handy for a guy like me if I ever did need a few questions answered.
But to be honest the biggest thing that caught my attention was that you like old tractors. I too have the same interests. I am the owner of a 1948 and 1950 8N.
Hope to chat soon.

Hi Mark,
Nice to meet you. In a few weeks, I will complete my first year here at Wealthy Affiliate. I have only been an Ambassador for 119 days, so it took me awhile to reach this level. There are many who have achieved this in a much shorter time. The most important thing is to concentrate on building your online business. The rankings will take care of themselves.

I am looking forward to being a part of your network here. Wish you much success with Wealthy Affiliate!

Hello Mike, thank you for follow back...I have one question if you don't mind, I didn't install akismet and captcha plugins, they wasn't in my settings page, but in kyle's video they were. one fellow WA member told I don't need them, but I want to ask a veteran .-)

what do you say about it?

Hi Demis,
I don't use them either. I personally see no need for them. You can always add Captcha later from the WordPress plugin section if you develop a need for it. Hope this helps. :)

Hey! I love your WA blog. I read one of your posts, and then was like, man this guy's stuff really gets you thinking and is really encouraging. I'm unfortunately the kind of person who ALWAYS manages to sweat the small stuff, so reading your blog helped me realize how ridiculous being that way really is. How much those things really don't matter. It's like my mind is always cluttered, and reading your material helped me to unclutter my mind.

Thank you, Rini. Glad to hear the posts have been a help to you. We all need encouragement and motivation on a regular basis. It is essential in overcoming the obstacles we encounter on this wonderful journey called affiliate marketing.
