Does Wealthy Affiliate really work? See the birthday present I made to myself!

Last Update: February 01, 2019

Hi guys,


I thought I would share this with you because today it's a special day to me.

Like many of you know, today is payday for all of those who are active recommending this awesome platform, so I imagine how excited those who have got paid their commissions are.

For me, it's not been a normal payday, it's also been my 23rd birthday! So it's been the most exciting day of my year so far!

There are many things that I'm grateful for. I'm grateful to have been able to spend this day with my family, I'm grateful to exist and I'm also grateful to have the chance to work on my goals.

I'm not gonna lie, not everyday I smile like that. Sometimes I have a hard time focusing and letting go of past mistakes. I usually remember what I did wrong last year and I tend to overthink the reasons why I didn't achieve the goals I had. For example, there's no day that I don't think about why I did not make it to the Vegas conference and I easily start feeling like a failure. But I guess it's all good as long as I don't stop trying.

Low conversion rates, lack of belief, limiting beliefs about money, my anxiety... It all plays a part. Those of you who also struggle with this, I hear you. You are not alone. If someone like me can make an income online, you can too. You can win the battle. Don't let anything or anyone discourage you.

The training and tools on this platform work, even for those of us who are not in our best state.

I know I will have to work harder to achieve this goal, even if I'm a slow one, I will keep trying. I need to remind myself that this is not a race or a competition, this is a journey and everyone's journey is different.

Thanks to those of you who have supported me during my journey, it's much appreciated.

Love always.

Congratulations Miren!

I think making 4 figures a month is a HUGE accomplishment and something you should defiantly be proud of.

It just goes to show that what your doing is working, and in order to make it to Vegas you just have to keep plugging away and doing the same thing.

Keep up the great work, and I look forward to hearing your many other achievements as the year goes by. :)

Happy birthday Miren! You are on the verge of getting Vegas so keep working hard and publish lots of articles. Don’t let self doubt cripple what you are really capable of, which is a lot more than you think! Being a 4 digit earner is the start of getting Vegas so you’re really close this year, don’t let the momentum die!!

See you in Vegas 2020!!

Thanks a lot, Grace!! (sorry for the late response btw lol).
I just read your Vegas post and I'm so inspired!! Lol I think I'll have to reread all these posts, especially when I'm feeling down. Like you said, the work always needs to get done even if you have already achieved some success because high rankings don't last if we are not active.

So excited to see you in Vegas 2020 =D

Don't beat yourself up. I'm pretty sure you probably did the best you could with the knowledge, skills, motivation, connections, and other resources you had, and that's all anyone could ask for. You're doing an amazing job, but it is a slow road building up to online success. You're clearly on the right path because you're getting results, and everytime I come to your website, it's very well done. Keep up the good work! Happy birthday! May this year draw much more success for you than any others. Hope to meet you in Vegas 2020, and let's turn it up! They need more women there. Haha.

Happy birthday Miren, I just wanted to say you will make it, please don’t doubt yourself. There will come a day when you can’t believe it was such a struggle :)

I am a lot further off than you and I know the struggle is real. We can do it! See you in Vegas real soon.

Miren,
You are an amazing young woman! You show such maturity for one so young. You will get there, have faith in yourself! Everyone fails, it is part of learning, take the lessons and keep moving forward! There is a book called Failing Forward by John C. Maxwell. Great read, may help put your fears at bay.
Wishing you a happy 23rd birthday!

Happy Birthday girl, failure also is the way to be successful in life and in business too. Any time you failed you won experience, be persistent, I am new here in WA but anyway I can see the value we have in front of us.

Enjoy your day.

Cheers,

You are right, failure is a part of the process, it's best to fail than to quit.

Congratulations on the sales also. Those are very nice sales.
I wish that I was as smart and motivated as you are back when I was in my 20's.

2019 is going to be an incredible year for you.

Thanks a lot Sondra!! Yes, I’m glad that I got to spend it with my family.
Honestly, I don’t consider myself to be smart, I feel like I’m missing something out.
Glad that you found this post useful, best wishes =)

You underestimate yourself. As Benji's Dad said below, you will be in Vegas next year along with Grace.

Again, Happy Birthday!

Congratulations. I just told my own daughter about your success, hoping to give her one more gentle nudge in the direction of starting her own online business. She has some similar limitations to what you described. I know she's interested, but getting started is a problem for her. Well done and keep up the great work. You'll get to Vegas without a doubt. Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday, and congrats Miren!

Although you didn't make Vegas, you should still be proud of your accomplishments - earning a full-time income (more than what some make from "jobs") and consistently working to scale that income.

Slowly but surely, you'll make it to Vegas.

I've failed 3 times already lol, but I'm making the 4th time lucky :)
