It's been a year already! Is giving up my best choice?
This is not a success story like many ones I have been reading lately.
In fact, I have been thinking whether or not to write this post but I'm finally going to share it because there might be people who are in a similar situation as me.
It's great to read success stories to get inspired and motivated, but I know success stories sometimes can be a little bit discouraging, especially if you have been putting a lot of effort into something and are not seeing the kind of results you desire and know you deserve.
I have been in this community for more than two years already, and the first year I was still studying so I worked very little on my site.
I also had the shiny object syndrome so I used to get very distracted and got involved in many opportunities.
Now I can say it's been a year that I decided I would start taking this seriously. I had 36 posts on my site back in September 2017. Now I have 330 posts.
Last year at this time I had more hope that I could make this work if I put in the effort and time and also was excited to see what changes I would experience.
I only had a full-time job for 3 months so the rest of months I have been working on this business.
At this point, I don't have that kind of hope I used to have. The only thing that keeps me going are the positive comments that sometimes I receive on my site and the fact that some of my referrals are glad to be here is something that is also preventing me from giving up.
If I were only taking into consideration my traffic stats, the number of referrals I get or the sales I have made, I probably would have given up already.
Yes, I'm earning more than I was earning last year at this time, but it's been some months that I'm not seeing any improvements even though I haven't stopped working.
Last year I made $0 so I guess I should be glad that I'm earning more than that now. Another positive thing is the fact that I still have the opportunity to work on this, until May I don't have to pay for my yearly membership again.
I'm also grateful that my family members are being patient and still haven't told me to get a real job, since they don't believe and don't support me in this even though it's going better than last year. They think I'm wasting my time and everyday I wish I could prove them wrong and give them what they deserve.
I know I would have more faith if I were making progress or saw a little breakthrough. I believe there's something big I'm missing out but I still haven't found what it is so maybe I'm not smart enough for this.
I had the hope that if I put in the effort, I could make it to Vegas but now I see it's too late for me.
Those who are looking to make an extra income, know that it's possible because if someone like me has reached that goal, I believe ANYONE can do it!
I'm a slow one so I believe anyone on here can achieve what I have achieved in less time than me.
So, at this point, my question is if giving up is the best decision I can make and there are times that I think about the results I'm getting and I would say "yes" because I am not seeing any improvements, but then I tell myself "a big no" because I'm NO QUITTER.
Anyway, I wanted to give some hope to those who are starting out and looking forward to making this work. Know that this is MORE THAN POSSIBLE for you!
