So F** Up - Why Didn't I .

Last Update: March 11, 2020

Why Didn't I Listen...

Because I didn't fully accept that the need to make income was driving me a bit more that the need to build a successful long-term business. Lesson learned - I bought a domain name that is not so good. Please don't tell me all is not lost, I know that already I just found it in Level 2. On reflection here are the signs when I was not listening:

  1. Trying to speed up the videos - and then realizing you must have missed something
  2. Searching on how to finish the process - darn it, the answer is another video
  3. Having less fun - like wanting to pound the fist when the internet connection dropped a few night ago
  4. Showing signs of impatience in other areas - when I took a moment to quietly look within, I could see the thread go right back to HASTE (masked in. many forms of course:-))

Why Didn't I Look...

Naturally that takes time to look at the models of success (of which there are many) in this community. I quite preferred a quick scan and I was up and ready to go. If I were looking at this movie, I'd be like - woman get a grip and settle down. I really didn't realize fully... I did a little but felt I could get away with it...sneaky right?!:-) Lesson learned - I asked the support coach for feedback and he eloquently asked me to consider LOOKING at the work of others to reach the goal I had identified.

Here's what I noticed after the fact, which pretty much solidified I wasn't looking:

  1. Not understanding as easily as I normally would
  2. Yielding to the thought that I have to get out there now - UNDUE HASTE, again:-)
  3. Feeling a slight bit of competition with others - the deadliest of all in the book

My Resolve

I decided to take a step back, success isn't ahead of me it's in me. I:

  1. Reviewed the financial goals
  2. Created a clear plan of action for the next 30 days
  3. Restarted the Online Entrepreneur Certification training and will complete by Sunday, March 15, 2020.
  4. I'll revisit the okay website to make it good, then better, then the best it can be (1/50, I have options:-)).



I actually don't feel so f** (fed) up anymore!

When I jumped in back in January 2017, I told myself I would follow each lesson to the tee like a robot and just trust in the system. I told myself I wouldn't even care about commissions for a good 6 months. I would just work and learn and after that time had passed I would reevaluate and see how much progress I had made.

It was the best advice I've take from myself because with every week that passed I could see progress in what I was learning. At a certain point you just sit back and say, "if I do what they're telling me to do, I'm going to have exactly what they're telling me I'll have."

Focus on your growth, your learning, and on the user experience, and everything else falls into place.

And when you do get that first commission, you'll probably be just like me, staring at my computer and saying "it's working, it's working, it's WORKING!" over and over and over again.
