It wasn't a Dream

It's always nice to wake up to good news. It's like being at your birthday party or waking up on Christmas morning. It's like being King for a day! ... You get the idea.

What it really is, ... is being recognized and acknowledged for your efforts. Another one of the MANY benefits of being a member here at Wealthy Affiliate.

I have been studying here for almost 3 years. In the beginning, I struggled to follow the lessons, to understand the terminology, and to make sense of it all. Don't get me wrong ... I still do!

My strength and My Weakness

My strength and my weakness is that I refuse to give up on my dream. I hang on to it like a child who hangs on to that special gift he has received on his birthday or on Christmas morning!

1 Million People

A few days ago I posted a blog to the world. This blog was about the almost "1 Million People" that had registered to become members here at Wealthy Affiliate! I was so impressed with this fact that I just had to write about it. Such an incredible number of people wanting and sharing the same DREAM.

Others who have followed their Dreams

So many Great Men and Women have put great words together to say wonderful things that become repeated over time. Here are a few that come to mind.

" Aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit a star." ... W. Clement Stone

" Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy." ... Norman Vincent Peale

Why I refuse to let go of MY Dream

Little boys love their toys, but Grown Men love their toys MORE!

My Dreams ARE my toys and I run with them, into the future.

Wealthy Affiliate is my Future!

Thank You to EVERYONE here that helps me carry my Toy into this future!

Is this true Mickey?
Or is this an urban legend ... that was born in your part of the world?

Loved your post, Paul. With Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson have created a wonderful environment for folk to dare to acknowledge their dreams again, and all the encouragement they need to turn their dreams into reality. This is a wonderful thing, and to find it again later in life is amazing. It's like being a child all over again, but with the advantage of hindsight and appreciation for this discovery. Every day I am grateful to be a part of this wonderful platform and community. Sometimes I am so grateful I forget I still have much to do and have to remind myself I have to keep moving forward, too, lol!

Yes, this is very true, Katharina.
It is rare to be offered so much.
It leaves us with NO excuses to excel.
All that remains is for us to provide the effort.
Life is a dream when you can do something you love, unfettered from the shackles of conformity.
