Don’t Get Derailed

It harder to get back on the track than to overcome challenges.

Derailment Started in September 2018

In mid-September 2018, I had surgery for a hernia I caused while working on my farm. It did not go too well. Days after the surgery the bulge re-appeared. The doctor blamed me for the reoccurrence. I kept getting ‘behinder and behinder’ on the farm work but had more time for WA. After the original operation was corrected, I realized the reoccurrence was my fault – I selected the wrong doctor the first time.

With most of my time spent working on WA, I was able to get my ranking down to 2669. After the correction, the challenge began. Catching up on the farm. I DID NOT MEET THE CHALLENGE HEAD-ON. I did not balance my time. Frustration set in and at the end of the now LONG days, I did little on WA. By June 2019 my ranking was 39,000. From June-August, I worked both farm and WA BUT WA was still had not achieved a balance and I STOPPED keeping up with my Ranking spreadsheet.

Angry and Pis.ed!

It wasn’t until December 20 that reality set in. I set up my spreadsheet with a goal in mind. Rank 200 by March 1, 2020. Wrongly, I was thinking Ambassadors were the top 200. {DUH -old timers disease}. No matter my goal is still 200. Ambassador will have to wait for a while.

How am I Doing?

AWESOME!!!

Why Do I Share This?

For your pity? NO For your praises? NO

I share because each of us will run into challenges. One of my sisters had challenges and left WA. Another sister is currently having challenges and she needs WA. I don’t want to see this Wonder Woman give up. She can and will overcome especially with the help, encouragement, and Love from her WA FAMILY. I have seen other brothers and sisters with challenges and pray that they too will overcome.

SET REASONABLE GOALS. STAY CONSISTANT IN YOUR WORKING TOWARDS THEM

AND

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP

Read, or re-read my WA post 2 Secrets to Succe$ and become the MULE who overcame his challenge.

Blessings, your WA brother

Leo--rank has no monetary benefit whatsoever, but it IS a motivator. As you strive for it, and interact with the community, you will notice that you will learn a lot there, which in turn will help you grow your business!

Jeff,
Absolutely right. That is what I use the spreadsheet for. Daily add the new rank and if it goes in the wrong direction I put it in red. A
When it gets closer to my goal I add a colorful background. No background if it goes the wrong way - that makes it stand out. WA has so much training, a person could spend 8 hr/day for years and not get through it all. In addition, the help given by our WA brothers and sisters is invaluable.
I DO NOT consider WA a community, I refer to WA as a FAMILY with the AWESOME Patriarchs Papa Kyle and Papa Carson as our 'parents'
Thanks for your comment and support,
Blessings,
your WA brother,
Leo

I actually like must challenges. Kicking them in the a.. is rewarding. Not succeeding at something is a learning experience and not a failure if like you said 'get back up and keep going.

Thanks for sharing your progress.
Challenges can come in all shapes and sizes and I wish you all the very best.
Getting back up after a challenge and moving forward is something I always do.
I work to always remain as consistent as I can.
I like the spreadsheet you have done for rankings.
All the best as you continue your progress here in WA.

Yes, they do and must of them are fun to give a good kick out of the way. I use the SS to help me keep on track.
I will quit WA only after they put me in the 'pine box'
Keep up the work. My next goals will be Ambassador {enjoy helping my WA brothers and sisters and Vegas 2021.
And may this year be your best ever.
