I am not sure of exactly how the story goes, but I am going to try and make the best of it. An owner gets disgusted with his Donkey and throws him into a hole. The owner starts throwing dirt into the hole onto the Donkey to bury him alive. Each shovel of dirt carries a death sentence for the Donkey, you'd think. But, as the owner throws the dirt into the hole, the Donkey shakes it of his back and uses the dirt to go higher and higher in the hole until he was able to get out and run off. The Don
Like any mountain in your life it looks big at first, but once you start the climb you are on your way. Take breaks, re-access your surroundings and then move to the next plateau. I see this business venture with WA as just that. A business that I can achieve success if I just do a little or a lot, but I must never stand still. In others words...I must be persistent.
I am finding that with the wealth of content and the ability to reach some of the great business minds in the world, WA is the platform for a great teaching experience. There are so many people with great ideas on WA, it is quite overwhelming, but an awesome opportunity to learn for others. WA teaches you step by step how to achieve success and there are great people to learn from on WA. Take the time to learn and be teachable, then go out and DO IT! I have made that pledge to myself.
Like any seed that grows once it is planted, it takes a bit of time before results are seen. But, by nurturing it with water and sun it eventually grows and then it yields it's fruit. Business is the same way, you get what you put into it. What you do today will pay off tomorrow or next week. What you do this month will pay off next month. Don't stop moving forward with your WA business or any business for that matter. Do a lot or a little, but don't stop doing it will eventually pay off.
Sometimes it is good to think outside the box, but it is not always good. Have you ever heard the saying, "don't reinvent the wheel?" In business you sometimes have to be flexible. It could be a good thing to think outside the box, but don't forsake following another's method that works. If it works for them it might work for you. Just be open and flexible.
I chose a profile image of the Freedom Tower, but why? As a kid from Brooklyn I saw something that was built destroyed later in my life, along with the lives of countless people, one friend and one cousin. But, the new Freedom Tower symbolizes resilience something we all have to develop in order to achieve success in life and in business. So I chose the Freedom Tower, because to me it captures something we all need and that is the ability to come back, to endure, to preserver in life and in bus
I like the fact that so many have reached out to me since joining WA. This is really a support staff. I hope to be a supporter of new people as they come into the WA community and I learn the ropes. I believe when we push others to achieve we achieve ourselves. After all putting others ahead of ourselves is not always easy, but it is the right thing. Positive!
I looked for lots of reasons not to get involved with WA, but I couldn't find any real negative stuff. Great opportunity, very excited to learn and prosper. Looking forward to being part of the WA community. Hello to everyone!
