W.A. is a Reflection of Life

Last Update: September 09, 2017

At the risk of sounding a bit Forrest Gump-ish, life is like Wealthy Affiliate, in that we are always teaching and learning simultaneously. As we go through our course levels and tasks, we all pull from experiences garnered from our individual lives to lay a foundation of understanding; then we turn around and share the gained knowledge with others grappling to comprehend these same concepts.

I know I do this on a daily basis with co-workers as well as with my children. It’s the continuum of the push me-pull you that life is all about.

As an example, when participating in the Site Comment process, upon reading the material laid out in someone’s post, I end up drawing from my past as a common denominator to make their post come alive for me. The memory of a long-forgotten event or experience suddenly comes bubbling forward unexpectedly, supplying me with a resource to make credible and applicable comments to the person who wrote the post or article. It’s pretty cool, actually.

The threads of each person’s life is intertwined into a rich tapestry of experiences derived from jobs where we’ve worked, people we’ve met, relationships we’ve encountered, places we’ve lived, material we’ve written, even thoughts we’ve had, and so much more.

So the next time you read someone’s blog, keep an open mind and learn from what that person is addressing from their own perspective; let your mind re-visit something from your life that the subject matter resonates with; share your connection with the author; teach others what you’ve then derived from that conversation. It’s a simple recipe that one can apply to life in general and to W.A. in specific. Plus it’s just plain fun!

Thanks, folks!

Very well said Priscilla! Often times people go at this alone and I'm so thankful to WA that we don't have to do this alone and have this community to learn from and motivate each other.
