Endure It! Success Is Hard Work! - and a word about root canal

Last Update: May 14, 2016

"Endure it!" I tell myself. "Success is hard work!" "Do you want a hole in your smile?"

I'm sitting in a dentist chair waiting for the fourth attempt at this root canal. The novocaine shot to the roof of my mouth WAS NOT FUN!!!! I need this tooth because the ones behind it are gone, and this missing tooth would show in my smile. The dentist will be back in a minute. CAN'T WAIT!!!!

Ugh! Another unsuccessful attempt. The root is calcified and more medication needs to be put in....three more weeks then the same procedure again! This is the fifth visit to keep this tooth and a pearly smile!

You have to endure some things to get what you want in this life. If you want any good thing, it seems you have experience pain of some kind to get it. I'm thinking of Olympic champions, great relationships and successful businesses as just a few examples.

Have you experienced 'pain' here at WA? I have in a few ways. Tops on the list is lack of time to spend on my site. I will retire on September 1st from carrying mail for the US Postal Service. My route requires 7 miles of walking and 62 sets of stairs over. I'm almost 60, so I am a bit tired by the time I get home. After dinner and home chores... the 'pain' comes, as I am too tired to tackle my next lesson, blog, or extensive emails.

Then there is the 'pain' of learning website and SEO maneuvering and dedication to Wealthy Affiliate. What is outdated? What is BEST? Plugin - no plugin? Media insertion? Ambassadors leaving? Regular posting? Affiliations? Analytics?

I know I will be having some serious time to spend very shortly, and feel I've done a pretty good job with the little time I have had. I have met some wonderful people and have endured the pains of learning things outside my comfort zone. Yes, I endure it. I know success is hard work. I am comfortable with this, as I know I am doing it to widen my pearly smile... Here's to our success!

You're not alone in the journey, we need to improve everyday and with endurance, no doubt that we will have success even small, then after we learned so much, big success is coming.

I don't mind getting my teeth cleaned at the dentist, and I have luckily never had a root canal. But.......I have had a couple of crowns and I do NOT like it at all......especially that nasty novocaine!! But.......it has to be done. Like you said......some things are uncomfortable and we just need to do it and get it over with!! Cheers to success!!
