Blog Post: 2 Years in WA, Is Vegas Possible Already

My goal was to reach WA Vegas conference this year but I didn't achieve it. That was a disappointment and I don't understand why the conversion rates have been so little. Anyway, I'll make it next year then. Many times in life I've missed the goal but I've achieved it later and the feeling has still been awesome.

In this post I want to share you one important message!

Do you know a world-famous motivational speaker Jim Rohn? He met his mentor Earl Shoaff when Jim was 25 years old. Earl started mentoring him in the business and life. Jim learned evergreen principles of success that always work.

For example, the law of sowing and reaping, "If you do x thing, you will achieve this thing." Sometimes Jim asked, "How are you so sure it will work? Will it really work out?" Shoaff answered, "Trust me."

Earl Shoaff had seen the process many times and he knew what works. When you sow the seeds of success, you will also reap the harvest success.

And it worked out. By the time when Jim Rohn was 31 years old he had become a millionaire (which was worth much more money back then than nowadays, by the way.)

Trust the Process

Many times in life I have been too impatient. I have wanted to see the things happen so fast and see the results right away. I have seen other people around me who made much faster progress and wondered, "How did they do it? I was doing exactly same things but I didn't achieve those results."

This has happened to me at least with the following things:

  • Spanish learning
  • Sports
  • Online business
  • Chess

But I have realized comparing myself to each other doesn't really make progress or happiness. I need to do the work to make it. And always, ALWAYS the process has worked. Let me share a few examples:

1.At school I was the worst swimmer in our class of 40 boys. I vomited twice only after the warm up. I didn't understand why I was so bad. One day I decided this must change. I went to swim 3-4 times a week consistently. I studied it diligently and improved every week. After a year we had a new test at school. I was second best out of 40. The only one who was better was a guy who had been swimming in a club for +10 years. The process worked. I put in the work diligently and I went from the last place to the second place.

2.When I was young I played chess a lot. I always wanted to improve and I won many Finnish championships in my own age groups. Still, it felt that some guys were making progress faster and easier and I did. Well, I kept on practicing and made good progress. Even though I haven't played chess recently I am still at least 4th best in Finland (and most likely the best chess player in WA lol ;) The process worked again. I remember when I was young one day I practiced for 18 hours in a row basically without any breaks.

3.Let's talk about this online business thing. The process still feels slow on a daily basis but when I look around and I look at my statistics I realize that the process works!

The chart shows the traffic on YourOnlineRevenue.com during the last year. My record for daily unique visitors in October was 588 visitors in a day and as you can see it's growing fast. I also started doing YouTube some time ago. It felt that it isn't going to work but now I see the real potential:

It's still not huge but I haven't even put much effort and it's exponentially growing. I had to keep 1 month break from YouTube because I wasn't able to access my account but view time was still growing 80%/month because I had put in the work beforehand.

I am now very excited about YouTube and I will start doing video blog also soon starting with the title, "How to Live in Bulgaria as a Digital Nomad?"


So, let this message encourage you and me: Let's do the work today and trust the process.

Let me know below what you think and share your story.

Do you have examples from your life when "the process" worked even though you didn't believe at first?

Reading your article comes at the right time for me. Even though every persons life-situation is different the basic principle to achieve success, may it be slow and steady, is still the same: JUST DO THE WORK!!
In some cases it is really hard to even take the first step for many people. This is because like me we have to weigh the options between our demanding responsibilities, doing to much at once and wanting to live a life free off restraints. And still I have noticed some people around me being scared to stay persistent and take that firm leap of faith that the system will work. Why is that? Maybe some inspiration for a next article.
Let me know.

Well, you know the old saying, "You can lead a horse to water, but you don't make him drink." Some people just let fear of failure to control their lives.

Totally agree. I think in my case I just need to train myself to focus on one thing at a time. When you have a creative brain you tend to want to do a lot at once..LOL

Roope, Thanks for sharing this very motivational blog. Some years ago I was very fortunate to meet Jim Rohn at a seminar. When I get stuck I think of some of his great guidelines and it snaps me back to where I should be.

Admittedly something I've never been very good at in the past was staying on target and following through the process of hard work. Oftentimes giving in to that little voice in my head saying "you can't do this", "what if you don't make it". But this time is different, this time I will follow through and this time I will be patient. I don't know how I'm going to achieve my version of success just yet, but I know a little a day will go a long way and I have absolute faith that I have inside me now what it takes to get me there! #trusttheprocess

Well, Kyle shared your post in an email, Roope, so I figured if Kyle is sharing it, I better read it!

One of the things that really shocked me was my ability to stay focused.

I have years of experience with multi-level marketing, and it's all about the numbers and being held accountable. Although I understand and believe in the importance of being held accountable, I found it a bit too structured. So, imagine my surprise when I was going through the Certification with just me, myself, and I at the table! I discovered that I could really hold myself accountable and commit to the tasks I needed to accomplish. Granted, there's always room for improvement and ways to better yourself, but it's amazing to discover how much we can accomplish when we focus our efforts.

I have reviewed a few of your posts, Roope, so I'm not surprised at your success. All the best in 2018!

I can relate to this. It's amazing how it can change when you start to focus on your own real, personal dreams and success. I can truly help many more people my way than I ever could in the corporate world!

I was raised by my grandparents. When I was growing up we lived out in the country with no transportation. We had moved there from a town where there had always been a lot of public transportation. My grandmother never learned to frive.

So here we were, my grandmother, my little brother and I, stuck out in the country and my grandmother didn't know any of our neighbors (which changed with time, but even so, she didn't ask for rides much because of her pride.)

This kept my brother and I from taking part in extracurricular activities. At least any that didn't really grab my grandfather's attention, like baseball for my brother.

I had always wanted to learn an instrument. I thought it rather ridiculous that I lived in a house with a baby grand piano, but didn't play an instrument myself. As I got older, I made new friends and their parents would commit to driving me to and from some after school activities.

The first thing I did was join the rifle and dance corps in the marching band. I still wanted to play, but thought it much to late to learn. Well, it turned out I wasn't alone. Several other kids wanted to learn an instrument, even if we wouldn't catch up to the others.

I chose to play the flute. I was also determined to catch up and make the winter orchestra. I practiced every minute I got with my grandmother, who played piano beautifully, sitting over my shoulder telling me when I was off key. Not only did I make the orchestra by the next year, I sat second chair!

If you have the determination to succeed and take advantage of the opportunities to get involved in a proven system, it will work! It will not happen overnight, but it will work!

Thank you for such an inspiring post. It harkens back to times long ago that I treasure. My grandmother, my brother and even a couple of those friends are gone from this world and I miss them dearly, but it is still good to go back.

I'm afraid that my children missed out on some of the lessons I learned by living in the circumstances I lived in. Small town mindsets are much different than the suburban lives they were fortunate enough to lead. There are things to be learned from a privileged , suburban lifestyle as well.

Have a great weekend! I look forward to your next update!

I play chess, I love a challenge so I challenge you to a game. Great to see your success in life playing out, much more of the same to you.

Nowadays I usually avoid playing chess because I concentrate on building the online business. Do you have elo rating? I can check you on Fide site?

I play pool, chess, ping pong and workout and still have time for my business. I don't play chess regularly but I love a challenge and a chess game won't take more than 30 min to win or lose. I don't know what elo rating is.... but I will not be an easy win. All in good fun, if you are ever in Chicago I will challenge you to a game of pool, ping pong, arm wrestling, whatever, lol. I do play on Gameknot.com if you ever heard of them under my name luisloor.

Recently I played chess and I played 8 hours in a row without raising my ass from the chair. So it's better for me to avoid because otherwise I play too much :D Yes, years ago I also played on Gameknot sometimes.
