Struggling?

Last Update: March 02, 2017

I started out with a bang, here at WA. I went through several months just clicking away, working on my website, learning as I completed courses and Bootcamp lessons, and blogging consistently. Then one day, I woke up and had this feeling of complete blah!

I don't know what changed or why, but I have been completely lethargic towards my work here as of late. I am in great need of some kind of motivation.

My other jobs are really busy right now, as I am working between 70 and 80 hours per week. My goal is to be able to one day let those other jobs go and be self sufficient with my endeavors here at WA. BUT, I AM STRUGGLING!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, Bobby. I hear you and I am with you. Sorry to hear your situation, life is hard, but it's nice challenges. I believe you are in progress, approaching to success. Hang in there. I look at what I receive here in WA is not financial gain alone, I still don't get any cent, but I am sure, it will pay off some time in the future. But I got a lot of non-financial gain, such as; great knowledge, connect with great people, be motivated by friends in WA, gradually increase knowledge and understanding about the business, which really worth with investment and energy. Please take some rest and be relax, you are approaching to success. CHEERS
Kind regards,

Hi Bobby
Sorry to read that you're in a bit of a rut at the moment but if you stick with it, it will be temporary.
It's not your speed, but your direction, that is going to determine the outcome for you and slow progress is still progress after all. Don't beat yourself up about what you are currently unable to do in your business through no fault of your own, just do what you can when you can and give yourself a pat on the back for whatever you achieve, however small it may be.
It seems that your current feelings towards your WA business are being caused by your workload in your day jobs rather than by WA so just keep reminding yourself of that.
Remind yourself also of the reason why you came on board with WA to begin with and re-visit the goals you had. If those goals are still relevant, keep focusing on them. If they're not, find some new ones and ask yourself whether you're most likely to achieve them through your job or through you WA business. Whether they are your original goals or new ones, pin them on a board and set aside some time to meditate and visualize on them each day. That will probably give you more motivation in your present situation than spending the same amount of time trying to go through the trainings when your mindset isn't right.
I see from the responses that you are getting from your fellow members of the WA Community that there are lots of people rooting for you and giving you the kind of moral support and encouragement that you would not likely get from your work colleagues and certainly not from your managers - and we haven't even met you lol!
The only way you can fail is if you give up, so please stick to it, do what you can when you can, remember that even though you are not moving forward as fast you want, you are still moving forward. WA is not a race. Enjoying the journey is just as important as enjoying the destination.
Your current situation won't last so please don't do something you may permanently regret just because you are temporarily struggling.
Hope this helps in some way, however small.
Hope to see you in Vegas - you can me a beer!
Kind regards
Richard :-)

My life is pretty hectic too and you are welcome to read my bio, but it's good to take a break, once in a while. When you come back, you are refreshed. It is natural to need a break under those circumstances and even under the best scenarios!

Then, when you feel like it, return and use it as downtime to read comments in WA. Procrastination is one thing, needing a break is another. Yes, one day at a time. Little by little and bit by bit.

Allow yourself rest. The feeling of wanting to work / 'play' will come back. It seems more like play, when you think about it. What a refreshing change from the not so promising grind!

70 to 80 hours! Wow. I am assuming normal life like family, chores, etc, as well. Maybe you just needed a little fun time? We all have a ebbs and flows.
Maybe take some time to look at other people's sites through the site comments section. Take in one of Jay's training videos.
Most of all, relax. It should be fun. We can't all keep up the honeymoon faze, it leads to burnout.
Don't give up. You can do this.

I hear you Bobby.

I only started just over a month ago, but I've been putting in anything up to 16 hours a day to get my site up and running.

I've got some content, and I'm starting to make progress. Got a few people visiting, but nothing converting as yet.

But I'm pretty close to losing my house, and unable to find a job. The economy is pretty bad for my industry right now.

I use to work 80-90 hour weeks, and now I actually miss them.

So lately I've been feeling a little bit the same way as you.

I think it's natural to have the highs and the lows.

All I can do, and I'd give you the same advice, is keep going.

You only lose if you quit. So keep plugging away as much as you can, and focus on the end goal.

One foot in front of the other until you get out of the swamp, and realise that the sun will always come out eventually.
