5 X The Income & ONLY 4 Posts in 6 months!
I was just reading another WA member's post @DomW and his Successful 6 years here. And had this HUGE realisation of how just being consistent, (how little I have done this year) but having patience is just so key in online business.
Here, let me explain.
I will have been here 2 years at the end of Nov this year. For the first year to 14 months I was just going for it, to the tune of 3 posts a week for a good six months of that time. Which to some, isn't much, as I see people blog 5 to 7 days a week.
But doing that in the first year had me earn just over $400, which to the impatient, and I want to get rich next week just wouldn't fly, hence why NEWBIES here BAIL after a few months... (good luck finding a better system than what you have right here!)
GOTTA be patient newbies
In February this year after coming back from a family holiday, I truly wanted to increase my blog post writing because I now have evidence this thing really works!! (hmmm, this thing always worked - perhaps it is because "I worked" ?)
BUT... I had a HUGE curve ball (actually a couple) thrown at me, which just derailed me. One was to do with a post on my Website and the other was a family matter.
And derail it did!
Going from the momentum of writing 3 posts a week, I have written ONLY 4 POSTS in the past 6 months!! I never realised this until I checked that today. OMG! What have I been doing?
The fact I did come here to WA late 2016, followed the system, set up my website, got consistent writing posts, knew that it takes time to make money online, have been really patient and NEVER giving up ~
has my income thus far, grow to 5 times already than my first year... and it will be more in a few months - the end of my 2nd year! Just imagine if I had of stayed consistent and increased my productivity - the income I would be earning? It would be a whole lot more than I am earning right now, but in saying that, I am still grateful for what I have received.
So finally I have dusted myself off, know that my hard work right now, my consistency and patience will pay me well into the future. And boy, all I can say is Passive Income is a beautiful thing!
It really comes down to just keep on, keeping on.
Make Hay While the Sun Shines!
A HUGE lesson I have learned here however, is, and you have probably heard the saying "Make hay while the sun shines"
Life and unexpected things can happen, and they can derail us. But when things are going well, and you work hard at your business - you learn to not let most things around you stop you.
And seriously, YOUR future self will be very happy you did!
Thanks for reading and do let me know if something has derailed you and your progress here, but what YOU did to get over it and get on with it.
Would love to read your experience.
Never give up on your WA and Website dreams guys!
