The best way I know of to maintain focus and belief is taking consistent action and monitoring the activity dashboard here. We will start seeing results here over time, even if sometimes those results are small in the beginning. Small successes turn into big successes over time.Seeing other people getting results can be an inspiring thing and as we watch the live chat and activity dashboard we see people who are getting results and how hard they are working also.The training itself helps us ma

I am working through the training here and enjoying it. I like the step by step structure since it helps eliminate the doubt that comes in making you wonder if you're headed in the right direction.Between the training, the live chat where there are plenty of good people with good advice and the activity dashboard, we have the opportunity to learn quite a bit here.The training is routinely updated as well, I have noticed, so once I am finished with this first round of training, I will cycle bac

We all lead really busy lives, which means our time is limited in too many cases. I am learning how to manage my time better and try to put out valuable and informative content on my site.I have been advised that we need to have the reader in mind, of course, and have images and videos along with our written content when possible. I know I have enjoyed blogs that I read a great deal more when solid content and videos and images were incorporated.On days like today, when my time is limited som

So many people get started online and wind up with dismal results. I was one of those people. There has to be a daily structure and the ability to ask questions if we still need help.All that is found within wealthy affiliate. Each day that we log in and work on some of the training, take the action steps, get in the chat and attempt to answer somebody's question or simply encourage somebody, we have made some progress.Each day that we do some research on relevant content, find some affiliat

We all know that learning a new skill when we were little was a little scary. Learning to ride a bike was a little scary. Learning to drive was a little scary when we were 14-16 years of age. As adults learning to communicate effectively with other people, if we didn't learn that skill through practice as we were growing up, can be scary as well.On the flip side of that, we did learn to ride a bike and now getting the bike rolling and keeping our balance is second nature. We did learn how t

Think for a minute about all the people in the world that wish they knew of a better way. Our culture teaches people to work for somebody else which means that we are brought up with everybody pointing us, unknowingly, to limit our thinking.We are taught to finish high school, finish college, and get a good job with benefits. Well, as we go through high school and college, by the way I am actually for both of them, of course, we are going through structured training.Structured training is the

There are actually plenty of different opinions and some controversy over how social media is used and should be used. Like anything else it can certainly be used for good things, but can be used in the wrong way also.In the beginning, to my knowledge, it was used to simply keep up with people and look up others you have lost touch with. That's a good way to use it, of course. There are plenty of stories of people finding each other again on facebook and other sites.Some people use social me

I wrote about distractions in the last blog post and how important it is to avoid them. I'll say again that the structure in the training here is helping me avoid distractions at this point, and seeing some actual progress here as well.We can stay plenty busy within this site with the training, working on our sites, and working to leave comments for other people and helping them out. That structure and focus is a good thing.When we all got to this site we all had a goal, somewhere we would li

I'm writing this post because of the fact that distractions have cost me a great deal of money over the years, and I allowed them to. So, I hope this helps somebody to avoid them.There are distractions offline as well as online, but the ones online when we turn our computer on are the ones that bother me most. Offline distractions are mostly in the category of work and family. Family especially has to take a priority, but once you are able to log back in, try to refocus and go back to work.

The real benefit of the structured training that is found on this site is that it keeps members focused daily and helps us keep track of our progress. I haven't found any other programs that are as detailed with the training as wealthy affiliate is.People need to be able to get started first of all, which is the first step to accomplishing something, and then see that the potential is there and that they are making progress.We have that with wealthy affiliate. The videos here do an excellent
