Misery Does NOT Love Company In My World
Please do not waste your time at pity parties. Life is tough. Very tough. The saying that misery loves company is very true for most people. That is why there are so many people that want to have pity parties.
I am sorry, I do not have time to attend your pity party. After all, I do not have time to attend my own pity party.
In my world, I acknowledge the problem. I acknowledge the pain, the hurt, the frustrations, the fears...whatever. I then try to find the positive side of the situation. The lesson to be learned. Then I do everything possible to move on. If I am focusing on a "problem," I have lost focus on what I want to achieve. I do not have time to dwell on my misfortunes. Neither do you.
Every day, I see so many people wasting their time on pity parties. I look outside my shop and see people heading to a liquor store next door. Once again, they need something to help them drown their sorrows. Oh...the sad faces I see of people walking by. Even here in Wealthy Affiliate, every day I see so many people pleading with others to come to their pity party.
When I was a young girl, my mother complained that I lived in La, La Land. Out of frustration, she constantly complained that I needed to get my head out of the clouds. I must admit, for a long time we had a very strained relationship as result. I was happy in La, La Land. Today, I am thrilled to know that my "problem" is that I live in La, La Land. My mother allowed me to be able to recognize who I am. I am a dreamer. My past does not define my future. Yours should not either. Unless you let it.
To the outside world, it may appear that I have been moving at a snails pace. That is until I accomplish my goal. When my new friends and I make it to Vegas 2020, sporting our sunglasses that is covering up our tired eyes and newest wrinkles; it will look like we were overnight sensations. Yet, I promise you - my success will the result of three years worth of work that involved figuring out how to turn my mistakes/our mistakes into learning lessons that could be implemented.
Thank God for Mistakes. It is only through trial and error that we will succeed.
A couple weeks ago I wrote about how I ignored Kyle and the decision cost me a lot of money since I was not doing product reviews. After attending Jay's last Friday webinar about Introduction to Google Analytics, I discovered that Google Search Console is not very accurate. Or at least for January /February/ Not only is it a few days behind, my website is roughly a 100 more visits per day than what is showing up in Google Search Console.
With Jay's training, I have learned to see exactly how much time people are spending on the most popular pages. And the least. I know where I want to focus my time. I already knew which pages were the most popular from Google Search Console. That part matched at least.
Instead of dwelling on the negatives, I will chalk this error up to being a dingy blonde at times. I am rejoicing that in all probability, this website's results might be my ticket in being able to helping at least 300 people improve their lives for the better by joining WA. This lesson will help me earn a trip to Vegas 2020. And then again, this Google might make some kind of change that hurts the website's traffic. That is a risk in this business. My eggs are not all in one basket.
In my world, I do not have time to dwell on my fears. In my world, misery does NOT love company.
I sincerely hope that you will choose to ignore the things that are making you miserable. The things that you can not control or change. Focus on what you want. Now....if you or a loved one is sick. PLEASE do what is necessary to take care of your health. Otherwise, everything else is meaningless.
I hope that you have wonderful, productive week.
