Been at this for a year and a half.

Last Update: December 24, 2018

And man has that time flown, where the heck did all that time go? Anyway, I wanted to give an update on how to be really successful here at Wealthy Affiliate! Except.... I'm not. I'm one of those people who have to do it the wrong way first. And I'm not through the wrong-way phase of my progress yet.

Oh, sure I've made my first dollar, I've had a couple people sign up, do nothing for a couple of months, and then drop out. I've learned enough to have created a few awesome websites for other people and even have one who pays me to maintain that website every month.

And that doesn't mean a hill of beans. Because I'm still a novice at affiliate marketing.

I wake up in the middle of the night with ideas screaming in my head. I dream of having unfathomable success with my website. I work on it every minute of every day, every chance I get. I've worked through the Online Certification Training and I'm halfway through the Affiliate Bootcamp. But alas, no real success.

It doesn't matter.

I know I will get to that point where I've learned what I need to learn and I'll be experiencing the success I know is possible here because other people have done it, LOTS of other people have stayed on track and worked at it with monumental effort, and made it. I will make it. I KNOW I will make it. No ifs, ands, or buts.

Promise me!

If you are reading this post, that you will NEVER GIVE UP. Giving up should not be in your vocabulary. Never ever ever quit. You are so CLOSE to being at the peak of success. One person summits that peak in three months, another one takes two years. What if absolute success for you will take two and a half years? Three? Is that success any less admirable? Are you going to quit a MONTH before you make it? You have to put your time in! No matter how much it is. The only ones who don't make it, are the ones who quit.

Look at it this way, once you get that plane off the ground, the sky is the LIMIT! You just have to get it off the GROUND!!!

Keisha, have a wonderful holiday too! I think people kinda crawl in their shell and don't want anyone to know they aren't at the top of their game yet, but we all have to go through it to get on top of that game! Just wanted to let other people know not to quit just because they haven't made it yet!

Steve

P.S., I followed you!

The fact that you have someone that pays you to maintain a site is success. You have made your first dollar another success. You have made it through Online Certification Training and halfway through the Affiliate Bootcamp no small task . I am right there also through oec and halfway through bootcamp. That in of itself is not easy.
Little successes will add to the bigger successes down the road my friend!!

Thank you I needed to see this it's not that I'm lazy and I definitely have never thought about giving up.

I do understand working at it for a period of time Time and then backing off.

There are times that I draw a blank as far as what to blog about in my one website.

My niche is in art, and my sight is in videos supplies techniques featuring artist different types of art and welcoming every artist out there to share their story and their art.

Anyways I just wanted to say thank you for this post, it encourages me that there are others out there that are sticking to their guns but haven't made it as far as a monetary gain yet.

But I'm like you I can see that there are many in this group who have made quite a significant amount of money doing exactly what we're training and learning how to do.

So I'm not going anywhere even if I can only put in an hour every two days or whatever it is.

Because actually I'm in the process of trying to buy a house, and I'm proposing to my girlfriend with an actual ring this Christmas.

So there's quite a bit going on, but it's not going to stop me in my progress in building my business.

Hi Steve, sounds like just being here and having accomplished what you have is a huge step towards your success. I guess it also depends on how we individually measure our success too. Just being here, pushing through the training and having not given up, is success in a way:)
All the best moving forward!
