I'm Falling Behind!
Last Update: Sep 30, 2022
Did you know that this is just an excuse to quit?
If you’re a beginner, it’s always a huge learning curve to start something new, especially if you have no prior experience with anything “technical”.
And as you start and progress through the training, at times you will feel like your falling behind. If you get stuck on one lesson for several days, or even weeks, the feeling of falling behind sets in.
This often happens due to 2 reasons:
- You’re comparing yourself to others.
- Life gets in the way.
The most important thing you can do is not to compare yourself to others.
For instance “Bob” got lesson #4 in 2 days and I’m taking 2 weeks. This doesn’t mean Bob is doing better than you.
Maybe his skillset for that lesson was previously learned whereas you started from scratch.
Maybe in lesson #5, he’ll move slowly because it’s totally new, and you’ll fly through for other reasons.
And we all have lives outside of WA that often “get in the way”.
What if at some point you get sick and can’t move forward? Or you’ve gone on a well deserved vacation?
Does this mean you're falling behind? No, because the training is evergreen. It’ll be here when you get back.
Just because the starter training is 10 steps doesn’t mean you have to get through it in 7 days, 10 days, etc..
You work through it at your own pace, which is different for everyone.
You must reset your mindset.
When you “think” you’re falling behind, STOP… and reset. The internet isn’t going anywhere. You’re business isn’t going anywhere.
It’s up to you to pick up where you left off, and not let those negative thoughts give you any reason to quit.
Find some way to move your business forward, each day, and you will succeed. Even on vacation, I find time to answer emails and respond to comments.
So stop thinking you’re falling behind, lol. Because you’re NOT!
