The Future Is Now

Last Update: June 30, 2019

One week ago today, I made the executive decision that I was done. I was done waiting around for my life to somehow miraculously transform in to this amazing life I had always pictured myself living. So far that's all I had done, picture this awesome life. It was insanity.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result. These words are usually credited to the acclaimed genius Albert Einstein.

This time around, I knew I needed a better game plan, one I had not tried before, or even thought of before, one that would be the one, the one that would end the insanity.


I had tried this, and looked into that, but I found nothing that would be transformational. I was just about to write all "make money from home" opportunities off as big ole scams. That's when the rain stopped, and the skies parted. I ran across Wealthy Affiliates while researching something totally unrelated to the make money at home opportunities. I didn't know what it was, but there it was, Wealthy Affiliates... I really had no clue, but for whatever reason, I read the article, and joined immediately. That was one week ago today...


Day one I was thinking to myself, oh yeah, I got this. Day two I was thinking, oh hell. What am I doing here, I can't even come up with a niche to work with, much less build a website. The Hello's and Welcome's were coming in daily, something I was totally un- familiar with at that point, but I was starting to feel a little better about my decision to join WA, since the Training was after all, very direct and seemed like it would be easy to follow. That's when sheer panic set in.

For me, school sucked 40 years ago, and I could not imagine learning this on my own was going to be any better 40 years later. In school, I was always the one standing out in the hall, in trouble for talking, or because I could'not stay in my seat, probably both. My inability to pay attention in class, or to focus on one thing at a time is something I have had to deal with my entire life. So naturally, I just knew training by myself inside WA would be next to impossible, and I was wasting my time.

I think that's when something clicked for me. Yeah, I still have to read and re- read, but the difference is, I really want this. I have the mind set... The thought of owning my own website, and having to be solely responsible for the success, or the failure of this website is very exciting. To make this a reality, I will have to show up, be present, and be accountable. If I can do this and continue to follow the training provided by WA, learn how to do it the right way, vs the wrong way, my possibilities for success are limitless.

Every time I start to feel a little overwhelmed, or having doubts, I get a message from someone going through the same thing. I can only wish I'd had this kind of support system in place when I was struggling to get through the school years.

Regardless of the past, the future for me is the now. I have stepped outside of my own mind, and taken a brave step forward. I will not look back; the past... is just that...I can now look forward to what tomorrow brings, and it feels really good.
