Will I Be Send To The Naughty Corner? - Feb 2018 update

Let me first say a big CONGRATULATIONS to all the SWAG's and WAGG's out there - I've read as many of your reports as my intermittent internet allowed and were very motivated and inspired by everybody's progress!

We had a good month, despite our mobile internet that was playing up causing much

frustration. But even there did WA help us to remain cool, (calm?) and collected! When I called our ISP and feeling that I'm going to loose my cool and my calm this morning, GailLowe's post has just managed to load (after almost 5 minutes) before my internet once again played up. So while hearing "You are number 128 in the queue", I managed to read her blogpost, "What to do if you miss the SWAG targets: DON'T PANIC!". If you haven't read it - it comes with recommendation! :-) Thank you Gail!

I have manged to do most of our Feb homework. On the Theme, I'm not too happy with the one that I've got, but I decided that I'll wait for WP's Gutenberg update - so I'm not going to waste too much time on this.

I'm afraid Kyle's going to be send me to the naughty corner for a few things though - I don't have all my keywords, but I've got 15 that I think is REALLY good - Hubby has 46 good keywords on his list. And I didn't do 12 posts to my website, but I've done 11'600 words. I also didn't spend much time in Live Chat - but I tried to help as many people everywhere else. And of course, blogging here on WA was a bigger challenge for me than I have imagined. :-)

But I have learned HEAPS about WA, about the lovely community here, about my business, and a lot of self-discovery as I pushed through some personal barriers. :-)

Yes, Bo has said from the beginning that this should be treated as a business, with business hours and should be taken seriously - and I thought I did - I'm a fairly disciplined person. It is amazing how the teacher appears when the student is ready eh? I read a tiny book which has proven that I have a few more areas to work on and I feel that I have grown so much in my commitment this past month.

Watching Bo's videos often was a challenge (because of internet issues), but I'm happy that we could watch so many of them and learn so much from them! Not everything is implemented yet, but hopefully if our ISP deliver on their promises, I'll be able to work and get that done too!

To all the lovely WA-family - thank you for your encouragement. Just reading everybody's posts - the trainings - whatever is going on here at Wealthy Affiliate, is so exciting and motivating. Reading about KerriBrink's 4c profit, or EddySalomon's $9465.05 - how can one not be inspired to keep pushing - since like Kerri said so beautifully - it is not about the amount of money, but the fact that we are taught here, really works.

So to everybody who left a comment, liked a comment, send a PM, made a blog post - I thank you for the participation you indirectly and directly had in my accomplishments for this month. I hope to do better in March!

I really like Bo's motto and I hope he doesn't mind that I borrow it, but it really represents so well what Wealthy Affiliate is about, when he greets us with:

"Onwards and Upwards!"

PS: I started this post
between 10 and 11 am this morning. Between a slow laptop, intermittent
internet and several restarts (thanks goodness that WA save so
frequently!!!) it is just before 9pm and I hope I am FINALLY going to be
able to post this! Any rewards for patience and determination? (Or is
this called stupidity?) :-) LOL!

I remember a while ago I had some troubles but were resolved in a few days. Wow, you have patience, I would not have been able to do what you have done.

As well as that you have done most of your month's work, except posts of course - Brilliant!

Thanks Steve. Man, I tell you, there was a few close calls, but I managed to persevere in containing my frustration. Let's hope I have fared well enough to have passed that "test" and to deserve a better month!

Thank you for your encouragement - much appreciated!

Wishing you an excellent month to come as well!

Hi Sharlee. Thank you for posting this and for recommending my post too. What an honour. I'm glad I was able to help. Sorry to hear about your internet connection, that must be very frustrating. Maybe you could write your post offline and then only transfer them when you have a better connection - just a thought.
And ice-cream in Vegas will be our reward. Hard work will pay off so let's be kind to ourselves and applaud our progress. Well done you! :) Gail

Hi Gail

Your post really was awesome, just at the perfect time when I needed it the most! And the coincidence that my internet was letting it through at just that precise moment... it just made me realize that I was about to bark up the wrong tree and gave me enough time to breath deeply and speak kindly. :-)

Yes, I often write my posts offline and sometimes even pen + paper.

Oh yes, when I get frustrated I try to drown it in many mental pictures of ice cream in Vegas. :-) LOL! Looking forward to meeting you there Gail!

"Onward and Upward" as Bo says - it's the only way!

Hi, Sharlee! :) :) :)

I’m so happy to hear about your progress and even though you’re thinking about that naughty corner, I see you are way ahead of most of us. It’s great to read this excellent post that sums up the hard work, struggle and joy for accomplishing results in this first month. I can see the determination that’s in between the lines of your message. Keep up the great work! :)

And thanks for recommending Gail Lowe’s post; I’ll go immediately over there to read it! :)

Hi Henry
Awww, you are always so kind and supportive - thank you Henry! It would have been hard pressed, to almost impossible, to have made it without this awesome community's support and encouragement, of which you are a significant part. Thank you! :-)
"Onwards and Upwards" - may March be a good month for all of us! :-)

Sharlee, I'm sure you won't be sent to the naughty corner, but if you are make sure to take plenty of chocolate icecream.

Your not the only one with uncompleted tasks. I'm in a similar situation! But let's put that behind us and move on with the great month of March and all it brings with it.

See you soon :)

All the best.

Valerie

Valerie, you are the perfect friend to have! I'll make sure that I take enough ice cream for both of us! :-)

Yes, we can only do what we can - everything is not always smooth sailing, but when it is - then it's good.

May March be a better month for both of us and for all the other friends who also had a challenging month!

That's lovely Sharlee.
You always make me smile, along with a little giggle! It does the heart good. Or as I used hear when I was a child - 'it warms the cockles of the heart'. I always wondered what the cockle's were, but didn't dare question. I imagined cockle shells but didn't see where they would fit within the heart!

In the end, I gave up wondering and focused on eating as much Chocolate IceCream as I could get :)

Oh my goodness Valerie, and with English being my 2nd language I definitely wouldn't have had a clue what "cockles of the heart" may be either - I probably would have given them a blank stare and then followed you to the IceCream bowl! :-) LOL!

Ha..ha..!! What will they do with us? I hate to think!. Please no-one answer that question :)

I saw a good saying the other day, it said that we should all take a cue from the weather, since it take no notice of criticism - so even if they do answer the question, we'll just... well... continue eating ice cream eh? :-) LOL!

Sharlee, you are doing soo good. Don't feel down for not having achieved all your goals. Always do your best and strive for improvement then you'll arrive at your goal sooner or later.

It is good though having mentors like Kyle or Bo, giving us a kick onwards.

Let's Go Get the Success,
:-)

I agree with you, Pernilla...it is indeed very good to have mentors to give us the push many of us need :)

Thanks Pernilla, you are so kind and encouraging!
Oh yes, I agree, if it wasn't for Kyle and Bo, I would not have gotten half this frustrated, which means I would have taken it in my stride and wouldn't have accomplished this much either! So yes, I am forever grateful to them!
Yes, for sure, I'm still running to go get it! :-)
Wishing you much success Pernilla!

Fully agreed James! If not for them (and for the rest of the team members), I would probably have had an attitude of "tomorrow is another day" - but now I need to get it done NOW. Which is a good thing. Sometimes we need that little kick!
Wishing you all the best James!

I feel your pain! Our internet is not the most amazing either. Our blogging is also being stalled by a few other things on our personal horizon, so my downtime is being redirected to lots of traditional pen and paper activity.

And sure, we can treat it like a business. But my experience of private business was also of fasting and feasting at times! Notwithstanding the steady effort. It’s such a test of patience for me!

Aww Ivy - here's an e-hug for you! And some e-ice cream too! (If that would be of any help?) :-) LOL! Yes, I've also been onto pen an paper at times, and Notepad as well.

I fully agree about that test of patience - for me too! I said to Hubby last night that it REALLY takes ALL my effort not to call them up and kick up a stench that would be smelled right to the other end of the earth. He just laughed and said that our WA-family won't appreciate it if that smell comes wafting past their windows... LOL!

Oh the "pleasures" of running our own businesses eh? :-)

Wishing you all the very best for March, may all that's stalling your progress evaporate! :-)

HAhaha, thanks Sharlee! We’ve got each other, and all the good vibes here to carry us along on our slowest days. There’s always that.

Fully agree that the good vibes on here definitely makes difficult days much more bearable and sometimes even much better!
Onward and Upwards Ivy! :-)
