WA is a Marathon "Not a Sprint"

Last Update: November 21, 2018

We hear or read it over and over again here at WA! This is a marathon not a sprint! For newbies like me, I'm sure you received messages from fellow members suggesting to take the training at your own pace. You can do it! Keep hustling! :)

You know what? We normally don't hear these in other environment all the time (well, maybe sometimes, but not all the time). And yet, we hear it here from members whom we've never even met face to face.

All the warm welcome, all the words of encouragement, the positive energy propelled me to move forward!

Last month I registered as a premium member and quiet honestly, things seemed hazy at that time... I don't recall exactly how I landed here, but there I was, I found myself taking the training. I always believe things happen for a reason.

Speaking of training.. technical terminologies were mostly foreign to me! What the heck is SEO? Lol, but guess what? I learned slowly but surely and managed to start building my own website, my foundation, my brand!

Similar to someone who's looking to participate in a race and all of a sudden, they register and comes the actual marathon training. Week after week, month after month, they're out there pounding the pavement -the distance gets longer and longer! Training days can be easy, at times it can be hard. Maybe a sports injury could result their training to be off track.

It does sound like Wealthy Affiliate Marathon Training, doesn't it? There will be bumps on the road in this business, just like any business! This is not a get-rich-quick deal! It is our own race, we will do it at our own pace! We know one thing, we have the entire community's support along the way!

So, I'm sitting here pondering, typing these final lines. My heart is full! I'm humbled! And for anyone out there who run marathons like me, you know exactly what it feels like running 26.2 miles. It is a challenge, but it is totally worth it!

Completely agree, WA is a Marathon 'Not a Sprint'!

Let's ALL do this! It will be worth it!

Thank you for reading and following me! From my family to yours... Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving! Forever THANKFUL to all of you!
