One Small Step, One Giant Leap
I Did It!!.....I finally completed the first course of the Bootcamp!....it felt like i'd landed on the moon!
I know, I know it's not quite as thrilling an achievement as setting foot on the moon, neither is it one that ranks very highly on peoples lists of accomplishments. However I would like to look upon it as a small step, as apposed to a giant Leap. Then again it all depends on the perspective of the achievement.
First Day of School
When I first arrived here at Wealthy Affiliate I was a young lad of 46 and had all the fears you'd expect of a lad that age. Where was my Mum when I needed her, i'll never make any friends here, what if I do something wrong, will I get told off.....all the usual fears we all have experienced in the early years of our schooling.
Ok, so I'm exaggerating a little with the Moon and School thing here. But the point is that I knew absolutely nothing on arrival and when I mean nothing I mean it. My ability on a computer was literally sending and receiving emails, which I knew on the first day that I logged in wasn't going to get me too far.
Fast Forward Nine Months...
What felt like an extremely difficult labour, filled with sleepless nights and a yearning for it all to be over, I finally did it...I completed the first course!!
Although only up until recently have I managed to spend any real time on the course, (due to a busy work schedule) I stuck with it and persevered up till this moment and this is my point. I had no prior knowledge and minimal time to actually learn anything here, but I stuck with it.
My accomplishment can only really be measured by myself and how far I have progressed and increased my understanding with affiliate marketing and my new found skill of using a computer, in comparison to my previous knowledge of the two.
I arrived with no knowledge, finished course one and now I know something, will complete course two and know a little more, then three, then four.....
Small steps and persistence can lead to big change, it's how man reached the moon.
All the best
