I don't think I will be putting in any images on here. This is more somber than the first part because it has much to do with performance. It is my hopes that the things I say in this Resource will help others re-assess why they are here, and what might have happened to them along the way.

When I first came here, I was fired up. I did not look at online business as being something to give it a go, nor have I questioned how long it would take to achieve success. Even then, I knew this would depend entirely on me - and that I have serious issues that would make doing this more difficult for me than perhaps many others.

On January 1, 2010, I eagerly created my membership. A whole slew of things occurred during the next six years (actually seven years by the time the end of the year rolls around.) None of what I have to say here has anything to do with putting the blame anywhere except on myself and the measure of my ability. This is NOT something I want others measuring themselves by. Remember that we are all different and no two of us are the same.

In more or less a chronological order, without getting too much in detail, what my purposes here at WA were when I first joined, and what they came to be over the years, was nothing short of being in a trackless sea. It is in how I ultimately used this platform and what I got out of it and what I did NOT get out of it - all had to do with the baggage I brought in here, in spite of good intentions.

Hi Daniel.

I've been here for around 2 years and I struggle with writing on my website. I sometimes think that I perhaps chose the wrong niche. But you my friend, have the gift of writing and I would like to ask; have you found the right niche for yourself to write about? Perhaps a change may make the difference to you and subsequently you will be able to make a living from your website. I know that thought crosses my mind at times.

It appears to me that life here at WA is sustaining you and helping to keep you going. So I would say, do that which makes you content and fulfills you best. Regards, Annie.

Hi there
You have been a fighter, keep fighting and picking yourself up whenever.No one will do it for you but you.
Success MUST not happen in a month or a year, there are some of us who are slow, so just don't give up.

Yes, each one of us have to get there our own way. This is an excellent example of what happens when we do not follow the training here and the advice of those who are successful. Thank you for sharing, it is a warning to all- Just Do What Is Taught! The fancy does not matter- nor the elaborate- just do what is taught here, suggested from members, adding your own touch of personality.

Daniel,... you will make it. I feel that you are proving that by showing an extremely positive attitude plus tremendous perseverance while remaining quite loyal and determined to both yourself and WA; especially after the multiple years of hardships and uncertainties that you have faced. I hope that better times are coming your way very soon... God Bless and cheers.... :)
