Being an Enemy to Myself

Last Update: September 15, 2015

Hey everyone,

I wanted to say that I am very fortunate that I have found WA. I am realizing though that my worst enemy here is me.

This is why I say this. I have been here since May 9th and have seen some really great success stories of people within WA. I believe this is because they follow the training and work very hard doing it.

I have been very discouraged lately and have not been so successful. I believe the reason is because I am not following the training that well and probably should have finished the training by now.

  • I try to take short cuts with the training instead of trying to understand everything.
  • I skip around because I think I may not need everything.
  • I stop one project and start another because I think I will make money with another idea instead.

This is true, I started the Affiliate Bootcamp, but for some reason decided to stop doing that without finishing it and start another site with the Get Started Here courses.

There are many other reasons why I feel I am not successful right now and maybe due to a discouraged mind taking over most of the time. I guess what I am trying to say is I will not be successful unless I finish the training and stop being an enemy to myself.

What I am going to do from here is finish what I have started, "Get Started Here" and absolutely keep a positive mindset. I will give updates to help me keep on the right track.

Best wishes to all and thank you everyone for your support,

Some times we really do get in our own way with all the diversions we allow to use our time!
Hang in there,

This happens to us all. There is no time table to finish the training, so take as long as you need. The key is to follow the training and to do the tasks exactly as they are laid out. The great thing about the training at WA is that you can go back anytime you need!

I definitely understand about being your own worst enemy. The last few months, I've let things in my life distract me greatly from the momentum I had started to build and I had gone a couple of months without updating my website. I am definitely one that gets discouraged as well and big changes at my job had led to distraction and discouragement.

So now that I've rolled down the hill very fast like a boulder, I've got to get back and start the climb again. It can be done, but it takes focus and motivation. We have all the tools here and MANY wonderful people here to help, it just comes down to us actually using the tools and resources we have here.

Some things I am beginning to realize is how important it is to have a solid plan of where you want your website/online business to go and writing down the steps/goals to get there. Also, it is VERY important to research the niche you have chosen. What are people looking for the most in my niche? Do I know the niche as well as I thought? Can I provide the help/solution to whatever it is people are needing in that niche? These are things I'm really thinking about heavily and may have to do a major revamp of my site. Now I'm not talking about changing the particular niche I've chosen as it is a nice authority site and generally geared about my experiences within this niche and some reviews of products in that niche, but is it really helping people?

So with all that in mind, I'm in heavy research mode before I get fully back into working on my website regularly. I think once I do that, and keep motivated, I will definitely get back on track and start making some money, but the key is to help people first and once they see you can provide them with the solution, the money will start to come in.

Thank you, your words mean a lot to me. Even though I just started this niche of mine and was discouraged and stopped for a while I think I should know more about it. At least this way I may have more interest in putting more into it. You are right if I am more motivated to helping people than receiving money I will work harder.

Thanks again

I can relate

give yourself a new mantra, repeat it to yourself out loud as often as you can:

& keep doing it even when it starts to feel old and stale, that is when it is starting to work on you!
