I Can Do It Journal


The first post I ever created at the Wealthy Affiliate has opened my “I can do it journal.” That was my first blog ever. That was on Tuesday, July 26, 2016. And it was a little bit after I upgraded from monthly to the yearly premium membership. 

I took advantage of the first week of the Free starter membership and paid only $19 in September 2015. Until July 2016. I was a monthly member and was paying $49 per month. I never regretted going premium. This was also the way to look at this job in a long term. 

 

Making a commitment 


On that day I committed on 8 hours per day full time learning for the entire month, figuring out how the Wealthy Affiliate platform works, listening to the lessons and going through the tasks.

When I made a commitment and decided to make a plan and stick with it, I realized that I had no idea how to break through the writing barrier.

This was when a great idea came to my mind. To write a journal about my journey at the Wealthy Affiliate. I found it better to write straight away as a blog within the Wealthy Affiliate community so that other members can read and comment on it, to give suggestions and so on 🙂

That Tuesday, July 26th I named as the first day of my year of success.

My Wealthy Affiliate rank was 4616. I used the Live Chat for the first time after a while and got a support on using the referral links and posting them on Facebook. I was so amazed by the Wealthy Affiliate support and a live chat which was real and professional 🙂

Everything was so new for me. I had no idea what I was going to go through. It seemed at the same time very simple and easy but also very new, complicated and difficult to manage. Oh my, that was just because I was a complete newbie in an online marketing.

 

Finding a way to stay focused 


Those days I was attending 2 days long Vipassana (freestyle) meditation course. I learned there how to go through the situations and tasks I am not familiar with by just repeating a few amazing sentences:

This is an experiment.
I don’t know what will happen.
Anything can happen.
Let’s see what happens.

That was my mantra and I loved it. It perfectly fitted in the entire deal with my new job – experiment 🙂

So as I said, I promised to myself and apparently to the community as well that I was going to stick to my plan:
8 hours full time working for the entire following month.

As I already said before, I was not so confident with writing in English so that others could read my texts officially, so I asked a community to help me with this. To throw some suggestions and assistance even when I don’t ask for it.

I knew that that way was the best way for me to improve my English, and also get ready for my website content.

I just knew that I had to break that ice 🙂

However, that first day I was awake until 3:30 in the morning, working on my goals, reading and listening to the videos. I started working at 12:33 am. I was already falling asleep. I accomplished three hours for that day and had five more hours to go 🙂

Also, whenever I have written my first Wealthy Affiliate blog post and wanted to publish it, the system was asking for the tags. And I didn’t have an idea what I was supposed to write. And I just left Kyle’s name over there lol

Anyways, it was fun 🙂

Well, since I established my “I can do it” journal, I’ve been writing a blog post within the Wealthy Affiliate on a daily basis (with some very rare exceptions).

My plan is to introduce you to each day of my journey towards success.

        This is awesome. I left Kyle’s name for the tag too for I had no idea what it meant. I know you are proud of your achievement. I can see that you have worked hard and I know hard work brings success.
        You are not a Newbie anymore but the learning process continues. I sincerely hope you will continue to do well.
        Thanks for the lovely post.

          Yes, it’s so great seeing that I am not a newbie anymore, and reading my old posts gives me an accurate picture of everything I learned since I joined the Wealthy Affiliate.
          I can’t believe you tagged Kyle too lol
          That’s funny :)))

          Thanks for stopping by.
          Best,

          How interesting? One of the things that used to hold me back before I made my first dollar online was a lack of focus.I went to a Silva Method course which really helped. It was all about being still, getting your brain waves into a state of alpha and putting yourself in a position to manifest what you want out of life. Some of it was a bit too new age but I totally agree with what you have said in this post – first decide and then focus. Great post.

          • Sunny says:

            Omg Jon the silva method??? Can you please tell me something more about it? I was so curious about that and even wanted to join. What are the results you got?
            Thanks for stopping by 🙂
            Hope to hear from you!

            Best,
