A newbie at Wealthy Affiliate, I am already considering myself as a regular visitor, customer or client of Site Support within Wealthy Affiliate platform. As computer and information technology has not been my priority to study deeper, it would be a great challenge for me adapting to a new environment.
Coming from a traditional business coach which mostly involved research and development, product and process improvement, food safety mentoring and the like, Wealthy Affiliate is a totally different world for me.
My coaching and mentoring job involved hands-on training, so it has a personal connection with people and less with computer and information technology. I only know few strategies with Microsoft office.
FAREWELL TO CURRENT TRADITIONAL JOBS
I have considered it well and detailed the pros and cons of my decision. I have tabulated them down.
|Availability of income generating traditional jobs for immediate need.||Still risky to stress out myself which is the cause of my stroke. Cash still sufficient for immediate need.|
|Many opportunities for consultancy project.||Tiring and not sustainable.|
|Exposure to different food business learning opportunity.||Lack of time allotment to focus on new available and timely knowledge.|
|My heart’s prayer granted. I take it as an affirmation from God in my decision to focus on online business rather than traditional ones.||Current client did not renew contract.|
|Possible new and big client still uncertain for contract signing.|
|Wealthy Affiliate is a business where I have feel I own my world. It makes me happy engaging with it.||Food consultancy is a business which I feel is still a job. My empathy to my clients’ problems pile up as stress over me.|
|Wealthy affiliate – long waiting but passive income.||Current jobs – immediate income but not sustainable.|
|More freedom in managing time with Wealthy Affiliate and allocate what is due to family and friends.||Current lack of quality time for my family and friends.|
|Being able to help Philippine economy and several employees in my consultancy.||Being able to help many people and entities around the world at Wealthy Affiliate.|
|Going out from home to meet clients is Covid-19 infection risky.||Staying home for an online business prevents health risk.|
These are just some of my priority concerns. The list will be too long if I will not stop from here. Contemplating on the above concerns and seeking advised from different persons whom I am thinking will give me wise counsel, I decided to let go of my jobs even before any of them considered renewing or not. The process of letting go just became easier.
I am now focusing at Wealthy Affiliate and family responsibilities.

At this point in my life, would you say that I had the right decision?
Do you see my tabulated facts valid? Or do you see something else that I have overlooked?
Your comment will be much appreciated. Please take time to give me yours my dear reader.
STARTING NEW CHAPTER IN YOUR LIFE
I can write articles such as this. But I still have to learn a lot of things like the basic question of what is computer and information technology about. The purposes of application systems, techniques in using them and a lot more. I don’t even know if I am using the right terminologies. It is like, I am grasping blindfolded in the dark. Oww… too much? Just wanting to express where I am coming from.
I can carefully and patiently dig Google and learn, but I am seeing more efficiency and productivity if I can save time and energy in reading or watching the tools provided by Wealthy Affiliate than looking for good materials elsewhere.
LIVING LIFE IN LOVE
But despite the hurdles and obstacles I may be facing in my new route to run, shall I lose hope and faith? Definitely not!
Instead, I am living the life I chose in love. Life here at Wealthy Affiliate is unquestionable for me. A little flexibility and adaptation. I may be quite slow in my pace. But being passionate in what I do multiplies my ability to get things done. Make yours, too!
MOTIVATIONAL QOUTES FOR BEGINNERS LIKE ME
Let me share you 6 quotes that motivated or inspired me;
- “Knowing is not enough, we must apply.
Willing is not enough, we must do”. Wolfgang von Goethe
2. “The secret of getting ahead is getting started”. Mark Twain
3. “The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your potential…these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence”. Confucius
4. “For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” The Bible (NIV) Jeremiah 29:11
5. “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” The Bible (NIV) Matthew 6:26
6. “The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of His bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will not borrow for none”. The Bible (NIV) Deuteronomy 28:12
These particular quotes awaken my heart and mind. Without knowledge, we can always study and learn. Knowledge must be applied and how we used it will have an impact to our accomplishments. And I believe in the Bible promises of God desiring good plans for me, of blessing me more than He blesses the sparrows and that includes the works of my hands. All these motivates me to weave my future here.
How about you? Do these quotes motivate you? Or are you holding on other quotes which has touched your life in a special way? Care sharing them in the comment space?
No matter what situation or environment we are in. We can always look on the positive things waiting for us behind it. There may be some letting go to lose our weight of obstacles that keep us from running or slowing our pace.
There are also ways to adapt and learn – from available tools, something that you have to unlock or from listening to those who have mastered or develop skills about your concern.
And when you lack the confidence and you are afraid to step on, think of those who have walk the same path ahead of you and how they achieved their goals. And believing in the promises of God will keep you away from anxiety but will go on, knowing that the blessings you are dreaming were already been given you. You just have to unlock where they are so you can claim them!
