Walt Disney World or Bust… BUSTED!

A few years ago…ok more like 5 years ago, after listening to a training about internet marketing and setting goals, I was pumped up!  You know how it is right after you listen or watch a really good training, how you’re ready to take on the world and tell everyone about it…  at least for a good hour before reality and doubt set in.

Well in this hour of euphoria, I made a promise to my kids that in 6 months we would go to Walt Disney World because surely by then my business online would be going gang busters.

I had no plan on what I was going to do to meet my goal for a week, let alone the 6 months.  I changed nothing I was doing and really took no action that would translate into money.  I continued to watch trainings, give some half hearted effort on what I learned.  Deem that it didn’t work and move on to the next training.  I really didn’t change my daily activities at all.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

~Albert Einstein

Yes, it was insane that I expected different results, but I did just because I said so.  Well, belief is great and a huge part of achieving your goals BUT SO IS TARGETED FOCUSED ACTION!

Well, we never went to Walt Disney World and my daughters let me know for years what a failure I was and how I had lied to them.  I was heart broken!  I never intended to disappoint my kids and I had in a big way.

This situation would have stopped a less stubborn person in their tracks.  They would have given up.  But I didn’t give up!

But if you continue to dabble in this strategy and that strategy without committing to one strategy and working on it until you master it, you will be destined to fail.

You can do this! You can build a successful business online!  You need to be focused!  You need to plan!

  1. Hi Leslie,

    If I learned on thing in life, it was never to promise my kids anything lol. I always gave them a maybe because one never knows what life would bring. But hey, you were all pumped up and caught up in the moment.

    The reality is that yes, we can make money on line, but it does take time. There is no get rich quick ideas. That’s like playing lotto!

    It is business and business takes time and effort. As you know, you are plugging away at it and reap the monetary rewards as you go.

    What a great lesson shared!

    1. Thanks Donna! That is the thing I missed…the part that it would take time. Afterall, 6 months was time right 😉

      The part about building a business is that there is no time limit on when it will happen. You just keep plugging away, learning, sharing, building, adding value and the rewards begin to flow in.

      It has been really great connecting with you Donna!

    1. Yes Paola, most people continue to struggle because they jump from thing to thing looking for the silver bullet. They need to find a mentor, stick with them and see some success.

      Glad you find your way!

  2. Well, at least you know the value of taking action in a different direction when the current course isn’t working. A tough lesson to learn, but it’s in the past … best wishes for a better 2015! 🙂

  3. Hello,

    Very informative article.

    As Walt Disney says You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.
