Expectations and Realities


Sometimes we set expectations that are way beyond realities.

Working online has been my favorite way of spending my free time since the last part of 2010 when I was assigned in another place for which I wouldn’t be able to come home on a daily basis.

In my desire to allocate my spare time on a more productive way, I decided to find another source of income, something which could help me augment my financial needs, and that was the start of my online journey.

I am a person who loves adventures and challenges, and most of all, I want to be different. I always aim to make things to the highest level.  This is probably the reason why I decided to enter this complicated online world when no one from among my peers and was doing it.

What would be more difficult than starting out something you have no knowledge or idea and you know you can ask no one? This is my first challenge. A big challenge actually. But that didn’t stop me from doing what I want. My desire to be successful in this field is overwhelming and I know that I have a big potential in this kind of pursuit.

The starting point is much more difficult than I expected. The thing is, I really don’t know how and where to start. It took me a long time before I could even find a right site. My first year was spent through trial-and-error method which caused to waste a big slice of my time. But every failure and mistake that I made gave a good result.

I discovered several sites which had helped me earned some decent income. Everyday is new opportunity to learn, which helped me with my progress.

But one thing that is keeping me from fulfilling my ultimate online goal remains undone.

My dream of having a passive income from writing has never been materialized.

Maybe, I didn’t take it seriously

Maybe, I didn’t give enough time.

Maybe, I didn’t put enough effort.

Whatever the reasons were, I know I learned several lessons.

“Success doesn’t come overnight”

It requires a lot of patience and perseverance.

I set aside this particular field and learned other things instead.

I became a “superhuman” as what they called those who maintain an excellent track record in one of my sites.

and in fact until this time, I have and maintained that title.

I reached the highest level in some sites.

I entered into different investment sites.

I became successful in other fields of the online platform.

That made me earned a decent income considering that I am doing my online work on a part time.

But my interest in exploring the online writing world and discovering other related field is still here with me.

It doesn’t matter if I have to start all over again.

I am going to make it this time.

Benefits of Working From Home

Perhaps I just need to give additional amount of time for this activity so as to get the most from it.

Come and join me as I share with you my online experiences that maybe able to help in one way or another.

As the saying goes, experience is the best teacher. Technically speaking, most of these things hasn’t been taught in school.

Thank you for dropping by.
