Have you ever dreamed about success? I have! And I am quite sure that my success is growing. In fact, it does! Are you ready for a successful dream?
Years ago, I started writing a series of booklets for children.
Not religious, not following one particular faith, just written from my soul and the knowledge I have picked up during my life on this marble called earth.
My life motto is:
Teach the children well, and we can change the world in a decade.
And I truly believe that it’s really important what we teach our children. You know, when I look around me on the streets, how much waste is just thrown out on the streets, I wonder, what did their mom and dads teach them? This is only one example of the behavior of people I really don’t get.
Anyway, back to the booklet. I wanted to get my colored booklets printed and published. The blue one is for thankfulness, the orange can teach children about health, and so on, they all have a different color, that’s why I called them that way. I don’t know if you have ever tried to get a book published, that is not that easy as it sounds. After visiting a dozen publishers, I gave up. I quit. Despite my motivation, it was very demotivating. For years, the booklets disappeared in a cupboard drawer. But it remained to itch in my head. I was not satisfied with the way things went. I couldn’t let some dull publisher crush my dream.
So I sat down and thought things over, and in a split second, it came to my mind that I could publish my booklets on the internet. If only I had the knowledge to develop a website…..
Success = Take Action
Success is inextricably bound up with taking action!
Out of all the research I have done before, I decided to start my online education. I found an affordable platform with convenient video courses, called Wealthy Affiliate (WA in short). As you understand, I am not a native English speaker. I was very surprised to receive ongoing help from people from all over the world, nothing compared to what I have read and experienced at any forum or community, offline or online. I found out that WA a unique concept follows. Every member uses the pay-it-forward concept. Besides that, WA is innovative and sits on top of new marketing developments. The marketing lessons are being updated as soon as there are new trends.
In the meantime, it’s now almost 5 years ago since I joined WA and took my first wavering steps towards an online future, I have made more friends, received more prayers, positive vibrations, advice, wisdom, counsel, personal and professional help and empathy from my friends in WA than I have ever received in my 59+ years offline life before.
Ever heard of overnight success? We all want to be successful in life. But that is easier said than done, and unfortunately, there is still no clear step-by-step plan to get to the top. Don’t stare blindly at successful people. They seemed to have a very rapid breakthrough, but if you take a closer look at their history, you will find out that years have gone by and they have had to work extremely hard.
Just curious, what is your definition of success?
As you can read, mine had nothing to do with financial success, merely a heart feeling which I wanted to spread. Although I must admit, the affiliate program of WA does bring me a nice additional income. I never expected that I could earn money with my websites.
I have a dream about… how about you?
What drives you? Poem? Music? Cooking? Writing? Fishing? I can go on for ages. When you haven’t the faintest idea what you could display on a website you can read my 926 niche ideas. You might be surprised to find there your GO. And find the itch from within your soul and maybe you want to work out your dream also to share with the world.A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work. ~ Colin Powel Click To Tweet
My doubts and struggles
Building a website was the easiest part, getting my butt out there, publishing in front of millions of readers was for me really a very high threshold. And thanks to the encouragement of my friends at WA I stepped out of my shell and comfort zone. This really is an amazing, wonderful, motivating and caring community.
I am not promising you mountains of money, that’ s up to you, how you monetize your dream and if you even want that. I do promise you a lifetime experience of a warm-hearted and caring community.

Quotes about dreams and success
A goal without a plan is just a wish
You can only fail if you try nothing
Success determines how you deal with your disappointments
Do not dream about your life, but live your dreams
Today’s dreams are the material for tomorrow
There is no elevator to success, we have to take the stairs
Make sure that you also look at how far you have come
It is better to sleep a night about what you are planning than to lie awake about what you have done
Only when you let go of what you cannot change can you take what you can change
To make your dreams come true, you first have to wake up
Later, when I grow up … you will not wait for that, do you?
Shall we dream that all our wishes come true?
