I'll tell you why. That'srepparttar price we pay for progress.

I use to wonder why I put myself throughrepparttar 102019 agony and frustration.

Well, I realized that althoughrepparttar 102020 Internet has its definite pitfalls,repparttar 102021 benefits far outweighrepparttar 102022 cost. When I look beyondrepparttar 102023 frustration torepparttar 102024 benefits, I can appreciate its value.

So often in our lives we missrepparttar 102025 beauty ofrepparttar 102026 forest because we are to busy focusing onrepparttar 102027 giant trees. The giant trees arerepparttar 102028 obstacles we must overcome in order to reach our goals.

If we focus onrepparttar 102029 obstacles (giant trees) in our lives we miss out on all that life has to offer us. We fail to reach our goals because ofrepparttar 102030 obstacles that we see standing in our way.

The funny thing about obstacles is that they are not always as big as we make them seem. In fact, how you look at a situation determines whether or not it is really an obstacle. A situation can either be a stumbling block (obstacle) or a stepping stone (opportunity).

When faced with an unfavorable situation you must make a conscious decision about how to handle it. Will you treat it as an obstacle or will you transform it into an opportunity?

Just as I face frustrations in operating an online business (which was one of my goals), you too will face frustrations in pursuing your own personal goals. But frustration isrepparttar 102031 price that you must pay for progress.

You Don't Have To Be Perfect

I don't have to be perfect and neither do you.

Do you want to write articles to promote your business? Do it.

What if it's not perfect?

It doesn't matter. You'll get better with practice.

I write at least an article a week and I still haven't got it right.

I make spelling errors, use poor grammar, but I keep plugging. I'll keep at it until I get it right.

I just wrote a free ebook. So far I've revised it 5 times and will probably have to revise it another 100 times.

If I waited for it to be perfect, it still wouldn't be in circulation.

Don't wait to be perfect. Start from right where you are and make corrections as you go.
