Hello again to you my loyal readers.My very first article which I published sometime last year dealt withrepparttar 131831 topic of positive thinking and success.Today I am going to talk to you about your dreams and what they mean to your life's purpose.I am going to give you a glimpse into my life and howrepparttar 131832 before-mentioned topic relates to me.

Inrepparttar 131833 year 2000 , I suddenly had this crazy idea that I was going to learn to build websites.The idea just sprang “out ofrepparttar 131834 blue” and I did not know a single thing about what I was getting into.Somehow I gotrepparttar 131835 money to pay forrepparttar 131836 web design course that I needed to do , and three months later I finishedrepparttar 131837 course and my first website (determination).

During this period of time , I was laughed at and ridiculed by some of my co-workers who thought that my new field of endeavor was a crackpot.I even gave up on myself for a few months just to easerepparttar 131838 tension and to avertrepparttar 131839 criticisms.Eventually , I came around to and decided that I was going to do it and follow things through no matter what (courage).

For period of three years , I marketed my website ( without a computer of my own) from obscurity torepparttar 131840 top ofrepparttar 131841 search engines.You may be asking yourself , “how did he do it “ ? I spent my lunch hour (most of it !!) and any free time that I got to work on it , day after day without any visible signs of progress (persistence).
