Wealthy Affiliate is an online training platform that offers courses on affiliate marketing. Founded in 2005, it has grown to become a community of more than 1.4 million members comprising internet entrepreneurs and marketers.
Why is the Wealthy Affiliate Program so Good?
If you look around the Internet, there is no other similar program/website that offers so much and asks so little in return. This was the number one thing that made me create a FREE account and start exploring the website.
There are many benefits included and some of the biggest are:
- FREE to join and FREE to try out. Seriously – no credit card required. You are free to check the website, training, community. If you do not like it, simply stay a FREE member. You will have decent benefits and you will be able to participate as an affiliate – if that is what you like.
- Two amazing MAIN courses that will lead you from understanding the basics of affiliate marketing and SEO to creating an amazing website that is generating traffic and sales. You can start the course even if you have a FREE account.
- FREE elite web hosting + support. Yes, as a Premium member you can have up to 25 websites hosted here. You can also purchase domains and all that for the same price. You only pay for the domain renewal. Free members can host up to two websites.
- Many classrooms, tutorials, and live events. Here you can find and explore the whole website and every single tutorial or guide that was once made.
Also, every member can contribute to Wealthy Affiliate and earn money. This can be done by leaving comments through the Site Comments feature or by creating tutorials and courses. Either way, if you are willing to roll done your sleeves you will earn money.
- Two types of membership: PREMIUM and FREE. Premium membership offers no limits. You will be able to access all parts of the website, anytime and anywhere. Your commissions are also doubled.
Before going Premium check the website, community, and start with the training. If you see yourself as an online entrepreneur and working from the comfort of your home – you are welcome to join the club.
- Jaaxy Keyword Tool. Innovative, precise, and incredibly easy to use a keyword tool. A big factor of your online success is going to be the keywords you are targeting in your content. And this is where Jaaxy comes in handy.
Picking the right keywords will make you reach more people and potentially make more sales. Premium members can make the most out of this amazing tool, while free members have limited 30 searches. The good news is that this tool can be purchased separately from the membership.
- Ambassador Program. Another great thing about this community. A wealthy Affiliate is a pay-it-forward place. When I was starting I had so many people reach out to me, giving me pointers and providing me with free materials. By helping others you are helping yourself.
This is what I am doing right now. Helping new members and giving them guidance. Ambassadors are WA members who are either most active, most contributing or they are big helpers. The combination of all 3 will get you ambassador status. And you will earn money. Wealthy Affiliate has a special fund for Ambassadors of the website and they are granted each year.
- A special trip to the Wealthy Affiliate conference in Las Vegas. If you manage to get 300 premium referrals in one calendar year you got yourself a free trip to Vegas. Wealthy Affiliate will cover the expenses of your flight + the accommodation in beautiful Las Vegas.
You will meet Kyle and Carson and enjoy with other successful affiliates. This conference also includes parties, limo, and many other great surprises. All of this will be your present from Kyle and Carson for your outstanding work. Note that you DO NOT NEED to promote or sell Wealthy Affiliate if you do not want to.
Money Talk & Success Stories
I am sure you are very eager to hear the success stories of other members. Being successful online takes work, patience, and everyday effort.
The training you will receive here is going to serve as a backbone to your future online business.
Remember, most of the people here started without knowing anything about affiliate marketing, keywords, and SEO. And if they were able to reach success so can you.
Check out some of the many great stories that happened on Wealthy Affiliate.
Making Money Online is a Four-Step Process
Believe it or not, it is simple as that. In this chapter, I am going to show you how exactly the money is made online. I followed these steps and voila, my second blog is here. I am working from home, doing what I love and my blogs are making money.
Many before me followed this path and many will follow it after me, just like they will after you. So, without further ado let us jump to these four steps.
- Choose an Interest or a Niche
- Create Website Content
- Attract Visitors
- Earn Money
There you go. That is the secret behind making money online. At Wealthy Affiliate, this is the first thing you are going to learn. Now, let’s go a bit deeper into these four steps.
1. Choosing an Interest or a Niche
This is something your website will be all about. Usually, the best way to pick/find your niche is to find your passions or something you are good at. In case you did not know, the niche is a specialized segment of a market. That being said, almost anything can be your niche.
If your passion is gardening, gardening tools could be your niche. If you are interested in cars or car equipment – windshield glass could be your niche. You have all the freedom you want. I would just like to point out one thing.
There are some niches that are very popular and attract more people. Many jump into these niches thinking they will get more people. Unfortunately, most of them end up failing because there is no real passion to write about their topic. Do not make the same mistakes these people did. Make sure your website is about something you find interesting or love.
This approach will ensure you never quit your future online career.
2. Create Website Content
In order to create website content, you first need to set up a website. Creating a website is a piece of cake with Wealthy Affiliate. You will finish this process in one minute. They really simplified this process with the advanced SiteRubix platform. We are going to get to that part a little later. So, after you create your website it is time to fill it up with content.
This is the most important part of every website. Your success depends on how good and how well you will produce. Please know that what gets the people to your website is CONTENT. You could have the best-looking website and it still would not perform well without the content.
We will get into the content topic more detailed in our future posts. For now, it is good to know and have in mind that each one of your posts should be high quality, detailed and thorough and should contain at least 2000 words. I know you probably saw people saying 1000 words per post is good enough, but in reality, you will get little if anything with this approach.
I know this because I did the same with my first blog and in the end, my posts ranked very poorly. As per Google statistics, the number 1 ranked websites have around 2000 words. This is not a coincidence. It is also good to know that Google actually prefers one strong post (for example with 8000 words) vs 8 posts with 1000 words. So, one strong post will always rank better than lighter posts.
Google logic is that one thorough post provides all information for users in one place, so the visitors do not have the need to search any other websites to find more information. Wealthy Affiliate Program also teaches all to be consistent with their work. This means you should blog as much as possible. Consistency also tells Google you are serious about your work. And this will improve your rankings.
3. Attract Visitors
This part is done through your content. The process is simple. Visitor types specific term in the search engine and your website comes up within search results. Visitor clicks on your website and makes a purchase or he makes a subscription. Looks easy, doesn’t it?
Well, the process itself is, but getting to number 1 in search results is not easy. If you are ranked number 1 for a specific keyword this means you are really good or you are the only one who targeted that keyword.
Either way, this part where you try to rank up your website higher through strategies like (keywords, tags, links, image tags, headlines, etc.) is called SEO (Search Engine Optimization). This is what you will learn at Wealthy Affiliate as well.
You will understand what are keywords and how to apply them for the best effect, how to create your website, and how to write engaging and interesting content. They will also cover the part about images, tags and you will also learn how to run and scale a PPC campaign.
4. Earn Money
This is where it gets interesting. While some create blogs as a hobby and they do not plan on monetizing it, at the Wealthy Affiliate Program you are learned how to monetize your website and its content. Even though your blog is going to be a source of helping others in some way, there is no real reason to earn from each one of your posts.
Making money online is done through affiliate marketing. In case you are not familiar with the term, affiliate marketing gives blog owners the possibility to join affiliate programs of different companies.
If you are approved by the company, the next step is to advertise their product on your blog. You will receive affiliate links and banners and you will use them on your website. The most common way of promotion is a blog post. You will create a post that will target a specific keyword and if you did the job right – you will get the traffic you wanted. The form of your post can be a review, tutorial, guide, etc.
Of course, when you get the visitor to your website your content should inspire him to take action. The visitor should have enough information and to feel encouraged to take action after reading your post. This is done through high-quality content and a clean and engaging website design.
So, each time someone makes a purchase after clicking on your affiliate link or your banner, your will get a commission. Commission rates can vary from 2% to 80%.
That is how money is made online. You can participate in hundreds of affiliate programs and promote them on your website.
Now that you have an idea about what is the Wealthy Affiliate program for, we can go deeper and take an inside look.
Wealthy Affiliate and its Features
Wealthy Affiliate is an online platform/website that is or contains:
- Online Community
- Affiliate Marketing Training Center and Knowledge Base
- Website Hosting and Website Builder Platform
- Keyword Research
- Social Network
The best part about this platform in my opinion. Wealthy Affiliate has 1,5 million people who are already members and are participating in Live Chat, Live Events, and creating new and exciting training. I am not joking you, people here are one of the kindest you will ever find on the Internet.
Just after joining, I was welcomed by owners Kyle and Carson on my profile page and also via private message. Then the other members joined. They were all offering their help and congratulating me for joining the community. It was easy to start with my training and building my first website.
Whenever I needed help, whether I asked it on Live Chat or just created a question that was visible to all members, I got the answer within the first few minutes. Now, how cool is that? There are really a lot of successful people and affiliate marketing experts on Wealthy Affiliate who are eager to help anyone. This is a privilege only Wealthy Affiliate members have.
Another amazing thing I would have to point out is paying it forward attitude. This is something mentioned so often here on Wealthy Affiliate. If you want to receive a comment on your website or you would like for someone to leave feedback about your website in general, you are asked to do that first.
This kind of approach is what actually makes this community different from others. It always brings the best in you. When I first started I had millions of questions and all of them got answered by kind and willing members from Wealthy Affiliate. I probably wouldn’t still be a member up to this day if it weren’t for all those who were kind enough to share their knowledge and support.
But don’t take my word for it. Experience it for yourself. Join for FREE and see what I’m talking about.
Affiliate Marketing Training Center and Knowledge Base
Wealthy Affiliate platform offers two main courses for you to take part in. The first course is called Online Entrepreneur Certification (OEC) and it consists of 50 lessons that are divided into 5 sections.
- Getting Started
- Building Your Website and Producing Traffic
- Making Money
- Mastering Social Networks and Social Engagement
- Maximizing Your Success Through Content Creation
1. Getting Started
As you can see, the first lessons are here to help you better understand the basics of affiliate marketing and start building your first online business. You will learn about niches, keywords, and you will create your first website. You will also learn how to create quality content and what it takes to be successful online.
Afterward, you will be introduced to more advanced online marketing strategies.
Each course is really easy to follow and understand. You just really need basic computer knowledge to follow the lessons in the course. The great news is that most of the lessons contain a video instruction or tutorial so it is even easier to understand the lesson after watching it.
You can ACCESS the TRAINING even if you do not have the ACCOUNT.
2. Building Your Website and Producing Traffic
Second lesson is mostly about content. You will learn the principles of website traffic, how to create content that converts, and understanding how to use WordPress.
This second course also covers how to choose and set your domain, how to transfer your website to your domain, how to create a lot of traffic from product reviews, how to get traffic from targeting low competition keywords, making you content engaging and much more.
I believe this part is most interesting to you, am I right? Well, if you follow all the steps and do not procrastinate you will start to see the results. And yes, your website will start making money.
Your content will reach your targeted audience and people will start to click on your affiliate links. If you are convincing and honest enough, they will make a purchase. And you will earn a commission.
It is easy to understand how affiliate marketing works. However, to get people to come to your website and click on your link takes time and effort.
As we already talked about, making money online is a process and not a get-rich-quick scheme. Your next online business will grow as time goes by.
You will get more recognition and more authority with more quality posts. Remember, there are many who succeeded before you and are now making 4 -5 figure monthly income.
The key here is to stay on track and NEVER QUIT. Keep creating, keep learning and use this knowledge to upgrade your website ranking and experience.
In this lesson, you will learn the benefits of affiliate networks (and which ones are the best), how to monetize reviews on your website and how to earn revenue through single product reviews.
You will also learn the difference between earning big commissions and earning pennies on your website, how to earn through affiliate programs in your niche, how to effectively incorporate affiliate links in your content etc.
Basically, after this lesson you will learn advanced techniques that are making the difference between making money and staying profitless.
You will love everything here.
4. Mastering Social Networks and Social Engagement
Another really important part of increasing your conversion and overall reach. Social engagement means being someone who stands behind his work. Someone who is willing to share their thoughts and work with others.
It also means that you will be getting feedback from people and you must be willing to invest in building relationships with these people. This will have a major impact on your later career and online brand.
Social networks are powerful tools in getting more attention and recognition for your online business.
Knowing what social networks should you focus and what kind of content should you favorite is one of the many things you will learn in this lesson.
Other really important stuff you will benefit from are :
- What does social marketing mean to your website
- Making your content and website a place to engage
- How to become a Facebook master
- How Twitter really works and how to use it the right way
- Leveraging Google
- Easy ways to share and earn through sharing

- Using Pinterest to get more traffic
- How to amplify the shareability of any content you create
Social networks are a part of the future and every successful blogger uses them as a way of advertising and a way of creating a strong connection with the people.
You will see for yourself it means to have a good social circle and which benefits you will have after your first Tweets and Facebook or Pinterest posts.
When you realize how the website traffic is getting up, you will never think about leaving social media.
It will be an endless fun socializing with people interested in your work.
5. Maximizing Your Success Through Content Creation
As we already talked about, the number 1 thing about your website is your content.
Anyone who comes to your website is there because you found a way to inspire him/her with a good headline or you have an answer to his/hers question. In other words, you hit the spot.
If you were honest, engaging and you were not misleading – you can potentially get a valuable click, sale, follower, or subscriber.
So, if your content is able to find a way to the potential readers – you are doing a good job. And that is what this lesson is all about.
You will learn more about content production and how to do it effectively, how to make people read and actually engage in your content, how to create a visually appealing website.
You will also understand how to scale your traffic, content, and rankings in a cumulative way. You will become present on Bing and Yahoo and you will learn how to properly use webmaster tools and benefit from them.
Once you finish Lesson 5, you will see just how much you achieved. Your website will have 40+ posts, you will see people engaging and commenting and you will start earning some money.
And the most important thing, your online property is alive and people are interested in it.
Isn’t that something? Something that is just yours, it gets people to engage and it makes you money.
With every new day, you will want to create more and improve the looks of your website.
If you stay on the path and finish this Course while applying everything you learned – you will never think about getting back or God Forbid quit.
The investment of your time and effort is going to make you feel prouder than ever.
Have faith in yourself, take small steps but take them each day, try not to procrastinate and you will reach your financial and personal goals.
The older your website gets, the more recognition it will get from Google and this will result in better rankings.
So, keep producing and keep creating, improve every day and you will see the joy of success many of the others who joined Wealthy Affiliate already have.
I am sure that by now you get what is Wealthy Affiliate program, how it works, and what to expect.

You will learn how to create a website that is socially friendly with Google, how to write engaging content and how you can earn money by contributing to Wealthy Affiliate.
Yes, you can earn money on Wealthy Affiliate by simply adding value or helping others. We will come to this part later.
4. Get Visual. Get Aesthetic. Get a Brand Through Media
Another really important thing is your website design and how your website looks on the first sight. This is where this lesson will come in handy.
You will learn how to design high converting web pages and what is needed for someone to enhance and upgrade customer experience.
You will also learn how to add charts, graphs, and images in order to make your website more natural and attractive. You will get familiar with Pinterest and how to use it to get more visitors.
Becoming an online brand means having a clear purpose and catchy visuals as well as a domain name. Each one of your posts should be clean, easy to read, and visually appealing.
This way you will get more people to stay on your website and take action. This lesson is also covering Pinterest, how to master it, and how to pin your posts.
Which brings us to our next lesson.
5. Knowing Your Audiences & Catapulting Your Referrals
This lesson is here to get you closer to your audience. After finishing with it, you will know how to write content with clear INTENT. This kind of content creates the best results because readers know what to expect from the first paragraph to the last word.
You will find a way to get your readers to stay engaged and act after finishing with your content.
Next, you will be introduced to the concepts of attracting traffic via Youtube. This traffic source is underrated but can make wonders for your website.
Another really important thing you will learn in this lesson is getting more people to engage by offering add-ons and bonuses. This marketing technique is used by the best in the field.
You will also learn how to prepare your Wealthy Affiliate program campaigns, banners and similar in order to get more out of every engagement with your content.
6. Bing, Yahoo & The Power of PPC
Most other programs do not teach you how to create or carry PPC campaigns. This is where the Wealthy Affiliate program stands out.
In this lesson, you are going to learn about PPC on Bing Ads. You will also get to know how to showcase your website on Yahoo and Bing. This is really important because around 10% of Internet users still use Bing and Yahoo as a search engine.
There is also going to be a word about competition and “spying” on your competitors in order to benefit more. You will get to know the techniques of tracking your referrals and their performance.
I would say that this is really essential for any kind of future ad campaigns, PPC campaigns, and similar marketing strategies. Running a good and well-targeted campaign can make good money, even if you do not have a website.
This is why this lesson is really valuable and I think comes only with Wealthy Affiliate.
7. How to Scale Successful PPC Campaigns
Final lesson of this course is about PPC campaigns. You will learn how to create high CTR ads, how to maximize review pages with PPC.
You are also going to learn how to create pages that are fit for PPC campaigns, how to use comparison tables to improve your conversions, and how to maximize your profits by understanding the math behind PPC.
Another great thing you will learn here is how to sign up for a Google AdWords account and run your first Google Ad campaign.
Also, the thing about the material in this lesson, is that no other similar program or website offers this kind of information and guidance. As I already mentioned, good campaigns can potentially bring you a lot of money.
Take most out of this lesson and this amazing Affiliate Course.
Apart from these two main courses as a premium member, you will also have unlimited access to all parts of the website including Training HQ.

This will make your navigation much easier and you will be able to find a tutorial or a guide you need in no time.
Website Hosting and Website Builder Platform
Having a good and reliable website hosting is another important aspect of your online business. Wealthy Affiliate also covered this for its members.
Here at Wealthy Affiliate, you will be able to purchase 25 domains and host 25 websites for free. WA hosting proved to me as a secure, fast, and great choice when it comes to hosting my websites there.
Every website is offered with a free SSL certificate which can be switched on/off in one second. Most other web hosting companies charge extra for this kind of service.
Wealthy Affiliate Hosting can also offer very fast page loading times. This is another important thing that will influence on your website rankings. An average of 1.3 for site speed ranking is very good result and will ensure a great web experience for your users.
Their websites are hosted on the latest and most powerful servers in the world through Amazon hosting.
What makes Wealthy Affiliate Hosting so unique is the “double hosting” feature. No other company offers this kind of service. With double hosting, a mirror of your website is also hosted in real-time. If for some reason your website goes down, the mirror website will jump in and your website will be up and running.
This is why website uptimes hosted on Wealthy Affiliate are 99.99%.
Another great thing about their hosting is the attention to potential threats to your website.
They have developed a sophisticated system that deals with potential threats by having multiple layers of security. This way you are safe and secure from any potential harm to your website and data.
Just last year there were over 27 million hacking attacks on servers and websites that were prevented. I really rely on their outstanding security and I never had any security issues whatsoever.
If you are worried about website backups, be at ease. Their backups are performed daily. This means that even if you make a mistake with your website, your data can be restored and you can get back to where you were before messing up.
Please check the comparison chart yourself.
Wealthy Affiliate hosting does offer more than the competition. You can see that you will have unlimited emails for your business, site health, premium security, website feedback, site comments feature and many more advanced stuff.
And all of that is included in your monthly membership fee. This is what made me become a part of this wonderful community. I never once felt someone is trying to take my money away. It is the other way around.
I personally believe that Wealthy Affiliate offers more than any other hosting company. That is if you include all the extra features and the possibility to earn money on the Wealthy Affiliate website.
Wealthy Affiliate Domains
With the Site Domain feature, you are just one step away from your new domain. This amazing tool gives you access to all the most used domains (including .com, .net, or .org ). You can purchase your premium domain in a few seconds and it is going to be active in a matter of minutes.
Each premium domain is priced $13.99 a year and there is NO UPSELLS. Every domain includes:
- full access to emails
- full privacy and domain support
- full email accounts included with every domain purchase
- ready to use after few minutes
- WHOIS protection/privacy
- Advanced DNS automation and management included
Website Builder Platform
The website builder platform is another big thing offered on Wealthy Affiliate. SiteRubix website builder allows you to create a website in less than a minute. Try it for yourself below. Just the type your website name, pick a theme and you are ready to go.
With a FREE account, you can host up to two websites on the .siterubix.com domain completely for free. The website builder does all the advanced stuff for you. You just need to activate your website and start working on it. Everything else is covered by the host.
Site Health & Site Manager
A feature that helps with knowing where your website is at the moment. As you can see the things that influence the most are publishing frequency, visitor & your engagement, content quality, number of plugins, and other factors shown below.
Site Manager shows all the websites you own and allows easier access to these websites.
Another very useful thing you are going to use on Wealthy Affiliate. This feature allows others to check your website and give their opinion about it.
When requesting website feedback you are free to choose what kind of feedback you want. You can ask for overall impression, website design, your posts, website architecture, etc.
Usually, you will not need support. But in case you do, your problems will be solved in a matter of minutes. At least I had that experience.
I once had trouble with page loading speed. After contacting the support the problem was resolved in a few minutes. What is really great is that other members also stated that their issues were resolved quickly.
Their support is always available and even in case something goes really wrong, they will manage to fix the problem really fast.
We already mentioned this feature of Wealthy Affiliate. It allows you to earn money by commenting on other peoples websites. This feature also allows you to ask for comments on your website.
Visitor engagement is really important for SEO and the more you comment the more comments you can ask for later. You can set your interests in the menu and then only websites who match your interest will be available for you to comment.
The best part about this is that you can earn money and community credits. Community credits are used to get comments and website feedback. The monthly earning cap for commenting is $100. For this, maximum, amount you will have to leave 400 comments.
This is another part of the website that is exclusive to this platform. It offers the possibility to create content on the website and publish it on your website, without the need to go on WordPress.
Site Content also has a huge FREE image gallery. This is really useful when you edit your posts to make them more visually appealing.
Another great thing is the grammar check. When you finish your post, you just hit the check grammar button and all of your mistakes will be shown. You can’t do that with WordPress and it is really good if you are not a native English speaker.
To make sure your posts rank better on Google you will need to pick good keywords. Although keywords are not important as they were back in 2010, they are still important for SEO and page ranking.
Jaaxy Keyword Tool is here to help you with finding those great keywords. What I recommend everyone is going for the low hanging fruit. This means that you should not go for overly competitive keywords, but for those with some interest/monthly searches and very low competition.
So in other words, your keyword should ideally have at least 30+ average monthly searches, more than 10 traffic/expected visitors, and no more than 30 websites that compete for that same keyword. This will ensure ranking your keyword much better and potentially, hitting rank 1 on Google.
As you can see, “free keyword research tool” keyword is great when it comes to monthly searches and expected traffic. But 171 websites that compete for the same keyword are too much, especially if you just started with your website. So you should skip this keyword.
Keywords and their proper use are thoroughly explained in Wealthy Affiliate training. Jaaxy keyword research tool is really easy to use, has a friendly interface, and is the only thing you need to start exploring and finding great keywords for your posts.
Jaaxy Lite account is included with your premium membership and has pretty much everything you need. You will have unlimited searches and all the results will be shown to you.
There is no need to upgrade your Jaaxy plan, at least before you become a full-time blogger and entrepreneur.
Give Jaaxy a free try below and tell me how do you like it.
Although WA is not social a network, a community of 1.3 million people made it become one. It mostly reminds me of Facebook for online entrepreneurs and affiliate marketers.
Spending time on Wealthy Affiliate can be really fun. From chatting with other members, watching and creating guides and tutorials, to commenting on people’s blogs and training.
You can blog every day about anything and at any time. This is what makes Wealthy Affiliate so great.
By helping others and being active on the website, your rank will grow and you will become an Ambassador of the website. This is also rewarding because there is a special fund for Ambassadors of the website.
1. Is joining Wealthy Affiliate free?
Yes, you can join Wealthy Affiliate for FREE without any kind of obligation or credit card required. You are free to test out the features, training, and people. If it is something you find interesting you can become a premium member at any time. If not, you can simply stay a free member forever.
2. When will I earn my first money?
From the experience of other members, you will need at least 3 months. But 3 months of work and effort on your website. After being for 3 months on Wealthy Affiliate your website will have between 30-50 posts and you will start generating traffic. This will lead to sales and profit.
3. I do not have any experience, can I still benefit from Wealthy Affiliate?
Absolutely. Two main courses are made to fit anyone from experienced marketers to total beginners. The lessons are easy to understand and anyone can follow the material there. You do not need any programming, coding, or any other similar type of skills. You just need to follow easy step-by-step lessons and guides that will lead your website into generating traffic, leads, and sales.
4. Is there any catch or upsells?
NO. After you become a premium member you will have unlimited access, a possibility to host up to 25 websites for free, and amazing affiliate commission rates. You do not need anything else. What is great about Wealthy Affiliate is the possibility to go for Yearly membership or 6-month membership and save more money.
With Yearly membership, you will save $229 in total or you can count your monthly fee like $29.92 per month. With a half-year membership, you will save 20% of the total amount.
5. Are there any negatives?
To be honest with you, there are no real downsides to Wealthy Affiliate. However, although it has nothing to do with the Wealthy Affiliate program itself, people still tend to think that money will come overnight. They usually see amazing results and testimonials from other members but they overlook the work and effort that was put into that success.
This sometimes may lead to frustration, procrastination, and very rarely quitting the whole project.
So, in order to avoid getting caught in that kind of mindset remember that with your every action you are one step closer to your success and your main goal. Every action is good, even the smallest one.
Success is a result of cumulative actions. So, let us say you are only able to write 300 words per day. This is 2100 words per week. Or 9000 words per month.
