Sometimes, the things are not so easy as one thinks or he would like, but if I can, you can.
After a course online on how to give him visibility to my blog, I decided to happen of having a blog to a web, where it might offer my services as psychotherapist and coach online.
Since coach, I defined well my aim:
- Specific: To mount a web, with a part of blog
- Measurable: I will see It, since the change is evident
- Attainable: alone I cannot do it, so I have to fix a budget and to look for anybody who helps me.
- Realizable: It is something possible of doing, there are many webs in Internet.
- Limited in the time: I would say that between 1 and 2 months, it will be sufficient.
I contacted an acquaintance and we start working on September 1.
Two months later, in November, I had had to change of topic, so … it was going to need more time.
It had not calculated well.
For January, (4 months later), it happens slightly unforeseen:
I have to change of hosting.
This will delay, again, the launch of the web.
And already it cannot only so much to finish it.
But, what it was not possessing, by no means, it was with an e-mail of the boy who was helping myself, after 2 weeks without doing anything, in the one that he was saying to myself:
” I am very sorry, but I have a lot of work and do not be when I will be able to put with your web “
After reading it, I remain in shock.
For a moment, I cannot speak …
We have not finished the web.
It is necessary to form the topic, the plugins, the links, etc.
And I, I have not even idea of technical things!
But the worse thing of everything is that: already I do not still have him presupposed.
What had for the web, I have spent in these 4 months …
What do I do?
The doubts assault me.
My mind gets hold of me, and starts turning and tying all my thoughts.
My family goes already time saying to me that I have to look for a “normal” work.
That already I take a lot of time investing in my web and do not come proved.
They have reason, I do not see them either.
And now, in addition, I am alone and without budget.
And the worse thing, without having not even idea of how continuing with the technical part of the web.
I am a psychologist … know of psychotherapy, of coaching … but of forming wordpress … nothing…
When this one presents it started working, I asked him if he was going to be able to be still helping myself and he said to me that yes, that should not worry, that ” I was not going away to leaving issue “.
But, it goes two weeks that nothing does.
And now he says to me that it does not know when it will be possible put.
I am rabid.
And angry with him.
My family has reason, I have to look for work.
Do you give up yourself before the difficulties?
I put to update my curriculum and to send it to all the sites that I see that psychologists search.
But in my interior, I listen to this voice that he says to me:
And your project to work online? Are you going to leave it of side? After all the time, money and effort that rides invested? What is what you want?
I sit pricks in the heart.
Hum, my interior voice, also has reason.
But I have not even idea of wordpress.
What can I do?
I decide to buy me a book: WordPress for dummies. Ideal for me.
And I remember that some time ago, a friend was commenting to myself that, when it could not do anything, it was looking for it in YouTube.
With the book I learn on plugins, widgets and a heap of things more.
And in You tube, meeting tutoriales and I start forming plugins in my web
After one week, I have happened of seeing it quite black, to see the light.
Probably, after everything, do not be so “dummie”.
If you do not know anything, you can learn it
I cannot believe it, though very slow, but … I am advancing alone!
The boy reappears, helps me in something for one week and then, returns to disappear.
I need to put the form of subscription to my web, in order that they could unload an ebook that I have written, but I do not achieve that me the link works.
For any more videoes that I see, there is no way.
I return to drive to despair.
” I cannot make it alone “, I say to myself. ” I do not have sufficient technical knowledge “.
I need help.
I search, but I do not find.
Or what I find, overcomes the budget that I have assigned.
I return to frustrate.
I am still angry with this person.
It has left issue me.
The one that follows it, obtains it.
I give myself a few days of rest. Otherwise, the head is going to exploit me, of so many returns.
There has to have someone who could help.
I return to search for Internet.
I put in touch with all the technical supports that I find: of the plugin, of the topic, of the mail …
And, for my surprise, they start giving me solutions.
E-mail arrives, e-mail below … three days later, I have the form of subscription put and work!, so …
I decide to leave the web online.
I have obtained it!
It costs, I have been late 6 months …
But I am mad of release. I call my mother, my friend, to my sister and they I tell my achievement.
On having hung, I stick a dance, to my health!
Alone I have managed to finish!
Well, with help of the technical supports …
But, I obtained my aim: already I have the web online!
Clear, that always are absent things, but … the principal thing, already it is.
The following day, I am exhausted … so many months, so many tension, you doubt so many people …
I have realized that we are more capable than we think, but we do not know it.
That’s why I tell you that, if I can, you can.
Which is your aim? Which is your next goal? What do you want to obtain?
Sometimes, you throw in the towel, to the minim that the things do not go out since you want …
Or you limit yourself thinking that you will not obtain it.
But the way will be full of difficulties.
In fact, you have to possess them.
To know that, in these moments, you are going to need a dose extra from patience with you itself.
And you do not have to allow that the obstacles should paralyze you.
It does not matter if you give two steps for ahead and three for behind.
The important thing is to continue walking, and not to lose of sight your aim.
Probably, need a bit more of time to obtain that one that you had proposed you, but, what does more give? If ultimately you obtain it.
And if already you are in March, I encourage you to continue, to continuing forward and to managing the emotions of the way.
Because they will be.
You will happen for moments of happiness and sadness, euphoria and desperation … but as the difficulties, these form a part of the trip.
Ojalá my example uses you as inspiration to lead to giving you this small step towards your dream.
Towards what you want.
Do you know already which is this following step to give?
I wait tell me how you feel and in what point you are now. You can do it in the comments.
And, if you have liked my history and you think that it can motivate someone, help her spread.
