The Dream I Nearly Gave Up


Hello again to you my loyal readers. My very first article which I published sometime last year dealt with the 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 how the before-mentioned topic relates to me.

In the year 2000, I suddenly had this crazy idea that I was going to learn to build websites. The idea just sprang "out of the blue" and I did not know a single thing about what I was getting into. Somehow I got the money to pay for the web design course that I needed to do, and three months later I finished the 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 ease the tension and to avert the 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 to the top of the 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).

Then it began. Six months after hours of tedious work, I broke into the top ten for the search term "Mandeville, Jamaica". I was elated by that achievement, because of the obstacles that I had faced and because most of my competitors were the "big boys". A few months later I won an award for the work that I did on my website and to top it all - a number 1 (# 1 ) listing in Google, Yahoo and AOL. This was accomplished by overcoming many obstacles along the way most of which I just ran right over.

This experience taught me a lot about life and how I should follow my dreams through to end. So my friends in whatever you are striving for at this very moment and you are not seeing any results, push on. Because once you do so success WILL come, it's just a matter of time. Keep on hanging in there, my brothers and sisters and I will see you at the bank. Remember, life always goes in favor of the brave and action taker. What action are you taking today to achieve your goals?

To your success and mine,
