We All Start From Zero – You Just Have To Do It!
(Ps. I am not sponsored by Nike, I wish I was.)
Today, I want to talk about a readers email that was submitted to me a couple days ago. In the email, the reader says, “You have a beautiful website/blog! I wish to have a website/blog like yours one day.” First of all, I would like to say thank you to that reader!
Also, I want to use this as an opportunity to motivate all of my readers. You see, my blog wasn’t always like this. It started with a regular freemium WordPress theme with the notorious “Just another WordPress Site.” Now that I think about it, I was in that reader’s shoe not too long ago!
I’m sure we’ve all felt that way in our life when we see someone successful and wish to be just like that person one day. Well, it can be done if you’re willing to put in the work.
You Have The Tools And Resources At Your Disposal
I wanted to start a blog and learn the art of making money online back in 2009 when I was fresh out of high school. Unfortunately, during that time, I was intimidated by other peoples website/blog. I didn’t think I would ever be able to achieve the same level of success as they have.
Fast forward, 2018 is the perfect time to get started because you have all the tools and resources at your disposal. My blog is created on the WordPress platform which you can get started for free. The only cost from the get-go is a domain name and website hosting services.
Even at this very moment, I have zero coding knowledge. WordPress has allowed an ordinary person like myself to create a fully operational blog with ease.
No longer do you have to learn how to code to integrate important functions to your website/blog. With WordPress, you are just a few clicks away from creating a professional website/blog.

Success Is A Progress From Failure
When I first started my blog, I made a lot of mistakes. My mentality was different from when I first started. I thought I was perfect from the moment I launched my blog. The point is, I wanted to be successful right away!
A few weeks later, I learned an important lesson and that is, you have to fail in order to succeed. If you’re not open to failure, you will never see progress. Fortunately for me, I joined a very helpful community which also happens to be the platform that I run my blog on. There, I received constructive criticism on my theme as well as content.

Believe it or not, Smart Affiliate Hub started with a theme that I used for a website/blog to help people quit smoking (no longer around, so I can focus 100% on Smart Affiliate Hub). The theme I used didn’t fit the theme of working from home, but it gave me the experience of personalizing a website/blog.—It was a failure, but it led to success because even though the theme didn’t work out. At the very least, I’ve learned a new skill.
It was through countless trial and error that led me to where I am today. Even as I’m typing this article, I’m still looking at my blog as a work in progress.
If You Want To Be Successful, You Just Have To Do It!
The truth is, we all start from zero and in my case, I was fortunate enough to start with a community of people who are also looking to succeed and blogging and making money online.
Looking back, my blog looked like absolute garbage and my content was mediocre at best. However, if I never started, I wouldn’t have improved and made it better.
The point is, you just have to do it! Sure, your blog will not look anything like mine from the start, but you wouldn’t have a blog at all if you don’t do it.
Sure your content will not win any awards, but here’s an example: Gold medal winners from the Olympics didn’t win their gold medal from the beginning. They went through intense training and view failure as a way to improve themselves. It might’ve taken them years to accomplish the achievement of winning an Olympic gold medal, but if they didn’t do it, they would’ve never won that gold medal.
You Will Improve Through Failure
Similar to anything in life. The more you do it, the better you become. I learned this lesson during the time when I was learning how to ride a bicycle. Today, I am able to ride a bicycle from where I live to the Downtown of San Francisco. At first, I could barely get past the first block of my neighborhood without falling.
Failure is not fun at all, but if I gave up, today I wouldn’t be able to ride a bicycle from where I live to Downtown of San Francisco right? Because I didn’t give up and learn from the failures, I am now a decent bicyclist.
The same applies to my blog. My blog is not the most attractive or organized blog in the world, but if I gave up, I wouldn’t have the improved version of my blog today.
