return screenshots

After which the return screenshots from the Digital team were absolutely a bliss to follow. Things got corrected and away the website creation would proceed. Having to learn to utilize the screenshot method to report bloopers came in really handy when I accidently changed my site URL. And, near had pink kittens trying to figure out, by myself, what I had done in the first place.

After a few days, I gave up in despair and asked for assistance. Thankfully they knew what had happened. And within half an hour I found the email informing me that everything was now Okay. In truth the explanation was: I had hit the wrong button [ which I knew] and had swapped the way the address arrow was pointing.

They say everything happens for a reason. Well, that reason reared it head a few weeks later when an online friend was screen sharing and giving me instruction. Everything made sense and was going according to plan when the instruction came hit this button. And my finger froze. No way was I going through that again. So sending an email with a screen shot of the process back to the back office was their relief when I realised that the lesson from before had actually stuck in my head. An innocent mistake was averted.

learning by mistakes

So the focus needed to get through the tough times. The constant ‘learning by mistakes’ frustrations. Simply driving people crazy and just not knowing the difference is something that people around, who have been slowly getting to know the limitations of what and where things are happening within my cognitive thought patterns. Well, let’s say sometimes what may seem simply logical to this female, is way out of the ballpark to someone else. And yet other times I stand there is total bamboozlement and wonder just what the heck happened.

 

So too is the sheer determination that at 55 years learning something like affiliate marketing is just not going to beat me.

Amy’s statement, by the way, is that ‘Once you ‘live the life’ you pick up on things. Amy is in part a participatory onlooker. Yet often it takes one to know one. That deep inner connection is there somewhere. For why else would someone connect within something like this. The simple logic is that diabetics understand some of the issues of diabetics. Alcoholics with alcoholics. E-commerce entrepreneurs know what it takes and who’s got what it takes to engage and activate an e-commerce platform.

The same goes for people who run micro-business. Who are looking to build that alternative digital lifestyle? Once that move is made, and the digital training platform is found you are comfortable with what is stopping you moving forward one module at a time. Your own pace. Your own speed.

Now things about a person who is in the same predicament as myself. Add to this an entire relearning situation that was needed to be overcome. Yes after gravel truck imploded into the van I was driving what happened but a full clock out and lock down of thirty-one years of memories. Officially this is Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. All I know is that while that was in charge of my brain there was no need to place myself in the path of official relearning through educational institutions.

 

And yet I did. I redid, and re-sat, my University entrance Twenty-five years after completing and passing the other one in New Zealand.  Then went through into a ‘technical’ school setting. Where I had fun with a computer course. After that the University with a post graduate course. Actually this was funny when I look back on it as I had not any university education at all. And yet to my amazement, and to the others, what were my life experiences in the past, and well as the current time, came through. The final public presentation went smoothly. Okay, not a lot of technical things were in there. But looking back the lifeskills of having practice in drawing the crowds into the spoken topic came from selling the balloons on markets. The finding out and gentle probing was from the nursing background. And the sheer cheek and ‘whatever’ came from the taxis I had been driving. The commanding of the attention was from the years of Girl Guide leadership.

how far along that

 

What surprises me every so often is how far along that learning and action curve I am. Little things like joining the 90 day Down Under challenge. With the 90 day video challenge I completed finding out that I could step back, the pressures were self-placed upon me.,  What has been found was to look for ways to automate.  Again here is proof that it takes one to know one! being successful at one while pulling out of a few other challenges has taught me that  these challenges help make the possible a reality. What sis I find out… I am a winner. I make things happen when I apply myself.  Applying myself within a well set thought out, ‘adaptabley’ flexible, plan is far better than wondering if I should open my eyes today!

Knowing that there will be stress times. Automating one thing at a time just to take the pressure off. Better yet, sorting out a couple of Google spread-sheets. And quietly working through one days ticks at a time. Mind you in three days there is a more detailed check sheet. This, though, is a familiar set up that keeps the aversion to change in test. Either the narcissism or the OCD raising to the occasion.

having lived the life

” Having lived the life “, if not of here own autistic then definitely through the eyes of a mother who has seen the struggles of her own Autistic child. Hope sprang seeing a young comedian struggles. Reading a post by AmyMahoney where she shared the story of a young comedian Amy and her husband could just tell there was a strong autistic tendencies there.

My own sentiments are similar to Amy Mahoneys . Amys son is a non-verbal autistic person. Me, I am in the High Functioning end. Somewhere. Yet where ever this spot is in the quicksand of thought is familiar to me. About as familiar as pink elastic in a frying pan at times!

Although sometimes as I struggle with things others simply pick up on, and away they go… Well the mental mind-blockages are daunting. So too is the sheer determination that at 55 years learning something like affiliate marketing is just not going to beat me. Where is that focus needed to get through the tough times. That focus is what employers are looking for. Suddenly what was a disease through societies eyes is now a money making venture. And when the autistics are employed the employers will make money.

Frustrations are part of having lived the life.

Accept it – there are the frequent learning by mistakes frustrations. Simply driving people crazy and just not knowing the difference is something that people around, who have been slowly getting to know the limitations of what and where things are happening within my cognitive thought patterns. Well let’s say sometimes what may seem simply logical to this female, is way out of the ballpark to someone else. And yet other times I stand there is total bamboozlement and wonder just what the heck happened.

Amy’s statement refers to ‘Once having ‘lived the life‘ you pick up on things. Like stated Amy is a participatory onlooker. Yet often it takes one to know one. That deep inner connection is there somewhere. For why else would someone connect within something like this. The simple logic is that diabetics understand some of the issues of diabetics. Alcoholics with alcoholics. E-commerce entrepreneurs know what it takes and who’s got what it takes to engage and activate an e-commerce platform.

The same goes for people who run micro-business.

People who are looking to build that alternative digital lifestyle. Once that move is made and the digital training platform is found you are comfortable with what is there stopping you moving forward one module at a time. Your own pace. Your own speed.

 

My own sentiments to whatever excuse you have today for not coming and checking out the digital training many people [ myself included] are using to gain traction within their alternative digital lifestyle e-commerce situation would be “B/shit”.

the aversion to change

Over the weekend just past I was at a s

The Six Figure Mentors run this once a year and those within the DownUnder group turning up. Each one of us put ourselves forward in some significant way.  To quote a friend…”Have a blast and just kick Arse!” Anyway Stuart, one of the co-founders came out with a ‘new’ term. “B/shit” Whatever holds you back is now termed “B/Shit”.

For myself it’s taken a while to get to where I am now. Cognitively joining the dots. Keeping focus on one step at a time. What surprises me every so often is how far along that learning and action curve I am. Little things like joining the 90 day Down Under challenge. Knowing that there will be stress times. Automating one thing at a time just to take the pressure off. Better yet sorting out a couple of google spreadsheets. and quietly working through one days ticks at a time. Mind you in three days there is a more detailed check sheet. This though is a familiar set up that keeps the aversion to change in check. Either the narsicussium is the OCCD rasing to the occasion. That my friends is where when Autism is seen as a gift, things go forward. These steps may to many seem insignificant. However the initial meltdowns and overwhelms of learning a totally new field were helped as others within the community threw lifelines. While others literally put themselves in the water and swam life a life-guard does. Right near you but not smothering you. The strange thing is that with these people they have past your safety blockades. They are within your inner circle and often they do not even know it.

look into our own selves

look into our own selves

There were unexpected sink holes all over the place.

Coming into the support business behind the community there were level options. I chose the one that allowed me to find my ME. Thankfully through this training level chosen a group of us went through.
Taking the necessary time. Looking deep into our ownselves. That hurt. Really hurt. To annayse myself had been easy previously. My me simply was falling through the sink holes in time. There were thin layers covering layers. To go deep and then deal with what was realsed was fearful. Suring???????????? which the result was like turning around and finding another you within you. A stalking stranger that had been dogging your shadow in the mists of time. One perminently attached sucking up your energy to feed itself.

I spoke about the want that turned in to a need. Creating pictures. Something all people can feel the textures of . Even with the discription with the picture descrin box havingas detailed explaination within as the people viewing the descriotion either are blind and are wanting to experiene the picture through you w=eyes. It some braid bands not loaded the oictyre very well. The peson reading your post may want to reach out and click the descriotion shouldf they be intregued in what lay behind the words.

Actually the need that arose from the need to create different visuals started the reconnection. Simply by taking a photo of myself in a bathroon mirrror I was looking into the eyes of a very lost soul. My reflection. Shortly after that came the realisation that I was 25 years older than I remembered me being. Click the “Welcome home party was now going on in full in full swing!”

Pieces Fallen Together

 

How have the pieces fallen together?

Having a brain injury in 1991 what had not actually been comprehended by myself was there are billions of people in the world. That no two people are alike. Definitely no two people on the Autism Spectrum anyway. Therefore, the concept of different people approaching the same task jsut in a multitude of ways was known, seen and not comprehended nor connected to. Ignoring this was not the issue.
Understanding the concept of individuality and being art peace with who you actually are, was the issue.

When the invitation came to come into the community I literally took everything I read to pieces. Annalysed everything. It’s likely to say that sensible people would know not to do this. Eighteen months, and two momentum days, later what the community have been patiently explaining has finally clicked. Like pieces of an invisible jig saw slotting into place.

Be yourself. Write about your story. Find who you are and write about that persons view of this world. Thing is that the truck impacting into the vehicle I was driving had taken away those memories of the first thirty-one years of ME [My Experiences]. Then there has been the next twenty-five years added to that void. A very unstable void that meant no solid foundation for grown was going to be stable once built upon.

online strategies

Online Strategies reflect your “U”

People have their own sense of style. Even towards communication, your online system, along with your online strategies will vary greatly from anyone else. So many places will state they will teach you this strategy or that one. Stating that only one, maybe at a stretch two, is ” the perfect way to fo this or achieve that”. One question that came to mind was that if everyone was adopting the same process would that not become spam?

For many years there was no answer  to this one little online strategies question. people also avoided other issues as soon as they heard the word “Autism’ or Autistic”. However, there was one company that agreed with me.  In essence stated that if I was one of those then not to bother with progressing out of the BootCamp. I could finish the BootCamp just not go through the modules. To get back to them, should I want more questions answered.

However, there was one company that agreed with me and the spam question.  In essence stated that if I wanted to be a clone of someone else and ignore my own uniqueness then  not to bother with progressing out of the BootCamp. I could finish the BootCamp just not go through the modules. To get back to them, should I want more questions answered.

With learning, there is noise.  Mental brain cogs are slowly rolling into gear. As it’s been a while since new mental tasks were performed, they’re grinding away, out of the latest learning lubricants. The noise of choosing to be a student means communication is necessary.

Why differing results for the same online strategies

Does it matter that when you give two people the same tools, set of instructions and working thinking environment there will be different results?  This end effect starts out with a mindset. It is how the mind responses to the need for change that generates ‘change in the processes that bind the persons ability to move on’. Remembering that where the onlooker may have a need for that person to meet a certain standard the actual person involved may well be dealing with other unseen needs.

For instance, with a beginner affiliate marketer, the need of a mentor may be for someone to ‘make a sale’ where the actual need of the person is to work out how to communicate within their own mind.  Both may be safety issues perceived from different aspects of their own life experiences.

Broadly speaking the age, experience, home responsibilities and even the sex of the two people do to a large degree influence the result. Now add the cultural environment.

Online strategies looking for gold nuggets

For this post, let’s look at how people are shown how to find gold nuggets through their own upskilling, relearning and also the training they are given. For example, take the writing and online strategies involved around the writing as an online communication form.

If the person’s passion for freedom  is such that they want more to life than they already have, and are prepared to do the work involved- would knowing that they already know where to find gold nuggets towards effective communication be so far fetched? Further that it is a particular state of mind that is needed to have the patience and drive to learn online strategies of marketing.

When they have a need, a deep-seated need, to begin to make a change of something  already in their life what happens?  For instance written communication systems. Knowing that when many people begin to step out towards a changed  communication level there are stretching points of their comfort zone should be familiar to them. Habits, directives or just plain misunderstanding of transmitted directives, statements and body language may cause them to take quickly a figurative ‘toe’ out of the water, leap backwards and forever avoid the spot again.

Many autistics are actually like this. To change things that change, and the need for change has got to be accepted. Change though causes a meltdown in many cases. These meltdowns cause information blockages. And there are time delays most everyday trainers do not understand. Particularly with many online strategies. What you are about to be introduced to is not textbook knowledge. It’s on the floor and working proven* system knowledge.
