Operation: Pass the Test

The last 48 hours have been rough on me.

  • Not because Christmas is approaching.
  • Not because I am overwhelmed.

Instead, it’s due to the fact that..

I failed.


In 48 hours I failed twice on one of the, what I considered, easiest tests.

That’s right..

I failed my drivers license test, TWICE.

But.. I’m not giving up.

Operation: Pass the TestAt first I was ashamed of myself, then I was just purely disappointed, then I went into thoughts of just not taking it again.. and then..

I said screw it.

I’m not going to give up.

And you shouldn’t either.

Wait.. why am I bringing you up?

Because you might be to the point, where you want to give up.

Maybe even before you’ve started.

You may have not even failed yet, but nevertheless, you might have second thoughts about making an income online.

Well guess what, you’ll never make money if you give up.

And the same goes for me, I’ll never get a North Carolina drivers license if I give up.

So, let’s pass this test together!

Tomorrow, I’m going to the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles), which is a 1 hour drive for me each time I go, and I’m going to pass.

And sometime soon, you are going to try to make some money, and you are going to pass your own expectations.

If we work together towards this goal, we will achieve it much faster.

Oh and.. if I fail, I’m going back again the next day, until they kick me out (or of course I pass).

And you’re going to do the same thing, RIGHT?!

Are you with me??

Let’s do this!

    Oh and a note. I failed because of the dumbest answers, the most obvious that were right in front of my eyes. Instead of reading the questions thoroughly, I skimmed them and just answered them quickly.

    The same problem can be found in building a business, if you skip over the important parts, you’ll fail.

    Of course, I feel a bit dumb, but now I’m reading over the book thoroughly and will be ready next time.

      Trate the test as if you was not from the area and you are been shown where to drive to. So if you are told to take the next turn on the left first and formost look and make sure that you can take that left as it maybe a NO ENTERY or exit only road so it would not be much fun if you drive up that type of road. Let’s hope you pass today all the best.

        Ah yes, I definitely get where you’re coming from, but this was the written test. An actual driving test would have been easy for me since I used to be a delivery boy, worked at UPS, and organize a motorcycle community.

        The problem I was having, was being nervous and reading the questions and answers the wrong way.

        If I had just taken my time, I would have passed it on day 1. Thanks for the support (I passed!)

      Justin, hope you passed the test. I know what you mean about the written test. I studied my head off in California and I was so nervous when I took the test(fear came over me) that I thought I wouldn’t pass. But much to my surprise, I DID. This does apply to everything in life. It’s the ‘Fear’ of the unknown. If we don’t try, we’ll never know. Hope you got my email yesterday. Here’s to a good, 2013. Katie ;)

    You will get it Justin, just take your time! And you are right, we can’t skim through life in anything! That is why I tell all my family and friends that this online business is not a scam, but if you think you will just put up a quick website and not work at it, you won’t make money! We live in such an instant society. I call it the drive through society! People want things as fast as a drive through! This takes time! You can’t spend 2 or 3 hours building a site, and not go back to it and keep working on it! You have to stay diligent! That is with anything in life. Imagine what life would be like without diligence! In a marriage, if you are not invested in your partner, how long would you stay married? In a job, if you don’t do what is expected, or do it half, how long will it be before your employer fires you. In cooking, if you don’t follow all the recipe would the food taste good? Come on people WORK for what you want! Just my 2 cents on that! I know you work Justin, just my two cents on people in general!

    Justin, you’ll pass, I have no doubts about that! Don’t get too psyched out about it because, if you’re like me, the more nervous I get, the “stupider” I get! It’s no because we’re stupid, we are just overly anxious! There are times when I get so nervous about something I can hardly remember the simplest things embarassed In fact, I think you’ve experienced that with me…haha! Anyway, good luck!

    They have example tests online. take them until you get 100′s on them…they have a round of 6 tests in PA. I bet they have something similar where you are. My son did the same thing 2x., it happens.

    How did you get on with your test today?

    I went back to take the test today and…

    I got 100%! Oh yea!

    Not only that, the officer who I was talking with said I was the nicest person who has come through there in a long time and I was one of the only people who didn’t blame her for my first 2 failures. That really brightened my day.

    To pass, I simply studied and recorded my voice speaking the questions and answers, which I listened to on my way to the DMV.

    Moral: Take action, but take action smarter. And be nice to people.. it goes a long way.

    I have always said this if you are nice to people nice things will happen to you. So you ACE it then :-) great news so next on the list is the big rig license you are after for the camper van you have your eye on.

      HA! Exactly :) We definitely would love to get an RV sometime in the next 2 years. Once thing that’s great about NC, is insurance.. wow. I’m paying 1/3 the price I was in VA. Hoping it’s the same for the RV.
