How Blogging Changed My Life



how blogging changed my life

Blogging changes your life in wonderful ways.

Pull up a chair, relax, grab your favorite beverage, and enjoy me sharing how blogging changed my life.

How Blogging Changed My Life

Over 10 years ago I was gainfully employed as a security officer at Port Newark in New Jersey. I fulfilled a few roles but mainly kept an eye on trucks leaving the outbound section of the shipping terminal.

Life was easy but boring and unfulfilling.

I eventually got the pink slip.

A few months after being downsized, my wife told me you could make money online.

I received advice from a mentor basically saying: start a blog.

I bought my domain and hosting and never looked back.

This was from my 3 month trip to New Zealand.

As I got clearer, told my story, and focused on success, I steadily became more successful. Eventually, I landed features on Virgin, Forbes, Fox News and Entrepreneur. I retired to a life of island hopping through smart blogging. I spoke about blogging at prestigious NYC.

I wrote and self-published over 100 eBooks. After circling the globe for 8 years, I can say blogging changed my life dramatically.

Let me share how it went down so you can gain inspiration from this post.

I Traveled the World for 8 Years

Almost 8 years ago to the day, I flew for the first time. JFK to Bali.

Yep; I flew 23 hours for my first flight. Nobody ever accused me of easing into stuff.

Blogging morphed me from home body to world traveler. I generated passive income so figured circling the globe was a neat way to capitalize on my blogging passive income.

I have spent months in:

  • Fiji
  • Bali
  • Costa Rica
  • Thailand
  • Vietnam
  • Bali
  • Laos
  • Cambodia
  • Myanmar
  • Sri Lanka
  • Nepal
  • New Zealand
  • Cyprus
  • Qatar
  • Turkey
  • India
  • Peru
  • Nicaragua
  • New York City

through my blogging exploits.

Circling the globe became easier the moment I chose to be a full time, pro blogger. Allowing in passive income made turned traveling from dream to brilliant reality.

I Uncovered Long Hidden Talents

A few years ago I was approached by National Geographic for a new TV show. I would do a segment on one show detailing my death-defying giardia episode in India.

Network bigs squashed the show but no doubt my video presentation, charismatic nature and overall entertaining, fun vibe would have been a hit with a national audience. Of course, the same qualities resonate with a large, loyal audience online.

I was a ham as a kid. After leading in school plays and being a public speaker as a little kid, I became shy. Why? I went back into my comfort zone.

Pro blogging goaded me to leave my comfort zone. I broadcast live videos. My writing game expanded. I wrote and self-published over 100 eBooks. Plus I created a series of blogging courses.

Blogging unearthed long hidden talents for me and you to enjoy.

Blogging will do the same for you.

I Strengthened My Mental Muscle

Blogging inspired me to strengthen my mental muscle.

This was from my 2 month trip to Oman.

Formerly, I had been a bit weak minded. But choosing to blog influenced me to:

  • practice focusing on success
  • see blogging wins all day long
  • visualize my dreams
  • meditate
  • do deep yin yoga

My mindset moved from negative to positive. Life became cheery. Depression? I released that mental state.

I vibed so high that I landed a contributor gig on the 2.6 million member Positively Positive community blog.

Other contributors include Mark Cuban and Seth Godin.

Blogging influenced me to power up my mental muscle.

I Befriended Folks from All Over the Globe

Blogging helped me make friends from all over the globe.

Some friends blog. Other friends just enjoy following my travels.

Some of my dearest friends:

This list can go on forever guys.

If you see me engaging folks on Facebook and Twitter, know the folks are dear friends of mine.

This was from my 1 month trip to Myanmar.

I want to give a special shout out to Alonzo and David. Even with my worldly success prior to meeting both friends, both guys really, really, really believed in me and helped me in incredible ways. In rare moments when I doubted myself, the support Alonzo and David showed me inspired me to keep moving towards greater dreams. Both pros played a big role in my success.

You Are Succeeding Now

I could write 10,000 words about my movie life.

If you want my life to be made into a Netflix show, Tweet Netflix.

Tweet Netflix this blog post:

27 of My Most Netflix Worthy Colorful Travel Experiences

I made my life a movie.

You are making your life a movie, now, by listening to a guy who made his life a movie.

I know you are succeeding now. Count all of your blogging wins. Be positive. See your success.

Success will continue to flow your way in increasing amounts.

I believe in you.

Blogging will change your life.

Take a deep breath. Be in the moment. Leave the concept of time for just a bit, as in the moment, time does not exist.

Focus on your dream life. See the vision. Keep things positive. Learn blogging from top pros.

Create and connect.

Enjoy the ride.

Success is yours.

Blogging is changing your life now and will continue to do so as you move in the direction of your dreams.

What Does Your Blog Need?



I wrote an eBook explaining what your blog needs:

6 Things Your Blog Needs Today

Success finds bloggers who cover all bases.

If you need nothing and feel your blog needs nothing, you succeed and live your wildest dreams.

Successful bloggers know adding the right elements to blogs and beginning blogs the right way accelerates your success. Plus it feels good to begin blogging intelligently.

What does your blog need?

1: Domain and Hosting

Invest in a domain and hosting.

Accelerate your blogging success.

Domain names make you stand out.

Observe how Pat Flynn invested in Smart Passive Income.

Of course you know immediately; the blogger covers smart passive income. Passive income seekers know the resource because Pat bought a domain name.

He also invested in hosting to ensure he owned his blog.

Take this step to control:

  • branding
  • income potential
  • blog voice

Own your site. You need to own your blog to be in control of your blogging campaign.

2: Premium Theme

Invest money in a premium theme.

Stand out from the crowd.

Circulating money on a premium, eye-catching, clear theme emits a professional, impressive, powerful message.

This was from one of my many trips to Thailand.

Readers see you are a serious, successful or success-seeking, blogger. Of course you gain trust and grow your readership quickly by investing money in a premium theme.

Why do you need a premium theme? Would you trust a blogger who uses a cheap-looking, heavy, non-professional theme? If someone cannot afford to invest $60 in a premium theme you better not trust their advice, their insight and their sharing. Why? Serious, skilled bloggers never allow $60 to dictate their life’s direction and failing, struggling, unskilled bloggers make the foolish decision to not chase their dreams over $60.

3: Content

Content drives blogs.

Your blog needs content to:

  • prove you know your stuff
  • spread your presence online
  • inspire readers to follow you
  • inspire readers to trust you

Visit Blogging From Paradise.

Look around for a few minutes. Read 3 of my recent posts. Do you see why content drives the blogging engine?

Imagine if you saw only 1 blog post. Every blogger begins somewhere but publishing helpful content from a generous, success-focused energy distances you from most bloggers in your niche.

Imagine seeing 1 to 5 blog posts on a blog. Good introduction no doubt.

Imagine seeing 50 to 100 blog posts on a blog. Massive impact.

Focus less on post numbers and more on being generous with time and talents. Content just shows off what you know.

As folks see you know your stuff thru your volume of helpful posts you begin to:

  • increase traffic
  • boost your blogging profits
  • expand your presence
  • increase brand awareness
  • help more folks
  • make a big impact in your niche

Content makes everything grow.

Publish content on the regular to become a successful blogger.

Focus on Your Dreams

Concentrate on your dreams from a relaxed, chill energy.

You need dreams to feel the calm, detached confidence of bloggers who invest in:

See your blogging wins now. You succeed now. Own it.

Feel good about your blogging career. You are rocking it out.

Succeed, being the blogger who covers all blogging needs.

Bonus Need

Invest in a blogging course.

Your blog – and you – need a blogging blueprint to follow in order to succeed from a calm, confident, orderly, relaxed energy.

Blog like a success.

Learn from the best to become a successful blogger.

Courses just give you a structure for learning in the proper format.

Imagine sitting down in a classroom to learn disciplines from a professor.

You do the same thing through a blogging course.

How Can You Turn Criticism into Blogging Profits?



I wrote an entire eBook on lessons I learned from critics:

6 Life Lessons I Learned from Nasty Critics

As you see greater blogging success, you get criticized.

No blogger avoids criticism.

Learning how to convert nasty criticism into blogging profits helps you be a highly successful blogger.

Picture This

Imagine someone tossing big rocks at you.

Fools step in front of the rocks, injuring themselves.

Idiots catch the rocks and throw said rocks back at folks, wasting precious time and energy on rock tossing morons.

Wise humans avoid the rocks, allowing the stones to reach terra firma, and build a castle from all the granite-type rocks tossed their way.

Highly successful, happy bloggers are like wise humans; building something meaningful and profitable from inevitable criticism, versus taking criticism personally (stepping in front of rocks) or fighting critics (throwing rocks back at rock throwers).

I wrote 2 eBooks on the topic.

In addition to the prior eBook I also wrote:

How to Turn Harsh Blogging Criticism into Sweet Blogging Profits: 11 Tips

Observe the product page.

I profit through an:

  • eBook version
  • audio book version
  • paperback version
  • mass market paperback version

of the topic.

I make money through 4 income streams based on teaching folks how to profit through blogging criticism.

How can you convert criticism into coin?

Follow these tips.

Breathe Deeply and Relax

Most humans:

  • fight criticism
  • feel the sting of criticism
  • feel embarrassed about being criticized
  • fight critics
  • go into a shell after being criticized

Breathe deep. Relax.

Feel energies and emotions in reaction to being criticized.

Release said energies.

Be calm, confident and poised.

Establish the proper energy for profiting through criticism.

Gain Clarity

Criticism is a projection of individual; we see ourselves in others.

100% of the time, critics speak 100% of themselves, not you, through their criticism.

Knowing this, you do not take criticism personally. Ditto for gaining clarity in all you do, blogging-wise.

I reacted with anger, annoyance, embarrassment and shame on reading my first few 1 star audio book reviews. Turns out, those fear-based feelings needed to be addressed and released for me to generate more income through audio books.

Increased profits flow to bloggers who feel clear on income channels.

Being criticized forces you to face, embrace and release fears concerning income channels, said clearing resulting in clarity and greater sales.

If you react negatively to criticism, the reaction suggests you have fears to feel and clear regarding the criticism. Clearing these negative energies allows more profits to flow through the income streams because fear strangles income while clarity increases income.

Convert Criticism into Tangible Products

Turn hate into create.

Convert criticism into tangible profits.

Note my 2 eBooks, my audio book and paperback.

Create an online course to help your readers process criticism.

Strike while the iron feels hot; create immediately after receiving criticism to allow your prolific ideas to flow.

Add a price tag.


See Problems and Profit in Projection

I create:

  • blog posts
  • guest posts
  • videos
  • podcasts

based on critical projections bandied about by critics.

Critics may or may not see errors in their ways.

This was from my 2 month trip to Oman.

I just stress how criticizing promotes their failure, strangles success and prolongs misery and suffering, based on my content.

If critics wake up and read, these folks become likely readers, fans, customers and clients, because if I solved their problems for free I can solve their problems for pay.

Profit through the Discipline of Detached Observation

Observing feelings from a detached, calm, confident energy versus reacting to feelings is a skill most millionaires cultivate.

What better way can you develop this skill than by reading and processing criticism without reacting to your emotions?

Wealthy bloggers observe knee jerk reactions in their being, feel energies, release, and proceed to profit. You see immense patience, persistence, poise and profiting. But the blogger just watches, feels and releases, versus reacting.

Move Up the Energetic Ladder into More Prospering, Higher Circles by Ignoring Critics

Critics vibe from a fear-based, lower, poverty conscious energy.

Ignore these folks to rocket higher in blogging circles, toward a loving, prosperity conscious, profitable energy.

I made blogging friends in high places by completely ignoring lower energy folks, some of whom criticized me and my blog.

Starve lower energies.

Make room for higher energies.

Profit, free yourself and see increasing blogging success.

What Do You Sell and How Do You Sell It?



One easy way to make money blogging is to get clear on calling folks to buy your stuff and hire you.

Invest in my blogging course.

Visit my blog for blogging ebooks and blogging audiobooks.

Advertise on my blog.

Paypal me.

See how easy?

I clearly call you to invest.

You invest.

Simply put, knowing what you sell and how you sell it increases your blogging profits because people respond to your energy.

Prior lines? Each feels clear and comfortable to me. I know what I offer. Of course I know how I offer it. How, meaning, how I feel offering.

Imagine feeling light, airy, calm, confident and detached as you call readers to buy or hire. Money feelings. Good.

But imagine feeling heavy, resistant, uncomfortable, awkward or embarrassed calling readers to buy or hire.

Your greatest pro blogging success occurs by shifting from heavy to light during money calls.

Or feeling light, airy, detached and clear on calls because you freely share what you sell and sell with clarity results in big blogging profits.

Audio Books

I note a spike in audio book sales and reviews. Of course I barely touched my audio books over 3 years. I generate almost completely passive income; the audio books sell themselves.

After seeing royalty payments recently I pondered the passive blogging income; I barely actively sell ‘em so the what and how seems non-existent. But detaching just lets what and how unfold gracefully and beautifully, resulting in virtually complete passive income.

This was from my trip to Bali.

Getting almost 100% clear on what and how results in ever increasing, passive profits.


Blogging is energy.

Blogging Energy

Imagine feeling clear on receiving money from someone. You just accept it.

A friend buys lunch. You cheerily accept.


Your energy dictates you clearly accept and enjoy the money or purchase.

Ditto for blogging income streams. Emit the same clear, relaxed, accepting, receiving energy. Money flows to you thru clear streams. Of course my audiobooks sell passively; I am clear on that channel.

Boosting your blogging profits requires you freely offer what you sell and sell from a clear, confident, abundant, knowing, detached energy.

Example; note how I include 1 or more calls to action for all blog posts and videos. I offer what I sell freely. My readers never need guess. Clarity. No hiding or awkwardness or discomfort. I am clear. I sell.

How do I sell? Of course, from a calm, clear, confident, knowing I am successful energy. Naturally, I sell and profit because my energy around what and how feels clear to me.

Next Level Profits

Profit like top bloggers in your niche.

Get clear on receiving money.

Visualize yourself owning ample money. Feel rich.

I enjoy counting money in mind so it feels real to me. Swiftly, I make money through iTunes, Bitcoin and Quora, as has been the case recently.

Bitcoin and Quora are neither directly related to blogging but so goes money; it cares not channels, it justs finds bloggers clear on receiving money. Plus my blogging related profits increase too.

Picturing your wealth serves you because what feels real in mind flows into your experience.

Money and worldly success find you through profitable ideas, people and circumstances.

Execute the ideas from a chill, relaxed energy. Profit.

Freely offer what you offer. Promote yourself through every blog post and video. Tell us what you sell; we want to buy it. Sell with clarity. Know success and profits are yours; promote with clarity, detachment and a knowing that you already have profits because mind owns profits.

Blogging Is Not That Hard for Mind Scientists

Every day, my email inbox delights me.

My visualization sessions yield fascinating, profitable opportunities.

Mind creates reality.

As within, so without.

Blogging is not that hard at all for bloggers who visualize success, who feel rich, who count their blogging wins and who keep things positive.

Success follows success-focused bloggers.

Profits follow rich-feeling, riches-seeing bloggers.

As within, so without.

Get clear on selling and receiving money.
