I scanned my email today.
After wrapping things up email-wise I transitioned into creating and connecting through my blog and through social media making a seamless shift.
A few years back, the transition would have been choppy, filled with resistance. Why? I made a common blogging action-oriented mistake that totally messed up my day, energetically and work-wise.
I discuss the error via this Facebook video:
How many times have you been in the same boat guys? You see some success and instantly analyze all the steps you took in the prior day to set up that success. Then you attempt to replicate the success the following day by taking the same exact steps. But since success is progressive and flows to you however it intends to flow to you, nobody may buy your course or hire you for the next week or month. Natural, normal ebb and flow of blogging, guys.
You panic. You bail. All because you never realized: blogging is not robotic but rather an energy game. Plus, blogging success flows to you after months or years of generosity-backed creating and connecting.
Every time someone buys my eBook or reaches out to me for a sponsored post opportunity or hires me, that abundance rooted itself in my energy. Money flowed to me because I acted abundantly for a sustained period. Give. Get. Simple as pie.
The actions mean little because blogging is not robotic. Blogging is an energy game.
This is why you may have been creating and connecting for months and years, and have yet to see a dime through blogging. Ego says your actions should lead to success. But your energy screams stingy, poverty and scarcity, dripping with fear.
If you have made little money through blogging you are not being generous. You give from a stingy energy, rooted in heavy conditions (I will help folks only if they do something for me) and rarely if ever act from an abundant energy.
Mind says to take specific steps daily to replicate success but the energy behind actions means everything while the actions themselves mean little.
Few bloggers understand this concept. Few bloggers succeed.
Long Term Giving Leads to Progressive Getting
Every time someone buys my eBook I realize these days how the getting of money preceded itself with the giving of value, over days, weeks, months or years. Not because the person needed to see my message for years to be influenced by me, but because consistent, generous giving helped me establish clarity and detachment, leading to me allowing in money.
If someone buys your course today it is because you generously created helpful content and built meaningful friendships with bloggers over weeks, months and years. Today’s success was not predicated on yesterday’s action; today’s success happened due to last year’s actions.
Guys; resisting the urge to analyze feels highly difficult at times. I need to catch myself here and there because my mind enjoys running on analytical tangents after I land a customer or client or major feature.
I just keep promoting my eBook, I create helpful content and I build meaningful friendships with top bloggers in my niche.
Avoid getting all caught up in blogging outcomes. Stop analyzing everything. Focus on your energy.
Are you acting abundantly? Are you helping people with their problems through your content without trying to squeeze traffic or profits out of them?
If so, you will become a successful blogger.
Blogging is not robotic. Blogging is energetic.
