I scanned my inbox a few moments ago.
A handful of advertising opportunities met me. I replied. Placed some. Moved on.
Right now, I do not make billions of dollars through blogging. One day, based on the work I put in now, I may make billions through blogging. But I never change my proven, sound, generous strategy of creating and connecting to speed things up results-wise, or, because of my greed for wanting even more money, traffic and business success. I learned long ago how being generous, patient, persistent and trusting created long term, slow and steady, but permanent, blogging growth.
Be hyper aware of when you stop doing as successful bloggers do – generously creating and connecting – because of your piggish greediness, or, because you want to accelerate your blogging success. Guaranteed, fear drives each motive. Since fear drives each motive, you will begin doing stupid, stingy stuff, taking short cuts, ditching the proven strategy, and you will position yourself to struggle and fail. Most bloggers foolishly ignore good advice because fear-filled minds seem blind to good advice but love bad advice. Bad advice includes doing anything not leading to lasting blogging success. I do as I do because being generous, relaxed and trusting in self and in a sound blogging process allows success to unfold organically to me, in sweet, seamless fashion.
Meanwhile, fear-driven bloggers who greedily want bigger bucks and more traffic ditch their generosity, patience, persistence and trust and do failing stuff guaranteeing their failure. Think of the last time you blogged generously, intelligently and soundly for 3-6 months, then, when nothing appeared to happen money-wise and traffic-wise, you threw up your hands, and said to self, “It Is Not Working!”, panicking, and quitting on the successful blogging process.
Either you quit blogging all together for months to retard any progress. Or you began spamming, taking short cuts and trying to get something for nothing. Either way, failure will meet you for 5, 10 or 15 years if you do not adopt a generous, proven strategy for succeeding online. Success meets you only if you follow a generous, proven strategy for succeeding online, over the course of years.
But if you bail every time you feel a bit scared – because of diminished profits and/or traffic – you literally need to start over again. 100% of the time, because each moment you spend following a failing strategy pulls you away from successful blogging strategies. You cannot work both at the same time.Simply face your fears manifested as speed/greed, feel the unpleasant energies and proceed from a generous, abundant strategy of creating and connecting. Success will flow toward you but you need to meet blogging success halfway, by generously helping bloggers through creating content and building connections with both bloggers and readers.
Life gets uncomfortable but easier if you face, feel and release fears. Life gets harder if you stay in your comfort zone, refusing to face fears. You choose. You decide. Everything genuinely is on you. Own it. Be completely responsible for your life. Be completely responsible for your choices. Even though sitting with fear versus panicking feels rough sometimes, the blogging success you experience is well worth a few moments of blogging discomfort.
Feel your fears to starve greed, speed and NEED, of its poisonous fuel. Proceed working a successful blogging strategy.
