Every minute to me is precious.
I am a bit like the Gordon Gekko of blogging. I do not waste time.
I spent the past 20 minutes:
- trying to fix my phone of a delay-freezing problem
- clearing my Facebook cache
- recording and uploading a video
- broadcasting Live
- seeing my Live broadcast freeze
- turning off the phone
Now, I write this guest post.
Pro bloggers do not:
- attach heavily to any one channel
- force stuff through online channels
- cower to obstacles
- surrender to obstacles
- fight obstacles
- act powerless
….at least. largely, we do not make these choices, as obstacles arise.
Pro bloggers release obstacles and move on to the next opportunity. I would have preferred to upload both the live video and recorded video to my blog. Perhaps when I reboot the phone I can upload the recorded video. As for the live broadcast, ain’t gonna happen. So I write this guest post. No problems on Blogging Tips today. No Chromebook issues. So…..I write.
Plus, I just buy and enjoy a weird Thai sweet snack like this, to pass the time.
I tag Monna Ellithorpe and Don Smith in this post because both blog awesomely, both network generously and both watched the live broadcast for a minute, before my phone froze. Versus seeing the freeze as an opportunity lost, to help Monna and Don, I seize this opportunity to help both bloggers with links in, because I think in terms of abundance, not loss.
I could not help both buddies by sharing my blogging experience via video but I can help both buddies by giving them backlinks on an authority blog. See how being flexible changes your life? See how releasing obstacles quickly to seize more opportunities helps you be more and more successful?
How Most Bloggers React to Obstacles
Inflexible, rigid bloggers err in complaining about resistance. Complaining makes you cling to obstacles. Not complaining helps you release obstacles. Sure I could have complained about my freezing phone or wasting time or any one of a hundred things, but complaining does not serve you or me. Complaining just displays my non-acceptance of what is, quite a silly thing.
Most bloggers struggle because most bloggers complain about obstacles. Since we all face obstacles you will fail every time you complain or whine about facing resistance, regressing, eating into your growth and delaying any semblance of progress. Meanwhile, I released the obstacle quickly and moved on quickly to seizing this guest posting opportunity.
Who do you think appears more prominent in their blogging niche? The complainer, or the blogger who seizes opportunities? Me, of course.
2 Tips for Releasing Obstacles
Release obstacles by:
- doing deep yin yoga
Both practices open your mind, expand your awareness and help you be aware of your feelings.
I noted how much I complained about obstacles the moment I began meditating regularly. Ditto for deep yin yoga. I prefer deep yin yoga because doing deep yin both expands your awareness and opens your body, improving your flexibility. Improving bodily flexibility carries over into your blogging life. Like, this morning for me; I was flexible, open and willing to release trying to get videos on Facebook because I accepted how the phone did not agree with my intent. 20 minutes later, I will have written and published this guest post, letting go the obstacle and fear of loss to make room for abundance, gain, generosity, service and greater success.
