Facing and feeling fear is the most difficult aspect of being a blogger. Far away, this is the most difficult part of blogging as an amateur or a professional. Some bloggers say it’s list building or increasing sales or growing a community. Not true. The actions themselves are not difficult but the emotions you unearth and need to feel to successfully do those things are incredibly uncomfortable to embrace because feeling fear is the most difficult aspect of being a successful blogger. If feeling fear felt easy everybody would be a billionaire blogger. But this is not the case. Most bloggers struggle like hell to make even a cent so fear is the obvious reason why bloggers struggle.
Everybody has access to the simple, practical tips to become a successful blogger but few act on these tips. Why? Fear. Laziness is fear. Panic is fear. Worrying that blog commenting is a waste of time is fear. Being anxious about not being able to pay your bills is fear. Writer’s block is fear. Getting angry at being criticized his fear. The list goes on forever because fear can go on forever unless you face and feel this damaging energy. Developing emotional intelligence helps you face and feel fear but feeling fear is still the most difficult aspect of being a blogger. No practical tip in and of itself is difficult to follow but the fears you need to feel to put practical tips into action successfully is highly difficult and even more uncomfortable to embrace.
Who enjoys feeling deep fears? Nobody. Who enjoys facing less subtle but still strong fears? Nobody. No blogger enjoys feeling fear because facing fear and feeling the emotion feels incredibly uncomfortable. Welcome to being a pro blogger. You need to face, embrace and release fears to become successful because all success in blogging or any venture sits on the other side of fear. Life is that simple and uncomfortable. Blogging is only difficult because of fear. Without fear, blogging would be easy. But since we are human and have fears, blogging feels highly uncomfortable and quite difficult from time to time.
Beware bloggers telling you that blogging is super hard. Not true. Anybody can stare into a camera and talk. Anybody can write. Anybody can buy an e-book and put the advice into action. The bridge between doing these things and succeeding with your blog drips with fear. The fear makes blogging difficult. Everything you are not doing with your blog is because of fear. No other energy plays a role in this not doing. Your mind may tell you differently but your mind only sees illusion until you train it to be hyper aware of your thoughts and feelings. This is why I spend hours daily managing my energy. I expand my awareness to be aware of fears and to feel these energies so I can move them along.
Do you enjoy feeling a sinking pit in your stomach? Nope. Do you enjoy feeling embarrassed or ashamed? Nope. Do you enjoy feeling hopeless? Nope. Facing and feeling these emotions feels incredibly difficult but in truth it is just highly uncomfortable to feel your fears. Get used to it. From time to time you just need to face fears to become a successful blogger because all the traffic and profits you intend to accumulate sit on the other side of fear. Being generous, patient, persistent, relaxed and trusting sits on the other side of fear. Feel it. Once you get past the most difficult aspect of being a blogger you will become highly successful in your niche of choice.
