Get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
I wrote and self-published 126 eBooks because I love writing and feel comfortable with being uncomfortable. My simple, 2 step process seems simple, too, until the moment you face deep fears. Now my neck feels super stiff. I feel like I left my comfort zone quite a bit. Does it feel good to type with a stiff neck? No, not at all. But since I genuinely enjoy writing and can be with having a stiff neck, I write this guest post. I also love writing and promoting my eBooks. Guest posting and blogging offers me two promotional channels.

No blogger manufactures a love for writing. Either you love writing deeply through your being or you discover this love by writing a tiny bit, OR you do not love writing. Someone asked me how you can develop a liking for writing content. I say, impossible. No blogger can develop a love, or liking, for writing unless the love is present. Passion needs to be in you for passion to be possible in any online endeavor. I wrote a bit to unearth my writing passion but the passion resided within me, for unearthing. Do you see what I mean?
Being comfortable facing fear is a highly developed skill in all prolific bloggers. I may love writing but live in a body experiencing a wide range of emotions daily. Sometimes, fear arises in my being. My neck and shoulders feel really stiff now. I betcha 90 to 95 out of 100 bloggers would stop blogging now because neck stiffness is a discomfort too tough to bear, especially my level of neck stiffness. This is why most bloggers never become prolific; being prolific unfolds well outside of your comfort zone. Most bloggers have little interest in nudging outside of their comfort zone.
What tips, tricks or tactics allow you to leave your comfort zone routinely? Fall more in love with loves in life, and with your dream, than you fear facing fear. Do this. Being prolific – if you love writing – happens naturally. Most bloggers have no issues writing 1 post weekly. Why not write 1 post daily? Why skip out on writing 1 post daily? What scares you? Writing too much content? Annoying or overwhelming your readers? Burning out? What discomfort must you feel to proceed from an abundant, successful energy, to be prolific and to live your dreams?
Challenging and dismantling your blogging and writing limiting beliefs is the direct way through these fears, to allow your love of writing to shine. Be prolific by writing with passion, directly into your uncomfortable fears. This is the beginning point of publishing a high volume of helpful, usable, inspired content for your readers. Nobody says being prolific is easy. I slammed into many mental blocks during a stretch of writing 1 eBook daily for 3 months in a row. But if it were easy, everybody would be prolific and I never would have to write and publish a post on this topic. Why? Everybody would be prolific so who needs help in becoming prolific when we are all prolific….right?
Be passionate about writing. No way can you fake it, though; passion flows from within, from your heart. Keep leaving your comfort zone as you explore this passion to become prolific.
