Being a blogger is not like being an employee.
None of us sees even income daily, weekly or yearly.
Some days you make some money. Others, more. Some days you make little money. Some days you make a lot of money. Weeks may pass and you may not make a cent as a newbie. Months may pass without making $5. Some days seem like you sit on the top of the world. Other days, income dies.
Welcome to being a professional blogger.
You are an entrepreneur. You are not an employee.
As a new blogger you always make 0 dollars. I added the zero for punctuation. Had to stress it. Mainly, because even as a seasoned veteran, when I see income change a little bit day to day, I do a tiny bit of analysis before catching myself and seeing a little bit of fear – tiny bit thank goodness – that needed coaxing, to feel, and release, so I proceed from an abundant energy.
Roll with it
Roll with income fluctuations.
Focus 99% of your energy on helping people generously. Write another guest post on a blog from your niche. Write another blog post for your blog. Publish another genuine comment on a new blog. Think of ways you can assist people to improve your skills and to increase your exposure.
Fall in love with the process and allow income focus to fade away.
You Are Human
If you feel a little fear or doubt if some stream yielded half its normal amount today, relax. Calm down. Feel the fear and let it go before acting on the fear.
Trust you are cared for. Trust you are succeeding and that things grow over time.
You are human and prone to have some fear but do not panic and bail on proven strategies if things vary money-wise, daily.
Be Grateful for What You Have
I noted an income fluctuation a little south of normal levels thru one income stream today. Initially, I felt a little fear because I woke on the wrong side of the bed. I feel tired. But I quickly shifted toward being grateful for that money. Every cent is special because it is a good thing and adds up to greater things.
As cents add up to dollars, then hundreds of dollars, then thousands of dollars, you quickly see the blessing in feeling good about every cent you make online.
Do You Feel Good Again?
Blogging is energy. Having fun, being generous and trusting in yourself and in the process breed success.
Shift from feeling worried about income streams and their daily variations. No employees work here. We are entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs can make $10,000 today and 0 dollars for the remainder of the week. This is common as you build business because you are not everywhere yet. Your exposure has not yielded blogging income daily.
Relax. Do not analyze your actions or feelings yesterday. Be here and now. Be grateful for anything in your life to feel better. Leave the logic roller coaster of thoughts and feelings. Keep doing what feels good to you and success will find you in increasing amounts.
The key is to roll with day to day income changes because money ebbs and flows as an entrepreneur. Be calm. Be easy. Exit survival mode.
