In my blog automation eBook, chapter 1 reminds you to engage.
Even though automating helps ease our blogging workload, automating the right way involves work so nope, it is not an easy strategy. Engaging people on social media is simple but work. Definitely not an easy gig. Ditto for any online endeavor. Goodness I enjoy blogging. I love circling the globe. But being a professional blogger is not easy. If going pro were easy, everybody would go pro, right?
Dream Life Means Dream Effort
How I see it; dream-worthy lives requires a dream-worthy effort. Anyone can become wildly successful online. Taste success. Smell success. Drink it up in your mind’s eye. Good. Be well on your way. Then, put in work to make your dreams come true. Rest assured, there is no easy, piece of cake shortcut to being a successful online entrepreneur. Stop looking for the easy way out.
Quora Questions Being Questioned
Following up on yesterday’s post, I scanned a few questions on Quora. Someone asked how to run a business that makes millions of dollars every year. Think through this question. Guaranteed, the aspiring entrepreneur seeks some easy way out because he asks a serious question involving a thorough, complete answer, on a free Q and A site like Quora. He can ask any question he wants on any site but I see red flags the moment someone desires to make millions yearly because if big bucks drive you, expect failure to follow you….quickly. Dreaming of big dollars in a short time frame suggests you want an easy way to do it. Serious aspiring entrepreneurs grounded in reality seek out millionaire entrepreneurs, buy their eBooks, purchase their products, hire them for coaching and learn from the best how to make millions each year. Of course, this is not easy because few do it and few relish facing, embracing and releasing deep fears on the entrepreneurial journey, before hitting it big.
No Shortcuts Exist
Never look for shortcuts, hacks and other easy ways out because each is a shortcut to nowhere, a hack guaranteed to cut the legs out from underneath your online business. The more freeing, sometimes uncomfortable way leads to long term success because you and I need to face fear before developing skills, exposure and credibility enough to succeed over the long haul. Sometimes, facing deep fears feels terrible. Feeling terrible does not feel easy, comfortable or fun, does it? Of course not. But since no easy out exists, simply put your head job and get the job done. Blog the right way. Blog with integrity. Stop looking for hacks. Stop trying to get rich quick. No such way exists for long term bloggers because quick online riches go in and out like the ride. Prosper the right way. Adopt a generous, patient, long term approach because even if it feels tough sometimes, this is the way to building a thriving blogging business.
Stop Chasing Millions
Stop chasing millions, turn key systems spitting out money on auto pilot and all forms of easy online business success. Forget about it. Overnight success does not happen because if it did, every entrepreneur would become a millionaire fast. Instead, a select few generous, patient, persistent business owners who do not take short cuts and see the journey through over years, become the next wave of online millionaires.
No Easy Way Exists
Stop trying to take the easy way out. Build an online business the right way. Good things take time, generous effort and a full time commitment for years of your life. Such is the price of unlimited freedom. Be willing to pay the price in order to go pro in any business niche you choose.
