Most bloggers struggle because most bloggers blog in survival mode.
Blogging in survival mode influences you to play small. Playing small guarantees your blogging failure.
Most bloggers blog to eke by. Blog to make a few dollars. Blog to pay bills. Blog to survive.
A few bloggers blog to follow their most fun, freeing dreams. These few bloggers reach the top of their niche.
Why? Bloggers who blog for freedom do generous, freeing, fun and sometimes uncomfortable things for a long time to live their dreams through blogging.
Everybody else gives up because who in their right mind keeps blogging just to survive? You may as well get a job to survive; at least you’ll benefit from a steady paycheck.
Check out the featured image for this blog post. I snapped this picture in New Zealand. My wife and I visited New Zealand for 2 months a few years ago. Stare at the image.
How would it feel to spend 1 month in this exact spot? How would it feel to see the sunrise for a full month in this fashion? Imagine yourself enjoying a cup of coffee, breathing the fresh air, and soaking up this pristine, peaceful sight.
Whether you live in Nigeria, the United States, India, or Bangladesh, every human being intends to have fun, to be free, and to love life with their family and friends.
Every blogger desires freedom deep down but most bury this freeing intent with strong fears scaring said bloggers into survival mode. Stop blogging to survive.
Stop blogging small. Stop playing small. Blog to live your dreams. Blog to thrive. Blog to have fun. Blog to be free.
Picking a fun, freeing driver inspires you to do fun, freeing things to live your dreams.
Blogging to follow your dreams feels uncomfortable sometimes because your fun, freeing dreams to sit on the other side of your intimate, personal fears. But look at that New Zealand image again. Become emotionally involved with the picture.
How would it feel to wake up to that image every single day? I did it for 1 month. I guarantee you that facing, feeling, and releasing your fears is uncomfortable but trivial compared to spending a month enjoying these sunrises in New Zealand because the fun, freedom, and liberation of living in a beautiful place is worth facing your fears for a few moments.
Blog to live your freeing dreams. Making uncomfortable decisions gets easier if you blog to live a fun, freeing life. Face your fears by imagining how freeing it would feel to circle the globe as a professional blogger.
Picture feeling afraid to broadcast a live video for the first time. But imagine knowing that broadcasting live will help you live in Bali for 3 months as a professional blogger.
In a split second, you will broadcast live and face your fear because your love of freedom overpowers your live broadcasting fears.
That’s it. That’s the professional blogging journey. Fall deeply in love with living your dreams well before your dreams come true. Blog for freedom. Blog for fun.
Face your fears by intending to be free. Facing your blogging fears becomes easier if you keep your fun, freeing, dream reward in mind.
Blogging gets easier if you blog to follow your dreams.
Blogging gets tougher if you blog to survive.
Everything is on you.
