Blogging mindset is everything.
Let’s take a step back.
Sometimes, you get so caught up with acquiring and following practical blogging tips that you ignore how blogging is about emotional intelligence first and foremost. Do you wonder why most bloggers fail? You and I have access to every successful tip under the sun. Why do few bloggers follow good advice until succeeding?
Enter poor emotional management.
How you choose to think and feel determines how you act. How you act determines your blogging results. Feeling disgusted and flat out hopeless destroys the successful blogging process because disgusted bloggers feel terrible. Terrible feeling bloggers usually quit blogging. Some of these bloggers blog from a failure energy, doing dumb stuff and struggling until they change their vibe.
How it works; bloggers begin blogging filled with enthusiasm, vim, and vigor. But after a short period of time, bloggers see little or no results in terms of traffic and profits. Disgust arises from within your being. Do you want to quit? Yep. Do you want to smash your laptop screen? Perhaps. What happened? Blogging seemed promising during newbie days. Why do you struggle and more importantly, how do you get over this disgusted, deflated feeling?
Follow these tips.
Be With the Disgusted Emotions
The quickest way to erase disgusted emotions is to FEEL the disgusted emotions. Does any blogger enjoy feeling disgusted? No. But you cannot get over a feeling if the feeling is still in you. Embrace disgust. Cry. Get upset. Clear the emotion of hopelessness by feeling it freely and genuinely. Most bloggers make the error of trying to bury disgust under false positive vibes. Guess what? Disgust and failure grow in your being and you will struggle and fail until you feel your fears, pains, disgust, and contempt.
Shift Your Intent: Make it Fun and Freeing
Disgust arises because you anger over an outcome – traffic and profits – not being where you want it to be. Laymen’s terms; you focus your intent heavily on getting money and traffic and shortages trigger disgust.
Shift your intent from financials to freedom and fun. Make fun, the reward. See money as an extra or bonus. Seeing money as an extra keeps you calm and confident and trusting in the process if 0 bucks or 2 bucks or 10 bucks represents your entire blogging profits. No blogger feels disgusted if they do not get what they are not really chasing.
Even better? Blogging mainly for fun and freedom positions you to be generous, patient and persistent. Generous, patient and persistent bloggers make sweet money, over the long haul.
