OK; you can succeed online sans being a fitness nut. Some bloggers experience worldly success but fall terribly ill. I do not call this success in my eBook. Sure looks like jail, to me, living in an unhealthy body while experiencing worldly success.
Next level success requires some deep energetic commitment to fitness because you need to feel good in your body to sustain this blogging journey. I learned this lesson years ago. I grew up being a fitness nut but began practicing emotional hygiene through meditating, doing yoga and taking a daily icy cold shower, many years ago. I noted a direct correlation between my blogging success and being in tip-top shape.
I spend 3 hours daily keeping fit. 90 minutes of deep yin yoga and 90 minutes of power walking energize me for my blogging journey.
Feeling good helps dissolve writer’s block, keeps ideas flowing and boosts energy levels on awesome days. During rough days like today, I knife through difficult moments versus quitting.
I train my body and mind to be fit. Being physically and mentally fit stabilizes my energy. Feeling stable, grounded and present allows me to knife through fears so I can keep blogging through thick and thin.
I wrote an eBook for keeping fit while traveling that applies to blogging. Blogging is like traveling; you head to new horizons daily, seeing new blogging lands through guest posting and commenting, leaving your comfort zone routinely. Since I have blogged for over decade and traveled for a decade I know darn well how each activity mirrors each other.
Having a cheery, peaceful, loving frame of mind and fit, flexible body helps absorb the stresses, fears, and resistance of blogging. Per example, my severely stiff neck, now. I want to mail it in.
I prefer to go to sleep for resting my neck. But nudges tell me to get the job done. I get the job done because my mind and body feel fit. In essence, being fit, healthy and energized allows you to weather uncomfortable thoughts and feelings in body and mind. Being comfortable with being uncomfortable goads you to keep blogging until you go pro.
Can You Succeed without Being Fit?
Of course, success can be yours no matter what because success is in consciousness. But people who succeed blogging with unfit minds and bodies do not genuinely enjoy the journey because you can’t feel awesome if depressed and out of shape.
Maybe you drive serious traffic and profits but nobody enjoys their blog if they are not mentally and physically sharp.
Why not get fit and enjoy the ride toward running a successful blog? Feel good. See good. Feel successful. See success.
Make freedom your #1 goal. No sick person can be free until free of their sickness. No sick person enjoys their wealth via blogging success feeling like a prisoner in their body. Freedom is health of mind, body and bank account. Freedom is a free experience on multiple levels.
How to Be Fit
Buying my eBook is a starting point, as I guide you to be fit.
Spend 1 hour or more daily working out your mind and body. Do not take days off from mental fitness; meditate or do deep yin yoga to be mentally fit.
I spend 90 minutes doing deep yin to open my body and mind. Plus I do 90 minutes of power walking to make my body strong and to keep my energy flowing.
Do what vibes with you. Minimum, 45 to 60 minutes of walking daily do the job. But jogging or running work too.
Keep fit. Walkers, 7 days weekly works fine because you do not need much rest. Runners may break 1-2 days weekly. Speak to your doctor if you exercise for the first time in years. After getting the OK, gently but firmly nudge into a regular exercise routine. Commit to your fitness campaign. Observe how your blogging success begins to mirror how well you take care of your body and mind.
See Through Fear
I see through fear and knife through resistance by keeping fit.
Do you know how many bloggers blame writer’s block for their blogging woes?
I wrote and published 8 posts today between videos, blog posts, and guest posts.
No big deal. Ideas flow my way because I vibe higher and higher, out of the realm of fear, into the realm of abundance and generosity. But being fit requires a full commit to being fit, day after day, for years.
I take no days off from walking and yoga for many years now. Been this way for a long time. Why would I do things differently? Health is the first wealth, and greater worldly wealth flows from good health.
Succeeding online is worth the commitment to keeping in shape.
