I slept for 4 hours last night.
Here I am publishing my 4th post today. Why? I am not really driven. But I love what I do. I also am comfortable with being uncomfortable. I am willing to dive into fear. Some of it is me loving blogging. Some of it is serving you.
I enjoy having fun helping people become successful bloggers. Knowing this, I blogged generously for a long time because my passion for blogging and rendering generous service fueled me to sustain this journey. Far and away, my mindset made the blogging difference. I had to think, feel and act like a successful blogger before becoming a professional blogger. Mindset made the difference.
Perhaps you see most bloggers struggle. Struggle is of the mind. Struggle is fear you refuse to face, feel and release. Imagine having problems driving blog traffic. I suggest guest posting. But you fear getting rejected. Fear is of your mind. Mindset problem. I suggest publishing frequent posts to your blog. Posting once weekly ain’t cutting the blogging mustard. But you fear not having enough blog post ideas to ramp up post frequency. Fear is of your mind. Mindset problem.
My blogging course changed by digging into my mind’s fears. All of my blogging struggles seemed to be linked directly to fears I held in my mind. I faced, felt and released fears. Feeling fear felt terrible. But after releasing fears, I slowly but surely began doing what pro bloggers did. I created content and befriended bloggers over a period of time from a relaxed, trusting energy.
Fears arose again and again. But I did not resist fears and panic. I felt fears, released fears and created/connected my way to becoming a professional blogger. Mindset made the difference. Blogging is between the ears. Even if blogging seems like a hard work deal, like all appearances, the seeming is illusion. Any work you do – or avoid doing – is because of the thoughts and feelings you feed into your mind.
I begin each day doing Kriya yoga. Doing Kriya gets my mind right. After tensing sessions, I feel differing emotions. Sometimes I unearth, face, feel and release fears holding me back. Other times, I feel relaxed, and glide through my blogging day like a hot knife through butter. But every day, doing more Kriya, yin yoga and meditating influences me to cultivate a more abundant, relaxed, peaceful, generous mindset.
If ever there is a perfect mindset for becoming a pro blogger, this is it. Being generous, abundant and relaxed about it all gives you energy to blog the right way for thousands of hours. Blogging the right way for thousands of hours precedes a pro blogging career. Again; mindset made the difference.
I suggest you:
- do yoga
- ground yourself by breathing deeply for short periods daily
- cultivate gratitude
- feel abundant
- surround yourself with generous, compassionate people
I wrote an eBook to help you be peaceful. Genuinely, developing greater peace of mind allowed me to think, feel and act more clearly to become a pro blogger. I failed by living largely in a state of mental chaos. I freed myself by renewing my mind. But renewing my mind required a full energetic commitment on my part. I do not play around. Hours daily, my mindset training regimen spans.
But I cannot argue with the results, having circled the globe as a pro blogger. Check out that featured image; me in Thailand from a fear years ago. Follow my lead. Get your mind right to get your blogging right.
