8 Dangerous Assumptions to Make about Successful Bloggers (Amazon eBook)

“Ryan is so lucky, traveling the world as a pro blogger. I want to punch him in his stupid little face!”

 

“Ryan has *always* been a master papaya picker. I mean, he has spent so much time in the tropics. Jerk!”

 

The first assumption is blanket. I get it all the time. Meaning, 1 person calls me lucky, per annum.

 

The second assumption is a weird form of jungle jealousy. Someone who envies me because they feel I *always* lived this life of world travel. As if, 12 years ago I was not dying for the last truck to leave the terminal grounds when I was a security guard at Port Newark.

 

I wrote a new eBook to help you face, own, embrace and release these poisonous assumptions to wildly accelerate your blogging success.

 

I am excited to officially release:

 

8 Dangerous Assumptions to Make about Successful Bloggers (Amazon eBook)

 

 

Why this eBook Benefits You

 

Point blank; dangerous, untrue blogging assumptions handcuff you. Disempower you. Kill your chances at being a successful blogger.

 

If you feel I succeeded with blogging because I was lucky or popped out of the womb with live broadcast video charisma, playing for the camera while I shed my placenta, you instantly believe that an element of luck or some pre-existing, intrinsic talent made me who I am today. Meaning you believe that YOU will only succeed with blogging if you are lucky or have “it”. (“It” meaning being born with some fully-developed talent, which is quite asinine, when you think about it.)

 

This eBook breaks your chains. The chains of assumption. Because dissolving these assumptions destroys the lies and instantly helps you believe that, “Hey, I can do this too! I can become a successful blogger too!”

 

My eBook helps you see you don’t need to be lucky, or “gifted” (what the hell does that mean, anyway? I was as awkward as a 13 year old sending a love letter to their 13 year old love of their life, when filming my first few videos 9 years ago….so after practicing by doing 3,000 videos, I am all the sudden “gifted”?), or connected, or any other bullshit assumption, to succeed online.

 

But making this fun, freeing and enlightening realization requires you to methodically identify, embrace and let go what you feel is holding you back….because your untrue assumptions about successful bloggers hold you back and prevent your success.

 

By letting go all of these horse crap, ย untrue assumptions I honed my blogging skills to where I was featured on some of the world’s top blogs. I became a full time, established pro blogger. I feel the joy of helping my readers become pro bloggers.

 

When you let go these dangerous assumptions you too will grow like a weed in the jungle. Blogging-wise.

 

Guys, so many people look at me and have no idea what I went through, or the fears I had to face, to reach this station in life. These same folks can taste the sweet success of being a pro blogger and traveling the world if they own and release these limiting, paralyzing assumptions, because once you stop making assumptions about pro bloggers you are free to be as they be and to do what they have done to become established, pro, successful bloggers.

 

Let’s list the chapters so you can see the 8 assumptions I dissect and eviscerate, to help you become a more successful, prospering blogger.

The Cover Story

 

I snapped the cover image during a 4 month stay in Savusavu, Fiji.

 

This was basically our front yard. Where I spent many afternoons either lifting lava boulders. Or relaxing on the beach.

 

Not bad, eh?

 

The Blind Spot

 

If you’re like me, you don’t assume too much but still have those “blind spot” assumptions kicking around in your mind. Because you’re human. Like….

 

“Guys like Gary Vaynerchuk or Zac Johnson busted their tail but methinks it may have been a bit easier for them to succeed, because they had the entrepreneur DNA as a kid, versus someone like me who was programmed NOT to be a successful, thriving entrepreneur, because I was conditioned to mistrust these lucky, arrogant, wheeling and dealing, untrustworthy louses. (apologies to louses everywhere.)”

 

Even if you are a loving, positive, supportive person, you likely have a few of these assumption-based, quite dangerous blind spots in there – aka Ryan is a natural on camera (only after creating aka practicing with 3,000 videos) – that buying and reading this eBook will help ferret out, to accelerate your online success pronto.

 

8 Dangerous Assumptions to Make about Successful Bloggers

 

Enjoying this eBook helps to remove your invisible handcuffs. Because when you stop assuming successful bloggers had it easy, to explain why you are struggling or failing, you free yourself of these devilish demons.

 

Letting go these assumptions helps you experience the sweet, fun, exciting, freeing success of increasing your blog traffic, of boosting your blogging profits and of making this blogging bit a full time venture.

 

Release assumption-based excuses. Free yourself. Have fun building a thriving blogging business.

  1. Enjoy the eBook Pavit!

  2. Thank you TJW ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been there. I still have doubts here and there to this day. But shifting toward blogging for fun has helped me dissolve many of my blogging-related fears. This journey levels out SO much when I regularly, persistently detach from outcomes to focus solely on giving, sharing and helping. My doubts die when I get super duper busy helping folks.

  3. This read came at a good time as recently I have been having doubts about myself and what I can achieve. Reminds me that the road to our destination isn’t a smooth and straight one yet it doesn’t mean you can never get there. Thank you for the inspiration Ryan!

  4. Pavit Kohli Says:

    Amazing article.
    Seems like a really useful book.
    will surely buy it.
    Thank you for recommending

  5. What a comment Benjamin!

    I had no idea the root for luck flowed from Lucifer. Makes perfect sense to me. Because believing in a fear-based concept that rules your life is the quickest road to a miserable, failed life, full of struggles and problems and disempowered states of mind and those with an energetic loser mentality flowing into your life. So happy you guys are living the dream!!!

  6. I don’t want to get religious to push it on anybody, but you mention luck in this post. You mention how you get this all the time and my wife and I get it too. We are not financially well off, but as Tim Ferriss would say, we are a part of the NEW RICH. We prescribe to a different lifestyle and it frees us to travel, even though we struggle with cash sometimes.

    Some call us lucky. We get it from family, even though the mean it from a loving place. We get it from retirees traveling by RV and wishing they had done it at our age, usually a fun conversation comes from that. Sometimes, it comes from a place of anger or jealousy.

    A while back, I decided to get to the root of this “luck” and now, I simply don’t believe in luck. This is where I will get just a tiny bit religious….the root of the word “luck” comes from the Germanic and Anglo Saxon roots for the name Lucifer, which was the name of the fallen angel becoming Satan in Christianity.

    We throw the word luck around like it happens to anybody that had that overnight success that took a decade of working hard and smart first. Luck, to me, it an evil word, even though I don’t take it this way from those saying we are lucky for finding a way to pay our bills and afford some fun and exciting travel adventures along the way.

    Personally, I think luck is the worst excuse and worst rationalization of our generation. Instead of finding the calling/passion/purpose someone is meant to work within, learning new skills and doing what it takes to become a success, many would rather just write off other’s success as luck. They are still waiting for their luck to come around. This keeps them lazy, walking towards a moving target they will never catch because they continue to think luck is the only key to success.

    I have yet to meet or chat with a single blogger, internet marketer, freelancer or any other online worker running their own thing that didn’t fail a dozen times first. So many of us have had our failures and that’s what allows us to pump out fun, exciting, educational content. Even better when we travel and can throw those fun stories in there, too.

    This eBook is already on my list as I think it will be a good read, as all of your eBooks have been so far. Looking forward to reading it Ryan!

  7. Thanks dude!

  8. I do get it along the lines that I am a natural or things come to me easy, or I make it look easy Patrick. Some things do come easy to me….after dedicating a decade of my life to improving my craft ๐Ÿ˜‰ Some of those years were not easy at all. 1/4 of my life on planet earth, spent in hell sometimes. That was not easy LOL!

  9. Good deal Ganesh. I am glad you enjoyed the read ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. This ebook is a massive bomb. Thanks Ryan

  11. hey,Ryan
    thanks for providing your meaningful infoemation, regaring the myth about the sucessful blogger.perfect article, Apperciated it

  12. Patrick Says:

    I feel like one assumption you must hear often, which may be the most untrue of all, is that professional bloggers don’t work hard or work very much. Just from the bit of blog commenting I do I can see you putting in the work to stay relevant and keep in touch with those who frequent your blog posts.

  13. Thank you Vikash ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Vikash Says:

    Hey Ryan you are a really inspiration, loving your each and every post. This post is the another example of how well you bind up a informations in an engaging post. This e-book will surely enroute bloggers to success.

    Thanks for sharing
    Vikash

  15. Amen brother. You are doing this from a heart-centered space. I see and feel it through your comments. I used to be jealous of pros but turned the poisonous envy into admiration. Then I became a sponge. I learn from guys like Pat Flynn and Zac Johnson and Darren Rowse and John Chow. I never try to beat them; I just join them and learn from the dynamos and feel grateful that these pros share their insights in such transparent fashion.

  16. DNN Says:

    Bloggers are blessed to be their own bosses as this line of work provides the freedom and opportunities to earn unlimited income. But the con to blogging is…though it does provide a way for people to become millionaires, this line of work online doesn’t provide healthcare or retirement benefits. This is solely based off of your performance. That’s why they call affiliate marketing and blogging “performance based marketing,” because you get out of it what you put into it.

    Another thing people don’t think about is channeling their energy towards building a business from the ground floor up based off of their past and current trials and tribulations. The negative energy can be used in a positive way to build a million dollar blog and be a million dollar blogging success. I could never sit back and be jealous of anyone and their success. If anything, I’m congratulating them and seeing how can I learn from that person to better my business and help others up along the journey. That’s the true mindset and heat of a business transformation champion for life. ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Hey thank you Mucahid!

  18. Thank you Ryan!

  19. Way cool Shantanu ๐Ÿ™‚ These are big difference makers because they lead to sneaky excuses that hold us back. If you own some of these excuses things will turn around for you in a wonderful way. The challenge is to own the energies and to regularly feel them, until the assumption and its emotional charge vanishes.

  20. It helped a ton that Kelli was on this journey Lisa. I feel I would have succeeded still, yet may have faced more resistance because we lived such different lives, in a way. But it sure helped to be on the same wavelength with our blogs and traveling lifestyles. So much has to do with your partner just being onboard with the life itself. Even if they work the 9-5 they can be clear on fully supporting your online venture. This makes all the difference on earth.

  21. Lisa Sicard Says:

    HI Ryan, I know it’s not luck. I’ve seen you work hard at this for as least 5-6 years now. It takes time, sweat and tears to get over the obstacles we face. But you must love it! I think that is what makes the difference. And you were willing to take chances, give up your day job and move on.
    That had to be frightening. But I bet you never regretted it.
    Do you think you would have been as successful if Kelly was not part of your life and doing the same thing?

  22. Hello Ryan,

    Great one over here buddy ๐Ÿ™‚

    Another exciting e-book to get going with. These initiative steps taken by your side is of great help to all those bloggers
    whop are struggling with their blogs. These little things make a huge difference if one is putting it correctly.

    Looking forward to grab your cool e-book.

    Thanks for the share.

    Shantanu.

  23. I left a thought.
