Raising the blogging bar positions you to succeed.


But being open to opportunities makes the difference between prolific bloggers and all the rest. Opening up requires you to face fear, to think abundantly and to retrain your mind to cease rejecting opportunities.


For example, I rejected opportunities to help you through a high volume of helpful, valuable blog posts, for quite a long time. But opening my mind, facing various fears related to publishing posts frequently and retraining my mind spurred me to be more prolific and to help you with more content. However, wading through this process goaded me to face, feel and release discomfort.


Being helpful persistently allowed me to become prolific. But I had to be open to the opportunity of writing and publishing guest posts in order to be prolific.


Being open seems cool but sometimes feels uncomfortable. Fears arise the moment you ponder seizing and using opportunities. Do you fear wasting time? Do you fear wasting energy? Do you believe no one will read your blog posts or guest posts? Pondering opportunities unearths ample fears concerning pursuing each opportunity. Humans weigh pros and cons before proceeding to grab and take advantage of any opportunity. You and I simply work that way.


But wading through opportunity-induced fears seems too uncomfortable for most bloggers; proof is the dearth of genuinely prolific bloggers out there who resist the secret of being open to opportunities for growth.


Fears arose in my mind before writing and publishing this blog post. Does writing here make for the best use of my time? Should I guest post on another blog? After wrestling with a few fears I decided that being open to the opportunity made sense. Being truly helpful always prospers you. I then seized the opportunity to publish a post on Blogging From Paradise.


Writing and publishing one more post makes me a wee bit more prolific. I help you. I become more prolific. But the inner mental journey to being prolific seems secretive to bloggers mired in fear, lack and limitation. I vividly recall one struggling blogger who turned their nose down at guest blogging opportunities because the blogs seemed less discerning, less inclusive, less reputable, since lowering publishing standards. The ego is an idiot. The ego is foolish. The ego blinds itself from its nightmarish struggles and arrogantly turns down solutions to struggles, due to its pride, vanity and overall insanity.


Meanwhile, prolific bloggers rarely pass the blogging mike because grabbing opportunities makes one prolific. Being prolific allows you to help an increasing number of folks from your blogging niche.


Isn’t that the point?


Why is being open a secret to being prolific?


Most bloggers are closed. The ego closes its mind to opportunities for all manner of fears popping up in ego. Perhaps you fear rejection. Maybe you fear criticism. I recall feeling terrified to seize a guest blogging opportunity for a high prolife blog nearly 5 years ago. An influential blogger invited me to guest blog on his site. I eventually grabbed the opportunity and published 1200 guest posts on his blog but had to wrangle fears in my mind trying to turn down the opportunity.


Most folks blog with a closed-mind. Closed-minded people close themselves off from opportunities for different reasons but pulsating fears usually dominate both the mind and the reasoning process. Opportunities seized burden the scared, closed mind with back-breaking responsibility.


Do you see why being open to opportunities is such a secret? In a world of closed folks, being open feels like the great mystery. Being prolific is being open to opportunities for service and growth. Ultimately, being prolific depends on you being truly helpful.


Are you up for that?


I believe that you are.
