Blogging money, blogging traffic and blogging business flow inside-out.
Few bloggers understand this basic truth. Most bloggers try to work outside-in by attempting to manipulate people, circumstances and things to experience success. All of these bloggers struggle, fail and quit because outside-in blogging is fear-based; fear-actions lead to failure 100% of the time.
Blogging becomes easier if you clear your inner world of fear, regularly. Void of deep fears, even though blogging feels uncomfortable in moments, the journey gets easier. Then, really easy. But few bloggers clear inner fears so blogging feels tough, difficult or even impossible. Do you crave blogging success? Stop craving blogging success. Get super duper busy following your passion and facing, feeling and releasing deep fears related to blogging and life. Slow, steady, ever-expanding success follows. Fear prevents success. Fear creates struggle. Love is the absence of fear. Love promotes blogging success.
Every blogging problem is in your mind. Traffic problems are fears in your mind manifest as traffic problems. For example, a pro blogger may advise guest blogging and genuinely commenting on top blogs from your niche to put traffic problems in your rear view window. But fears in your mind manifest as excuses as to why you cannot or will not guest blog or comment genuinely on blogs. Guest blogging is neutral. Genuine blog commenting is neutral. Neither can do anything because both are inanimate concepts. No blogger can blame guest blogging or blog commenting for traffic struggles because neither are sentient.
What is the problem? Fear in your mind attempts to scare you into not acting on proven blogging advice related to guest blogging and blog commenting. Face the fear in your mind. Guest post. Comment on blogs. Increase blog traffic. Solve your traffic problem.
Of course, facing fear feels highly uncomfortable. Bloggers tend to suffer from struggles rather than make uncomfortable decisions. Few bloggers go pro because most prefer comfort and failure over freedom, success and temporary discomfort. Either you face fear to succeed or duck fear to fail and quit. Blogging does not care if you blame blogging for your problems because blogging has no ears, eyes or feelings. Either you project fear and quit or face fear and succeed from the inside-out.
Everything depends on you.
Be open to accelerating your blogging success from the inside-out. Stop looking to anything outside of you as a blogging savior. Email lists, Google traffic and meeting the allegedly right blogger with connections do not make you successful. Long term blogging success flows from your mindset into the outside world.
Email list subscriber numbers fluctuate. Google traffic comes and goes. Blogging influencers come and go; even if you befriend an influencer you cannot depend on the individual for your success because you cannot control them and they have a freeing, fun, busy life outside of you.
However, strong-minded bloggers experience increased success because this crowd engineers success from the inside-out. Note how pros teach you to blog mainly for fun. Pros also advise you to follow your passion. Fun, passionate emotions are inner drivers forming an inexhaustible source of blogging fuel independent of outside conditions like traffic or profits stats.
Promote your blogging success from the inside-out.
Build your blogging campaign on a rock solid foundation.
