I believe that one thing set a successful blogger from a average blogger, and that is mindset.
I’ve seen many that have been successful blogs on the side of why having a full-time job and demeaning family.
To some, it was hard, some were working two jobs a day. And still went through all odds to create what was beneficial to the society.
Then have seen many that after a month or two blogging. Quit and began to campaign that blogging doesn’t worth it.
Only one thing can get you through
In the beginning, you’ll feel so excited about your new project.
It’s like that rush you get at the start of the year when you’re setting your goals and you can’t wait to crush them.
You make to-do lists and carve out a plan.
You set your plan into motion, but then as the days go by, you lose that palpable energy you had at the start.
You get busy with school, work, relationships, you name it. You lose your momentum.
It’s happened to me time and time again.
I love the start of a new project when my creativity seems to be overflowing.
I’ll have so many content ideas that I can’t wait to work on them.
My energy is at its peak because of this creative adrenalin rush.
I’ll be glued to by computer working at it until late at night because I’m so focused.
And then, I’ll miss one day of working on my project because of something unexpected.
I’ll get tested with how I manage my focus and time.
I’ll miss another day and another.
Before I know it, I’m so busy that when I finally have the time to work on content, it’s a struggle to get back to it.
There will be days that you’ll feel the challenge to even start writing a new post or record a new video.
Other times, it could be that you’ve been pushing yourself to create, create, create and you don’t get the results you’d hoped for.
You may feel like you put in a lot of effort to produce something you’re proud about, but then you get less than 20 views.
There will be days when you feel like all that effort and hard work is for nothing.
It’s as if you’re stuck and you haven’t made much progress. So what’s the point of continuing?
If you’re having a tough time, will you just give up?
It happens to all of us, but it’s your mindset, your grit and your perseverance that will get you through.
- Know why you are blogging.
Motivated by blog income reports from seasoned bloggers, they think it’ll rain dolla dolla bills once their site goes live.
Like many of us, they start with high hopes and when results aren’t produced fast enough, they lose focus and eventually give up.
When the going gets tough, and you don’t have a clear goal established, it’ll be that very moment that’ll either make or break the course of your blogging journey.
Here’s the thing- when you strongly believe in your why, your purpose becomes much more stronger than your challenges.
So, take a moment and ask yourself: Why do I want to start a blog?
A simple answer like “I need money quick,” surely ain’t gonna cut it.
Rather, give some depth to your why.
For example, I started this blog because I wanted a flexible and fulfilling career where I could genuinely help others and be able to live life on MY own terms- all while building a passive income stream.
Think about how you can use your expertise to provide value to others and how you can solve your readers’ problems.
Once your why is clear, your journey to become a successful blogger will be that much easier and meaningful.
- Constantly take action on your blog every day
It is easy to dream big but if we don’t take consistent action to turn them dreams into reality; everything is just going to stay as a mere dream. We all can have what we desire in life or have the excuses for not working towards what we want. Which one do you want?
Everything starts from taking action. But to turn your dreams into reality you need to take consistent action. Using your small progresses as stepping stones, you can shift the power inside your head to take more effective actions that are going to bring in the results.
- Stick to your blog routine as your life depends on it
Now the only way you are going to make it big is by taking consistent action towards a common goal – being successful. Be persistent and do whatever it takes. Create a routine that best suits you and stick to it like your life depends on it.
There are times where I totally do not want to follow my schedule and do what I need to do because I am either too tired or overwhelmed or simply because I want to spend quality time with my family. These are the times when I believe in myself that I have to do it which invigorates me to really get my ass into it.
- Learn to treat failure as lesson
You will make many mistakes and there will strategies that won’t work. Your blog might break or your niche might not be the right fit for you or your audience.
But don’t despair.
It does not matter how many times you fall.
You just have to keep getting up and trying. There’s no other way
conclusion, for blogging, you need the right mindset to become successful. For that your focus should be on the problem, provide a solution by helping them, and how do you find the problem and the solution, then it’s simple you have to focus on subcategories and put yourself in their shoes, understand the difference between knowledge and specific information. In short, this type of mindset you have to build for your audience.
