Do you struggle with your blog? Your blogger outreach?
I know how frustrating this feels. I also believe you will get through your blogging struggles. But when is the last time you humbled yourself and listened to advice from a professional blogger? When is the last time you bought a blogging course? When did you last buy a blogging eBook? How often do you learn, assimilate and benefit from pro blogging experience, from the knowledge imparted upon you, by top blogging pros?
Every established, pro blogger wields thousands of hours of practical, real world experience. Listening to pros just gives you access to the experience, the wisdom, the complete pro package, without needing to go through the same exact experience. But most bloggers foolishly listen to their ego over humbling themselves and listening to established, pro bloggers. Ego signals downfall. Ego leads to struggle. Ego leads to failure. Ego leads to quitting. But putting your ego to the side opens you up to advice that puts you on the successful path.
Every blogging problem or struggle gets solved the moment you open up to the solution. Every problem attaches itself to the solution. Every obstacle attaches itself to an opportunity for growth. Pro bloggers seem to be masters in identifying problems and attached solutions quickly, easily and seamlessly. Do your job as a struggling blogger; listen to successful pros who truthfully pinpoint your problems and solutions.
Stop saying you know the root of your problem; likely, you do not. Ego does not like being brought to light hehehehe 🙂 Stop saying you know the solution to your problem. Ego loves admitting it knows how to succeed but rarely acts on actual proven, sound blogging strategies generously, persistently and patiently to manifest lasting success. I blogged for a decade and learn new blogging concepts daily. If a guy with 10,000 plus hours of blogging experience still learns from pros, you better be learning from pros, too.
Pros see your ego blind spots. Imagine you struggle to increase productivity through your blog. Your ego believes it knows the cause of and solution to your blogging problems. But if both claims seemed true, you would be successful, not struggling. At this point, ego uses fear to preserve itself via excuses like, “I am busy,” or “I am lazy.” Fools trust their ego. Wise, successful, abundant bloggers ignore ego, and listen to advice from established, pro bloggers. Pros know how to succeed. Pros also see you in the light of truth. Most bloggers feel a stinging sensation the split second truth enters an assessment of their blogging campaign. Perhaps you explain in abject frustration how you “already created thousands of pieces of content and nothing seems to be growing, profits-wise.” In the next breath, an established pro explains how some pro bloggers publish 1000 guest posts on a single blog.
Humble yourself; creating thousands of pieces of content is generous and success-promoting, but you are just getting started if you want to do something special. Genuinely, if you want to hear the truth, pros tell you that you will be generously creating free content for 4, to 6 to 8 hours a day across a wide range of channels, to do something epic.
Pros help you see what your ego tries to protect, preserve and hide. Leave your blogging struggles behind. Listen to a pro. Follow their advice. Free yourself and accelerate your blogging success.
