Passive Success Follows Active Generosity

Do you really want to know the secret of passive, sweet, freeing blogging success? Do you envy those bloggers who just publish a post, hit the beach, and watch online sales increase steadily? Guess what? You too can experience that fun and freedom. Passive success – essentially, watching success flow to you through passive income and passive traffic – is yours, because all success is your birthright. The confusing part about passive success is that it occurs passively after thousands and thousands of hours, of active generosity.

How it works: spend 4,000 to 7,000 hours of your life helping people for free through blogging, guest posting, by promoting other bloggers and by opening multiple streams of income. See what I mean, guys? This is putting forth a serious effort in the active generosity department. Help people for free for years. Steadily, passive success flows your way as your skills and exposure increases to epic levels. The guy or gal who lives an incredible life of fun and freedom now, helped people for fun, with a freeing driver, for many years. Check out people who seem to be everywhere in their blogging niche; see how these folks live as a humble servant? Bingo! This is the key to passive success. Eventually, when these folks take the foot off the pedal for a little bit, all those 10,000 plus guest posts in a gazillion spots – or in a bunch of spots – drive serious traffic and serious passive income. If you are in a million spots after 10,000 hours of generous service, being in a million spots nets you a full time passive income, flowing to you around the clock.

Where Do Bloggers Screw Up?

Most bloggers desire the freedom of being a full time, pro blogger. But few bloggers want to have fun helping people and freeing people for 5,000 or more hours of their lives. Hence, the screw up. Success sounds so awesome and you feel a bit of excitement at living your sweet blogging dreams….then….whammo! After generously helping people for 4 or 40 hours or 400 hours, you panic, fail, bail and quit blogging. You desire freedom just a tiny bit, but fear being the person who generously helps people, because you fear wasting your time, you fear failing, and you just want something for nothing.

The Solution

Deeply ground yourself in freeing, truthful reality. Guys; feel good, calm and relaxed about helping people for free. Slow down. Calm down. Know that it takes thousands of hours of generous, active service to experience passive success. Now, knowing the truth, and being grounded in reality, you can proceed from a chill, giving vibe, laying the foundation for sweet, passive blogging income and traffic down the road.

Active Generosity
active generosity conquering fears for bloggers

Active generosity precedes passive success. If someone appears to have it all, on auto pilot, goodness, did these folks ever give up a lot and fall in love with the process, having fun doing so. Sacrifice did not hold these bloggers down; sacrifice freed them from old, worn out states of mind and situations. How fun. How freeing. How liberating this concept feels, when you put it into action, routinely.


Do you feel a bit handcuffed by deep fears you fight, avoid and dodge? Guys; life only gets more difficult, complex and miserable if you keep avoiding your fears. But life becomes more sweet, simple and happy if you face your fears routinely. I wrote an eBook to help you face and conquer your fears. How freeing would that be, eh? Buy the eBook here:

it’s true that people think that blogging is easy and that success is handed to you on a plate. Thinking of it as a return for philanthropic work is a much nicer way of perceiving it. There are a lot of skills involved, many of which don’t come naturally. And your suggestion of 5000 hours given freely is an interesting contrast to the idea of 10,000 hours to be an expert at something. It’s much easier to become an expert when you get feedback from people. So giving freely gives you the status of expert if you persist and that’s a title really worth having.

    Thanks for reminding us of that “10,000 hrs to become an expert” statistic. I’ve heard it before but had forgotten it. I did a little panic when when I first read Ryan’s figures, but when you put it into context of becoming an expert, as Ryan already is, it becomes much more palatable.

Hello Ryan,
So true… one must put in the hours to create content, which is everywhere, for your blog and help people. People make the world go around, right? And so many rewards come from helping others. I think so and I know you do as well .

    Hi Lesly,

    Ryan is an incredible blogger and has given me so much help, not only by writing on my site, but also by letting me write on his. I feel genuinely honored to have been a guest author on such a popular site. It makes me want to help others, to carry Ryan’s example forward – and I know you feel the same, the way you are helping bloggers.

Hi Joy,
10,000 hrs to become an expert. I am not a numbers person but I do get what Ryan is getting at. It takes a lot of work to become any type of expert. Ryan is an expert for sure. He has done so much work online.
64 books turning a few into paperbacks, he has hundreds of books on Amazon.

    Hi Kathryn,

    Indeed – it’s to do with treating blogging as a profession, rather than the quick fix that many expect it to be. Unfortunately ‘instant traffic from blogging’ is often how it’s promoted, so people can be forgiven for the mistaken impression. I was brought into blogging that way, but soon realised how impossible it was. Bloggers definitely have to be ‘in it’ for the long haul!

    Ryan is a great example to us all, and encouragement to hang on in there.
