Recently, a friend of mine showed me this video called “The Secret“, where it tells you that anything your heart desires can be manifested through the law of attraction, be that positive (which is what most of us want), or negative (those things we shouldn’t dwell on).
This idea really interested me. The basic premise was simple, through concentrating on the things you want, the universe will eventually give it to you. If you are a negative person, always concentrating on debt, don’t be surprised if things happen that cause you more debt. If you are positive, focusing on the life you want to live, then the universe can unfold in interesting ways to provide that lifestyle for you.
With blogging, you also need to have a positive attitude. Sure, there are snarky bloggers, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are negative, but instead playing a role online to entertain in a different way.
What I think bloggers really need to focus on are their goals. We are fresh into a new year, and so this is the time to do that. Don’t just write them down once, but instead, read them every day. If you want more traffic, more money, money contacts, and more content, then you need to set goals for yourself and continually remind yourself of them.
While I don’t believe that the universe will magically make it happen, I am sure something sticks in your subconscious mind, and helps you slowly make movements in your life that will get you to where you want to be.
I never thought I would be a full time blogger, and then when I was guest blogging for Darren Rowse, I changed my mind, and decided that writing every day was something I wanted to do for a living. I then risked everything by turning down part time job offers, hoping for the full time blogging job that would get me out of the sales industry I was in, and low and behold, it happened.
I am living proof that you can make your dreams a reality, and while you might think this post is cheesy, I hope that you will at least heed my advice, write down your goals, put them next to your keyboard, and read them every day.
