Why I Started Writing A Bolg

I don’t claim to be a professional blogger.  But then what is a professional blogger?

  I found an interesting article by professional blogger John Saddington titled The Definition of a ‘Professional Blogger’ or ‘Full Time Blogger’ In this post he explains a few different viewpoints.  

There are a number of differing viewpoints and not one of them is necessarily incorrect; in fact, anyone has the full right to call themselves a ‘Full Time Blogger‘ or ‘Professional Blogger’ regardless of any outside opinion. But, there seems to be an understanding, both cultural and nuanced, about what it means to be ‘Pro.’

Just think about it for a moment, especially as it relates to professions and jobs in other areas – What do you think of when you say that so and so is a Professional? You probably assume a number of things, right?

I started my blog a few years ago just to voice my opinion about things going on in my life I am passionate about.   Learning how to fine tune, hone in, really dig deeper into the fine art of blogging came from meeting Lesly Federici owner and expert author of The Power Affiliate Club.  The PAC is a community of bloggers helping each other and offering advice.

I needed to have a voice 

Writing my thoughts down and sharing with my readers gives me joy.  Mind you not all comments I receive are nice and thank you’s.  However for the most part people get interested and comment back.  Having your followers comment on any posted article is an honor.  I must be doing something right.

When I first started out my posts were short, not alot allot to read and I didn’t really post many images.   My  very first blog article Creating Your Brand looks absolutely pathetic now.

  What was the point I was trying to convey to anyone?

 How do you create more leads, more people to talk to when you’ve gone through your list and heard all the excuses and all the “NO’s” so many times?

Create a brand for yourself. What ??? What I mean is one must be willing to create a brand of themselves on the internet to attract the people they want into their business.”

That’s the jest of it.  No instructions given, no real helpful advice.   Not so much as even a link to another resource for help.  

My main goal

For you , my readers to like what you’re reading and hopefully learn something new along the way.

My personal goal is to continue growing and learning about ways to improve my writing as well as my mindset for success.

I hope you found this enlightening and as always,

3 Ways Of Finding A Fresh Perspective Towards Success

Sitting here in the Snowshoe Motel in Frisco, Colorado in a much needed vacation with my husband. 

There’s just something about the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.  Breathing in the fresh mountain air, dropping a fishing pole into a creek or reservoir, spending time outside in the quiet of nature, lead me to three ways of finding a fresh perspective towards success.

  1. Stop focusing on the past!
  2. Focus on the present!
  3. Change the outlook for the future! 

Stop Focusing On The Past

It’s seems like every time we’re getting ahead something comes along from past mistakes, grabbing my attention and making me feel gulity, worthless, like I totally screwed up life. 

Repairing past financial decisions, caused by myself have not been easy for me.  I hate accepting the fact that I messed up.  However I am thankful for my husband’s unconditional love and support through it all.  

When past creeps up remember your past is over.  It NEvER defines you!

Focus On The Present

What is happening right now to steal my present success?   Staying stuck in my past mistakes keeps me from moving forward in all areas of life.

What steps can I take to change the outlook?  Letting the past go even when it knocks on my door reminding me of what I’ve done.   Reading positive and motivating books such as Think And Grow Rich by Napolian Hill or  7 Habbits Of Highly Effective People by Steven Covey.  Just two of my personal favorites.

Writing a list of personal successes will help keep your focus on the present and the future. 

Change The Outlook For The Future 

Look forward to new challenges. Tackle them head on.  

Write down a new daily, weekly and one yearly goal.  Yes I said one yearly goal.  It’s August 12, 2017 so that leaves almost four months to complete it.

I found this helpful article by Tiny Budda with tips for changing your perspective.  A great point 

When I decided to change my perspective, I felt comforted to know that all that I was going through had a purpose, even if I did not understand it. I found a peace in knowing that I could change my mood in an instant by changing my perspective.

It’s up to each individual person to decide whether to move forward with the present and change the outcome for the future, or stay stuck in the past with regreats and anxiety.

I welcome your comments and feedback.

Sharing  — Share your business opportunity with at least 10 new people or at the bare minimum 5 people to start building relationships and trust with. Make this a quick less than 2 minute introduction and ask them if they’re interested in watch a video,  listening to a CD or whatever tools you can provide to get in front of them within the next few days.

Creating Content  —  Create content people will want to read, look at and become interested in.  Social media can work to your advantage.   Learn how to leverage the time you spend on Facebook,  Twitter, Instagram, Google+,  LinkedIn and whatever other social outlet you’re using.
