You are about to go deep inside the mind of someone else.
You have been working for years and earning a salary.
You wife works as an administrator.
You have a two-year-old daughter who your parents care for.
You live with your family in a three-room apartment.
You have no car, and every month you and your wife barely save enough money to go on a holiday.
Your friends are almost the same as you – all working hard to support their family’s survival.
You don’t know anyone who can help you get out of this, but in spite of it all …
You Started a Blog a Long Time Ago!
A blog you hoped you could make money from.
At first it was exciting, but slowly you started to hear people around you telling you to be realistic and to stop dreaming.
Even your parents told you to work hard and stop wasting time on something you weren’t born for.
You are Confused and Emotionally Down!
And so it continues. One half of the people online tell you not to give up, and the other half – your friends and family members – tell you to give up.
You feel tired and restless, and you start neglecting your blog.
Your posts get less and less frequent.
Your communication with your blog audience gets lower and lower.
Eventually, you sit in front of your computer and stare at a ghost blog.
You start to doubt yourself and ask questions like:
Is Blogging Right for Me?
Should I Be Realistic?
Maybe Blogging isn’t Right for Me!
Maybe that’s How My Life Should Be, Work Until I’m Old!
All the questions start to add up and, in the end, you give up and submit your life to working hard.
Earning a salary that’s barely enough for your family and accepting the fate that god has bestowed upon you.
Such is life.
But is it?
Well, you may think you were born poor.
You may think none of your family members had any businesses.
And you may think you had to continue this hard-working legacy until you are old and retire.
But the Truth is, None of This Matters!
Success in blogging or anything else in life doesn’t have to do with where you were born, who had a business in your family, and what sort of legacy you need to have.
If you walk the streets of Afghanistan, you might think the people there have no chance at success.
But the truth is, in Kabul, you’ll see five-year-old kids patching potholes for cash.
You’ll see teenagers buying and selling phone cards, profiting on the margins.
You’ll see entrepreneurs all over the place, building businesses, brick by brick.
Heck, there are people in Africa taking loans to build a business, without an ounce of an economy in place!
Organizations like Kiva are creating amazing opportunities for people!
Just look at me. All my uncles, and my father, own a business, but I’m still working in a company and, at the same time,
Fighting for My Freedom!
You might think my success was already locked in, as the family business would be passed down to me, which I assumed it would be many years back.
But now it doesn’t seem so likely.
Although my family business is profiting each year, my father is slowly losing control and my uncle has almost everything under his command.
And now his son is working in the company as well.
Do You Think I Stand a Chance?
Surely, I’m going to get wiped out from the business.
So, tell me: does success in blogging or anything else in life have anything to do with where you were born?
The answer is… definitely no.
Let’s move on to who you should associate with in order to be successful in blogging.
Well, you may think none of your friends are entrepreneurs or business owners, so you’re destined to be in the group of people who “work hard till they retire.”
But the truth is, it doesn’t matter who your friends are.
What Does Matter is Who You Think You Are!
If you think you are going to give up, you will definitely give up.
If you think you are more than what you are right now, you can definitely become more than what you are.
Look, all my uncles are business owners. Does that make me successful?
I’m still working for my dear life every day and fighting for the freedom I believe in.
You see, I even have friends who have gone to a prison because of drug trafficking.
I have known all kinds of people in my life – liars, idiots, assholes, prostitutes and even prisoners – but still I am who I am right now, sharing what I know in this post.
So, do you think you need to associate with entrepreneurs and business owners to be successful?
The answer is… definitely no.
Let’s move on to where you should live to become a successful blogger.
Well, just look at the three biggest companies in the world. They started in a garage.
Google – Started by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in a garage.
Amazon – Started by Jeff Bezos in a garage.
Apple – Started by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in a garage.
Look, there are people who live better than them, eat better than them and sleep better than them, but none even came close to building the world’s biggest companies.
You won’t build the world biggest company, but at least…
You Should Build a Successful Blog that You Can Be Proud of!
You see, you can live anywhere in the world.
As long as you have a computer and an internet connection, your environment will not have any effect on your blogging success.
Now you might be thinking that if success in blogging is not about where you were born or who you associate with, then what is it?
The answer is simple.
Success in blogging or anything else in your life is all about your mindset.
What you think makes you who you are.
If you have a poor mindset, you will definitely be poor.
If you have a rich mindset, you will definitely be rich.
Providing, of course, that you at least have a goal and a big idea.
I could point to a thousand success stories of people born in rags who later earned riches, just as I could point to hundreds of examples of immigrants working so hard that they build wealth that lasts for generations.
Just sit down and think about the lifestyle you could have if you could stay at home with your family.
Think about the kind of apartment or even houses you could live in and what kind of happiness you could enjoy with your family.
Look, you can either try to find success, no matter how hard you must work for it, or you can let excuses and other people rule your world and…
Spend the Rest of Your Life Wishing You Gave it a Shot!
Life is short.
You can never go back in time, so stop wasting your precious time thinking about what others say.
Instead, think about what you are going to do next to achieve the success you deserve.
And here’s what you are going to do next…
I don’t want to go deep into telling you how good Wealthy Affiliate is, because you will find tons of reviews out there.
Every product, program and membership out there is only giving you valuable information.
Whether or not you can succeed depends solely on yourself.
They cannot make anyone else successful.
Neither can I.
The Only Person that Can Make You Successful is Yourself!
So, if you don’t sign up, since it’s free, you need to do yourself a favour.
You need to stop reading my blog and accept the fact that you’re just a wannabe and a dreamer.
Hey, there’s nothing wrong with that.
It’s not like you’re an axe-murderer or something, is it?
But then again, if you’re a player, then you need to sign up now.
