Oh, you want to create a blog that helps and motivates people, do ya?
Oh, you want to make money online, do ya?
Good, so does everyone else.
But wanting to do something isn’t enough.
Everyone wants to “DO” something.
And wanting turns into wishing.
And wishing turns into never happening.
You know what I say?
The hell with that!
You want something?
There’s no short-cut, there’s no one feeling bad for you, and there’s no “oh it might happen”.
There’s failure and there’s success.
And success and obsession are synonymous.
When I first started online, I wasn’t obsessed.
I mean, sure, I worked hard; but nothing compared to now.
Now, things are different.
Now, I wake up every day and immediately log into my blog.
Now, I work smarter instead of harder.
I’m getting better and better.
But what’s most important is the fire that’s burning inside of me.
The fire that wakes me up daily.
The fire that can only be put out by success.
…And how do you create that fire?
By becoming obsessed.
And how you do you become obsessed?
By taking a little action everyday.
I’ve written a lot about habits, taking action, and things of that nature.
Along the way, I’ve learned a secret.
Taking a little action everyday might not amount to a lot, right?
Taking a little action everyday is ALL you need.
Because you’re building a habit which you won’t be able to run away from later.
Did you hear me there?
Let me say it again because it’s important.
You’re building a habit which you WON’T be able to run away from later.
If you log into your blog daily, eventually, you’ll do it automatically.
And if you do it automatically, you’ll be forced to work at it because looking at the same thing everyday will get boring.
You’ll want to make it better.
You’ll want to see it grow.
You’ll turn a hobby into a project.
A project into a necessity.
A necessity into success.
YOU MUST BECOME OBSESSED.
So what exactly is taking a little action everyday?
Commit to logging into your blog daily and doing something.
Whether it’s responding to comments, writing an article, or reading one of your old articles…
JUST LOG IN DAILY.
Make logging into your blog something that’s part of your day just like brushing your teeth and eating.
You do that, my friend, and you’ll see just how powerful habits are.
I can’t remember what book I read this in but it went something like this:
“The obsessive desire for what you want doesn’t have to exist, you can create it yourself with persistent action.”
Sure, you might not feel like working on your blog daily, now.
But you lite a flame inside you the moment you start.
And little by little, that flame gets BIGGER and BIGGER until you’re left no choice but to succeed in order to put it out!
(You’re left no choice but to succeed in order to put it out)
Trust me when I tell you this…
Taking a little action everyday is all you need.
So I don’t want to hear about you logging into your blog ONCE a week.
I don’t want to hear that you didn’t have 30 minutes to dedicate daily.
I want you to become obsessed.
I want you to increase the flame inside you.
I know its inside you right now as you read this.
Now make it bigger.
And realize, that there’s no way to put out that flame without succeeding.
…That you’ve already lit the flame and unless you turn your wants into obsession, that flame will be with you for the rest of your life asking:
“Why didn’t you ever put me out?”
We’ll talk again soon,
