10 Reasons To Start Blogging Now If You Haven’t Started Yet

10 Reasons To Start Blogging Now If You Haven’t Started Yet

There are millions of blogs on the internet. It was reported in 2013 that there are approximately over 152 million blogs on the internet and they are growing at the rate of 2 blogs per second. The interesting fact is that only 1% of the internet users are creating new contents for the web. The bloggers are one of them.

Why blog? Blogs can be valuable to people for number of reasons. In this article, we have listed some of the reasons you should start blogging right away, if you haven’t yet started.

1. You’ll learn new things.

Learning is a constant process. Learning is growing. As you grow into a seasoned blogger, you will have learned several different things about your field of interests. You will share your knowledge on your blog posts and that desire to share without running out of things to share sets you onto the path of constant research and learning.

You will find yourself constantly scouring the web, reading books and articles in search of new things to share with your audiences and over time, the inquisitive learner that you were once, becomes a complex man of knowledge. With blogging, you will get to know a number of different things that interest you and acquire valuable new skills.

2. You’ll become a better writer.

Writing is a blogger’s virtue. But writing is no easy job. Quite often even professional writers find themselves struggling to find the right words to communicate their ideas. And even more often do the novice bloggers find themselves short of words and lacking in the field of articulation.

The good news is: like everything else, writing improves with practice. Blogging offers you a platform to practice your writing skills. Keep on blogging and there will come a day when you find yourself mesmerized by your own ways of putting words together to communicate your ideas. Without doubts, blogging sharpens your writing skills, slowly but surely.

3. You’ll be more confident.

Blogging teaches you to voice out your opinions and express yourself confidently. It gives you the freedom to express yourself without the fear of being wrong or being criticized.

You learn to accept that not everyone will agree with your opinions and outlook on things. You will learn not to get carried away with praises and flattery. With blogging, you will improve on your weaknesses, recognize your strengths and learn to accept challenges.

4. You’ll be more creative.

The hard work you put onto writing and publishing articles on your blog not only exercises your thinking, reasoning and communication skills, it also ignites your creative side. It pushes you to imagine the beautiful things you want to create and gives you space to work on your creativity.

New thoughts and ideas start to set off in your mind. Your desire to constantly give your audience something new compels you to be more observant, resourceful and creative.

5. You’ll be more organized.

Blogging forces you to learn to organize your thoughts and ideas. When you sit down to write about something, the ideas in your head are often messy and unclear. As you write, they start to take shape and come alive into your writings. You organize your thoughts and lay them neatly into words. That teaches you to be organized in every aspects of your life.

6. You’ll be able to establish yourself as an expert.

When you keep learning and writing a lot about things in a specific area of your interest, it establishes you as an authority in that space. It validates your expertise and stands you out there as skilled and knowledgeable. That builds your credibility and it also looks good on your resume. Opportunities follow after that.

7. You’ll inspire others.

Bloggers have the platform and the tool to inspire their readers. Some of your readers might find inspirations in your writing which might change their lives for the better. And that’s a good feeling, knowing that you’ve inspired people and have brought some good changes in their lives.

And those inspirations translate well on your own life too. It compels you to be disciplined and have healthy habits so that you can keep on inspiring. Bloggers have that power to inspire millions and to aid good causes.

8. You’ll meet new people.

Your audience will reach out to you directly sometimes. And who knows, you might find friends, partners, or lovers (if all the stars are aligned right) in some of them. You will create relationships with people who are interested in similar things and expand your network. It is always a nice experience meeting with interesting, like-minded people and making friends out of them. Blogging gives you that opportunity to connect.

9. You’ll make some money.

There are hundreds or thousands of bloggers out there who are making good money through their blogs. If you have a blog with a good lot of readers, you have good opportunities to make money out of it. You can monetize it by publishing ads or endorsing products that your audience may find relevant.

Sometimes, people reach out to offer you jobs like writing articles, proofreading and such. Blogging makes a good source for some extra income. And it’s nice to get paid for what you love doing.

10. You’ll create opportunities for business.

Blogging allows you to reach out to the billions of internet users out there. It lets you be discovered. If you are able to establish yourself as an expert in the field you write about, people will come to you seeking your expertise. That gives you opportunities to create your own business and have new careers of your own interest. Aside from that, it is a good platform to promote your own brand or business to billions of internet users.

10 Steps For Success: Applying The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind

10 Steps For Success: Applying The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind

How big is the gap between you and your success?

What is the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people?

It is as simple as this: successful people think and talk about what they are creating, and unsuccessful people focus on and talk about what they’re lacking.

So how do you bridge that gap between wanting success and having your success? Let’s make an important distinction. You see, there is a big difference between “Wanting” and “Having” something.

Wanting: means lacking or absent. Deficient in some part, thing or aspect.

Having: means to possess, to hold, to get, to receive, to experience.

You can have one OR the other, but not both at the same time with any particular object of your desire. You either have it or you don’t.

When it comes to your subconscious, if you’re focusing on the “wanting”, i.e. the not having, guess what, you will build stronger neural networks in your brain around the “wanting.” However, through the power of your subconscious mind, you can focus on the “having” as if it has already happened. Research has shown that your brain doesn’t know the difference between what you’re visualizing inside your mind versus what is happening out there in your reality.

This is a regular practice of elite athletes. They spend as much timing creating the internal mental imagery of their success playing out as they do actually physically practicing. This helps create both the neural pathways in their brain and the muscle memory to consistently deliver on that success.

Here are 10 “brain hack” steps for success that you can take to create your version of a happy life. Make these steps a regular habit, and you will be astonished at the results.

Step 1: Decide exactly what you want to create and have

This is usually the biggest problem that people have. They don’t know what they want and then they’re surprised when they don’t get it.

Step 2: Write down your goal clearly in every technicolor detail

A goal that is not written down is merely a wish. When you write it down in full detail, you signal to your subconscious mind that you really want to accomplish this particular goal.

Step 3: Write your goal in simple, present tense words

…that a three year old can understand on a three-by-five index card and carry it with you. Read it each morning after you awake and just before you go to sleep.

Step 4: Backwards planning

See your goal achieved and identify all the steps required that it took to bring it to life. Making a list of all these steps intensifies your desire and deepens your belief that the attainment of the goal is already happening.

Step 5: Resolve to take at least one step every day from one of the items on your list

Do something every day, even if it is just one baby step, that moves you toward your goal so you can maintain your momentum.

Step 6: Visualize your goal repeatedly

See it in your mind’s eye as though it were already a reality. The more clear and vivid your mental picture of your goal, the faster it will come into your life.

Step 7: Feel the feeling of success as if your goal were realized at this very moment

Feel the emotion of happiness, satisfaction, and pleasure that you would have once you have achieved your goal. Visualize and feel this success for at least 20 seconds at a time.

Step 8: “Fake it till you make it!”

Confidently behave as if your subconscious mind was already bringing your goal into reality. Accept that you are moving toward your goal and it is moving toward you.

Step 9: Relax your mind

Take time to breathe, pray or mediate each day. Disengage the stress response and engage the relaxation response. A quiet state of mind allows your brain to access newly formed neural pathways.

Step 10: Release your goal to your subconscious mind

When you turn your goal over to the power of the universe and just get out of the way, you will always know the right actions to take at the right time.

Starting today, try tapping into the incredible power of your subconscious mind.Start with just one goal or idea, and practice it continually until you succeed in achieving that goal. Make it a game and have fun with it! The more lightly you hold it, the easier it will be to achieve. By doing so, you will move from the “positive thinking” of the hopeful person to the “positive knowing” of the totally successful person.

To your success!
