Simple. Actions. Compound. Into. Something. Spectacular.
Sear this idea onto your mind. With a branding iron. Feel the sizzle as the idea becomes part of your blogging being. Simple actions compound into something spectacular over the long haul. People who succeed just did simple things every day for 5,000 or 10,000 hours….or more. I heard a blogger note how he made millions of dollars because he did simple things like posting daily to his blog over 15 years.
He appears to reap spectacular results now but did simple, basic, plain, not too sexy things for 15 years of his life. He had blogging posture (buy the eBook). He did not panic or bail after 4 hours, 4 days or months of doing simple things. He did not quit after complaining about making no money after blogging for 4 months. He did not quit after blogging for 4 years. He did not quit after blogging for 14 years. He did simple things daily for 15 years. Naturally, he made millions and millions of dollars through blogging because spectacular results follow simple actions, taken over many years and thousands of hours of your life.
Blogging gets easier and easier if you blog simply even when it feels scary to keep it simple. Imagine writing one blog post for 365 days in a row. Simple. But if you made $45 in earnings after blogging daily for 365 days, you may feel highly uncomfortable, as scary, sad, depressed emotions arise. At this moment, either keep doing simple stuff and position yourself to see spectacular results, or stop doing simple stuff and never see spectacular results. Every time, YOU make the decision. You decide. Your choose. No person, place or thing has power over you. Even your feelings lack power over you. Nothing forces you to choose or not choose to blog simply; you choose.
Every day, do simple things like creating one piece of content, commenting genuinely on 10 blogs and noting 1-3 other bloggers through your blog posts. Do this simple stuff for the next 3 years, every single day. Slowly but surely, spectacular results come into form. Do the same simple things for 10 years every single day. After 10,000 plus hours of doing simple things, spectacular results will be yours.
Wait until you spend 15 years doing simple things. Wait until you see those results. No short cuts exist to blogging success. Nobody has a secret hack. Nobody allows you to skip the simple actions or time element of blogging. Stop greedily pawing at courses, eBooks or strategies, looking for a quick fix. Every eBook I write and the course I create preaches following your passion, being patient and persistent and seeing the blogging process through, following simple steps every day of your life.
Simple actions compound into something spectacular because 10 quality blog posts I publish daily (between videos, podcasts, and guest posts) mushroom into 3,650 blog posts over the next year. Imagine 7000 plus blog posts with my name attached circulating around the web, 2 years from now. Do you see how this compounding effect of doing simple things grows into something spectacular? Of course, you need emotional intelligence to capitalize on the compound effect because you need generosity, patience, and persistence to see this blogging journey through daily, over the years of your life. I feel you are up to it. Why not? When you think about it, either you spend time and energy blogging the right way, or waste time and energy blogging the wrong way.
But blogging the right way triggers fears you need to face, feel and release, in order to do simple things daily for the next 5-10 years of your life. Be with these fears. Feel the fears. Observe as your 10 comments a day compound into 3,650 genuine, valuable comments, at the end of the year. Everything simple in nature, that you work, and commit to, multiplies into something staggering over 5, then 10 years of your life.
