Many of us were raised to view life from a perspective of lack. We see the world as not having enough resources for everyone, when in fact the universe holds unlimited resources.
I've always been interested in the fact that there are people with what we consider average looks, average intelligence and limited education who become hugely successful. How do they do it? What do they have that helps them create this tremendous success? I believe it has to do with their outlook on life.
They live from a perspective that there is enough for everyone. In other words my success isn't contingent on your success or failure.
From a blogging perspective, if you have thirty thousand followers how am I supposed to become successful. You already have a huge piece of the pie and that leaves me with only a small sliver. That is looking at it from a position of lack. How many blog readers do you think there are? Not only are there millions of blog readers who might find my blog, but many of your thirty thousand followers might also be interested in my blog, or maybe my readership will be different. Maybe, I need to open myself up to the possibility that the people who will truly be interested in my blog are out there just waiting to find it.
I believe it is human nature that we all will have moments when we feel discouraged, when things may not be going as planned, but I think those are the moments when we need to look at the message we are sending out to the universe. For me, after I have my pity party moment, I take time to think about the message I am sending out. Am I saying I don't have enough, I will never have enough, I will never be a success? If I am then I know I need to move away from a position of lack.
I don't think we attract what we want, but what we are. It is important to live our life being honest with who we are, and I think that carries over to our blogs. We must know who we are and write from that perspective. I believe if we do that the universe will send that honesty back to us.
So I will never try to copy anyone else's style. I will try to learn from others, but I will always be honest with who I am. I will walk the talk.
What is your perspective?
