Blogging can be challenging at times, especially when feeling overwhelmed by keeping to a blog-posting schedule, building audience on social media, or learning new skills. That’s when finding a positive blogging role model proves helpful. Whether it be a favorite blog-to-book author, prolific blogger, or committed writing buddy, having someone to look up to, learn from, imitate, and glean inspiration from can profoundly impact your blogging and writing journey.
Let’s look at the power of positive blogging role models and how they can encourage and motivate you to succeed as a blogger and blog-to-book author.
The Power of Positive Role Models
Humans are creatures of imitation, shaped by the company we keep and the models we follow. That’s why positive role models profoundly impact shaping our character and habits.
When you see someone who represents desirable traits, habits, mindsets, and values, you realize that person is worth emulating. While negative role models can lead you down an ineffective or undesirable path, positive role models can inspire greatness and motivate and encourage you to achieve your blogging and writing goals.
Positive writing role models probably exist outside your immediate circle of family and friends. They can be any bloggers you admire and respect. Be sure to choose a role model with traits you want to emulate, such as confidence, perseverance, positivity, commitment, self-integrity, productivity, or courage. By observing and learning from this blogger’s positive character traits, you can strengthen those traits in yourself.
In fact, you can decide to take on an identity that has those character traits. If, for example, your positive blogging role model is exceptionally committed and self-integral and, therefore, consistently keeps his promise to himself to write for three hours every day and publish posts twice per week, you can decide to be committed and self-integral, too. When you adopt this new identity, you will almost automatically take on the same character traits. Thus, you will find it easy to keep your promise to write daily and publish posts weekly because you are being someone who is self-integral and committed.
Don’t underestimate the power of positive blogging role models. They can and do have a profound effect on your life and inspire you to become the kind of blogger you know you can and want to be.
