How often do you achieve your blogging goals—always, occasionally, or never? If you didn’t answer “always,” the reason you don’t achieve your goals more often can be explained in one word: you.
Yes. It’s your fault.
I don’t want to make you feel guilty but admit it… You stop yourself from achieving the blogging results you desire. You get in your own way.
It’s time to get out of your way. Stop stopping yourself. And knock your blogging and publishing goals out of the park!
Master Yourself to Master Goal Achievement
How will you do that? Simple: Grow. Change.
Dive into personal development, so you develop the mindsets and habits necessary to achieve your blogging goals.
Your current habits and mindsets have only helped you create your current level of success as a blogger or author. To accomplish larger and more important goals this year—or even the smaller ones or ones you never achieved last year, you need a new and improved you.
When you learn how to master yourself, you’ll master goal achievement for your blog…and every other area of life.
Personal Development vs. Blogging Skill
People often ask me why I became a Certified High Performance Coach and focus on personal growth so much of the time. The answer is easy. Personal development is the foundation for success at anything—including blogging.
I haven’t always been motivated to sit at my desk and produce work daily. I haven’t always been productive, creative, positive, or confident about my writing or blogging.
But I worked on myself. I read books and took courses on personal development. I got coached. I changed. I became a person who could succeed as a blogger and an author.
And you can, too.
What’s Your Blogging Goal?
Maybe you have some big, audacious blogging and publishing goal, like blogging a book that gets published. Possibly, you have a small one, like getting 100 readers to your blog per month. In either case, you must possess the habits and mindsets that help you achieve these goals.
You can’t make excuses about why you can’t write your posts, tell yourself you aren’t good enough or believe blogging or blogging a book will be hard. You can’t stop every time a challenge presents itself. These behaviors and ways of thinking will not support achievement of your blogging goals.
Instead, you have to influence yourself to sit down and write—no matter what, confidently and consistently produce blog posts, embrace the struggle, and take action toward your blogging and publishing goals daily.
Like the late Wayne Dyer taught, you have to tell your negative thoughts to “be gone.”
If you don’t do that already—if this is not your normal way of being, you must figure out why and how you can.
That takes internal work. That takes personal growth.
And personal development can be harder than blogging or getting published. But it’s just as satisfying…and it’s necessary for success.
How to Achieve Your Blogging Goals
Your current blogging habits have only helped you achieve your current level of blogging success. If you aren’t happy with what you have achieved to date, it’s time to change something.
The first thing you need to change is you.
After all, you are the one who determines if you achieve your goals or not…even if you think there are outside influences. There aren’t.
It’s all about you and how you respond or react to the things that happen in your life…the challenges that come up that make it seem difficult to blog successfully.
If you truly want to become a successful blogger–to reach your target market and make a positive and meaningful difference to your readers, you must help yourself succeed. You must change and develop new habits and mindsets that support achievement of your goals.
Figure out how to become the best writer and blogger you can be—and the best person you can be. Take action to grow and change. Then go out and accomplish your goals and make a positive and meaningful difference with your blog.
