Mindset is pretty important for the success of your blog or online business.
Here is what I am focusing on in 2019.
Tell me know what your goals are for 2019 in the comments.
Believe In Myself & My Abilities
It is so important to believe in yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else out there is going to either. Believing in your abilities and having the mindset that if you work hard at something you will always be successful is an important trait to have as an entrepreneur.
Without believing that you will absolutely, without a doubt crush ALL of your goals, it can be really difficult to go after something like blogging. As a new blogger you don’t really see the benefits of blogging at first. But, I can almost guarantee when blogging is done the right way, the hard work WILL pay off. You just have to believe that.
It is so easy to always see the negative in everything and it is definitely okay to have those days. We all do from time to time, but don’t make it a habit.
Try to see the positive in everything. Always see what you do have rather than what you don’t. This mindset will help throughout life and blogging.
Make Quiet Time A Priority To Think & Be Creative
Recently, I have started taking time for myself to think mostly about my blog and business. It has really helped give me clarity on the direction I need to go in order to continue growing.
For me, as a mom, I make time early in the morning or at bedtime because these are the quietest times in my home. Figure out when the best time is for you. Even if it is 15 minutes of quiet time to let your mind think clearly, believe me this is a goal you want to have for 2019.
I have noticed that I have been so much more organized with my content and I have been more motivated and focused on the end goal of making this my full time job.
Step Out of Your Comfort Zone A Bit More
It can be really simple to fall into a routine with blogging, but if you want this to eventually turn into a business then stepping out of your comfort zone is so important.
For me, it is connecting with my audience in a more personal way. I am also not so good at being in front of the camera. I am definitely a writer by nature, but sometimes it is difficult to get in depth on topics without video.
I have been preparing myself to get in front of the camera a whole lot more this year. Especially on my Instagram because with the stories feature a lot has changed. I honestly don’t really go through my feed as much anymore, I do watch a lot more of the stories for the people I am following. So if I do that as a consumer, I know a lot of other people on Instagram do that too.
These are pretty much the mindset changes I am making so that 2019 is a successful year for my blog and my business.
I also wanted to share with you that I have started accepting clients this month for blog coaching sessions.
What I can do is take a look at your blog and social media, ask you a few questions, and together we can come up with a strategy for your blog to help it grow and become exactly what you want it to become.
