Want to have a successful blog? achieve a full time income home based online? grow a huge audience? increase brand awareness and popularity? Whatever you are trying to achieve, if you fail, I know the reason why.
I know exactly why you fail.
In fact, whenever you fail at something you want to achieve, I have a universal reason why that happens.
Remember this, it’s always and for the same reason why fail you at something whether it is in the form of physical, mental, online or offline, anywhere.
It’s called not knowing your path.
That might not reveal the exact answer, here are some more similar definitions so you might understand.
- Researching the procedures to finish
- Understanding the way to your goal
- Knowing the steps to success
Here’s a better one: Knowing exactly why and what to do to achieve your goal.
The concept is simple, all you need to do is understand the structure of your objective.
We’ve been knowing this concept ever since we were born.
What do you need to do in order to play with your toys? Move towards your big-o-box and grab the trains and planes out.
What actions do you need to perform in order to watch your favorite TV show? Switch on the TV by pressing the power button.
What’s in common?
Knowing the cause of success.
When it comes to blogging, it’s the same, you need to know what to do in order to achieve that goal, that aim.
If you don’t know the procedures, you will panic, frustrate, scratch your head, and have absolutely no idea what to do.
You need to know what to do next.
Solution? Research and study.
Ever heard of something begin with “Researches and studies have found that blah blah blah“? Heh, do you understand it now?
No, I’m not suggesting you should begin all your introductions like that. All I’m saying is if you don’t understand the procedures that complete your goals, you need to research and study.
Of course, nothing is fail proof.
There are times you won’t accomplish your goal even though you have researched and studied the procedures for as long as 24 hours. How do you solve that?
Research why it failed.
Once you understand everything behind the scenes, success will naturally run to you.
I believe examples are the best in explaining things:
Say your goal was to get more traffic to your blog, then find out how to get traffic, the answer is promotion, and blog promotion means guest posting, that’s your answer.
Into the second tier, so you have traffic, you will need to set another goal, say, to turn first time visitors into loyal readers, then find out what makes them stay, the answer could be to display a mailing list sign-up box and capture email addresses.
Into the third tier, you have to be specific, don’t set generic goals like “to make money online”. Now you know what makes the traffic come back, a new goal is how to ensure the highest percentages of visitors will give you their email? The solution could be to offer a freebie (also called magnet or bribe).
And the list goes on until it resolves all your concerns and has helped you achieve your main generic goal. Yes, I said generic, the main goal is generic because the more tiers your procedures develop, the more specific each one get.
Summing it up
Every time if you want to achieve something, or make something happen, you need to set goals, and to successfully complete those goals, you need to research and study the procedures that accomplish those goals, remember, be specific with each further tier, not generic.
Note this concept applies not only to blogging but to anything throughout your life.
Once you understand something as clear as crystal, success is yours.
