I just spend about 4 minutes scanning through emails. All guest post and sponsored post pitches today came from energies of fear-scarcity-poverty. Since I ignore scarcity, I deleted single replies and labeled all double replies as spam to be done with barterers. I give no energy to fear of money loss. I give 100% of my energy to generously helping you with more helpful blogging tips content.
Do you see how this works? I spend 3 minutes ignoring poverty to spend 14 minutes generously helping you with this post. I help more people this way. I have more fun. I gain skills. I also gain exposure. Credibility? Thumbs up! But only because I am giving 100% to generously helping people versus trying to barter with tire kickers and other folks afraid to spend money.
Being afraid to spend money means you vibe from poverty. Good luck trying to build a business on the backs of people living in poverty. Sure it can be done but darn, you will have serious problems branding yourself and your blog to appeal to people who want $5 sponsored posts but offer the funny “volume discount” 🙂 I do get how times may be tight with some bloggers, customers and clients but business is business.
Do people who barter your rates barter rates at the doctor’s office? Of course not. Have the posture of a doctor. Turn away or ignore anyone who does not pay because you run a blogging business, not a charity. Have blogging posture. Buy the eBook – prior link – if you need help developing blogging confidence, clarity and to learn how to give your energy to generosity, not scarcity.
Basically guys; you have compassion for people vibing from an energy of fear but ignore the energies because you do not want fear, poverty and scarcity in your life. Where your attention and energy goes, grows. Nothing personal. Just business.
Then, you give all of your attention and energy to generously helping people online through your blog, guest posting and by helping fellow bloggers. Giving all of your attention and energy to generosity increases your skills, exposure and credibility. Skilled bloggers with massive exposure and rock solid credibility make money blogging because you and I buy from people we know, like and trust. Ditto for hiring people.
But of course, the time element shakes out most bloggers. I know personally how being generous requires a full time commitment to being generous over thousands of hours. Working for free for this period of time triggers ALL of your money fears along the way.
Triggering your money fears gives you a firm, clear choice; either you move in the direction of scarcity and poverty, making blogging business choices from the fear of money loss, or you feel the fear, release it and gain your posturing grip again.
All sits on you. Everything is up to you. From personal experience, sitting with fear, feeling it and releasing it makes perfect sense because a moment of unpleasant emotions leads to being generous, posturing and detached about the blogging process, again.
Being generous, confident and clear allows you to keep building your blogging campaign on a posturing platform, positioning you to succeed online. Help people for free all day long. Open income streams to profit. Traffic, profits and business increase for you if you be a generous blogger but never take pit stops to argue with scarcity-focused, poverty conscious bloggers who never seem to have enough money for anything.
Ignore poverty. Something neat happens; more prospering people find you. Paying clients show up without bartering one bit. Plus you enjoy the process seamlessly, being calm, at peace, and free of people drunk on ego, void of abundance consciousness and dripping with scarcity.
