I say it all the time, but mindset is so incredibly important to condition for success when embarking on a blog to business journey. SO much of what holds people back are just false beliefs in their minds of what they can and can’t do, so recognizing what those are so you can get to taking action towards what you really want in your life is EVERYTHING. On my own blog to biz journey, I’ve had to really dig deep into myself to identify how I was in my own way and stopping my own success. When you sit down and really analyze what is really going through your mind regarding things such as running your own online business, it can be quite shocking! Once I took control over my mindset and conditioned it everyday, the progress and breakthroughs along my journey are pretty mind blowing.
On that note, here are 3 important mindset shifts needed to turn your blog into a business:
View Your Blog as a REAL Business
I see faaaar too many bloggers out there trying to turn their blog into a business by virtually spending nothing and expecting a massive return, but then getting discouraged when things aren’t going the way they want. This mentality is keeping most people stuck. If you really want to create success as quickly as possible, viewing your blog as a real business and investing in it like a real business is essential. You can’t expect people to invest in you and what you have to offer if you are not willing to invest in yourself to show up in the best way possible for the people you serve. Viewing your blog through the lens of it being a business will allow you to take what you are doing way more seriously and set you up for greater success. This mindset shift was the biggest one I had to make for myself on my blog to biz journey and made one of the biggest differences in the way I took action towards my goals.
Ditch the Fear
Every single person on this earth feels fear. Especially if you embark on an entrepreneurial journey in life, the amount of uncertainty can be overwhelming, BUT that it is also the beauty of it! It is that satisfaction of pushing through your fear ( which is mostly just trying to keep you playing small) and coming out the other side with some amazing accomplishments is what makes creating your dream online business worth it. People have fears of showing up as fully themselves or fear of investing in tools or mentorship or fears of what others will think. Everyone who has ever been successful has had to push through fears of their own. It is just a part of the process and makes you so much stronger and confident after pushing through and allowing yourself to create great success. Change and amazing things happen outside of your comfort zone so don’t be afraid to push through those fears that are just holding you back from living your dream life!
Believe and KNOW That You Can do This!
This is the most important mindset shift and is what will keep you going through the process. Without some type of belief in yourself and abilities to turn your blog into a business, all efforts to do so will lead to no where. The times when things seem to not be going your way, it is easy to get discouraged or feel defeated, but keeping your eye on the prize and having full and total belief that you can make this happen with persistent and consistent action will help immensely to keep your mindset on track. If you have to, sit down and create a game plan for yourself of how you could potentially reach your goals. Write down all the different ways you could potentially turn your blog into a business by creating products or offering services, etc. If you are able to show yourself how it could be possible, it is a lot easier to prime your mind for success. Believe fully in yourself that you can make it happen and never give up on your dreams.
