I enjoy looking at things in a different perspective, at least to differ from the majority while playing within the mainstream. So I applied this mindset to see how self-esteem – the amazing god-given can be used in blogging. BUT, if anything, what does this have to do with bloggers and successful-bloggers? In fact, everything.
Its all about authority. You have authority which reflects in your blog, which then becomes an authority blog (over a period of time…yes!). Self-esteem is your ticket to being an authority in your niche. Simply put, you must regard your self as highly as possible for your audience to believe in you. The problem is when you try to walk the bridge in reverse gear. Its when you start with the blog and want to make yourself an authority using the blog. Sure it works, but there are secrets to it.
Self-esteem is your best friend you’d ever want to know, especially if you are a blogger. It does not matter what others think of you because it won’t be any better than what you think of YOU. I recently followed a business lecture, which explained the essence of marketing. Have you ever wondered why, that you’re struggling to become successful? The speaker went on to prove that “People don’t buy what you SELL, instead they want to believe what YOU BELIEVE.” In other words, you need to make your audience believe in what you believe about the products you are selling.
In the context of blogging, your product is your blog content. Logically, for you to become a successful blogger, you need to believe in what you say to your audience. It must be a clearcut yes on every piece of content that you add to your blog. I don’t know how, but if you don’t believe in what you write, that usually shows in your writing. You may do hours of research to produce a highly informational article; but at the end of the day the success of that article lays upon how you regard yourself in providing that content to your audience. Simple as that.
Everyone has their own unique style of writing. You too have one, even if you’re unaware of it. But what is the essential ingredient that shapes the writing style of successful bloggers which in turn influences the majority of readers? The answer is obvious. The secret is that you must be aware of your level of self esteem.
Take a look at your role models for sec. Who you want to become in 1, 2 or 5 years time. You regard them very highly because they themselves regard them very highly. They are on the top and have achieved what they’ve achieved because they believe they are the best! All you have to do is replace “they” with “you” in the previous sentence.
I don’t care what everybody else is saying about becoming successful online. But I know this much. If you believe you are the best in your niche and believe in producing the best, you will no doubt be one of the best in whatever you do. Just do it!
