Before you get started in building your Blog Revenue Engine, I think it's important to understand why you're here.
When working on such a thing it's very easy to lose sight of what you're trying to do.
Sometimes when working on this stuff you can find the work extremely tedious.
So tedious that you decide to take a long break.
This long break means your Engine isn't running very well unless all of the pieces are in place. If they aren't then you have an engine sitting around doing nothing.
You don't want that to happen.
So why are you doing this?
I don't mean the deep meaning kind of why are you doing this. I mean the surface level why.
For me, I stuck with this stuff for two reasons:
- I HATED having a job that I didn't control. Couldn't stand it. I tried, trust me but working for other people where I don't have full control over what I do just never felt right.
- I had bills to pay. Simple as that. This is also one of the things that might prevent you from truly succeeding with your Blog Revenue Engine.
Many of you taking this course have a 9-5 job and that 9-5 job pays the bills. Because of that, it's very easy to not feel stressed about having to get things done.
I can directly attribute my success to the fact that I had no money coming in and the bill collectors were knocking. When you're desperate to make something work you let go of your fears and concerns and you do what is necessary to get those bills paid.
If that meant writing 20 blog posts in 10 days then that's what I was going to do.
It's very easy to get caught up in the monotony of what you're about to do and just slow down or stop completely. 3 months later you'll come back saying "you're re-energized and ready to go" but guess what?
The same shit will happen again.
So again, why are you doing this?
An external why shouldn't be used as motivation because it just won't last.
"I want to make money" only works for so long before you realize there are some other things in life you want to do more than make money.
There has to be some pain that is causing you to want to do this.
You no longer want to feel that pain so that's why you're in this course.
If you can always remember how that pain feels, you'll find that you have no problem pushing ahead. Once you forget about that pain you tend to slack off.
I can wholeheartedly say that I've put all of the knowledge necessary to make this work in your hands.
This is all on you.
It's not about motivation. Motivation is for children. Children need to be motivated to do something.
I used to get up and drive 45 minutes in LA traffic to work, not because I was motivated to go work, but because I had to. I couldn't tell my wife that I just didn't feel like going in today to make money.
What you're about to do with your Blog Revenue Engine is no different.
Sometimes being your own boss means being the worst boss you've ever had.
