Why are you blogging? Is it simply to wile away time, or to make some impacts in the world?
Are you on a mission with your blog? How much do you believe in this mission? Do you even believe in it at all?
Hardly would you succeed at anything you do – including blogging – if you don’t believe in it.
In the world of blogging, you may have a few things going for you. There are also many odds that may be against you.
And except you have a firm belief in what you are doing, you would give up before you know it.
According to John Maxwell, “Only with a belief in yourself will you be able to reach your potential.” And having a belief in your mission will empower, encourage and enlarge you (paraphrased).
I believe that you can enjoy the same benefits – and more – if you would have confidence in what you are doing as a blogger.
With a belief in your blog’s mission you can achieve many benefits…
In this post, I will offer you four simple benefits you will enjoy if you have a firm belief in your blogging mission:
#1. You will be empowered
Having a firm belief in your blogging mission, will strengthen your ability to achieve the goals you have set for your blog.
Your first task is to specify your blog’s mission. Your second is to believe in it and then you have to run with it.
If you don’t believe in your blog’s mission, you will not be empowered to achieve it.
Lack of belief is one of the reasons people fail in life.
Similarly, many blogs have failed because their writers did not believe firmly in what they were doing. As a result they became incapacitated, felt hollow and gave up.
Empower yourself, show a firm belief in the reason you are blogging.
#2. You will be encouraged
In your blogging journey, you will face discouragement at some points. When that happens, quitting becomes a beckoning alternative.
But you don’t have to take that option, if you have a firm belief in your blog’s mission. You can overcome the challenges and achieve your goals…
You may not gain wide readership at the beginning. You will be negatively criticised to a breaking point.
Internet trolls will come after you in the comment section of your posts. You may even experience the so-called writer’s block…
And friends and family may not give you the kind of support you would expect.
If any of these things happen to you, the only thing that will encourage you not to take down the blog will be your firm belief in your blog’s mission.
Without that, you may have lost the battle before it got started. So my friend, be encouraged by believing strongly in your blog’s mission.
#3. You will be enlarged
Having a firm belief in your blog’s mission has a way of enlarging you.
By that I don’t mean that your body mass will increase. But that it will enable you to accomplish more.
There are many possibilities that may never be unlocked to you if you are not in your mind fully committed to your blog’s mission.
Belief in your blog and explore the opportunities it brings. That’s one way you grow and enlarge.
Sooner or later, you would find yourself accomplishing things you once thought impossible.
#4. Your expectations will be deepened.
If your blog has a purpose you so much believe in, it will rub off on your expectations for the blog.
Don’t run a blog without a propose. It doesn’t make sense to do so.
For example, some people say they started their blog because they just wanted to write, not caring whether someone reads it or not. I am not like that and I hope you are not too.
I am not saying starting a blog as a writing outlet is not okay. I am saying you should expect to be be read as well.
If you belief you have something to offer on your blog, then it is normal to expect people to discover your blog, read it and give you feedback.
A good blog without readers is like a beautiful girl in the dark: no one knows she is there.
I cannot begin to explain here what you should expect in your blog. Let your heart and your blog mission guide you.
What I can assure you is that the more confidence you have in what you are doing, the more you are psychologically empowered and encouraged to continue doing it…
The more you grow and enlarge in the process, the more your expectations are deepened. And hopefully the more positive results you will achieve.
Having a belief in your blog’s mission will help you accomplish more. It will empower you, encourage you, enlarge you and even deepen your expectations.
In what other ways has your belief in your blog’s mission been of help to you?
