The approval precedes the acquisition.
Any success you want to experience will only multiply if you let go of what needs to be released. I will give you an example. A few months ago I built up a large following at Quora. I also asked questions as a member of the partner program. Yes; I made a coin through the canal. Good business. But months ago I felt a strong urge to completely close my Quora account. I can't say exactly why, except that it didn't seem like a way to help me live my dreams. It was fun to work with Quora for a while. But it has not been fun for 2-3 months.
I have closed my account. Closed. 500,000 plus response calls? Path. Revenue from the affiliate program? Path. But I had to publish these things to accelerate my blogging growth. Aspects of my blogging campaign immediately picked up speed because I let go of the energetic weight that was holding me back. I let go to grow. However, letting go didn't feel pleasant, pleasant, or seamless. I feared losing money. Why close a blogging revenue stream? Why let go of these over 500,000 response views? Why? Letting go releases the energetic anchor that is preventing you from expanding your blog.
I felt lighter when I closed my Quora account. If I felt lighter, I could be more productive. When I was more productive, certain elements of my blogging campaign grew. Like magic. But it's not really magical. Letting go simply triggers old, worn-out patterns of thinking, feeling, acting and owning that hold you back. When you let go of these energetic anchors, you can drive new, refreshing, liberating thoughts, feelings and actions and achieve new, liberating and entertaining blog results.
What do you need to let go of now? Resist posting things on your blog? How about this outdated design? Do you need to buy a new, current, professional looking topic? Do you need to publish your blog to a large number of Facebook groups to make room for an intelligent, abundant, and effective blogging campaign for guests? We always get nudges to let go. But surrendering through the publishing process is a little too scary for any blogger to seriously think about. I still object to the release, even after watching how incredible the release has become for me over the years.
Nobody grows by sticking to blogging elements that are worn out for a long time. My blog looks like a different creature than 6 years ago. Why? I have developed further. I let go. I became clearer. For a while, my blogging homepage consisted of links to my over 100 eBooks. This look had to go because I had to publish this design to make room for my current, branded, clear blogging design.
All changes change the moment you let go, but only you decide what needs to go. I'm nudging you in the right direction. You make the final decision to release worn ideas, people, circumstances, thoughts, feelings, actions or possessions. Quite a list, right? I know posting blogging elements feels uncomfortable. For fear of losing traffic and income, cling to 5 ads in your sidebar. But less is more. Fewer sidebar ads tend to increase clicks because readers focus on a few calls to action rather than being distracted by a large number of calls that direct their attention in far too many directions.
Make a list of the things that need to be done today. Be ruthless. Chop up your blog to get a clean, clear blog design. Readers value clarity. Readers love the publication. But you have to find out what has to go … then you have to throw it away.
