“Be the change you want to see in the world”
That’s a very powerful quote by Mahatma Gandhi. How often you meet people who lie to you or to others? After a while is int it easy to spot these lies?
Well, blogging is a tool by which you express yourself to the world. It could be in the form of text, video, audio or any other. The thing is. when you are honest, your reach increases.

Staying honest start from not lying to yourself. For example, if you say to yourself that you would wake up in the morning with alarm, you do that. There will be no more 5 minutes or 10 more minutes of extra sleep. If you say that you would get something done; you would do that. This means saying no to many unwanted things & becoming true to yourself. This forms the foundation of making you a better person too.

Do you remember how you used to become at exams time? You forget about everything else but the exams. Dedication & focus is the key ingredients for becomin successful in anything in your life. For the next 3-4 months forget everything else in your life. Have a dedication like a monk & focus solely on your blog. Learn, Practice, Implement, Improvise. Give 4 months of your dedicated time & I promise your blog would be making enough to help you live a decent life. This applies to anyone who doesn’t even know anything about blogging or good at writing.

It doesn’t require you to leave everything behind but what it requires is your full dedication, honesty & mindset to learn. Are you ready to lay the foundation of your success in blogging?
