Internet and Blogging has a lot to do with my life so far. It started out of interest and then grew into something that took over me completely.
Right now, I have started to get offline a lot more, still the lessons I got from my life here will stay forever.
#1. If you quit when its Boring, then you are like everyone else
Blogging is not all that beautiful, you gotto accept that. It’s fun at the start, but you got to keep up your pace (even when you get nothing in return) to reach where you want to reach. Consistent effort (when put in the right way, refer second lesson) gives results.
Everyone likes to do things that interest him. And most things fascinate in the beginning. Most people quit when it starts to get boring. You will only be a Legend if you keep going even when it starts to get boring.
#2. Practice doesn’t makes Perfect – Work Smarter
Well, its common knowledge that if you keep putting effort and if you work really hard, you will be super awesome. This is B.S. I kept on blogging for whole two and half years before I learnt what I should be doing to get where I want.
Not Hard Work, but Smart Work makes all the difference. There are certain ways to do certain things. When you see one isn’t working, analyse it, find the fault and then correct it.
Practising wrong wont make you perfect, Practice perfection.
#3. If you can do it once, you can do it again and again
This is something that gives me a lot of confidence day after day. Since March 2009 I have been making sizeable chunks of money online, whether it be through Adsense, Affiliates or through Freelance Projects.
I have decided to never go for work and this decision has been criticized and pity-fied by my family and relatives. I didn’t go to any school to learn Blogging or PHP or whatever I know to do what I do now. If I can do it once, I can do it again and again.
Nice share Arun. 🙂 Hard work never fails.You can earn online without going to out for work, But tell clearly to your family that how you earning and it wont stop at any cause. Tell them in the way that they can understand it.
Cheer up. 🙂
he he, am not disheartened, you got me wrong then. My parents are just anxious they still stand beside me 🙂
oh. Sounds great. 🙂
Hey, a little personal question, hope you don’t mind. Why are you not so active on this blog these days, doing some other work?
Hey Namit, I have been travelling for a while, engaged with a Brand Promotion Activity. Glad you noticed 🙂
Arunetta, i too wanted to ask you the same…really missing you and your posts 🙁
I am not going anywhere, right around here. Thanks btw 🙂
Nice little post man… I would like to say a few words, but probably you already heard it from your family and relatives lol
LOL, you can stop right there 😛 I know what you are going to say. he he
Even i know the pros and cons of blogging.I would be happy if u continue to do blogging for rest of ur life.It will surely change in ur life dude…………..
If you quit when its Boring, then you are like everyone else .. Really Liked this 🙂
You decided not to go for work but Parents criticized that decision so, what you are doing at this moment of life? AFAIK you have completed Graduation.. So, what’s next? Higher Studies or continue what you are doing or will join some work?
Its easy for parents to push me to the RAT race, I am not gonna take it. I do have plans for higher studies, but not next year. Free Lancer for now 🙂
“If you can do it once, you can do it again and again”
Completely agree with that hypothesis, Arun. I’ve seen that approach being applied successfully in various spheres. So, more power to your efforts.
I have learned some things from my Blog for my life –
Be regular + Be Focused on Only one goal + Be Creative = Success
