With blogging you can make a million dollars a year.
That’s as much as the lottery would pay you if you matched 6 numbers on a single ticket for one of the baseline jackpots of 40 million dollars.
And just think, if you want that extra hour of blogging because you want to take massive action in the direction of your dream, you are working by putting hours and hours into the action of typing. Of creating art. Of creating business. Of staying consistent. I’ve been reading some interesting books and they talk a lot about feelings.
Neville Goddard was the main inspiration, in my opinion, for Wayne Dyer’s book “Wishes Fulfilled”. Neville’s teachings are based around imagination and feeling, and God, which is documented in the book I’m loving reading right now “Wishes Fulfilled.

In it he says a lot about how you should think that you’re God, because that’s what Jesus taught us to do. “The kingdom of God is within” He said. Dyer says that when you believe you are God, you can live the life you want to live. That’s my short and skinny of it. That’s just to put it into my own words.
To be honest I’ve been putting what I’ve been reading in “Wishes Fulfilled” into action in my thoughts. I’ve been thinking thoughts about how “I am Love” and sometimes “I am God” and sometimes “I am a problogger”. And sometimes “I am healthy wealthy and wise”. Dyer says that by using the “I Am” which is what God said to Moses in the burning bush “I am that I Am. Dyer says to use your I am’s with responsibility to the loving light that you are. I far prefer writing about this than writing about what I would do with the money when I win the lottery. Or just visualizing it, which is what I would do often instead of writing.
There’s been a few things that have set me off on this path of evolution to love blogging. One being Schizophrenia, one being personal development, and one being just blogging itself. This is what I have come to discover about my blog and my business. What I’ve really been doing though is imagining and feeling like I’m healthy, wealthy, happy, and wise.
Here’s a sample of the affirmations:
I am healthy.
I am wealthy.
I am wise.
I am a problogger.
I am a lottery winner (just in case)
I am happy.
I am fulfilled.
I am Love.
All things can be done with God.
I am healed.
These are just a few of the affirmations I use everyday. When it comes to visualization time these days, I visualize and feel what it feels like to be healthy, wealthy, and wise, and Happy!
When your a schizophrenic and the voices tell you “YOUR NOT!” when you affirm your healthy you have to learn to embrace your superpower. That superpower is to be the ultimate guardian of your imagination and your feelings. There is a large “NO INTRUDERS!” sign on the door of your consciousness. No one else is allowed into your mind. Not even the voices that come from it.
When they shout “YOUR NOT!” at me I have several tools that I would like to share with you on how a schizophrenic, or anyone else for that matter who has their own self doubts, could harness the power of their own thinking, and use it to benefit their lives.
When you have a voice, or a thought if your normal, that tells you your not healthy I recommend you say one word. That word is”nonsense”.
There are other words you could use, and I will mention some here, but think about nonsense for a moment. Imagine what would happen if when you had a self doubt about whether you could do something or not you just repeated the word nonsense when the thought, image or feeling came up, what would happen next?
Maybe you would ask yourself the question, “How do I benefit from this?” or maybe, if your proclaiming to your mind and body that you are indeed “Love” by saying “I AM LOVE” maybe you would hear a new voice, or have a new thought, that was empowering.
To be honest I’m now drawing a blank on what other words you could use to combat self doubt, but in my mind I no doubt use them. “Nonsense” is just my favorite and is also used by others to combat their own inner negativity.
This is a little about all three things, the schizophrenia, personal development, and blogging. That’s my story, and it’s one of beauty and magnificence.
This is what I’m really really good at, and if your thinking about starting a blog, rest easy, because your going to be nothing when you start. You’ll be an unheard of nobody, like everybody else who started with nothing and got everything. This is why I like blogging so much better than playing the lottery. You can put hours and hours of typing (actually producing something, instead of just visualizing your hours away) about things you really care about in your life. Like helping people, or serving others. You could be writing about how you value everyone like they are a family member, and just do your best to be of service to people. If you put the hours in, in a God ordained profession, success will come without fail. God cannot fail. You just have to find your calling. When you think blogging is your calling, I’m your man.
If your thinking that I said I was going to win a massive jackpot and then changed my mind to being a problogger, then you might be thinking I’ll have about as much success getting a million dollars a year blogging as I would at matching 6 numbers on a 40 million dollar jackpot. To that I would say nonsense.
Switching my affirmations from lottery winner to professional blogger is a wise decision because I’m don’t spend my all my free time visualizing a lottery win. Instead I’m writing and I find that to be a more productive activity than visualization alone. That settles that objection, what’s next?
I don’t think there is anything next. There’s no downside to switching your thinking from being a lottery winner to being a professional blogger. A problogger. The I am that I am that God said he was. The manifesting of problogging.
” I am a problogger.”
What’s the harm in saying that to yourself as you visualize? And try to feel what it feels like to be a problogger. Feel the feelings of being a problogger. They say that your destiny is in your feelings. I would say the benefit of spending all that time visualizing and feeling like a lottery winner did me good (even though I didn’t win a big jackpot) because it taught me how to visualize, and how to feel good. I can easily use my powers to visualize and feel what it’s like to be a problogger to manifest money using my blog. Really, to Earn money off my blog. When your putting hours and hours into it, your earning it. But I would say that mastery of blogging is a worthwhile pursuit even if you don’t get paid for it.
I believe that if you would do it even if you didn’t get paid, you’ll get better results. Sure, we can work to get paid, but we do it for much more than the money. That’s why blogging is superior to winning the lottery. With the lottery you don’t get the connections with other people in a work related way. You do with blogging. And once you start to build your email list, you’ll be growing and it’s never going to stop. You’ll always be bigger today than you we’re yesterday.
The downside is there’s no immediate payoff.
That said, with blogging, a lot of experts will tell you that you can start to earn money from it by the six month mark. I was in a network marketing company that trained their people to do it in 90 days. It can be fast!
That would definitely entail a lot of hours, work ethic, wisdom, and health. You don’t need a lot of money to start a blog so I don’t include money in that list. Although you can pay big like I did and join a network marketing company for $5,000 and get their “masters course”. Now instead of network marketing, blogging has chosen me and I’ve chosen it, so there’s no need to buy all the expensive products.
Now if you had an email list of 2,000 buyers then it might make sense to join the $5,000 opportunity. You could stand to earn a lot of money with your resources. But just starting, with no blog, no traffic, no comments, and no list I would recommend you just buy the domain, the hosting, and the email list and get to writing. That’s how the big people did it, they had the blog first, and then they bought the expensive product they could re sell. They already had a list of buyers!
Just think how exciting that first sale is going to be. It is going to feel like you won the jackpot. Just think how much more your capable of and take action. Maybe that action is to read on and then join my email list. Maybe that action is to ask yourself the question “what does it feel like to be a problogger?”. Is that action to get your own blog and start on your own 90 journey to results? Is that action to write your first blog post or leave your first long comment on someone else’s blog? Is that action to start your email list? Whatever it is, take action.
Put hours and hours into the writing. You’ll be spending more time taking action than you could ever visualize with presence of mind for. At a certain point with visualization you’re just sitting there daydreaming or in misery that you can’t do anything else to get what you want. That is again why the action of blogging is better than the action of playing to win the lottery.
And as I started with in the beginning, I believe it is possible to earn a million dollars a year off of one’s blog. Sure that’s a big goal, but you can’t get big without big goals. Besides even if you fall short you’ll still have made SOME money off your blog, and some is better than none. I shot for a jackpot win and didn’t get it, but I did win $50 off of a dollar scratch off ticket. I imagine your chances of making a lot more than $50 off blogging are better than making it off playing the lottery. And if you do have the big goal you have the potential to earn as much as you could win.
This is why blogging is better than playing the lottery.
I hope this has inspired you to blog harder than you play the lottery. I know the change has been good for me and I hope that this serves you as well.
