I often read how hyper successful, pro bloggers thought and acted like a pro well before becoming a pro.
I once saw a few 7 and 8 figure bloggers explain how they blogged frequently – some publishing 2-3 posts daily – before hitting it big, despite not seeing a few hundred bucks during their first year of blogging.
How did these folks think like a pro before becoming a pro blogger?
Before we dive into the tips, you need to know why it’s important to think like a pro before becoming a pro. Well guys; success flows from within. Or, as within, so without. Before you see success you need to think, feel and act like a success, because all results simply mirror back your dominant belief system.
Bloggers who go full time position themselves to become full time bloggers by thinking like, feeling like, and acting like, a pro. Naturally, this crowd sees pro results, over the long haul.
While most bloggers are selling sponsored posts for a piddly $5 you charge $1000. In time, while they make peanuts and remain amateur bloggers, you align with a more serious, prospering crowd, moving up in circles, landing big ticket business clients and making a full time income through blogging.
1: Develop a Vision of Your Dream Life
Bloggers win by having a vision of their dream life.
If you see your dreams, you will think and act like the pro blogger who lives those dreams.
Add details to your vision to make it come alive. See, smell and taste your vision. Blogging gets easier if you have a vision because obstacles will not trip you up, with a vision in mind. Plus, it gets easier to think and act like a pro even if you have no money or get little blog traffic, in the moment.
2: Surround Yourself With Pro Bloggers
Pro bloggers teach you posture. Pros energize you. Pros pick you up, when you stumble.
Pros teach you how to think, feel and act like a pro blogger, well before you become a pro blogger.
Top bloggers taught me to be patient, to trust in the process, and not to panic if my results are not taking off. I also learned from pros to not lower my prices, but to raise my prices as my skills improved and as I gained experience. In many cases, I did not make more money blogging until I raised my prices. Posture.

3: Do Uncomfortable But Freeing Things
See the above tip; raising prices often feels uncomfortable until you really think like a posturing, professional blogger. But pros usually raise prices well before they become professional bloggers to build posture, to raise the bar, and to align with a more prospering readership.
Do uncomfortable but freeing things. Write your first eBook to brand yourself effectively. Begin guest posting to think like a leveraging, pro blogger. Be the person before becoming the person. Leave your comfort zone. Grow into becoming a pro blogger.
4: Trust Your Intuition
Thinking like a pro blogger requires you to trust your intuition.
Let’s face it; sometimes, everything you do blogging-wise on the ride to going full time will not make sense to most bloggers, or people, for that matter. People who live solely by logic work for other people. People who follow their intuition create empires.
Trust your gut. Zig, while humanity zags. Think like a pro before you become a pro while most other bloggers think like amateurs and never become professionals.
5: See Money Spent on Your Blog as an Investment Not Loss
Amateur bloggers see money spent on blogging as money lost because they think like losers.
Aspiring pro bloggers see money spent as money invested because they know they will make more and more money from their investment; this crowd thinks like winners and becomes pro bloggers.
Professionals in virtually all niches had to invest money well before they became pros. Blogging is no different.
You Can Do it
You can and will become a pro blogger.
Think like a pro. Position yourself to succeed.
As within, so without.
