What Blogging Limiting Beliefs Handcuff You?

Blogging Limiting Beliefs Handcuff I scanned Twitter today.

A travel blogger commented on how nobody reads travel blogs these days.

Not true. Plenty of folks read travel blogs these days. But she claimed how nobody reads travel blogs because nobody travels.

Knowing this, she in the next breath noted how people reaching out to her for advertising opportunities must be misinformed.

She literally ignored people willing to pay her money because she believed these advertisers were making a mistake. Huh?

Can you imagine turning down advertising money due to the sheer fact that you believe the advertisers have no clue how no one reads travel blogs now, because no one appears to be traveling? Madness. Imagine leaving blogging money on the table – that advertisers want to pay you – because you dismiss seemingly ignorant advertisers?

Think of it this way; people want to pay you to advertise on your blog. But because you believe nobody reads your blog anymore because nobody travels anymore, you turn down money. Again, sheer madness. But drilling even deeper, we once again see the damaging effect of another blogging limiting belief.

Blogging Limiting Beliefs: What Handcuffs Do You Need to Shed?

Limiting beliefs cripple bloggers in many ways. Peep the above example. Millions of people still read travel blogs because even though few travels now, we all know traveling down the road will be a common thing, again. But clinging to the limiting belief that no one reads travel blogs dismisses the millions reading travel blogs and the money advertisers want to pay you to advertise in front of those millions reading travel blogs.

Limiting beliefs eat into your traffic and profits. What’s the worst part? All limiting beliefs begin and end in your mind. In a split second, you close your mind to possibility, ignore the opportunity and perpetuate your blogging struggles. Does that make sense? Of course not!

What limiters do you need to shed? Common blogging limiting beliefs include: only bloggers with big lists make money, only bloggers with big investing budgets make money, you need to be a fabulous writer to succeed with blogging, you need to dominate Google to succeed with blogging, and add about 1,001 other fear-based, limiting ideas, none of which are true.

Blogging Limiting Beliefs:  All Roads Lead to Rome

Have you heard the above saying? When folks say, “All roads lead to Rome”, it basically means how you can succeed blogging-wise in countless ways. WAY too many bloggers box themselves in with the two most common, flat out damaging, Google and list-building limiting beliefs. Bloggers foolishly believe dominating Google and building a huge list are 2 mandatory requirements for becoming a pro blogger.


I barely have a list. I barely drive Google traffic. But I do OK for myself. Why? I rarely handcuff myself with fear-based, limiting beliefs passed from blogger to blogger. All I do is help people generously by creating content, making friends and promoting my eBooks and courses. Trusting in self and in the blogging process, the skills, exposure and credibility increase I’ve experienced have helped me succeed.

All roads lead to Rome. Never box yourself in with limiting beliefs. Even though most successful bloggers follow the basics of being generous, creating content and building blogging friendships, endless strategies exist for being successful.

Never limit yourself with fear-based beliefs passed on by fear-filled, scared, non-creative bloggers. Success begins and ends in mind; just like all limiting beliefs. Stop agreeing with bloggers who always seem to limit themselves. Unless you want to limit yourself too.

Every time you cling to a limiting belief, you cut off one more possibility, one more opportunity, making your blogging job tougher. Does that sound smart? Why make life harder?

See the possibilities. Observe opportunities. Kick limiting beliefs to the cyber curb.

    • Yes S exactly. Treat it from a relaxed, detached energy, but be generous to knife through limiting beliefs.

    Hi Ryan,
    Nice article. I am sure that all fields have been affected by the spread of COVID-19, not only tourism. However, they have found solutions to work around the problem. Therefore, travel blogger should do the same. We can’t let this prevent us following our dreams.

  10. Nice positive article. We always underestimate our talents and abilities. You always have to ask yourself “why” is x,y,z is holding you back and if the reason or belief is really true ….

    Hello Ryan,
    It is a nice post!! Even I too heard that from my peer that the travel blogs are losing its demand and the readers have come down. But now the traffic on his site hits the top!!
    As you said utilizing all the opportunities will bring tons of possibilities and achievements ;-)

    Great points. I think one of the biggest limiting beliefs is expecting too much, too fast. When I start a new blog I expect to spend money and time making new articles for nearly a year before I earn more than “break-even” on my expenses.

    Far too many people work hard at it for six months, see little results and give up. Success takes time AND effort.
