Fast Inspiration For Blog Content
Have you ever needed fast inspiration for blog content because you just weren’t feeling creative or had no time to sit down and think? I have on many occasions! This blog post is a good example.
If truth be told, I have a lot to do this week and don’t have time to think about a blog post. I’m leaving for vacation again and I don’t want to spend but a few minutes to get a good value based piece of content out to my readers.
Rather than feeling overwhelmed and cranky or not doing a blog at all, I pulled out a tried and true hack for fast inspiration and content. It’s my #1 best and coolest “fast inspiration for blog content” hack.
But then I thought, “Hey, rather than DOING the hack, TEACH the hack.” So here it is.
Find a quote and talk about it.
Here’s how to do that.
Head over to Google and search for quotes. Make sure the quote you chose is relevant to your niche audience. My readers are home based business entrepreneurs so the quotes, statements, thoughts, etc. that I share has to be relevant to them. So for me, I’m looking for any of these:
- Inspirational quotes.
- Motivational quotes.
- Success quotes.
- Leadership quotes
You can even search by your favorite mentor, author, leader, person of influence, etc. Here’s a few of my favorites.
- Brian Tracy
- Jim Rohn
- Dan Kennedy
- Oprah Winfrey
- Bob Proctor
- Tony Robbins
- Dale Carnegie
- Robert Kiyosaki
Don’t forget about your favorite athletes. Here’s a quote from LeBron James. I chose a basketball image to put his quote on.
Here’s how fast and easy this hack is:
1) Find your favorite quote, statement, thought, etc.
2) Find a picture that you like to put that quote on to create a visual. I recommend NOT copying a photo off the internet because of copyright laws. Here’s a great process to use that keeps you out of trouble.
a) Go to pixabay.com. It’s free. Find an image and download it to your computer.
b) Open up Canva.com. It’s free.
c) Upload your image into Canva and add your quote to it.
d) Download your new image to your computer.
e) Upload it to your blog.
3) Write a little content around the quote, statement or thought you selected to expound on it and share your own thoughts and experiences.
And ….you’re DONE!
Fast Inspiration For Blog Content Example
In the above LeBron James example, you already saw the quote and the picture I selected and created using Pixabay and Canva. Next would be to write my thoughts and input.
I would title my blog post something like, “How To Succeed Through Criticism“
I would write something like this.
How To Succeed Through Criticism
We all know that criticism can come packaged to ways. One to tear down and one to build up.
The problem I see with many home based business owners is they are not putting themselves in the right mindset to receive either of these and it causes them to quit.
Let me explain.
Criticism to build up:
Personal development is a key to winning. It teaches you how to grow up an entrepreneur. One of those teachings is on receiving constructive and permission based criticism to help you. I like to rephrase this as “feedback” and “coaching”.
Anytime I have the opportunity to have someone who is where I want to be take a look at what I’m doing, I give full permission for him/her to tell me the truth about what they observe and provide their criticism, feedback, and coaching to help me grow.
I always want to be growing, learning, and discovering.
Because of this, I love criticism, when taken in a way that helps me grow.
Pay Attention To Who Your Going To Take Criticism From.
Jim Rohn quote is “You’re the average of the 5 people you spend your time with.“
This is will both mentors who are where you want to go as well as your personal close friends. Chose wisely~
Criticism to tear down:
When someone criticizes you for the work you’re doing, the goals you’re trying to achieve and the dreams you have, please recognize that as THEIR problem, not yours.
You’ve got to learn to let it roll off and not receive the hurtful remarks and put downs. Again, personal development will save the day because it teaches you how to grow up as an entrepreneur and through that process, you’ll learn that unwelcomed meanness is poison to your goals and kills your dreams and how to handle it.
Recognize a few things about mean ole’ criticism:
1) Unless they have already accomplished what you are trying to do, (which they will not have), you have no business listening to them anyway. I’m always amazed when someone tells me they have to check with their friends before joining a business opportunity when their friends are as broke as they are.
2) They can’t possibly understand what you’re trying to do because it’s not their dream. People who “don’t get” why anyone would want to have a home based business isn’t capable of relating or understanding. The natural response then is for them to just say, “What the heck are you doing?!” Ignore it!
3) They may be fearful that if you succeed, you won’t want to hang around them anymore. I wrote an article a long time ago on this subject. You can read it here.
4) They have have tried at some point in their life to succeed in a home based business but they allowed their fears and insecurities to get in the way. Rather than admit they have a fear based problem, they cry “scam!”. It”s not a scam. It’s their unwillingness to look in the mirror to see the problem.
There’s a lot of reasons why someone would be mean. Brush it off. If they keep at it, make a decision about your relationship with them. You may have to walk away.
Last point about this kind of criticism is that you can take that as fuel to propel yourself forward. I love this quote…
‘Kill them with success and bury them with a smile.”
You just go do your thing and keep smiling. You’ll win in the end. It doesn’t matter what they throw at you, you know who you are and where you’re going.
Honor your commitment to achieve your goals.
So that’s about it.
