One of the best ways to make money nowadays is to become a blogger. I discovered this great opportunity last November 2007 and I must say, it’s been very fruitful. It has become a reliable source of income and more importantly, it provided a productive avenue for my passion in writing.
There are so many ways to make money online. As a newbie, I was immediately bombarded with so much information and trying to learn all of them gave me countless sleepless nights. Eventually, it has become unhealthy for me and that’s when I realized that if I wanted to succeed in this endeavor, I need to focus on one income stream at a time.
I decided to concentrate my efforts first on improving my Google Adsense income. So I scoured the internet for resources and read numerous articles about it during my free time. Along the process, I discovered the single winning formula for Adsense success: Get traffic and optimize ads.
Search engine and contextual advertisement optimization is a very extensive topic. There are so many bloggers who write about them and if you don’t know where to start, I recommend that you first learn the lessons of Darren, Maki and Joel. These three people have been my most influential resources when it comes to blogging. Dig up their blog archives and you’ll find countless gems of information that will help you become a successful blogger.
What I can teach you today, however, is something that has successfully helped me in making money, not just online but in real life as well. It’s such a simple concept and I’m sure you know what it is already. Yes, it’s the Law of Attraction.
I will now tell you my Adsense story and teach you how the Law of Attraction helped me improve my Google Adsense earnings. Let us start by taking a peek at my computer wallpaper.
This is the upper right corner of my desktop. At the top, it says, “Let’s feel good today…” If I were to summarize what the law of attraction is all about, it would simply be learning how to feel good. Yes, if you want good things to come into your life, you only need to feel good about yourself.
That’s why I created this vision board on my laptop. I put several 125 x 125 boxes and filled it with photos and statements that makes me feel good. As you can see, I have pictures of a lovely coffee shop near my place and a photo of me and my friends playing poi at the beach last summer. Both scenes remind and give me feel good memories.
Beside them are statements which I want to attract – currently, I’m aspiring to earn $10 a day from Google Adsense and raise my net worth to P500,000 – among other personal aspirations. You’d probably notice that they’re written in the present tense. These things have not yet happened but stating them as if they already did makes me feel good. And you already know what happens if you feel good, the law of attraction will call out to the universe and make it come true. 😀
I cannot tell you a scientific explanation why this works, it simply does. Perhaps the only acceptable reason why it’s effective is that when we feel good, we become more eager to learn and work. When we think positively, we become more creative and motivated to succeed. What do you think?
And so that’s how I was able to grow my Adsense income. Aside from performing search engine optimization and studying effective ad block design and placements, I used the law of attraction to inspire me to blog everyday. And once a statement on my vision board becomes a reality, I immediately replace it with a higher goal. Below are my past Google Adsense blocks that I’ve used before.
I hope that this story has made you feel good and inspired you to try incorporating the law of attraction into your life. If you’re a blogger, I hope that it has also motivated you to believe in yourself that you too, can find online success in Google Adsense.
