And have you always want to live the live that you want – a life of freedom, fun and fulfillment? I so much love the word “Leverage” that is – ability to doing more with less and one of the best leverage we can use in life is the leverage of having a mentor, a mentor or guide who has walk the path we dream of walking and have been successful and if life has been made simple today – mentors are everywhere and you don’t need to see them before you learn from them, all you need is to read their blogs, listen to their podcasts or watch their videos to draw inspiration and motivation from their life of exploit. These are the go to guys in their respective field of life – business, writing, blogging, self-development etc. and personally in 2 years, I have learn more from them than I have ever learn from my 5 years of university education (school really sucks and I am happy to say that and if you agree then Tweet this).In short, they are living example of real mentors to learn from if you want to live the kind of fulfilled life they are living now while having the freedom to have lot of fun while doing what they love to do.

My readers, through my blog, receive the overflow of my own personal search on personal development. As part of my success it is in my nature to not keep my discoveries to myself - but to in fact share everything that I learn with those who have been brought across my path. Keys to success? Consistency. Positivity. Determination. Practice through the continual crafting of my skill of communication. I write at least 6 days a week - in one form or another. And also by opening up on opportunity for other burgeoning writers and introducing them, through the platform of my blog, to my global audience.

When you relentlessly pursuit something, you transform the problem, and yourself in the process. If I were to break that down further, it really comes down to three things: 1. Work a problem that you care about deeply that impacts other people. This amplifies your impact and lights your contribution on fire. Impacting other people will keep you going. 2. Don't start from scratch. Find models and examples to learn from. ("Stand on the shoulders of giants.") 3. Learn and improve. Stay relentless in your effort, and use feedback to shape your efforts. Use your toughest critics for your most insightful feedback. If you aren't working a problem that makes your soul sing, then dig deeper.

Success, to me, is not a destination but a constant process. To me, how I pursue something matters just as much as the end result/s I'm going for. Oftentimes the end results are a surprise anyway! Stick with it, whatever you are doing. Focus on how you can be most helpful to others and all else will follow. When you're unsure of where to go next, lean in. Get quiet. Give yourself time to figure things out. And just keep putting one foot in front of the other.

When you change your approach from "what can I get from others?" to "what can I give to others?" you will find much greater success. I have been very fortunate - I had the greater opportunity to work as a Writer in the Clinton White House at age 23, to work for Steven Spielberg's movie studio, DreamWorks, SKG, and as a speechwriter to the Governor of California, and now to own my own business helping entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams. I think the reason I've been successful is because I've always focused on trying to help others in any way I can first, and to worry about what benefits I can get for myself later. So my advice to others is to look at your own skills and abilities and ask how you can be most useful to the people you know already, and to focus on that. If you use that approach, you'll find great success.

I've painstakingly built my blog audience one by one, one step at a time, through a thousand different steps along the way. Each step, from writing press releases, to appearing on the media, to writing guest posts, to sharing my best content, to opening up on the most intimate details of my life, have all contributed to building my blog to where it is today. If you were to ask me to narrow down the one thing that has been most instrumental to building my blog though, I would say it has to be putting my best content out there to help others to grow. I have never held back on sharing my personal vulnerabilities, insecurities, and issues, ranging from growing up in an angry household, to having a poor body image in the past, to being insecure of my looks before. While others may be petrified at letting people know about their problems, I don't as I believe my problems serve as important learning lessons for others to grow. This is also the reason why readers return to my blog again and again, as it's where they get an authentic sharing and earnest voice speaking to them. For those serious about building a successful blog, I have created a six- week Blogging Success Program after much request from my readers, where I share my best strategies on how I built my audience from 0 to over a million page views in less than three years.

And I feel motivated to persevere through some of the difficult aspects of the work because I love what I’m doing so much. I truly believe passion is a necessary ingredient for success. Yes, you can make money without it and be a success in the eyes of others. But for me, success means living authentically and joyfully, fully engaged in my work and life.

It's something we have when we're young, but we lose over the years. And though it's possible to get it back, it's tougher the older and more removed from it we get. This is something that's always guided me, and I would encourage anyone who's feeling stuck or underachieving or uninspired to chase the things that make their jaws drop and eyes go wide with wonder. Without that kind of propellant, it can be exhausting and incredibly difficult to build up the momentum you need to do what needs to be done.

Material things, recognition, and job titles only mattered. But it occurred to me that success is just a word until we apply meaning, and that meaning is incredibly and uniquely individual. It wasn't until I realized what was important to me, such as having a loving relationship with my beloved Emily, becoming a father, and helping others that I care deeply about, that I can truly say I found success. Material things, popularity, and job titles can make life fun but they're hollow and fleeting. Getting in rapport with myself and pursuing that which is most uniquely me is my true secret to success.

I guess my advice for people would be to stop searching for the magic bullet or formula because it doesn't' exist. I've spent almost 4 years building BlogcastFM. It hasn't come without its struggles. I've made less money than many of my peers. I've made sacrifices that other people wouldn't. But I've never stopped believing in the value of what I do. At the end of the day it's all about creating value. If people who come in contact with you are made better off for having been a part of your journey, you win. That's the best possible way to measure your success. So I guess you could say the secret of success is that making an impact is my number one motive.

When I was still new to blogging, I blogged for almost a year before making a cent from my blog and during this period I spent an average of 8 – 10 hours working on my blog and learning how things work. I think what helped me succeed isn't what I know, but my determination not to give up even when things weren't going my way.

You can only read blogs offering advice on how to earn money, get traffic, etc for so long before you've gotta get out there and try something. For me as I've tried more and more things - and failing at most - I've been able to rack up more successes by sheer effort and determination to succeed.

Starting a blog, website, or business is a difficult thing. It usually takes months if not a couple years to gain significant traction and most people don't have the patience.

I've had plenty of ups and downs, but I always kept writing and kept pursuing my goal of working for myself. I don't know if you can call that a secret, but it's the reason I'm able to keep doing what I'm doing You Shouldn't Miss These From Sean: The Very First Step to Building a Lifestyle Business Around a Hobby Build a Business, Live Anywhere, Achieve Freedom (Best of L180) How to Build Your First Online Asset in 48 Hours Follow Sean On Twitter And Don’t Forget To Check What He is Up To At SeanOgle.Com Sean Ogle Location 180

I’m a writer, author and blogging addict and a proud founder of The Savvy Indie and Free Life Pursuit among many successful and unsuccessful blogs online. I have always been an entrepreneur right since my university day with a knack for online marketing having tried lot of things, many of which failed and I moved on while some have been hugely rewarding and successful – such is just the life of not giving up on what you want and love. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science but I hardly count it as anything worthwhile because I only spend 5 years in the university but with no business at all been in school at the first place. If you ask -me, School sucks and I wish I’m a dropout! – Just don’t let my Mum hear that….lol Rather than going to school to waste my time and money with lots of energy studying what I have never find any use for after leaving school in 2008,I opt to live a life of my own, a life of chasing freedom, fun and fulfillment About Me
