Overcoming adversity lessons from the Phoenix

If anyone ever asks me what my spirit animal is, it’s the Phoenix.

This Greek mythological fire bird tells the most wonderful life story ever. It is said that there is only one Phoenix at a time in the world and it lives in a 500-year cycle. Nearing the end of its life cycle, the majestic bird gathers cassia barks, frankincense and myrrh, flies up to the highest point in the world and builds a nest out of the fragrant twigs, barks, and spices.

Then, the Phoenix sings the most beautiful song the world ever heard and it ignites itself into a blazing fire. Out of the ashes, a new young Phoenix emerges.

So, you’re thinking about starting a blog. You’ve seen the pictures of people working on a laptop by the beach. One month they are sipping coconuts by the beach in Bali and the next month they are riding elephants in Thailand. They seem to be living the life – traveling the world while working remotely.

You want the lifestyle. You want to be free from your 9-to-5 job and free from dealing with traffic jam every day.

Or maybe you are a stay-at-home mom who just wants to figure out how to earn money online so you can contribute to the family’s finances.

Whatever your situation is, blogging seems to be the solution. You’ve read about people earning 6-figure income with their blogs. Why can’t you get a slice of that pie?

7 Lessons Learned From My First Failed Blog

Lessons I learned from my first failed blog

I ditched my first blog.

Yes, there I said it.

Well, it wasn’t really intentionally. It just seemed like the right course of action at the moment. I had my first blog Making LOL for a year. I went through a really rough time in my life and I had to figure out a new career path. I gave blogging a year to see if I could make anything out of it.

It was a REALLY steep learning curve. I had never created a website before and I wasn’t active on social media platforms other than posting hiking pictures on my Facebook account. Looking back, I was kind of proud of what I had put out and I met new friends in the blogging world.
