There are many habits and practices that affect our abilities to truly succeed in blogging. For many of our bad habits, we are not aware of them until someone points them out to us or we see others complain about them.

How can we not be obsessed with numbers?
Though blogging â€œgurusâ€ assure us that statistics are not the only barometer to measure success, they do indeed tell a story.
After all, to not be â€œstokedâ€ about stats contradicts our very way of life.
Numbers have always had significance in our culture and society.
Think about it.
Everybody knows that a woman whoâ€™s rated a â€œ10â€ is considered pretty hot stuff.
While Friday the â€œ13thâ€ is considered unlucky.
When we want to keep people in the know, we give them the â€œ4-1-1.â€
I.Q. numbers are said to reflect our intellect,and we have 9-digit S.S. #s
to uniquely identify us.
Even the number of â€œtweetsâ€ now defines the elite.

I’m a big fan of learning from successes. A general piece of advice in many fields including blogging is that you can learn a lot from failures, but I think examining the things that have worked is a much better use of your time. Failures just teach you what not to do, but then you’re still stuck on the next step. After a failure, how do know if your next idea will work?
But successes are different. By nature, they give you much more insight in the things you need to be doing.
Also, analyzing your successes and focusing on them often brings a renewed sense of hope and motivation. You become more motivated because you won’t have to do something that’s totally new. Change is hard for us humans. Trying new things can be intimidating since we’re unsure if they will succeed.
But if we examine something we done ourselves that was successful, we’ll be more than willing to do it again. And we become more hopeful, because we’ve actually already done the task. We don’t have to worry whether or not we have the ability to do it.
