Many people dream about making money online as Bloggers or Internet Entrepreneurs.
They invest time and money into tools, training courses, and systems for making money online, which is a great place to start, but most people forget about one other thing that they can do to significantly increase their chances of making money online.
This one other thing that many people forget about is the process of engaging the Spiritual Law of “Giving and Receiving”.
I’ll be totally honest…
…when I first heard of this concept of “Give and You Shall Receive”, I thought it was a ‘marketing tactic’ employed by the Church to guilt people into donating 10% of their income to the Church.
I mean LOGICALLY speaking, if you want more of something, how can you GIVE it away when you don’t have it yet?
Meaning for example if I want more money, how do I give away more money, when I haven’t gotten more money yet?
This concept seemed paradoxical to me. 🙂
And to be honest, at first I kind of just dismissed it as hogwash.
But then a few of my mentors introduced me to a totally different way of looking at the concept that changed everything for me.
Give and You Shall Receive WAY MORE
The big mental shift that changed everything for me was the realization that when you GIVE something away, it doesn’t just come back to you in equal proportion.
When you GIVE something away, the Universe will flow it back to you in much greater quantities.
THAT is how the paradox is solved.
Although there’s no real way to measure it exactly (that I’ve found anyway), I usually like to think that whatever I give away will flow back to me at least TEN FOLD.
Sometimes it can be as much as one hundred fold, or one thousand fold, or even one million fold.
But thinking in terms of TEN fold is a safe and conservative way to look at it.
See, when I realized that the Universe will flow whatever you give away back to you by a factor of 10 TIMES, I started looking at this spiritual law totally differently.
And there was one other concept that fits in with this as well, which is that…
You Can Give and Receive Different Things
You don’t have to give away the same thing as you intend to receive.
Meaning, let’s say that you’re completely financially broke right now, without even a penny to your name.
And let’s say that you want to give away some money.
You can’t really “give away” any money if you don’t have it in the first place, right?
But what you CAN do is you can GIVE AWAY something else that you DO have, that is of “USE VALUE” to someone else.
Meaning for example, you could GIVE away value to someone in another form, such as helping someone with something.
The thing that you want to GET (ie. money) doesn’t have to be the same thing that you GIVE AWAY.
An awesome example of this is Blogging.
Whenever I write a Blog post, I’m essentially GIVING AWAY value to people who read my Blog posts.
Whenever I market and promote my Blog posts, I multiply the number of people my Blog posts reach and thus also multiply the amount of value I’m giving away.
So for example, let’s say that THIS Blog post provides the equivalent of $0.10 worth of value to each person who reads it.
Now, let’s say that I get 1,000 people to read this Blog post… well, that means that I’ve essentially given away the equivalent of $100 worth of value to the world by writing this post.
See what I mean?
And if we apply the TEN FOLD rule to this, that means that the Universe will “reward” me with at least $1,000 worth of “value” back in my life for doing this.
Now, does that mean that tomorrow I’m going to wake up and see $1,000 magically appear in front of me?
Well, no, probably not, but I do KNOW that if I in fact give away $100 worth of “Use Value” by writing a Blog post then I *WILL* receive $1,000 worth of value back from the Universe or more!
I’ve tested this in my life many times and it always seems to work out.
Whenever I go out there and just focus on giving away value to people, I find that the Universe showers me with ten times that value right back.
This is one of the biggest reasons I absolutely LOVE Blogging as a method of making money online, because it’s one of the least expensive ways of launching an online business and it gives people an opportunity to give away the one resource they usually have an overabundance of – WISDOM and ADVICE.
Meaning, most people who start an online business don’t have a lot of extra TIME or MONEY, but they DO have a lot of unique experience and wisdom from their lives.
By embracing Blogging as a business model for making money online, they can transform that WISDOM and ADVICE they’ve accumulated up in their minds over the years by SHARING it with others.
And by giving away this value from their life experience and their passions in life they could activate this Universal Law of GIVING and RECEIVING to get what they want – which is to make money online.
I have tested and proven to myself many times that this concept of giving and receiving tenfold in return works.
But, there is one mistake that most people make which will not activate this law in your life.
Avoid This Mistake
The one mistake that people can make here is not understanding the difference between “Actual Use Value” and “What You Think is the Use Value”.
The Universe will flow back to you ten fold or more of what you give away to the world in ACTUAL USE VALUE, not just in value you THINK you’re giving away.
Meaning, for example, if I write a garbage blog post, that I slap together without putting any real effort into it, then that blog post might only provide $0.01 in value to the world, or even less.
Also, if I don’t learn how to properly market my blog and my blog posts, so that they are seen by thousands of people, then the value doesn’t get multiplied a lot.
Meaning, there’s a big difference between a blog post with let’s say $0.50 worth of “use value” that is seen by 1,000 people, versus a crappy blog post with $0.01 of “use value” that is only seen by 5 people.
In the first case $0.50 x 1,000 people = $500 worth of actual use value, which means the Universe will flow back to you $5,000 worth of value.
In the second case $0.01 x 5 people = $0.05 worth of actual use value, which means the Universe will flow back to you $0.50 worth of value.
See the difference?
You have to create value in the world that people actually find useful…not just slap stuff together… but also, you have to learn how to MARKET and DISTRIBUTE that value to as many people as possible, because that is the multiplication factor that will change everything.
Often times I’ll see people starting a Blog, and they’ll write 5 AMAZING blog posts that could easily be worth $10 in “Use Value” to people, but then they don’t take the time to learn how to market or distribute those blog posts to people, so their audience is ZERO people.
Well, if your audience is ZERO people, then any value you provide times ZERO is still going to be ZERO.
This is why it’s important to learn both ( 1 ) How to create VALUABLE content that actually provides VALUE to people, and ( 2 ) How to properly MARKET, DISTRIBUTE and MONETIZE your Blog so that you activate and multiply the effects of the Law of Giving and Receiving.
This is why I’m so excited to be a part of Empower Network, because that is exactly what we teach people to do.
We teach people how to create valuable Blog content, we teach people how to actually market their Blogs so that they have an audience, and then finally we teach them how to monetize those Blogs.
