Why do we study?
To get best job?
But think again.
Are jobs really good/best to live an enjoyable life?
If you'll ask same question to me, I will say ‘BIG NO.'
Because I know what you'll be doing when you get a job.
One of my friends got job in a great MNC as verification engineer in 12.5 lakh per annum package. After a long time I called him, and I was very excited because I knew he is getting great salary. So as per my assumption he must be the most happiest person in the world.
As we talked on phone, he told me how he is going from FRUSTRATION phase of his life.
He said he is spending 12+ hours in office and they don't even allow him to take proper rest on Sunday as well.
So this frustration was obvious.
Note: Here I am not saying that you don't go for job, and my aim is not to discourage you regarding job. I am just telling you the truth and sharing the real life incident which just happened with me.
I know our parents don't allow us to do blogging and they don't know what we are doing with this idiot box. For them we are just wasting our time by chatting with our friends and just opening any websites to pass the time.
Here I am sharing some great points which are more than sufficient to convince your parents.
#1. Show them great blogs
Show them best blogs and tell your parents how these blogs are helping people in the world to solve their problems. Show them the number of article that blog have published (you can check this from archive of blog) and how this blog is attracting millions of people every month to help them.
-> This step will make their mind to understand the power of websites.
#2. Show them income proof of great bloggers
If you will be able to do this step wisely, your parents never going to discourage you for blogging. 😉
Biggest example you can show them is income proofs of pat Flynn from SmartPassiveIncome (I love this blog badly :)).
Tell them the potential of making money on internet and tell them how you are going to do this with your blog.
-> This step will convince them to understand the big potential on internet to make money.
#3. Show them the potential of internet
Internet have turned into giant platform in last 3-5 years and have filled with lots of information.
Give them example of ATM machine and tell them how this is running on internet and how internet is almost everywhere these days. You can show them Top Earning Websites and amount of money those people are making online.
These companies are making such HUGE income just because of internet and how this world is converting into e-Commerce these days.
-> This step will help them understand that you are doing right activity on internet and in coming years you can become like these people.
#4. Show them the amount of fame which you will get once you are a blogger
Fame is such a thing which cannot be explained in words.
Show them owner of great blogs and interview of them on big blogs.
Getting fame on internet is not so hard if you are following steps very carefully and learning the things.
-> Who are the parents who don't want to see their son/daughter as a successful person? So this step is going to make you parents feel proud.
#5. Show them the satisfaction which you get when you blog
If you feel satisfied playing cricket then I will suggest you go and play it, soon you will be great player.
If you are feeling satisfactory by reading books then go and read them and soon you will be a great writer.
So if you feeling more satisfied doing online work as compared to job then do it. 🙂
Tell your parents that this is my life and I am going to live it in this way only. I am feeling very very much satisfied doing this.
-> This step will help your parents understand that you are very much passionate about the internet. So they are never going to stop you in future.
#6. Show them your online presence
If you are having a blog then there must be a good number of comments on your blog and you must be having Facebook page, twitter profile and other social media presence.
Show them comments on your blog and show them how people are getting benefits from your article and how they are encouraging you in comments. Show them you social media profiles and interaction with people there.
-> This step will help your parents to understand that you are in helping mode. And giving is always BIGGER than taking.
I tried my best to convince my parents and it is your turn now if you are facing any kind of discouragement from your parent and they don't know what you are doing.
These worked for me and I guarantee that these are going to work for you also.
Don't forget to share your awesome comments and let me know how you are going to do this.
I would love to see your encouraging comments so that I can produce more quality content in future.
All the very best.
Keep blogging. Keep rocking. 🙂
