Over the last few weeks, I've been trying to wrap my head around the question of “Why do I do what I do?”. Then, I listened to a podcast episode on the Internet Business Mastery podcast where they spoke about The Importance of a Purpose-Driven Business.

After listening to that episode, I ended up being even more important that I needed to figure out what my Single Motivating Purpose is (or SMP for short).

Listen to This Episode

I'm in the country of Colombia right now, and I've had a few days to myself to really hone in on what my SMP will be and ended up deciding to go with something that didn't even seem to make sense when it comes to what I think a single motivating purpose is supposed to accomplish.

It was so different from what I expected that I had to move away from SMP to just coming up with a Main Focus of my life.

I've decided to make my Main FOCUS to Know Jesus. As a result of that, I've been studying His life and was fascinated to see that as soon as I started to focus on His life, I started getting Blogging Lessons.

So, I decided to share 5 of these lessons with you, and to drive it home even more, I decided to make a very Pinnable Infographic that drives home those 5 points.


Strange right? I know. Maybe it's because I'm a bit biased about this blogging stuff, lol.

Now, I know what some of you may be thinking – I come here for blogging lessons, not to be preached to.

Don't worry, I'm not a pastor and I fully understand. In many ways, I feel that we preach to often instead of just living life and letting our lives do the preaching.

However, even if you aren't a Christian, I think you can still get value from this podcast episode and learn lessons that can help your blog reach to the Heavens (pun intended).

I'm reminded of a quote by Michael Hiatt, that's especially applicable here:

Even if you are not a Christian – or don't consider yourself a spiritually-inclined person – the Bible is worth reading. Without question, it has had a greater impact on Western civilization than any other book Published – Michael Hyatt

So, have a listen, and let me know what you think in the comments below.


Some people prefer to read along with the podcast episode. Others actually prefer to read than listen. If you are one of those people, not to worry. I’ve got a transcript right here for you 🙂
