Every writer that has ever wanted to be a success needs to remember one simple idea: always persist at getting better at what you do. That one concept can carry anyone, from the athlete to the executive, to the highest levels in the field.
Maurilio Amorim over at the A Group reminded me of that concept about how to make a difference this morning as I was doing my Wednesday Wanderings. The words shared on the blog and in the comments began to drive my own motivation to learn more and be more than I already am.
I can never stay where I am and still get to where I want to be. There has to be more – more effort, more information, more doing. Getting better requires that I change the current way of doing things and that can only happen when I learn a better way of doing it.
Dare to change.
It may pay to be a good writer, but it will pay more to be a better writer. I have found that stepping out into new areas of writing force me to learn more about different subjects, make me more aware of how I use my words, and open up new doors of opportunity for my writing.
The more I am willing to do then the more I am able to do. It seems simple enough, but it can be so much easier to settle in the normal way of doing things and just accept the good or the average.
I want to dare to change and look for the best in all that I do.
What are you willing to do to continue getting better?
