Are you ready to become a writer?
Ask yourself these three questions, and you’ll soon find out, what your motives are and if you’re a good fit for writing. Here are the three questions again.
- Are you willing to work for something bigger than yourself?
- Are you willing to work with no recognition?
- Are you prepared to be always learning?
If you answered ‘Yes’ to all of those questions, then let’s get started. There’s no better moment than the one we have now. Start writing today and if you’re stuck with what to write about then check out my article below for ten ideas for new writers.
If you answered ‘No’ to any of the questions above, don’t give up. Remember, writing is about learning.
I’ll let you in on a secret. I started writing for the money, but relatively quickly after beginning, I realised it would take a long time before I made the money I thought I would. So, I faced a choice.
- Keep going, forget about the money and see what happens.
- Give up now and find something that pays better.
I elected for option one. And, I’m glad I did, if I had given up, I wouldn’t have developed the love for writing that I have now. I always thought that I hated writing, but in fact, once I started and gave it some time, my interest turned into a full-blown love affair.
I fell in love with helping people and trying to change the world. I can honestly say, writing has changed me and my priorities in life.
So, what I say to you if you answered ‘No’ is not to give up and keep going. Give writing a shot and see what happens, you might fall in love with it as I did.
I hope this article has shed some light on the world of writing and whether or not it would be a good fit for you. Writing is unlike every other job, writing takes dedication, love and care and only with these will we get the change we crave.
To change the world, we must first learn to change ourselves and our writing.
To improve, we must change and change we must practice, and our practice needs to be habitual. We need to be writing every single day if we are to become as good as we desire. The easiest way to do this is to make writing a daily habit and making daily habits is something you can learn about in my article ‘How You Can Have Successful Habits in 3 Easy steps!’.
