Want to be a better writer?
Be willing to fail.
I can see the panic in your eyes.
Failure is scary. You don’t want to fail, you want to succeed.
So why am I telling you to be willing to fail?
Because if you are not willing to fail, you will stay exactly as you are. Getting better at writing requires learning new skills and learning new skills requires taking a risk. With risk comes the possibility of failure… and the possibility of success.
Avoiding failure limits you.
If you’re like most people, you have learned to avoid failure in life. You’ve struggled to avoid mistakes in order to look good. While this strategy may have served you at times it also limits you.
