“A young man once made an appointment to interview a well known author. As he began the conversation, the author interrupted and asked, “Why did you want to see me?” The young man paused, and then replied, “Well, I am a writer, too. I was hoping you could share your keys for success.”
“What have you written?” the author quizzed. “Nothing,” his visitor replied. “At least nothing that is complete.” The writer stood up before asking another question. “Well if you haven’t written anything, what are you writing?”
His guest responded, “Well, I am currently in school and I am hoping to find the time to pen a few thoughts.” As the author walked toward the door, he fired one final question before cutting the interview short. “So why do you call yourself a writer?”
Do you have a dream, a vision, a plan? Get to work, take the steps to make your dream a reality. Until you begin you are just a mere dreamer. Remember nothing works until you work it. Your dreams won’t build themselves, neither can you become anything by wishing.
Folks, writers write; Singers sing; Teachers teach; Preachers preach; Coaches coach; Painters paint, Workers work. You see what you do determines what you become. It doesn’t matter how terrible you may be now, just keep doing it. All masters were once apprentices, and perfection is achieved through repetition.
