Writing is like losing weight.
How? Well . . .
- You just have to do it.
- It takes commitment.
- You can’t just do it for one day and expect amazing results.
- The more you work at it, the better you get at it.
- It feels great!
Now I’m sure there’s other parallels we could draw between writing and loosing weight, but let’s just talk about these five for now.
You Just Have To Do It
You have this image in your head of the body you’d like to have. Hopefully it’s a healthy body that looks great because you are glowing with inner beauty and healthy eating and activity.
Well, also in your head is the image of a happy writer who’s sharing their works with the world.
How do you accomplish these two things? You just do it. Yeah I know, you are hearing a Nike commercial right now.
So how do you “just do it?”
It Takes Commitment
Every day you have to make the choice to eat healthy and get regular exercise.
Every day you have to make the choice to write.
But that’s hard, which is why . . .
You Can’t Just Do It For One Day And Expect Amazing Results
Yes, you can eat totally healthy and exercise for one day and feel amazing at the end of the day, but if that’s all you ever do, you aren’t going to get that healthy body you need.
If you only write one day, or sporadically, you aren’t going to become an amazing, talented writer.
Which is why . . .
The More You Work At It, The Better You Get
Each day that you make a healthy eating choice, it becomes easier the next day and the day after to keep making those healthy eating choices. Each day you exercise, your body become more efficient at those workouts you’ve been trying to do. You will start to exercise more efficiently. (Of course, this is just my own observation.)
The more you write, the better you get. Period.
And last . . .
It feels Great!
When you are living a healthy life, you feel great. Who doesn’t want that?
When you write something amazing, something that resonates -even if you’re the only seeing it, it feels great.
