Discipline: A requisite to become numbered among the best writers in the world

Discipline

When I host writing-related WhatsApp sessions, I give participants the opportunity of an introduction and to say something special about themselves.

I remember a participant who said, โ€œI want to be the best writer in the world.โ€ I thought, โ€œOh, thatโ€™s great. Thatโ€™s where it all beginsโ€”saying the right things.โ€

But, do you stop there? No! Your words should lead you to action.

To maintain the action, you need one thingโ€”one of the most important characteristics of a writerโ€”discipline!

Check the most successful writers in the world. One thing you will observe with them is discipline.

I remember reading about Jerry B. Jenkins. He noted that when writing his first book, he had another job.

To complete his manuscript, he had to write from 9 pm-12 midnight every day.

Whatโ€™s that? Discipline!

Dear writer, ๐—ถ๐—ณ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜ ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ฑ, ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜ ๐˜„๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—น๐—ฑ.

The title of my first e-book is, โ€œ8 Disciplines for Successโ€ (currently under review). In it, I stated, โ€œMany desire to be successful, but are not ready to subject to the discipline that success demands.โ€

I ask you today: Do you want to rank high as a writer? Or do you want to get by?

I want you to aim for the top in writing. One thing you need to achieve this is discipline.

I leave you with these words by George Washington, โ€œDiscipline is the soul of an army. It makes small numbers formidable; procures success to the weak, and esteem to all.โ€

Do you want to be formidable as a writer? Do you want to procure success as a writer? Do you want esteem as a writer? Do you want to become the best writer in the world? Discipline is one thing you canโ€™t discard.

Remember, ๐—ถ๐—ณ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜ ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ฑ, ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜ ๐˜„๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—น๐—ฑ.

Will you be a disciplined writer this week and forever? Let me know in the comment section.

I’m cheering you on ๐Ÿค—.
