Thinking about what to write on the blog today, I realized that a turning point for me was the decision (come hell or high a water) to write on my blog everyday (exception is Sundays). You may wonder, “Why in the world do this?”
Easy. If you want to be great at something, you need to go all in.
That’s what I am aiming for. Greatness in my writing. Now I may have a few hiccups here, however I know that being a master at something takes 10,000 hours.
A Michael Jordan had to practice in order to become a champion. A Babe Ruth had to practice hitting balls in order to become great. A Walter Payton had to run hills in order to become a legend.
Instead of wishing to be great at writing, I rather dive right in with both feet. Yeah, my writing at time may come out unpolished, raw, and dead yet this doesn’t deter me. Every time I deposit my thoughts here on this blog and whether someone reads this or not, I did the most important part…I showed up.
Showing up…wow…ever consider how important this mere act is. What? You don’t?
Consider this simple act in the below video:
Cal Ripken reached greatness because he showed up. I’m driven. I’m committed. I’m hungry.
THAT is why I write 6 times a week.
What about you? What have you decided lately to “go all in?”
