Practice, Practice,and more Practice

Last Update: February 17, 2015

Any one can succeed at anything they set their mind to do. I truly believe this because I've done it several times in my life. What ever you want to succeed at requires a certain set of skills. You need to learn those skills. All skills can can be learned. Here at WA we are learning the skills required to succeed with an online business.

Once you have learned the skill then you need to practice that skill until you become great at that skill. This requires a great work ethic because you need to practice your new skill every chance you get. If you want to succeed where everyone else is failing than you have to put the work in to get your skills above everyone else.

One of the basic skills required to succeed online is the ability to write. It's a skill that we can all acquire but it does require lots of practice. Last year I skipped out on this skill as I have a fear of writing. So I paid others to write my blog post for me. This eventually came back to bite me. When I ran into some family issues that drained my bank accounts, I could no longer afford to pay others to write my blogs for me. My website went silent.

This morning I wrote my third blog in my come back on my website. It's difficult for me to write but I'm pushing myself to do it. I know that in the long run I'll get better at it and I'll eventually get more comfortable with writing as well. It's a skill that I must improve if I'm going to achieve success online.

My new goal is to post a short blog here on WA on a daily basis. It's all about practicing the skills and writing a daily blog is great practice.

Excellent. Not only do we need to be skillful writers but it is imperative we become prolific writers as well. I practice as much and as often as I can. The goal you have set for yourself is a good one. We don't want to just be good, we want to be great and the on;y way to do become great is to do it as often as you possibly can( commenting is a good way to practice also:)

You are correct. We need to be great at writing so that we can produce great content, quickly and easily. With this mastery then you can master all the other skills needed for this business because there are many skills required for success.

Yes, commenting is great practice as well.

I like to write. We all have something to say and our own way of I saying it. I don't think you should stress about it too much, just write and your personality will shine through. And as you say the more you write the better you get.

There are a lot of excellent how to write books out there that can be of help also. Best wishes. :)

The online business is a natural fit for those who like to write. For the rest of us, we can learn to write as well as anyone. We just need the motivation to keep practicing.

Everything starts with that first step. Then it takes many more steps to finish the race.
