Great writers treat words with great esteem. And it is considered the hardest part to start writing.

After that, it’s up to inspiration to do the work.

Writing is all about clarity and persuasion, and writers are seen as clear thinkers.

It is expected that when you present your written piece, it meets the reader’s expectation and above all makes him feel some kind of emotion.

If you feel that you are close to fulfilling all these characteristics, you are on the right track in your career as a writer.

Success is the goal, and the path is your career as a professional writer.

That is why today I want to share with you six quotes about success, which can help you to make you a better writer.

I. Being passionate

You can master many skills by doing your job, you can have a lot of knowledge and read the best books.

But what really matters is the passion you put into everything you do.

A great prominent woman as an entrepreneur, author, and former American real estate developer once said:

“It’s very hard to be great at what you do if you aren’t deeply passionate.”

Ivanka Trump

If you want and want with all you might to be the best, you must be deeply passionate in everything you do.

You dedicate your mind entirely to your career and you will not hesitate to take advantage of everything that is favorable in your personal development as a writer.

Passion is the fire that keeps burning your desire to be better.

II. You have to believe

We all know that the mind is very powerful, and if your thoughts point to the highest place, every step you take will take you to that place.

You will go as far as you propose, without changing your thinking to another place, other than success.

But you have to believe.

The famous media executive, actress, television producer and philanthropist once said:

“Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life, because you become what you believe.”

Oprah Winfrey

If you start to have control of what you think, and what you think is a great goal, you will have already reached the halfway point.

You will become a great writer and you will reach the top, create that thought in your mind and you will become what you believe.

III. Work hard

Hard work makes things start to happen. Dream and work, but more than anything work hard in your career.

The most important habit to put into practice is to work hard, then you can enjoy your results full of satisfaction.

Dreams elevate us mentally, but action will take you to the clouds.

An award-winning writer and producer once said:

“Dreams are lovely. But they are just dreaming. Fleeting, ephemeral, pretty. But dreams do not come true just because you dream them. It’s hard work that makes things happen. It’s hard work that creates change.”

Shonda Rhimes

Do not stay dreaming, you have to wake up and start to shape everything you are dreaming about. Every word you write completes the sentence your paragraph needs to complete the first page of your great book.

When you finish your project, you will enjoy your dream come true.

IV. You need discipline

Getting to achieve the dreams, the goals, the objectives that you set for yourself are possible. Now, achieving what you would like always requires an effort on your part.

Do not stay with the phrase that everything is possible. You have to add the price of whatever you intend to do.

And the price is having discipline.

It will allow you to do the right thing, what really matters. In your career as a writer, there are many things to work on, and their accomplishment depends on your being disciplined.

Britain’s longest-serving prime minister of the 20th century and the first woman to hold that position once said:

“Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and important, although difficult, is the highroad to pride, self-esteem, and personal satisfaction.”

Margaret Thatcher

When you are disciplined, success is almost guaranteed. Your personal development your skills, day by day they are reaching the highest level.

And although the work is difficult, the satisfaction of being able to impact others with your words, it will be the most precious prize.

You will be a great writer, and all for giving value to discipline in your life.

V. You must awaken emotions

Emotions are part of our life, and that is why the passion and feelings that you put into your writing are what will make your masterpiece stand out.

Emotions when writing play a very important role.

We can establish that people are made up of three elements: the physical element, the rational element and the emotional element.

The well-known American poet, memoirist, and civil rights activist once said:

“I learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Maya Angelou

As a writer you must write thinking about the emotions you want to convey to your readers, that the voice you want to present is heard clearly.

That is why personal experiences are so effective when sharing a topic that you want to be engraved in the minds of those who enjoy your written piece.

Express your writings, from the depths of your heart and your words will never be forgotten.

VI. You must impact lives

You know that you finally achieved success, when you managed to impact someone else’s life. If you can motivate, encourage, and shake someone’s floor, you’ve accomplished the most valuable thing.

It is useless to put one word after another on the paper.

Your first objective before starting to write is to think about how my message will positively impact the person who is going to read it.

The famous and well-known American lawyer and author who was the First Lady of the United States from 2009 to 2017 once said:

“Success isn’t about how much money you make, it’s about the difference you make in people’s lives.”

Michelle Obama

It is clear, success does not depend on how much money you are generating with your career. Success is measured in how much difference you make with your messages, in people’s lives.

If you are reading this now, I am sure that you are already impacting many people with your message.

That is why it is vital that your writing is always focused on the people who are going to read it. And that they are written in a well thought out way, in order to meet the needs of your reader.
