How many times have you heard that it takes will power to forge you way to a goal?
The old no pain no gain theory doesn’t really work unless you want to a body builder. And I know plenty of them who love the pain…
Being a great writer isn’t about slogging away at the keyboard just as building a great relationship isn’t about self-denial and running faster isn’t about pounding the pavement.
All of the things that you’ll be great at will come from the bursting urge to do them.
You’ll write like a genius when you can’t wait to get to the keyboard. You’ll build a monumental relationship when you are bursting to give to your partner. You’ll run faster when it’s for the joy and freedom of it.
Don’t look to build willpower – search instead for a way to put love into what you do. You’ll hit genius level quickly.
