3 Simple Tips
to Get Closer to Success
Tip #1: Define Success
To some, selling 50 books is a good start. To others, it is terrible. To some, slowly building an audience over time is good, steady success. To others, if they’re not followed by 75k people, they might as well give up.
What does success look like TO YOU?
Is it realistic? Or does it sound like a get-rich-quick scheme? Be honest. Dig deep. Figure out your starting point, your definition of success– and what you need to do to reach YOUR level of success.
Tip #2: Learn

If you’re stuck, you’re not learning anything new.
Study books about writing, storytelling, outlining, time management, etc.

Tip #3: Listen to Feedback
There’s the story of a kid who was the stinky one in class. All the other kids taunted him, saying, “You stink!” Then one day, a girl said, “Hey, I know what that smell is. I recognize it. You are letting your wet laundry sit in the washer too long.” And that’s how, through feedback, he didn’t stink anymore.
☝️ That is how some feedback can help you improve.
Listen to your readers. What did they find problematic? How can you fix it? Some feedback is useless (“you stink!”) but some feedback (“hey, this is what’s up”) is priceless.
