Building Yourself Up

There is a lot of advice on the internet. Some of the advice is good, some of its bad. Often times, advice blogs and articles repeat themselves. This may be advice you’ve heard before, but I would like to stress how important it is. When looking at the world and people, I try to understand why some stand out while others don’t. If you look at the greats – famous writers, artist, musicians, or even local artist, certain behavior stands out about them.

I recently rewatched Game of Thrones today, and I don’t want to spoil anything, but I thought about the importance of building yourself up.

If we want to be famous, well-known or build a fanbase, we have to start at the bottom. Many times, we won’t get anywhere if we don’t keep trying.

For those new to writing, or still trying to make a name for yourself, you need to keep building.

Building yourself up is hard; it takes a lot of time and persistence. After all, look how many years it took Daenerys to get her army and ships =) Now she has both. We have to put in the effort and have discipline. I feel that’s hard for a lot of people, but stay focused, and don’t let time slip away from you. Time is your most valuable thing. Remember

Time waits for no one

So get writing!
