Practice Daily What You Want to Become Forever

 IMG_0986

I love writing.  It gives me a chance to put my thoughts on paper.  It allows me to share my deep inclinations to the world.  I believe that it allows me to work through demons from my past and things I have lost along the way.

But I don’t practice it enough.  I don’t read books on writing.  I don’t attend workshops to learn more about prose and sentence structure.  I don’t watch videos on how to capture my audience.

In the future I will do some of those things,  but not all.  I think the best way to become a better writer is to write dammit. To practice writing more and more.  To put my words down in black and white for the world to digest.

The other thing I love, not more than my family mind you, is to help others.  I was never in the service to become the best Soldier I could be.  I don’t think I ever was.  I wanted to be the best human being who led and took care of soldiers.  I wanted them to follow me because I would always be there for them.  Not because of tradition and rules.

I read every personal development book that I could get my hands onto.  I read, deciphered and applied the lessons not only to myself but to those under my charge.  I quickly saw soldiers who were once always in trouble see the error of their ways.  Buy giving them words of wisdom  to think about, I helped them change and become better productive human beings.  Them becoming better leaders was a byproduct.

Practice doesn’t make perfect.  Practice makes people better than they could ever imagine. All the books I’ve read.  All the lives I have encounter and helped enrich and grow.  I practiced helping others. And it made me become a better person.

All of that has helped me to land here where I am now.  Writing these words for you all to see.  I have practiced for twenty-two and a half years to get to this point.  To hopefully help influence your life for the better.

So keep practicing so you can become better than you could ever imagine.

  1. Love your words Antonio! It is so easy to be intimidated by all the great work others do that we give up way to early or don’t even try. And as you said, it’s not about being perfect. I think it’s more about feeling comfortable in what we do. And aren’t imperfect things much more intersting than perfect ones? 😉
