There’s one thing of real value
For most (new) writers becoming a Medium Top Writer is the wholy grail.
Most of the people I’ve coached throughout November and December gained at least one badge of honor.
Tamil is the latest of my students.
She became a Top Writer in ‘Ideas.
Celebrating is crucial.
When you set out to pursue a goal, celebrating your small wins along the way is essential, guys.
You might wonder:
How did Tamil and the other news and aspiring wrtiters become a Top Writer?
Well, there’s a common thread among my Top Writer students.
Over and over they have shown perseverance.
With perseverance, no challenge is too big to overcome
The Myth of Sisyphus is a metaphor for the human condition: perseverance.
Sisyphus was a figure of Greek mythology. He was condemned to repeat forever the same meaningless task.
He pushed a darn rock uphill, only to see it roll down again … and again.
Sisyphus continues to persist in the face of absolute struggle.
He grew, learned, and thrived against all odds, and that made the victory even sweeter.
Commit to a regular writing habit
One of the most effective ways to develop your perseverance is to commit to a regular/daily writing habit.
Medium’s algorithm loves it when you publish on a regular basis.
