Today's inspiration comes from John Maxwell and his book The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth:
How much time have I wasted wishing I were more like another writer? Not only have I squandered energy envying their talent, but also their success or productivity.
Doing that won't produce anything more than a crummy attitude. To have a shot at writing great books, my focus needs to be on nurturing the stories and voice that I've been gifted with, and doing my best with the time and talent I have.
Do you struggle with comparing yourself to other writers? Have you found ways to keep yourself from doing that? If so, we'd love to hear how!
