How to be like Mike

I enjoy watching documentaries of how great athletes came

into being. And watching the documentary called The

Last Dance these last few weeks about Michael Jordan was

a reminder once again that great athletes aren't just born,

they are made.


You see, Michael Jordan's documentary illustrated that he

didn't become a great player simply because of his innate

talent; while that was a good start, Michael became a great

player because he practiced and perfected his craft. He

went to the court, night or day and practiced his basketball

skills. He trained and disciplined his body to do what it

needed to do each time he entered the basketball arena to

play a basketball game. He disciplined himself by saying no

to the distractions that kept him from focusing on his game,

and he learned how to take and use constructive criticism

from his high school, college and pro coaches to help

him become a great basketball player

.

Is it your desire to be like Mike? To be not

just a good writer, but a great one? Then practice your craft

daily to perfect your writing skills. Discipline your mind and

body by creating a set time and place to write. Be willing to

say no to the distractions that will seek to keep you from

writing, and be willing to accept criticism when needed to

help you become a better writer.


Being like Michael Jordan doesn't just have to be a lyric

you remember from an old commercial jingle. With hard

work and determination on your part, you can be like Mike

and become the great Christian writer God has called you

to be.


Sharing the journey,


Jeaninne
