Article Writing and Marketing: Become a Limitation Buster

"Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they are yours." - Richard Bach

I hear or read it every day from one of my students or mentees. I've begun to call it "the basic limitation."

The basic limitation goes something like this:

I can't write write well write a lot.

It usually comes down to one of those three limitations.

The good news is limitations are made to be busted if you want to.

A secret of prolific writiers

Most of the prolific writers I know have a system they follow. They may not know they have one, but after asking a few questions, I can usually identify their system.

Here's one way to write many articles in your area of expertise. Find a quote by someone famous in your area or a quote that relates to your area of expertise.

Then all you have to do is elaborate on the quote. Explain your understanding of the quote. Give an example of what happens when the advice in the quote is followed and an example of what happens when the advice in the quote is not followed.

There you are, you now have an article.

You could do this over and over and have several articles.

Do you still believe you cannot write a whole lot of articles? Well you can keep that limitation if you want, or you can use the tips found in this article.

The choice is yours to make.
