People are often told that is they could write better, they would be more successful.
If becoming a better writer than you already are automatically shoots you up the success ladder is doubtful, but it certainly wouldn’t hurt your climb to success.

To study the question thoroughly, we need to divide it into two parts. First, is success furthered by better writing? If so, what are the ways to become a better writer?

Does Having Better Writing Skills Help Lead to Success?

1. Explore Who You Are

People are often unhappy because they are confused as to what their true calling in life is. When you write your thoughts down, you’ll find it’s easier to explore just who you are and what direction you want your life to go. Writing also helps you connect the past with the present in order to lay out a plan for the future.

2. Reaffirms Your Intentions

Thinking positively and having goal affirmations helps us go forward in achieving success in life. Writing enables us to put these affirmations into a physical form to better visualize our goals. Visualizing your dreams helps creates a mindset to make achieving those ambitions possible. .

3. Inspires and Influences Others

Part of judging a person’s success is seeing how they inspire and influence others. Even the very best and smartest will eventually fail if they are unable to communicate with others and inspire them.

Writing from the heart produces clear messages and enhances your skills of communication. Even when you write simple daily communications like email and social media, using verbal language that is honest, humble and clear will stamp you as someone who imparts success.

4. Creates Discipline

Successful people normally lead a very disciplined life. Successful athletes, musicians and business leaders usually follow daily routines guided by hard work and repeated rituals.

Writing regularly on a daily or even weekly basis helps you establish those routines that result in the discipline that helps lead you to success. It also helps you build the courage to pursue your dreams of success.

5. Defines Who You Are

Most of our communication with others is done through the written word. Be it emails, reports, letters or even books, what and how we write gives the reader a picture of who you are.

Few if any promotions are going to come your way regardless of how smart up are of you can’t write clearly, use bad grammar or don’t write in an organized manner that makes sense.

The old saying “you are what you eat” has a partner: “You are what you write.” Remember that as you translate your mental thoughts into the written word.

Now that you see how good writing can help you achieve success, here are some simple rules on how to become a better writer.

1. Be Clear

Before you begin to write, always ask yourself one question: “why am I writing?”

Once you’ve determined that, you can begin. Remember, the best usually has a clear, ringing intention to attract the reader..

2. Get to the Point

In a world where we’ve inundated with written message, brevity is important. Don’t begin with meaningless greetings or comments. Get to the reason for the message immediately. Use these three keys to get your message across: what’s the reason for writing the message, what you want the reader to know about it and what you want the reader to do.

3. Strip the Excess

In general, write in simple, understandable terms. Imagine that your readers are kids who are impatient, easily distracted and have no tolerance for unnecessary wordage.

4 Have a Strong Closing

Close with a decisive stance on what you think. Never end with a question. State what you think.

5. Read Your Writing Out Loud to Yourself

When finished writing, read your words out loud. Do they sound human and not something written by a robot? Are your sentences short and meaningful rather than long and rambling?

Reading out loud also helps you catch typos, duplicate or missing words and grammatical errors. Through self-editing like this, you’ll invariably end up with a better piece of writing.
