"Good" and "successful" may not be the same thing.
E.L. James, the writer of Fifty Shades of Grey, would generally be considered to be successful, but her writing (in writing circles) is considered to be very poor. She just hit the write market at the right time.
How to be good:

* Keep writing.
How to be successful:
* Get a lucky break.
