There’s no such thing as an overnight success.
When you finally reach your ‘big break’, everyone will tell you how lucky you are and how ‘fortunate’ you are but is it really that? Years and years of hard work has to happen behind the scenes for you ‘make it.’
In this video Gary Vaynerchuk goes on a rant about the decades of time and work that he put in before become a celebrity. In it you see the hundreds of YouTube videos that he did that got almost no views before he finally cracked the code.
People would reach then reach out to him to tell him that his luck to be where he is today.
But these people were really just using luck as a cop-out.
People will justify not putting in the effort themselves to get to where they want to be by saying that success only comes by chance.
I agree. You must sacrifice, while no one is watching, in order to get where you want to go.
