Overnight success

While chasing after the illusion of overnight success you might wish to consider what usually precedes this fantasy :-

  1. sleepless nights;
  2. discouragement;
  3. hard work;
  4. risk taking;
  5. multiple failures;
  6. bankruptcies;
  7. Years of practice;
  8. massive effort;
  9. loss of money;
  10. loss of friends and partners;
  11. loneliness;
  12. self doubt;
  13. early mornings;
  14. stress;
  15. burnout;
  16. criticism;

Rather than chase the mirage of overnight success, settle down, dig in and do the work.
