Sure, you can be an overnight success. You just have to:
- Show up every day consistently
- Refine, refine, refine
- Push your ideas to the limit
- Take calculated risks
- Discard what doesn’t work
- Ignore the naysayers
- Never give up
It may take 5 years or 10 years to become that overnight success!
The growth hacking is embedded in the habits which put you on track.
There are no guarantees. There are only increased probabilities. It’s like Gary Player famously stated,
The harder I work, the luckier I get.
You are giving yourself a chance to get lucky. But lucky tends to favor those that are good.
It’s easy to get your voice out there more than ever. You can set up your own radio show, make your own music album or start a magazine. But you are also competing against the entire world who can do the same.
Paying that price is steep, but you get to be one of the few who actually pay the price. Think about your overnight success as a learning journey and personal development. The real value comes in how you are changing and seeing the world. It’s also in how you approach the work day in and day out without question and with commitment and excellence.
What would you want to work at consistently and enjoy doing?
