Nothing Great Happens Overnight

Michael Jordan wasn’t born the greatest basketball player of all time.

Warren Buffet wasn’t born one of the world's wealthiest men.

Every single Major League Baseball player has spent 15+ years playing 100+ games a year before they ever make a dollar.

You don't see the work.

You don't see the time invested.

You don't see the early mornings.

You don't see the late nights.

All you see is the result.

You see the glory.

You see the greatness.

You see the cover of Sports Illustrated or Time Magazine.

Showing the minimum 10 year journey behind the scenes isn’t a sexy story.

It doesn’t get the ratings.

That's why you are told & SOLD the story of the overnight success.

You are sold the idea that you aren’t worthy because it doesn’t come easy for you.

Don’t believe it.

It's fatal.

People greatly overestimate the amount of progress that can be made in one year and greatly underestimate what can be done in 10.

Time is going to pass either way, and it can either be your best friend & biggest advantage, or it can be the cruelest bitch you’ve ever met.

Don’t believe the hype.

Commit.

Dig in.

Go All In.

Or you can spend the next 50 years struggling through life, being bitter, and wondering why things didn’t “work out” for you.

It's your decision.

Choose wisely.
