Just because someone seems like an “overnight” success, doesn’t mean they are. In almost all cases, their journey involved hours upon hours of work and struggle no one ever saw, tears cried no one ever heard, and challenges possibly even harder than you’ve yet to overcome.
Before you wish you had their path, think long and hard about whether or not you’re willing to put in all the work, blood, sweat, and tears they put in – the ones that no one will ever see, the one no one will even know you did.
Then instead of just wishing it for yourself, make it happen.
Stop telling yourself you “can’t” because… Don’t give up on yourself before you even really try.
Do the work!
See what you can accomplish in spite of the obstacles or challenges that come your way.
