What you need to know about the ‘overnight success’

Work vs luck

In 99.9999999% of cases, there’s no such thing as an ‘overnight success’. It just doesn’t happen.

  • That writer that blows up when one article goes viral has another hundred that have a handful of views between them.
  • That industry thought leader that seems to be everywhere right now spent 15 years building their knowledge.
  • That podcaster with 100k downloads listened and read and studied until they felt they had something important to say.


Success doesn’t come overnight…the knowledge and skill behind the success takes years and decades to build.

So, ask yourself this – is what you’re working towards worth the years of effort it’ll take to get there?

If not, well then it might be time to reconsider.
