The Myth of the Overnight Success

Success

Behind every CEO is a job they got fired from. Behind every entrepreneur is a failed startup idea. Behind every inventor is a product that never made it past the prototype. When you see someone who’s rich, famous, or wildly successful, you’re just seeing the tip of the iceberg.

There’s a reason Michelle Obama said, “Failure is a part of the process. You just learn to pick yourself up. And the quicker and more resilient you become, the better you are.” Failure is part of the long and winding road to success. It’s how you learn, grow, and develop your skills. So rather than trying to fast-track your way to overnight success, remember to slow down and embrace the learning curve. 

You might be surprised how long it took many famous people to reach prosperity. Not yet convinced? Check out the infographic below.
