Key Points

1. Overnight Success Takes Years

So often, whenever we see someone who is successful, we forget all of the hard work and grinding that it took to get to that point. We see the fast cars, beautiful women, and big houses on Facebook and forget that they put years and years of work to get to where they are.

If you want to have that same level of success, you have to be willing to put in the same level of work, this means keeping your nose to the grindstone for years without complaining or quitting.

It will not be easy but it will be worth it. The time will pass one way or another, the only difference is where you can end up at the end.

2. You Can’t Be Willing to Fail

If you want to succeed at something, you have to eliminate the possibility of failure from your vocabulary, you must not be willing to fail, period.

You have to push through the hard times, find a way, and do whatever it takes to achieve success. If you think you are going to fail, keep going because it is often after our greatest failures that we achieve our greatest triumphs.

3. Focus on One Thing

We live in a world that is over connected and over stimulated, a world where we are constantly seeing the success of other men in different fields while we struggle in our own.

But what you have to realize is that the grass is never greener, if you want to succeed, you have to pick one thing and stick with it and be unwilling to give up at it.

That is the pathway to success.
