The Truth Behind Overnight Success
Read or Watch
If you're an entrepreneur or content creator, you know the importance of building a following.
In May of this year, I set out to do just that - start posting consistently on YouTube and build a following on Instagram.
And it paid off - by mid-July, my Instagram following had started to spike.
Recently, however, I received a comment from someone suggesting that I must have bought my followers because there's no way I could have gained so many so quickly.
This led me to think about a book I read earlier this year, The Millionaire Fast Lane by MJ DeMarco, which talks about the illusion of quick success and how to position oneself for exponential growth.
In the book, DeMarco discusses how the media often portrays success stories without showing the process behind them.
For example, a person who becomes rich overnight in crypto or with a business will share their story, but they won't necessarily share the years of studying or research that went into it.
To the public eye, it may seem like this person just got lucky, but the reality is that they likely had a plan and consistently put in the work to achieve their goals.
DeMarco compares this to the concept of a snowball effect - while there are some vehicles or businesses that can take you to your desired destination slowly, there are others that can help you get there more quickly.
However, in order to achieve quick success, you must first put in the work to build up momentum.
So, whether you're an entrepreneur, content creator, or simply looking to achieve your goals more quickly, consider the concept of the snowball effect.
With a plan and consistent effort, you too can achieve quick success and reach your desired destination.
