Give yourself some time. Give yourself some space. Give yourself a break.
We all want to be overnight successes. We see the YouTube stars and don’t remember that Marques Brownlee, who has millions of YouTube subscribers, started a decade ago. We see Joe Rogan, with tens of millions of followers, and forget that he’s been working on his craft for decades. We see Sarah Cooper, who burst onto the comedy scene in 2020, and forget she’s been working at her craft since 2014.
Slow and steady won’t make the cut for too many motivational posters.
But I firmly believe it’s how most of us achieve whatever success we find.
There is HUGE power in persistence.
