Are-you-looking-for-theWe all want to be an overnight success.

Sometimes, when I’m dreamy and delusional, I allow myself to go to a place where all of my aspirations come true in a moment, as if a fairy godmother (or Oprah) magically grant my wishes.

But of course, it doesn’t happen like that.

Success comes inexorably.

It comes by turning up every day.

It comes by doing the work that no-one else wants to do.

It comes by persisting when you feel like giving up.

It comes by moving step by step, undaunted and unstoppable.

And it comes by never giving up on your dreams, no matter how long they take to come to fruition.

So let me ask you, are you looking for the quick fix that will launch you into the limelight overnight, or are you making inexorable progress towards your goals?
