There is a pervasive obsession with individuals who seemingly come out of nowhere and rise from obscurity to the front pages of newspapers and magazines throughout the world. The media loves to profile entrepreneurs like Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, Warren Buffet, Google Founders Larry Paige and Sergey Brin and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg who seemingly rise from ordinary to extraordinary in the blink of an eye. But when you peel the onion, you find out that their overnight success took many years to accomplish. The real truth reveals that such individuals forged daily habits that made their success possible.
Daily habits are a boring topic to most. We yawn reading about individuals who spent years honing their skills every day to the point of excellence. But it is precisely those daily habits that enable individuals to rise from obscurity to overnight success. No one becomes wealthy without daily habits which provide the infrastructure for success to occur. Day after day of reading, learning, practicing and perfecting the skills that eventually result in success are the key to success.
Don’t be seduced by the overnight success story. Barring lottery winners, there simply is no such thing as the overnight success. The only true path towards creating success and wealth is in forging good daily habits. Good daily habits are your transportation system to realizing your dreams.
