“I start early, and I stay late, day after day, year after year, it took me 17 years and 114 days to become and overnight success.” -Lionel Messi
I do not know many people who are entrepreneurs, but I do know one successful entrepreneur and his story. I know how much he had lost and won in his entreprenurial journey. He is the owner of one of the most successful late night restaurants in Mumbai, named Knight Chef, feeding the crowd of millions in the city of dreams. When the whole city is lost in the dreams and hopes to have a better start the next day, this person awakes the whole night and serves the nightowls the tastiest meals they can ever have.
There is nothing like an overnight success. It is the hard work of years and years that people do to achieve what they want in their lives and turn their dreams into reality. It is their will and determination to say NO to the luxuries and distractions and focus on the things what matter most to them.
People just say “I can’t be like him, he/she just got lucky”, but what people do not see is that it is not just the luck, but the hard work, the sleepless nights, the empty bank accounts and the amount of stress he/ she has taken to reach the heights of success and to become what he/she is today.
“In the end, your success will speak for itself” – Patrick Bet-David
