Success only comes before work in the dictionary. If you go in the world of business thinking that you’re going to be plucked out of your everyday way of life and become a instant success without years of hard work then you are sorely misinformed, my friend. No one is going to spend the time to make you their protégé and groom you to take over in an important capacity if you have not shown that you deserve the opportunity.
That kind of one in a million shot is the stuff of Hollywood movies. You can never expect anything to be given to you. By anticipating your career to be a difficult progression, you’ll be prepared for the hard times and unfazed by the easy ones.
