The single most important ingredient to success

Published 21 days ago • 1 min read

Hello Reader,

I've noticed this trend recently.

A lot of successful people are saying the same thing.

The single most important ingredient to their success has been

  • Patience

They've said it in different ways, like

  • Delusion
  • Stupidity
  • Putting in the reps

But they all point to this singular spirit of having patience.

Patience to do the work.
Patience to practice and improve.
Patience to continue even when it's boring.
Patience to allow the seeds they planted to bear fruit.

Yet in our modern life, instant gratification is the norm.

We expect things to move faster and faster.

And so we end up feeling more and more frustrated. We shift from one thing to another when we're impatient for results.

It's the same when building the career of our dreams. I have the benefit of hindsight - I'm turning 50 this year.

When I look back, the dots connect so obviously. But never during the time I'm on the dot!

If you're feeling like things aren't moving, maybe you just need a little patience.

It's hard, I know, when you're ambitious, you feel like you're on the clock, and running out of time.

But the whole point of it all is the journey, and what you make out of it.

Whether you enjoy yourself on this journey, burn yourself out, or worry about it non-stop.

Take a moment today to reflect back on the dots in your life and career thus far.

  • How have they connected?
  • What's worked out well?
  • How did the tough times prepare you for what you want?

I'll bet you'll see how they connected beautifully, somehow.

Talk to you again next week.

Hello Reader, I made $30,000 in my side hustles as a full-time working mother. I’m not saying this to show off, but to show it’s possible for you. It took me almost a decade to figure this out. Sure, some tactical strategies and skills took time to learn. But the main reason it took so long was how fast and willing I was to change myself. Specifically, there were 5 mental leaps I had to take. If you’re a corporate employee with dreams of making multiple income streams from your side hustle,...

Hello Reader, We're almost halfway through 2024. Have you taken a moment to review how your first half of 2024 has been? What do you want to focus on for the second half of 2024? I just completed my May review. I do a weekly and monthly review, where I ask: What went well? What didn't? What do I want to drop or change up? My goal in 2024 is to streamline and focus on doing 1 or 2 things well. This includes making friends on LinkedIn and sharing my lessons and insights about career, money, and...
