“No man ever steps in the same river twice. For it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.” —Heraclitus
There’s no magic formula to winning. All the recipes for success famous people are preaching to you are their own and cannot be duplicated identically.
You keep talking to friends, following mentors, reading biographies, and modeling success stories all that you want. The only purpose it’ll serve is to convince you that winning is in the realm of possibility and you have a chance to get it.
You might have the map, but the terrain always changes. Even though all roads lead to Rome, the road you end up taking is the one that nobody else walked before you, and it will never be traveled again by anyone else.
Success depends heavily on your definition. Only you can define the value you can offer the world.
No one said you must be a tech billionaire to be successful. Immeasurable financial wealth is not the only qualifier for success.
Success could be doing the best job you can raising a family. It could be being the best at your craft or your profession. Honestly, you can define it whichever way you like.
Find you gift, practice your talents, live your truth, pursue mastery, and offer the best version of you to the world.
Do it your own way because no one can truthfully tell you their way is better.
