We read of winners, and somehow we convince ourselves that if we will apply the same tactics we will be winners too.
Of course, those tactics have been used by a countless number of people, in a countless number of situations, and they did not work. We just do not hear about that.
Success is fascinating. Not only because it puts us under the spotlight, but also because it makes others blind to the sweat, stains, and tears that have put us there. There is no magic recipe. Just a story that we craft among immense difficulties and that often gives us back much less than we expected.
Enjoy the journey. It’s the only way.
