We live in a world that teaches us instant gratification. Every day we see stories of people who seem to have achieved a level of success so quickly. You grasp on the idea of ‘overnight sensation’ because that’s what the media sells us. It makes for a great story. It often appears that a person has come out of nowhere and is an instant success. The truth is they were hustling and grinding at their craft for a very long time before anyone took notice.
Our lives and careers are like a tree. It doesn’t bear fruit without strength in our roots. Just as a tree or any plant needs care in the beginning stages, we also need to do that in our lives. The foundation is the most important part of anything in order for you to build something solid that bears fruit in the end.
So take your time to develop and grow so that the fruit you bear is the best.
