I have discovered the secret to success. Are you ready for it?
There is no such thing as a secret to success. Success comes as the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from miss-steps. When we are open to be flexible, are grateful for where we are right here and right now, and are willing to swallow our pride and receive humbly, doors open wide.
In an age where new digital platforms are quite literally creating jobs out of thin air and where you can make money on your phone and in your pajamas, “working hard” is taking on a new meaning. Although many of us are grateful for the flexibility and remote work is trendy, there is also a danger of forgetting the fact that real, satisfying success is more often than not forged through fires, diligence, and a flexible spirit.
Even in a culture today where working hard doesn’t have the same meaning as even a decade ago, and digital platforms are transforming the job market, remember that success is earned and nothing will ever substitute for a good, old fashioned hustle.
