Most of us love hearing about overnight success stories. The notion that success can come by in a sudden and quick fashion is just too hard to ignore. But most of these stories are misleading and it's a dangerous mindset to have. Success is built on effort, time and patience. Lots and lots of them.

When we hear about someone successful, we assume they suddenly did something right and became overnight success. In reality, they were doing good things for a long time before being finally discovered by the world.

We need patience and persistence to push through the dip in order to be successful. Nothing comes easy in life and success isn't an exception.
