Do you aspire to greatness, success, and freedom? Most of us do.
And we don’t want to wait for it. We want to be successful right now. We watch as others seem to enjoy a meteoric rise to success and we want that for ourselves.
So how do you become an overnight success, and accelerate from unknown underdog to rising star status fast? Here’s the surprising way to become an overnight success:
3 Steps To Overnight Success
First, become ultra-focused on a very specific area where you can add value for others. It might a problem you can solve or a topic you’re an expert at. The bigger the problem you solve, and the more you can add value to others, the better.
Second, build a platform that allows you to communicate with others. I like a blog but you’ll want to tie it in with other things, including social media. Build a foundation of high quality content.
Third, repeat this tirelessly for months – and even years.
The Truth About Overnight Success
There is no such thing as overnight success. Any supposed overnight success that you see has been the result of years of consistently building and adding value, sticking to your main problem that you can solve and continuously and tirelessly talking about it. Over and over and over again.
Think of an iceberg – most of it is underwater and you only see a small part above the water. That small part is what people see from an overnight success but what they miss is the giant mass below the surface of hard work, adding value, persistence, and no small amount of blood, sweat, and tears.
The overnight part is actually the very end – the last few yards of the game – AFTER you’ve spent years building up a critical mass of helping, contributing, and tirelessly building. The overnight part is the sudden and dramatic rise in the media or the target market’s awareness… but to become an overnight success, you have to put in the years of work ahead of time.
