Misconceptions about Success (1)



Author/entrepreneur Seth Godin says: ‘We need to stop shopping for lightning bolts. You don’t win an Olympic medal with a few weeks of intensive training. There’s no such thing as an overnight opera sensation. Great companies [and great churches] and here let me add great relationships, don’t spring up overnight. . . every great thing has been built in exactly the same way: bit by bit, step by step, little by little.’

There are no shortcuts; you must be willing to pay the price.

    1. Hello Peter, thank you for reading my post and leaving this comment, which is appreciated. Whether small or great, every enterprise has to start from a foundation. There does seem to be an attitude with some folks that we can begin at the top. I blame our culture of instant gratification! 😁

        Instant gratification? The longer it takes the seed to grow, the longer its return!
