Overnight success is a myth. I'd been working since I was too young to remember, dedicating myself to the wire, but celebrity can happen overnight. GIRL ON A WIRE by Gwenda Bond
It's true, people don't get accomplished overnight. My father sent me a quote my freshman year of college.
- The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night.
Celebrity can happen overnight. All of a sudden someone's name is everywhere, their book is selling, they're making all sorts of best seller lists and everyone is talking about them. Just because we didn't hear about them yesterday, last month or last year doesn't mean they weren't working towards their goal. Fighting, struggling, feeling depressed and overwhelmed. In otherwords walking the same path we all walk.
Keep it up. Your books are coming, your celebrity may be next. But for now, keep toiling, because you will never reach success without hard work.
