There is no success without hard work.
It’s not branding.
It’s not marketing.
It’s not education.
It’s not networking.
It’s not talent.
No matter how many books you read, or courses you take, or people you meet.
You cannot succeed without hard work.
It’s easier if you enjoy the work. Or if you are good at it.
But even that can be a problem.
Because you can forget that it isn’t your enjoyment or your ability that enables you to succeed.
It’s the effort.
You’ve got to work at it.
