10 Insanely Easy Steps to Becoming an Overnight Success

September 28, 2021
  1. Find something you are passionate about doing.
  2. Set a big goal for your idea. i.e., I will quit my day job and do this full-time.
  3. Harness your natural talent to your drive to reach your goal.
  4. Make connections to people who have succeeded in the space you are passionate about.
  5. Start practicing, creating, producing, shipping that thing.
  6. Learn from your mistakes. Every successful person has made lots of mistakes, pick yourself up and try again.
  7. Create a website, Instagram, Facebook page, business card, and other marketing, telling the world who you are and what you create. 
  8. Launch a giveaway to spread the word about your new venture!
  9. Take some time off; you earned it!
  10. Work at it every day for 1 (2, 5, 10, 15, 30) years until one day it looks like you did it overnight. Still, it was years of sweat and stress combined with your unique backstory, mixed with the connections you forged and the unique gifts that you honed, combined with reading hundreds of books and articles that made you an “overnight” success – because there is no substitute for hard work, experience, and growth. It is never too late to start, but start today because the “overnight” success is rarer than the lottery winner.
