One of the biggest commonalities I’ve seen in businesses that reach pinnacle success is that at some point in their lifespans they had what many consider to be a “big break.”
The way I interpret this is that at some point they got finally got a seat at the table they’d been trying to sit at.
For example, an actor finally gets the part they needed to break through.
The salesman finally lands a monster account that gives them the credibility they need to take it to the next level.
The Youtuber finally has a video go viral which starts off an amazing growth cycle.
In rare cases that seat is gained by an overnight success or “luck” as many would call it.
But in just about all cases, that “overnight success” was obtained from years of planning and consistency.
The successful businesses set up a strategy and executed on that strategy day after day, month after month, year after year.
So what seemed like a break was really just something they eventually had coming to them.
How fast you get that break is usually a result of just how much you want to put into that plan and how hard you want to work it.
