Overnight Success is Hardly Overnight

Every so often there are news headlines declaring that some person or company is an "overnight success." No personal reputation or business is ever built up overnight. It's a physical and social impossibility.

Every time there is an "overnight success" reference there is a person or company that has been working for 5, 10, 15 or more years. They have had many failures over that time, learned from them, and have forged success by persevering through hardships of some kind. Success is hard work. Staying motivated through multiple failures is even harder.

Every "overnight success" is hard earned through perseverance to achieve some future dream.
