Being Aware of The Narrative Fallacy

The Narrative Fallacy makes us to see events as stories, with logical chains of cause and effect. When it comes to success, do not fall for the ‘narrative’ fallacy’ and think that great people became successful due to what happened to them, and if we emulate that, we will achieve the same result.

We need to do something extraordinary and exceptional to achieve great success, and that makes any successful person an exception, someone who did what few others were willing to do. Instead of googling for success, find what you want to do to change the world!

Anything worth doing is hard work

The initial stage of 'loving it' may be attractive, but it requires dedication and determination and many hours of work. Some parts of the work may even be hated.

It is the same for any job. It is only exciting in the beginning; the rest is just hard work.

Hard work doesn’t sell

The reason nobody says it's hard work is that no-one wants to work hard. Hard work doesn't sell. What people sell is to know the 'why'. It sells quickly while promising fast results with little work. But it isn't realistic. In the end, everything good takes time, hard work, discipline and dedication.
