If you feel like you've been beating your head against the wall trying to get ahead in life and can't figure out why you keep failing....regardless of how how hard you work, then take five minutes to read this short letter.
Here’s the deal.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret.Most of what you think it takes to get ahead in life is completely WRONG.
The general public, society and authority figures have you fooled.
They’ve lead to believe that it’s your education, talents, experience, work ethic and persistence that gets you the golden egg.
But that’s incomplete.
You see, all of those things are important but they make up only a fraction of what it takes to achieve success.
Here’s why: You could be the smartest, most educated, talented person in the world who has the ability to male miracles but if you don’t have the connections to capitalize off of those attributes then you’re in a lot of trouble.
Realize this, no one – and I mean no one – has ever achieved anything great on their own.Steve Jobs; creator of Apple (I’m sure you’ve heard of him) had “Mike” Markkula, Jr.
He was the guy that jobs convinced to lend him $250,000 to get his little known company Apple off the ground.Mark Zuckerbeg who owns Facebook had Peter Thiel who was the first investor of Facebook contributing $500,000.Oprah Winfrey had Dennis Swanson, the program director who hired her to host AM Chicago.In her own words she said "there might never have been an Oprah Show without him".
All of these people were genius visionaries and innovators who changed the world but they still needed the help of someone else.
They needed someone to do the stuff they couldn't do.
These people were their support systems.
They gave them the breaks, money and resources they needed.
And here's the reality.
