Real Truth About Astonishing Achievement Overnight

It takes hours of practice to achieve overnight success.


Achievement overnight may have formed part of your past dreams? Many people, myself included, can be given to flights of fancy about overnight achievement.

This article may burst the overnight achievement bubble. Consequently, be encouraged to replace it with a far more realistic philosophy.

General Overnight Success Experience.

Start with the following:

Luis E. Romero wrote in the above:

“I have realized that one of the most common obstacles in becoming successful is the unconscious wish for overnight success and having it all”.

He went on to write:

“Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook FB +0%, or Justin Bieber, pop music icon, just to name two, did not become successful overnight”.

To these we could add Elon Musk and Abraham Lincoln just to consider four high achievers:

These four high achievers dedicated years to learning and perfecting their craft.

That is the truth of it.

It seems that overnight achievement is mostly just a dream.

VIA @MARIEFORLEO made famous the following:

If you want to be an overnight success, you need to be an everyday hustler“.

That is it.

Outstanding achievement generally comes from a “blood sweat and tears” approach and not overnight miracles”.

Ryan Kahn, Muse Coach wrote:

“Many of us still hang on to the belief that overnight success is a real possibility—if only we could find the right idea, the right contacts, the right job, the right approach.

Truth is that instant rags-to-riches scenario is the exception, not the rule.

A successful career will usually require a lot of grunt work before that final sprint of achievement gets set into motion”.

In reality, we are more impressed when we hear about people who’ve worked hard and been toughened by the school of hard knocks.

As your experience deepens you gain the skills and stamina necessary to do a great job once you get there.

Ecommerce Overnight Success Experience

E-commerce has enormous potential if you’re willing to put in the work–but it won’t propel you to fortune and fame in one day.

Sadly, we live in a world wanting instant gratification

We love the idea of sudden achievement because it skips the hard part: The work.

It seems that the only way to achieve success in life is to work hard and learn from your failures”

If we want a chance of having it all we simply must give it our all.

Carolyn Gregoire The Huffington Post said:

“The road to success is a marathon, not a sprint. The idea of overnight achievement has become a prevalent cultural myth. In reality, success is less of a quick hit and more of a long haul.

There’s a lot of truth to the “success is an iceberg” cliché.

The tip of the iceberg, which rises out of the water, is the part that people see.

But underneath and invisible is a huge mass of ice that had to be built in order for the tip to rise up to visibility.

Successful people don’t just get it right immediately — they “fail up”.

There seems to be no argument that hard work is an essential ingredient to great success.

Success is a journey, not a destination,The doing is often more important than the outcome.”

Be someone who tries hard, dedicates time and talent to reach a goal, and achieves a dream

One becomes an achiever through developing the habits of success.

Try saying “I am a success because I work hard, strive to be better every day, and receive rewards commensurate with my efforts.

The strategy that works over and over for successful people is the Domino Strategy.

“When you see someone who has a lot of knowledge, they learned it over time.
IF you see someone who has a lot of skills, they developed them over time.
Perhaps you see someone who has done a lot, they accomplished it over time.
Occasionally you see someone who has a lot of money, they earned it over time.”

The real key here is the sequence. Creating a plan to get 10,000 customers is great, but your initial step should be to get one customer, not 10,000.

The domino theory in practice. One successful small action after another

And, to escape the treadmill of disappointment, start using the Domino Strategy.

Above all have the patience to stick with it.


We may have grown up dreaming of overnight achievement. The reality is quite different. Success is usually preceded by years of disciplined effort. Often ten, fifteen, twenty or more years of dedicated effort.

This is what the success heroes have contributed.
