If you want to become the next big success, you will need to know some history. Don’t get upset. I know that that might not be what you’re wanting to hear, but if you read about the success of some of your idols, and how they made it, it can inspire you and help you avoid some of the obstacles they went through. This applies to all professions. These success stories tell about the struggles and deceptions that they’ve endured on their way up. You also need to know some of the failures of those who never made it. And should you succeed, you need to write about your journey so others can learn from you. Everyone has a story to tell. They just need to tell it.
