There's no one size fits all plan for wealth or success.
We're all just ships, navigating into uncharted territory. No map. Just courage, smarts, and grit. Making order out of chaos. Finding a way.
New value — rare and useful value that people are willing to pay us for — is waiting to be discover. That's why others pay us for it. Nobody can tell us where to find that. We have to discover it on our own.
There are no shortcuts in unchartered territory.
It's why we give a certain mystique or allure to entrepreneurs who succeed. We want to believe that they knew what they were doing. That if we just read their book, use their map for our journey, it'll help us arrive in the same place.
But in the midst of it? They had no certainty where they'd arrive.
It's only after the fact that any of it made sense. Day-to-day? Chaos.
There's so many incalculable factors that go into everyone's journey. Yes, we should learn from others', but there's no map for where you're headed.
You have to chart your own.
