A Bit Better Everyday

How To Become An Overnight Success

By Anthony Boyd

When I was living in my basement apartment in Mount Vernon, New York aka murderville, I use to paste a bunch of affirmations on the walls.

One of these affirmations were:

“Everyday, in every way, I’m getting better and better.”

I wanted to get out of murderville — no matter how long it took.

You don’t have to take huge leaps everyday.

Small investments add up to big returns over time.

If you try to do too much at one time, you’ll burn yourself out.

How much time can you invest, daily — over 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?

This is how “overnight” success happens.
