“Greatness comes from humble beginnings; it comes from grunt work. It means you're the least important person in the room--until you change that with results." Ryan Holiday
Nothing is owed to you. Once you start feeling that way, it's impossible to improve.
Most people confuse results with time or even experience. How long you can stay somewhere has nothing to do with the impact you've had in influencing positive change.
The most exceptional people I know keep a beginners attitude no matter what they've accomplished. Results are a byproduct of their continued growth and doing what is necessary day in and day out.
Yes, it's boring. Yes, at times, it's frustrating. And not being recognized for all the extra work you do is difficult at times.
But one day, it starts to become worth it. Maybe a year, maybe five, perhaps even ten years down the line it will be worth it.
My advice is keep going, stay a beginner, and earn it
"Gotta try to stay above water, y'know?
Just stay busy, stay working.
Puff told me, like, the key to this joint
The key to staying on top of things
Is treat everything like it's your first project.
Like it's your first day, like back when you was an intern
Like, that's how you try to treat things, just stay hungry."
