"Success Isn't Like Cake"

Patrick Allan , Gawker Media

When you're working hard to be the best you can be at something new, you can sometimes lose patience. Nicole Antoinette of A Life Less Bullshit says, "Success isn't like cake - there's no such thing as someone grabbing the very last piece."

There's nothing wrong with being a beginner. It may get frustrating because we constantly hear about overnight success stories, but those aren't the norm. You have to start with the basics and keep working hard to get where you want to be. There are people out there already doing what you want to do, but that's okay! You can still do what you want and become the best, but you have to start with the basics.
