Life Rule #53 -Give Up Believing In The “Magic Bullet.”

Overnight success is a myth. Successful people know that making small continuous improvement every day will be compounded over time and give them desired results. That is why you should plan for the future, but focus on the day that’s ahead of you, and improve just 1% every day.
