This advice has come to me consistently, and in many moving parts, over the past 25 years via conversations with dear friends, colleagues, and former assistants: People are often under the misimpression that someone from a higher plane of power will come and pluck them out of their current circumstances, catapulting them to success. While the 'chosen one' narrative may happen once in a blue moon, the vast majority of success happens with the discipline of a daily grind, and networks of peers who lift each other up, on a regular basis, over years.
