The Myth of the Big Break

How many times have we seen a story about a successful person who talks about the big break they got that sent them on their way to fame and fortune? Too many times.

Why too many? Because the big break is largely a myth.

For every person who got that lucky break, there are a thousand others who worked hard, day-by-day, project-by-project, and built their own path to success.

If you’re looking for your next job or career this is especially important. Don’t wait for that perfect job to land in your lap.

Work for it.

Network, volunteer, intern, do pro bono work. Build your next career by putting in the work day-by-day. If you stop waiting for your big break you just may find yourself creating one.
