Your first victory is different from your first break.
Your first victory will be quiet. You won’t receive the red carpet treatment. But you can be proud because you likely changed one person. (Maybe even yourself.)
Then, you get to do it again.
Building a body of work. Little by little, drip by drip, getting more attention and more trust with each interaction you make.
Until your first break.
You hit the tipping point. You’ve crossed the chasm. You’ve reached the masses.
Once you’ve changed one person, then you can change ten. Yet, most of us wrongly think it’s the other way around.
