It is easy to buy into the idea that achieving success will happen quickly if we put in a lot of effort for a short period of time.
Technology today has proven that it’s possible, and that age or experience is not a pre-requisite for achieving extraordinary success. A few examples of people how have achieved tremendous success relatively early in life include:
- Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook.
- Dustin Moskovitz, the co-founder of Asana, a project management software for business.
- Nathan Blecharczyk, Brian Chesky and Joe Gebbia, the co-founders of Airbnb, which lists people’s homes or apartments for rental stays.
There are many other names that could be added to this list, however one important thing to recognise is that such extraordinary success is the exception, not the norm. For the majority of people, success often comes with age, life experience and a greater level of self-awareness.
