If you want to succeed, it doesn't matter what you do, but how you do it.
It doesn't matter if you work in banking, construction, IT or fashion. Or what the economic situation is like. If you're exceptional, you'll be fine.
Exceptional people are those who choose a single path and do not deviate one centimeter from it. They don't stop learning and concentrate on their weak points until they become their strong points.
Exceptional people are never satisfied and never stop. There are no excuses for them. So they go where no one can go. That's why we all want to work with them and how they become.
Do you want to be extraordinary? Are you willing to pay the price?
