Hoping for overnight success!

Chris Carmichael, coach and confidant to Lance Armstrong for many years (and all of his 7 wins in the Tour de France), was talking about overnight successes in the sports field. Some of his athletes ask him how they can reach success quickly, "overnight." His words apply to all endeavors, even the practice of law.

His response:  "… So when people press me for shortcuts to success, I tell them that there really aren’t any. If you talk to the guy getting all the glory for his “overnight success,” I’m 99% sure that he doesn’t see it that way. He just sees all the work that went into finally getting it right."
