Hello there 👋🏾,
I trust your week is off to a good start? Btw, here’s a friendly reminder that success doesn’t happen by chance. Those you admire didn’t get there by mistake or luck. Every successful individual gets to where they are by doing “something(s),” and it’s high time you start looking into “those things” they did and learn/plan your way. It would help if you worked structurally hard, and that’s just the hard truth 😉.
