Sometimes, an image speaks much louder than words could ever do.
Case in point, this picture of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos in 1999, in his shitty little office, with a spray painted Amazon.com piece of paper/sign, clutter, and nothing glamorous.
Fast forward to 2018, and Jeff is the richest man in the world. According to ZDNet he ended 2017 worth $99 Billion. BILLION. 99! BILLION! Now, Jeff has gone full badass bald, not the “I’m balding, bald.” He works out. He looks like a guy about to save the world from an alien invasion. And he’s proof that grinding pays off.
Make this your year.
From that office in 1999, to this…
