Emily Bennington describes what she terms "red light moments".
54 will be broke
36 will be dead
5 will continue to work because they can’t afford to retire
4 will be financially independent
1 will be wealthy
So a quick review of the numbers will tell you that only 5% of the population becomes economically successful – and a mere 1% become rock stars.
My guess is that “rock stars” (i.e. the best of the best) are those who don’t shy away from their red light moments. On the contrary, they embrace them. They do the hard work on the back end that makes everything we see on the front end look easy.
