There are three phases in the career of a person.
In first, people work hard but not get enough pay for their hard work. Most people become habitual to this and quit the race.
And those people who survived their first stage get entry in second stage where they get enough pay for their work. Most people fell in love with this stage and quit the race.
And finally few people left, those who keep their patience. In third stage people work less and get more money. They create their assets and earn more, even while sleeping. They win the race.
