The stories of ambitious twenty and thirty-somethings changing the world and becoming deliriously rich , are intoxicating to a new generation. But almost all of these stories are myth. That’s the bad news. The good news is that the real stories behind the rise of today’s most successful entrepreneurs, though lesser known, are far more interesting. From Atlassian to Google, to Apple and Facebook and from Cochlear to Tesla and many more, a combination of obsessive drive, ruthless ambition, adaptability - and a whole lot of great timing and luck - are the baseline criteria for success. Put aside those fantasies of a “balanced lifestyle”. Forget those hockey-stick charts of continuous revenue and employee growth. The journey you are beginning is more akin to high a speed game of snakes and ladders. To stay in the game, you are going to have to want it bad. To succeed, you will  have to create some new rules along the way.
