Here author tries to explain that you will not get anything for free. if you expect someone to come and make your dream life come true for you then it’s not going to happen, you have to go out and need to find ways to achieve your goal, as an example, you can ask many freelancers how difficult time and hard time they face finding clients, and what is the process they had to face to get clients similarly, for getting success you need to work for it, you need to work hard for that.
