    Success + fast don't go hand in hand. You have to work hard, be consistent, set clear defined goals and focus.

    I don't really mind, as long as I enjoy it and it's successful.

    Then you're already failing. Successful people, among many other things, have a very clear idea of what success looks like to them. How do you expect to be successful when you don't even know what you want?

    Contrary to popular belief, fast and success can go together. Most people mistake fast for easy though. Take get rich quick schemes for example. They claim you can "earn £100,000 a month for 4 hours of work". This is not get rich quick. This is get rich easy. Get rich quick is accomplishable in 5 years but never going to be easy. You can build a company that is bringing in £1,000,000 per year within 5 years. People have done (and have done so much more). But if fast to you means next year then it probably won't happen (but it has before). Unless sucess means something you can accomplish in a year. You can spend 10 years working your way up a company and be hugely successful there. Both can be done in 20 or 50 years as well.

    If you're serious then you need to act serious. Being desperate won't get you there. Wanting it won't get you there. Not caring as long as you enjoy it and you're successful certainly won't get you there. I recommend starting by reading books and learning how other people become successful. I'd recommend Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss, which shares information from over 100 successful people.
