My translation: Work yourself to the bone, that's your lottery ticket.
Everyone will try the same (because I told them, too), and if you don't win, you get burnout. If you do win, you have a chance at larger success.
That might sound like a bad deal but the important thing is that your employer gets a lot more work out of you then they paid for, and that's a really good deal!
