There’s really only one person who matters who has to think you’re amazing.
It’s nice when others think you’re amazing because it feeds your ego. What really sucks is when someone you think is fantastic doesn’t think anything of you, or worse, finds faults to blame on you.
The only thing that can insulate you from that toxin is your belief in yourself. When you are your biggest fan, you can easily discount your detractors. You also make fast friends with those who support you.
Remain humble, curious, and empathetic, because as great as you are, you will stumble from time to time. Those who trip you should be removed from your life. Those who laugh at themselves as they fumble with you are your allies.
