People on top worry.
What will happen when they are no longer there?
The rest of us worry.
Will we ever get there?
Nobody cared when you were on the trenches getting those rejection letters.
When you were living on one meal a day.
When you’re finally making progress.
My advice, succeed.
Don’t accept some people’s definition of success.
Define it yourself.
My definition of success is it’s a progressive realization of a worthy goal.
If there something to worry about let it be your progress.
One last thing.
Never discourage anyone who makes progress, no matter how slow.
