Don’t listen to those who say, “It’s not done that way.” Maybe it’s not, but maybe you’ll do it anyway. Don’t listen to those who say, “You’re taking too big a chance.”
Most important, don’t listen when the little voice of fear inside you rears its ugly head and says, “They’re all smarter than you out there. They’re more talented, they’re taller, blonder, prettier, luckier, and they have connections.”
I firmly believe that if you follow a path that interests you, not to the exclusion of love, sensitivity and cooperation with others, but with the strength of conviction that you can move others by your own efforts, and do not make success or failure the criteria by which you live, the chances are you’ll be a person worthy of your respect.
