The Only Thing That Counts

“The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated.”

  1. Great one to remember, but it is hard to block the fear. This has been my first year of working for myself and I’ve constantly been going around in my head, “You’re not successful because you’re not making lots of money.”

    But I’ve invested my heart into this past year – in my relationship with my husband, family, in my work, in my everyday interactions with people – and I feel successful for that. F*ck the naysayers!
