People on top worry what will happen when they are no longer there, the rest of us worry will we ever get there.
Why worry nobody cared when you were getting those rejection letters.
When you were living on one mill a day.
Why worry when you’ve finally starting making progress.
My advice, succeed and don’t be accepting some people’s definition of success.
Define it yourself.
Mine is a success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal so if there something to worry about let it be your progress.
One last thing.
Never discourage anyone who makes progress, no matter how slow. — Plato
