Keep your calendar filled. Exercise every day. Keep producing. Be prolific. Be assertive despite the awkwardness. Build a vast, outstanding portfolio. Don’t stop creating, and do it with a playful urgency, unattached to the outcome.
I know that there will always be things to be afraid of, and setbacks are inevitable. But I also know that they mustn’t cloud my mind to the point that I feel unable to do anything about it.
…you weren’t challenged. And if you weren’t challenged, you weren’t going places. That’s the kind of mantra I fed myself.
