Nothing but the Best


“My grandfather once told me that there were two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was much less competition.” – Indira Gandhi 

When you have done your best work and know the purpose in what is now done and why it has been done in a certain manner, there is no critic you can count on to tell you whether you have succeeded. You are the only one who knows where you have come from. The critic can only see where you are from their vantage-point and offer a partial judgment, couched in whatever style and background is their forte.  

Success is not a thing to allow others to bestow upon you. You must know the value of your investment and claim your success for yourself. When you have done your best work, welcome and appreciate the opportunity for review – good, bad, and/or indifferent. Take only what you can use to lighten the load  – and walk on. 

Be it accolades or rotten tomatoes, allow closure. Keep your eyes on the prize. The project may be complete, but you are not done living. And when you are constantly delivering your best on all fronts, you know the past is done – and the best is yet to come.
