Don’t let someone else make your rules

You make the rules to what success means to you.

If you didn’t get something because they gave it to someone else instead of you, that’s not a measure of your success, that’s them measuring you against their standards.

That’s not important. What’s important is that you know what you’re good at, you know what your values are, and you know what you’re worth.

You make the rules, not them.
