The necessary pain of hard work

Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you couldn’t.

Other people’s judgments

When you spend too much time concentrating on everyone else’s perception of you, or who everyone else wants you to be, you eventually forget who you truly are. Don’t fear the judgments of others; you know in your heart who you are and what’s true to you.
