Key Takeaways

  • Take a step back. Take a pause before responding to someone else’s aggression. Maybe they’re having a bad day and it’s not about you. 
  • Don’t overthink it. Sometimes it’s better to get things done than to be a perfectionist. Don’t let it keep you from moving forward. 
  • Share your passion. Chances are someone else is passionate about the same thing you are. Put yourself out there, and you’ll probably be rewarded.

For some, success can be a long road, and for others, it can happen overnight. The quality that both these people have in common is staying true to who they are, no matter how long it takes.
