This is one of my favorite pieces of advice to give others. When you are worrying about the things you can change and the things you can work on, you improve. When you are concerned with what others are doing and what others are receiving, you are going nowhere. It is the difference between watching a show on TV or being in the show. Work at your craft and constantly find ways to improve if you want to succeed. Your talents may be overlooked for a moment or two, but true talent can’t be hidden for long.
