Surround yourself with people who challenge you to go higher, not anyone who pulls you down and convinces you to settle where you are.
Don't worry about your haters. God will bless you inspite of them. Nobody can curse what God has blessed.
Even though I can't fully describe how draining it is to know your worth and have to succumb to small minds in the process of being a bigger person or turning a blind eye until you're a disgruntled employee...
Believing in your skills and talents are keys to great success... no one can take that away!
