When you hear your success being applauded, let there also sound in your ears the laughter you provoked with your failures.
– Jose Maria Escriva
I love this. In the past, I couldn’t accept praise well. I was too filled with doubt, fear, and negativity. Now, I am grateful for praise, as I am confident in myself, but almost always mention the failures that led to the success. This allows me to take pride in my successes while keeping grounded with humility.
