I want to thank the person who said I wasn't good enough

When I was in my early 20’s trying to find my way in the world, I told the wife of my boss at the time that I wanted to be successful in some way and she tossed her head back laughed and said I’ll never amount to anything so there’s no point trying.

It felt like she had punched me in the stomach and it hurt deeply, but strangely enough I didn’t hate her, I only felt pity. Of course there was a bit of the ‘let me show you lady’ and that gave me the motivation when I needed to achieve something.

So whenever I got nominated or won a radio award, I used to think of her comments. When I took the risk to quit a secure job to start my own business, her words would come to mind and as I signed copies of my the Frog and The Well books, such as Follow Your heart, I’d smile and wonder what she is doing now.

I know how much words like that can hurt and crush a person’s dreams and self esteem, so I’ve made it my life’s work to inspire and support people wherever I can and Follow Your Heart is part of that ongoing journey.

So to the lady that told me I wouldn't amount to anything, I thank you from the bottom of my heart because you inspired me to help and inspire others.
