16. Your fears can tell you much more about what you do want than they tell you what you don’t.

18. Anything you say can work for or against you, and what will determine that is your tone.

19. Genuinely successful people don’t have to convince other people that they are very successful.

20. No, your career will not wake up and tell you it doesn’t love you one day, but your job, and the people in it, are under absolutely no obligation to love you in the first place – you are the only person responsible for that.
