If you want to be successful, let no one ever tell you what to do. If someone has to tell you what your goals are, then the only goals you have belong to someone else. If someone has to tell you what your responsibilities are, then you’re not doing enough to be as successful as you might be. If someone has to remind you of what you need to do, you may be failing them … but more importantly, you’re failing yourself. If someone has to tell you what to do, then you’re squandering the gift of being human and wasting your initiative, your resourcefulness, your creativity and your determination. Learn from everyone. Seek out good advice. But let no one ever tell you what to do.
