"I do not care what people say about me. I do care about my mistakes."
The inspirational message for the self employed from this quote is:
One of the important personal strengths you should focus on in the process of self-development and becoming an entrepreneur is not to care what people think and say about you, but you do need to care about your mistakes since mistakes can have a seriously negative impact on your business, which people will take notice of. You want to come across as knowledgeable in your business and, as long as you admit to your mistakes and guard against making too many of them, your customers/clients will have no reason to think badly of you. The bottom line is that constant approval-seeking, forces you to miss out on the beauty of simply being yourself, with your own unique ideas and desires.
