Humanity will never have a shortage dissenters. Don’t get bent out of shape over normalcy. And, don’t fret over the schemes of people who do not yet know better. You’re bigger than that. You know that.
The best retort is results. The best way to gain respect is results. The best way to convince people you’re right is the size of your wallet—because the secret to wealth is only doing what makes money rather than only doing what squanders money. If it doesn’t win, winners won’t care either way. Neither should you. Let all forms of failure fall away.
