“Only a mediocre person is always at his best. ”
W. Somerset Maugham

You don’t have to pay rent

to have more room for improvement

when others are hell bent

formulating how best to criticize

your tragic flaws and bring you down to size

do not resent

strive to be better

than you are at present

  1. The only thing I would add to this from experience is about investment. Simply, only invest in critics whom are invested in you (professionally, personally, etc).
