You’re not winning the lottery

It turns out that magic lamps and genies are not real. Nor is the Tooth Fairy.

The good news is that the Boogie Man and the Fraud Police are not real either.

You’re not going to be drafted by the NBA. The New York Times isn’t putting your book on their list of bestsellers. And someone isn’t around the corner waiting for your next mistake.

So, go. Do good work anyway. Knowing that the stress isn’t there of having to manage a life gone viral. Knowing that there is still room to make a difference to someone. Even if that someone isn’t everyone.
