The following quote from Rachel Sklar’s article The Prettiest Girl at The Party discussing Jill Abramson’s firing this week from the New York Times struck a cord with me:
“Your power does not come from luck. Your power comes from you, and what you invest in it every day, in the work and the sweat and the giving a damn. That is what you carry around with you, even as you walk out of your fancy top job for the last time. That is what you carry into the next thing, and there will be a next thing, because you are good and because that’s what you do. That is your capital”.
A great reminder of the power that comes from a great work ethic, talent, passion and compassion.
