“You’ll never work, you’re not pretty enough, you’re not good enough”

That’s what Academy Award winning actress Sally Field was told when she decided she wanted to move out of television and into the movies.

sally field“I had done three television series before I was 25 years old and I had two children by then, and I said ‘I’m not doing television anymore. I have to stop.’ And they said, ‘Well, that’s foolish. You’ll never work, you’re not pretty enough, you’re not good enough,’ and I said, ‘You’re fired.’ Then my business manager said the same thing and I said, ‘You’re fired.’ I just fired everybody. Then I left my husband. You know, I was like, ‘Out, all of you,'” Field said. “I couldn’t afford to have those voices near me that said, ‘You can’t do this, you’re not good enough,’ because I have too many voices inside of me that say that.” (From ABC News)

Well said Sally!
