What words of advice and encouragement would you give to someone just starting out in HR?

So often I hear people comment that they chose HR because they love people. But, to be successful in HR, it can't just be about the people. Your job is to help the organization win by improving the employee experience at all levels. The goal is more than making people happy, it's helping organizations and people succeed.
