Don’t get disheartened. If you get disheartened, it’s over.
Don’t ever underestimate the value of enthusiasm. Sometimes it’ll be all you have.
Perception is reality. What’s ‘true’ often doesn’t matter because of what’s ‘perceived’.
Understand the value of time. Life ends up being really short, no matter how long you live. You can recover money, you can rebuild houses, you can re- buy glassware, but you can’t get back time.
Self-control is a finite resource. You can only ask so much of yourself each day. You’ll snap or warp or splinter if you ask too much.
You have a limited capacity to direct yourself a certain way. It’s worth considering where that directive capacity goes every day.
Run, wherever you are. Running is the best way to reset, to overcome jetlag, to see a new place and to feel good about the world.
Listen to your body. You might feel like you’ve found a loophole, but if you’re not honest, your body will catch up with you soon enough.
Control your inputs. Not just what you eat and drink (though this will have a profound impact), control what you read, what you watch, what you listen to, what notifications you allow on your phone, where you spend your time, who you spend it with. Guard your gates with care.
Learn to be yourself -“Always believe in yourself.” Always be yourself. Never try to hide who you are. The only shame is to have shame.
Always stand up for what you believe in and most importantly, do your thing and never apologize for being you.
Always question what other people tell you.
Never regret the past; it’s a waste of time. There’s a reason for everything, every mistake, every moment of weakness, every terrible thing that has happened to you. Grow from it.
The only way can ever get the respect of others is when you show them that you respect yourself
Choose your battles wisely – After all, life isn’t measured by how many times you stood up to fight. It’s not winning battles that makes you happy, but it’s how many times you turned away and chose to look into a better direction. Life is too short to spend it on warring. Fight only the most, most, most important ones let the rest go.
Don’t let past relationships and old mistakes ruin your future. Scars remind us of where we have been, not where we are headed.
Don’t compare your life with others’ you have no idea what their journey is about.
Don’t be so hard on yourself for not having it together all the time, for not knowing all the answers. You don’t always have to be sure of who you are, otherwise there’ be nothing left to discover
