Things You Learn in Your 20’s

-If you’re smiling right now, you’re doing something right.

-It’s not so much what you say that counts, it’s how you make people feel.

-The biggest mistake you can make is doing nothing because you’re scared to make a mistake.

-No matter how it turns out, it always ends up just the way it should be.  Either you succeed or you learn something.  Win-Win.

-Freedom is the greatest gift.  Self-sufficiency is the greatest freedom.

-If you catch yourself working hard and loving every minute of it, don’t stop.  You’re on to something big.  Because hard work ain’t hard when you concentrate on your passions.

-It’s not about getting a chance, it’s about taking a chance.  You’ll rarely be 100% sure it will work.  But you can always be 100% sure doing nothing won’t work.  Sometimes you just have to go for it!

-Complaining is like slapping yourself for slapping yourself.  It doesn’t solve the problem, it just hurts you more.

-The one with nothing to hide is always the one left standing tall.

-You can press forward long after you can’t.  It’s just a matter of wanting it bad enough.

-There’s a big difference between knowing and doing.  Knowledge is basically useless without action.

-In work and business, when they need you more than you need them, you have succeeded.

-Everything that happens in life is neither good nor bad.  It just depends on your perspective.

-We are all weird.  And life is weird.  And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we call it love.

-True friendship and true love do sustain the tests of distance and time.

-You can’t change who you are.  You can only change what you know and how you apply this knowledge.

-It is okay to be angry.  It is never okay to be cruel.

-Even when you feel like you have nothing, someone else likely has far less.  Find them and help them.  You’ll see why.

-Having a thousand credentials on the wall will not make you a decent human being.  But genuinely helping one person everyday will. Remember, change happens for a reason.  Roll with it.  It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.
