1. Be who you are, all of the time. Don’t be who you are, some of the time. Don’t be who you aren’t, all of the time. Certainly don’t be who you aren’t, some of the time. Just be you. People will accept it all.
2. Surround yourself with who you want to be. Or at least who you want to be like. Consistently. And when you find yourself in situations where you aren’t surrounded by the most amazing, perhaps you’re on the outside – find a place where you’re in. Strive for only the best. That way you will always grow.
3. Learn from all situations – good, bad and otherwise. When you have an unfavourable situation, try your best to make the most of it. Every experience will have positive outcomes that allow you to grow if you let yourself see them. The hardest part is seeing them sometimes.
