1] Don’t be in a rush. Stop and enjoy life when you can instead of always rushing to do something especially if it can wait.
2] Being successful doesn’t mean you have to be the first person to finish or find a cure.
3] Hard work and dedication can bring you closer to achieving your dreams. Chase after them because it’s something you want, not because it’s what someone else wants you to. After all, this is your story live it how you please.
4] Work and life balance are important to have. Granted some projects at work may need you to have more effort but do your best to maintain the balance.
5] The people that matter most won’t mind what you do for a career, where you live, how you dress. They enjoy you as a person.
6] People change which is fine because you’ll change too. Don’t be surprised when you look back and see a different person. Embrace the change for the better.
7] You face your problems alone. Yes you may have people around to support you but ultimately you are going to have to come face to face with your own problems.
8] Value what your parents say. One day they won’t be around to tell you the right words to make you feel better. Cherish all the time you have to spend with them. After all if it weren’t for them you wouldn’t be here reading this post.
9] Credit Cards aren’t bad. You need to be in debt in order to establish credit. Use them for your daily transactions and pay it off at the end of the month. *Make sure you research the type of credit card to suit your needs with low APR%. Don’t spend beyond your means.*
10] There is never a point in your life when you know just exactly what to do. That’s okay. You don’t always have to have a solution for every issue.
“When you become a teenager, you step onto a bridge. You may already be on it. The opposite shore is adulthood. Childhood lies behind. The bridge is made of wood. As you cross, it burns behind you.”
