Tell the truth.
Do not do things that you hate.
Pursue what is meaningful, not what is expedient.
If you have to choose, be the one who does things, instead of the one who is seen to do things.
Imagine who you could be, and then aim single-mindedly at that.
Do not allow yourself to become arrogant or resentful.
Work as hard as you possibly can on at least one thing and see what happens.
Dress like the person you want to be.
Be precise in your speech.
Do not transform your wife into a maid.
Be graceful in spite of your suffering.
1. You never really know how much the people around you are hurting. You could be standing next to someone who is completely broken inside and you wouldn’t even know it. So never deprive someone of hope; it might be all they have. And remember that there are two ways to spread light in this world: You can either be a flame of hope, or a mirror that reflects it. Be one of the two every chance you get.
2. The more you give, the more you receive is a universal truth that applies to way more than charitable giving. It literally applies to everything. It has been described as the boomerang effect and that term is very fitting because you literally get back everything you put out there. It doesn’t matter if it is kindness, generosity, love, anger, frustration, money, etc. It all comes right back to you.
