What are the most valuable things everyone should know?

  • It’s ok to lie sometimes
    • When we lie to protect the feelings of the one’s we love
  • Everyone lies
    • To themselves or to others
  • We are all deluded
    • So don’t think you’re alone in any of your pain or suffering
  • Everyone is a moral relativist
    • There will come a time where we break even our most sacred rules
  • Nothing worth having comes easy
    • Otherwise it’s forgotten as soon as it’s got
  • Purpose comes from the journey. Not the destination
    • Better to be a man on a mission than a man with many completed missions
  • Laugh as much as you can with whomever you share a moment with
    • You can’t imagine how much happiness laughter brings everyone
  • Bite off more than you can chew
    • It’s how you’ll learn to chew the fastest
  • Do things that scare you
    • God it’s satisfying
  • Develop a thick skin
    • In whichever way you choose. Life is hard. You’ll need it
  • Be significant to the people you meet
    • Whether you are a chapter, paragraph, footnote or whole story in someone’s life. Touch their life for however long you are part of it
  • Be interested
    • Everyone has something you can learn from. Learn of their personal greatness
  • Experience the full range of human emotions
    • Feel extreme Love. Hate. Anger. Despair. Happiness. Guilt. See which actually add value to your life.
  • We all harbour the potential for greatness within us
    • You just have to unleash it
  • Be honest as much as you can
    • If not to others than at least to yourself
  • Be nice on your way up
    • Because otherwise it’s shitty on your way down
  • There are drains. There are radiators.
    • Stay clear of drains
