Accept the world as it is and your place in it.
Identify yourself, your path. Define your purpose(es) in life.
Work Hard, Contribute Massively(much more than your charge – to live in high self esteem & pride), enjoy little little to experience a bit of life, & to rejuvenate, but only little because of the slippery slopes of human nature and get back to working hard.
Save & invest the fruits of your hard work and plan wisely. Don’t let things happen to you, plan for things. Emotionally, physically, financially in all ways you can. Be in control. Be strong, yet agile. Shine on.
