    Leaving it Better

    Always do more than what’s expected of you. Leave the world a better place than you found it. What is expected of you, is doing the bare minimum. What would the world be like if everyone were to only do the minimum in their personal lives or work lives? Challenge yourself to exceed expectations whenever possible. Do not overextend yourself. But, if you can offer a little bit more than expected, you can leave an indelible mark on someone.

    Moving Forward

    Do not fall in love with your story. When someone tells a story, they know how to elicit a specific response, and they often tell it differently depending on the audience. No one else is as in love with your story as you are. You are the author of your own story, and you have the opportunity to tell it in a way that allows you to make peace with the past by telling the story of how it catalyzed you and how it made you better. Use your story to move yourself forward.
