Explain your strategy for life.
My strategy for life is pretty simple. Be a good person. Be the best person you can be. Don’t to anything deliberately to hurt any other person. If you hurt another person by your actions, apologize and try to make it up to them. Don’t ever be afraid to say “I’m sorry.” Those two little words will take you far in life because along the road of life, you will inevitably hurt someone. Those little words will help you mend fences and reconcile friendships.
Be true to yourself. Have integrity. Don’t do anything you’d be ashamed of doing. Have courage to take a stand, no matter how hard it may be. Sometimes it will be hard to stand up for your principles but do it anyway. Always tell the truth, even when it’s hard. It’s harder to keep your lies straight. Be kind to everyone, even to people you don’t like. Karma is real. If you are kind, kindness will come back to you. If you aren’t kind, your unkindness will come back to you double. Believe in something bigger than yourself. You are not the be all and end all of the world.
Believe in something. The Universe, God, Karma, something. Just know that you are part of the big picture. You are not the picture. Take time for others and for yourself. Don’t let work be the only thing you do. Give to others and give to yourself.
Above all, be a good person. That about covers everything. If you try to be a good person, you will do all these other things and you will have a good life. Don’t let setbacks get you down. It’s part of life. Tomorrow is another day and setbacks go away. You’re still a good person.
