I’ve learned a lot of things much later than I would have liked.
- I’ve learned that the world is big, I am small, and every time I think I am the center of the universe, the universe finds a way to humble me.
- I’ve learned that in order to master anything in life, you have to be somewhat selfish with your time.
- I’ve learned that my parents only wanted me to succeed and to be happy — even if it meant years of conflicting beliefs.
- I’ve learned that easy roads lead to hard lessons, and hard roads lead to valuable lessons learned.
- I’ve learned real relationships take work — the best kind of work — and you should never run away from something that challenges you to grow.
- I’ve learned that the moment of “overnight success” is the result of years and years of mind-numbing, exhausting, deliberate work.
- I’ve learned you should always trust your gut first, check your work with your logic, and only do things you’re prepared to do without expecting anything in return.
- I’ve learned you should never burn a bridge, with anyone, regardless of what happened.
- I’ve learned there is no greater investment than the investment one makes in one’s self.
- I’ve learned humility is more important than self-confidence, and self-confidence is more important than admiration.
- I’ve learned the best thing money can buy you is the ability to do more generous things for more people.
- I’ve learned people are often far more capable than they know, and the vast majority just need a little positive reinforcement to get moving in the right direction.
I’ve also learned it’s never too late to make a change.
And late is always better than never.
