“You only need the right tool to accomplish the task at hand.”

“You’re amazing! You can walk into that bar and get anyone you want.”

“It’s important to establish a bedtime routine. People underestimate how much we can get done after the sun goes down!”

“You’ll always be more successful if those around you think of you as the good guy.”

“Don’t be friends with toxic people who don’t value your privacy. They spread lies (or inconvenient truths) that could harm your reputation.”

“Put your best face forward to the rest of the world.”

“If at first you don’t succeed, try a different strategy.”

“If at first you DO succeed, then keep going, improving as you get practice.

“Give people something to remember you by, a calling card of sorts.”

“No matter how good you think you are, someone out there is killing it harder.”

“We create the story we want to tell the world and police.”
