Not because you have to, but because you want to.

Be nice to people and help them to achieve whatever they want. Not because it's “cool” and you have to but because you want to.

Life is not a competition, we can all make it.

“People will forget what you said, they will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” — Maya Angelou

Every PRO was once an amateur and every expert was once a beginner. Bear in mind where did you come from and how did you get what you have now. The journey is not easy and there are always some obstacles ahead of you. But you learn to overcome them by becoming better every day.

Being nice is a basic skill everyone should have.

Treat people with a respect and listen to what they have to say. They are often backed by their insecurities and fear of failure. Too many times pointing out on their weaknesses instead of strengths.

Help them to improve their skills, build back the confidence or open new doors. Let them see the opportunities from a different angle and show them a completely new perspective.

“Stand up for what is right, even if you stand up alone. Strong people stand up for themselves, stronger people stand up for others.”

Push people to dream big and work on their goals. Impossible is nothing. It only means that the solution has not been found yet. I believe everyone has their own set of skills and something they are good at.

Lift them up because you care and then watch them succeed.

Or you might eventually end up at the top and find out that it's lonely there.
