1. If you want something done, don't expect people to come to you. You have to go to to them.
2. You can influence people but you can't control their actions, values, or beliefs.
3. Complaining won't get you anywhere. It's better to think of solutions to your problems.
4. What matters isn't what other people think of you; only you know your true self and no one can take that away from you.
5. You have the power to become who you want to be, you just have to be willing to put in the effort.
