Take things in stride.
Don’t sweat the small stuff.
Be happy in the moment.
Accept what you can’t change.
Be strong for those around you and ask yourself how your disposition and reactions affect them.
Take on every challenge. Don’t run away.
Take ownership of everything that happens in your life. Learn it. Dissect it. Don’t be jealous or envious. Be happy for those around you.
Be different. Step outside your comfort zone.
Care about others and not just yourself.
And never, ever, no matter what quit.
Excerpt from the terrific book Every Minute is A Day by Dr. Robert Meyer and Dan Koeppel.
