Dear 18-year-old self:
It’s not your college degree or your grades that will define you.
It’s not your intelligence, either.
And it’s certainly not your paycheck or your wealth.
What defines you as a human, a professional, and a member of society are just two things that matter above all else:
- your ACTIONS
- and your WORDS
And what dictates your actions and your words?
- your HABITS
Your HABITS are what define you as a human because they dictate your most high-frequency ACTIONS and WORDS.
So, I humbly suggest you ask yourself about your HABITS;
- are they motivated by kindness and positivity? #Happy
- are they constructive and conducive to continual improvement? #Humble
- are they difficult to maintain and require investment? #Hungry
Those are the HABITs that make us better humans than the day before. Those are the HABITs that will define you. #BestTodayBetterTomorrow
Your 48-year-old self.
