I had scribbled this for an academic speech the previous year. I wanted this bring inspiration to many more children and adults. So here is my advice in five points.
THINK for yourself – To live a fulfilling life, you have to think independently. This is how you can create a world of limitless possibility. Question everything! Itʼs OK to listen to “conventional wisdom” and advice that people give you, but YOU have to ultimately form your own opinions. This is what the best LEADERS do, whether they are leading people, a family, or their own lives.
Always maintain your INTEGRITY – In the end, you have only 2 things: your memories and your name. And your name is with which your reputation lives on. By keeping your promises and doing the RIGHT THING, you will sleep soundly at night and have peace of mind.
Find your PASSION and give 100% – Life is very short. You donʼt have much time, so make the most of it by doing what you LOVE and giving your ALL. Itʼs not easy to find your passion. Maybe the search will be painful and long, but you will find it at some point. And the feeling of satisfaction knowing you have given 100% brings tremendous contentment.
Learn compassion. We start life with a very selfish outlook — we want what we want. But compassion is about realizing we are no more important than everyone else, and we arenʼt at the center of the universe.
Never stop learning. Even if you just learn a little something a day, it will add up over time immensely.
I hope you guys be inspired, never stop and always aim higher. Wishing every single one of you all the best.
