Advice to young people

You set the direction for your life. You chose the goals and you set your own attitude.

Always, always, always look for the positives before you look at anything else. I’m not saying don’t look at anything else. I’m telling you to look at the positives first.

Be thankful, in fact, always be in a thankful mood, and cultivate gratitude.

Find your passion and never ever let it go.

If you are a student remember what Nietzsche said about the professors, whose sim is to impress you “The scholar is the herd animal in the realm of knowledge who inquires because he is ordered to, and because others have done so before him.”

Don't  believe for a second that you should ever believe that you need to hold those who think alike in high esteem of any kind.

Life is about balance. Be kind, but don’t let people abuse you. Trust, but don’t be deceived. Be content, but never stop improving yourself.
