3. The job, the party, the relationship and knowing when to leave is important. Learn when to walk away when things don't go the way you want. Sticking around for people who don't appreciate you and take away from your life is not good for your health. Walk away.
4. If it breaks your heart, it'll fix your vision. When something doesn't work learn from it. If a relationship isn't working, look for problems and try to fix them. Something breaking is a way to fix yourself and how you look at things.
5. Be humble enough to not let praise go to your head but proud enough to not let insults go to your heart. Taking things at heart will only hurt you there don't take things personally.
6. No response is a response. Learn to listen to it. When a person does not create time for you, catch on quickly and move on. Listen to what they say and think about you and think for yourself.
7. At any minute, someone can come along and change your life. That person is you. Don't wait for people to change your life.
