Q&A Friday #46: What’s Some Of The Best Life Advice You’ve Ever Received?
Question: “What is some of the best life advice you have ever received?” — President_Friedman
Answer: Off the top of my head, here are a few (Some of these are paraphrased):
— Find a way to make a career out of something that you love doing so much that you’d do it for free.
— Happiness and fun aren’t the same thing.
— Before you get upset about something, ask if you’ll even remember it in five years. If the answer is “no,” is it really worth getting upset over?
— “In life, never spend more than 10% of your time on the problem and spend at least 90% of your time on the solution.” — Tony Robbins
— If you can’t afford it, you don’t deserve it.
— “A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow.” — George Patton
— “Nothing in life has any real meaning except the meaning you give it.” — Tony Robbins
— The key to being a good conversationalist isn’t what you say, it’s paying attention to what other people have to say.
— Don’t beat yourself up for everything that happens to you, but act as if everything that happens to you is your fault. If you don’t take responsibility for it, you can’t do anything about it.
— 90% of being a success is simply out working and out preparing everyone else and the last 10% is a dogfight in the free enterprise system.
