5. Be Slow To Anger. “A quick temper will make a fool of you soon enough.”

6. Stay Humble. “Showing off is the fool’s idea of glory.”

7. Train Hard In Whatever You Do. “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”

8. Live For More Than Yourself. “Real living is living for others.”

9. Focus On Endurance. “Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one”

10. Develop Love Constantly. “Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.”

11. Remain Positive. “As you think, so shall you become.”
