Never forget where you came from and how far you have come. Do not forget, especially, the many who helped you along the way. You are not a self-made person – no one is. It is a duty and a privilege to help others.
Be mindful that letting go is not the same as giving up – let go of all that is not worth holding on to. In speaking your truth, watch your words and tone – avoid needless bruising and burning of bridges in your speech. There is wisdom in being diplomatic – try it from time to time. Be bold and prudent, at the same time. There is no one truth – accommodate different views.
Hang on to your child-like self-belief that you can achieve whatever you set your mind to, still and always. Count your blessings, all the time.
