Negativity will destroy like cancer, it is a very powerful force. Avoid negativity at all costs, do not allow it.

Hard work goes a long way, determination and hard work combined greatly increases the odds of success.
6. Help those around you that need help.
By making others stronger you also make yourself stronger, there is always something to be learned from helping others.

Aim higher than you think you can do, push yourself to make that mark. You will always remain hungry for more this way.
