Lesson 1: The keys to happiness are to have a sense of purpose, to feel secure, to be loved, and to be healthy physically, mentally and spiritually. No job is going to give you all of that. Find out what your job isn’t giving you and fill in the gaps. You will be happier at work and at home because of it.
Lesson 2: Your physical health directly affects your mental health. Which dictates your daily outlook and your interaction with others. Which shapes your relationships and your impact in the world.
Lesson 3: Validation can only come from within. If you think highly of yourself then others will think highly of you.
Lesson 4: The small circle of people closest to you are the most valuable people in your world. Nurture those relationships and spend as much time on them as you can.
Lesson #5: Your journey through life will not be smooth sailing. Being too hard on yourself won’t achieve anything except make the journey more difficult. So be your own number one fan and supporter. It’s a lot more enjoyable than the alternative.
