A letter to Hannah continued
If you pursue the things you're passionate about, you'll be successful.
- Attitude is everything.
Most people seem to be inherently negative. Be different. Tackle every part of life with enthusiasm.
- Take risks.
When you look back on your life, you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the things you did.
- Rules were meant to be broken.
Don't be afraid to experiment with the package directions or color outside of the lines.
- Don't worry about what other people will think.
Most people aren't thinking about you anyway.
- Learn what matters.
If something will effect you 10 years later, then be concerned about it. If it won't, then don't.
- Question everything.
I learned this from my mother and although I put this last, it's probably the most important piece of advice. I hope you start with this list.
