Learn every day and live in present

Learn from the past, plan for the future and live in the now.

"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow." - Albert Einstein

Look for the positive things in life; they are everywhere.

Nothing is impossible if you really set your mind to it, be open to feedback and learning, always keep your promises, be honest with people.

You'll never regret what you do; but you might regret what you don't.

Live every moment of your life as if it were your last

Satisfaction comes from your efforts at overcoming your shortcomings and adversity, and earning dignity.

Nothing lasts forever.
