1. If you don’t ask for things, somebody else will.
2. We need to stop pretending that sushi rolls with white rice is good for you, it's not and that's a fact.
3. There is no reason as to why you can’t achieve something you set your mind to, see others in the position you want to be in? Did they come from the same class and background as you? Did they achieve their dreams? If so why and how and why can’t you?
4. You know you’re an adult when you have an extra $5 and use that to buy a fancier bottle of wine rather than another drink.
5. Have friends/surround yourself with people who not only are happy for your success but support it...in turn do the same for them.
