i think the absolute central challenge in life is to learn to not be afraid of who you actually are.
1. be kind and fair to everyone. 2. don't worry whether or not anyone likes you. 3. help people. 4. ask. 5. act. (get excited and share it) 6. love yourself. 7. love others. (try radical forgiveness) 8. gratitude for everything. 9. hope is your only hope. (and fear is your only worry) 10. be present. BONUS: adversity is an opportunity: ask yourself, when something goes wrong, "what bullet did i just dodge?"
