“Knowing what I know now, I probably would tell myself to get on with it at a quicker pace! But you can’t live in regret or keep saying “if only I had done it this way” you learn from your mistakes and past experiences and look at them as just a speed bump in your success story.”
“Be true to yourself. Live honestly. Be a good person. Know your strengths and play those strengths up. Everyone is here for a reason, and we are given our gifts and talents for a reason–why waste them by never sharing them?”
