1. Commit To Personal Growth
By improving who you are through the actions you take, you can completely reinvent yourself into the person you’ve always desired to become.
2. Measure your relationships by quality, not quantity
You don’t have to have a large inner circle to be loved, valued, or appreciated.
3. Seeking help is not a sign of weakness
Don't be afraid to ask for help or let someone know you're struggling. If you find it difficult to ask for help, practice!
4. Live your life, and stop seeking other people’s approval
spend more time creating what you wish to see and less time worrying about what other people think about it.

If you're in a difficult situation right now, remember that after the winter, there is spring. After a difficulty, there is an opportunity.
6. Nothing worth having comes easy
If you’re currently putting blood, sweat & tears into something….keep on going. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.
7. Getting up early is a game-changer
Studies have suggested that when a person gets up early, he is more energetic and takes less time to do a task that would otherwise take more time. He is also more adept at making better decisions, planning, and achieving goals.

You need the right balance of emotions and rationality to do things right. Learn to use them constructively for your self-improvement.

Always remember those who stood by your side in your dark they are the real ‘gems’ of your life.
