When you are in a new situation, use where you’ve been to fuel the journey ahead, not as a reminder of the journey it could have been.
People need somebody who believes in them, and while you are waiting for that somebody yourself, it’s easy to forget you could be the one believing (in you and in others).
Being aware of luck is tremendously important, and helping others with the luck you are given is a great way to keep your feet on the ground.
If you are thinking about mentoring, helping, volunteering, the best thing to do is to just stop talking about it and start doing it. It’s generous, rewarding, and it does make a difference.
