Love yourself and be grateful for all you have in life. Learn to laugh at the mistakes you make along the way. Each day, feel the enthusiasm for your vision as if it has already happened. Stay open for the remarkable to occur. Young children may teach us something. As adults, we can be persistent in going for what we value.
