Love. Love must start with yourself. If you do not love yourself, you will not maintain the effort necessary to move your life forward. Love is the motivator. Love encourages you to make a happy, healthy, successful life.
Persistence. Every day, work at improvement in career, health, relationships and psyche. Every day, exercise a little, every day, connect with your loved ones, every day look over your career goals and their plans for achievement. Every day is another day of training. The day you stop is the day you die.
Clarity. Be clear about your goals. Be clear about the body you want. Be clear about the relationship you want. Be clear about the career path you want. Find those who have accomplished those things. Talk to them. Learn the price. Decide if you're willing to pay it.
Balance. Don't attain success in one quadrant at the expense of the others. Health, career, relationships and self — all four, in balance.
Adopt these as your guiding principles and you will learn what is true about yourself.
Only in growth, reform, and change, paradoxically enough, is true security to be found.
