Sometimes I come across typography and words that
hit me with inspiration. I want to share these lessons with
you because it's never too late to better yourself.
1.Care more: Let your heart feel for others. Be understanding of differences and similarities. The millions of struggles our friends (even those you don't know, we are brothers and sisters after all) experience daily. Be compassionate and caring through listening. A heart that connects with others is worth more than the priciest gold this world can offer. 

2.Do what you say you're going to do: Commit to your word. Don't flake out on people and don't flake out on yourself. Build a human being that strives to endure its promises and goals. When you do what you say, you are creating trust within yourself and within others.

3.Stand in other people's shoes: You don't have to judge so quickly. Be open to the concept of differences. Just because we don't understand someone doesn't mean they don't relate to us in some way. In fact, I bet they relate to you in multitude of ways. Imagine what they feel. The type of days they are living through. There is a bitter world behind snooty, careless personalities that will haunt your heart forever. Your life may be a heaven through a neighbor's eyes. Remember that. 

4.Solve problems: Brushing problems off of your shoulder will have them landing even harder next time. Solve your problems. Whether it's within a relationship or work environment, be the one that takes charge and turns the bad into good.

5.Fix what's broken: Where would we be without technicians? Put matters into your own hands and dare to fix what it is broken. The unfixed will only damage us more someday. 

6.Change how people feel: Having confidence in what you know to be true is a gift that needs to be shared. Spread your knowledge to others and change how they feel. Inspire them. Make them believe in the positive rather than the negative. Show them a new way, a bright new perspective. What we know we must share with the world.

7.Create what you want to see in the world: Grasp the understanding that you are just as powerful as anyone else. You are capable of creating change just as many other historical figures have done. If you want more love to surface upon the earth, spread more love yourself. If you want to change the mundane education system, start alone locally and soon enough thousands of people will follow your lead. Be the one to change the world, and the world will change with you.

8.Don't wait for an invitation: Every amazing experience that can make it's way through your life will only happen if you take initiative. Do not wait for these experiences to spontaneously happen. Make them happen yourself. Knock on doors until someone opens, because I promise you, someone will let you in. Do what you want, when you want, and make your role a defining one. You will be in awe of what you can accomplish when you don't wait for an invitation. Want to know a secret? you'll never get an invitation if you don't make yourself known.

9.Think beyond what's possible: Why should you narrow your mind? The world is ours to mold and create. Stop imagining limits. They are not there. The greatest achievements and inventions we have today have all appeared impossible at some point. Your mind is endless, and so is your capability. The world caters to those who dream larger than what seems possible. 

10.Get over your fear: Fear is the greatest tool in the toolbox. It allows us to conquer our dreams and pursue what we desire to do. Fear can also be the most dangerous tool, leaving us too afraid to live the life we think about at night. Fear creates frightening scenarios. Fear makes us forget the possibility of greatness. Do not let fear wrap itself around your dreams until they suffocate. The most inspiring, life-changing individuals have never let fear get ahead. They fought a war with it until they won.

11.Act. Talking the talk is great, but walking the walk is even greater. Follow up on your wishes, dreams and promises. Thoughts are the seeds that plant beauty on earth. Act upon your words if you want to plant beauty in your own life as well as the lives of others. You can be the very person you crave to be, it only requires you to act and believe. 

Rinse and repeat.
