Things I have learned about life choices:

 

  • God and Family above all else
  • Be truthful and honest in all that you do
  • There is no substitute for hard work to achieve success in education, marriage, chosen profession, or relationships
  • The first 25 years of marriage are the toughest
  • Treat others the way you expect to be treated
  • If you’re not learning something every day, you have a bad job
  • Success isn’t permanent and failure isn’t fatal
  • What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger
  • God never gives you more than you can handle
  • The greatest successes follow the greatest failures
  • Experience is always better than education
  • Leaders don’t ask if a job needs to be done, they just do it
  • If you want to excel, follow your passions
  • People are basically good
  • If you are not growing, you are dying
  • We are here for a life of service to family, friends, and community
  • Our success on earth is not measured in things but in relationships
  • The customer is always right even when he isn’t
  • Surround yourself with people who have a lot more experience than you
  • Never pass up a free meal
