Words of advice someone said to you that changed your life?

Words of advice someone said to you that changed your life? –@adriennetran

I had a real hard time with this at first. Most of the people who have “mentored” me I ultimately got distanced from for a variety of reasons. [See, “The Worst Boss I’ve Ever Had” http://bit.ly/oS8lYT]

But here’s a couple of things that people have said to me that I have not forgotten:

“Try to improve every day” (Jim Cramer told me that one http://bit.ly/hOrF87)

“Focus on today only” (Claudia told me that one when I was worrying about a hypothetical event that could happen two years from now)

“I’m only worried about what’s in my pocket, not what’s in your pocket” (a good way to focus on your own needs and finances and not be obsessed with the mythical Jones family we always try to keep up with. Yitz told me that one http://bit.ly/lvBeW2)

“Always be honest” (my dad taught me that one, the hard way http://bit.ly/qNWbHD)

Unfortunately, most other things I’ve had to learn on my own.
