Always be yourself

At times, life seems tough and we wish there were a smoother roadBut no matter how desperate a situation is, how out of place you may feel

At times, life seems tough and we wish there were a smoother road

But no matter how desperate a situation is, how out of place you may feel

How unattractive you seem to be among the others

It only takes one thing, just be yourself.

Do not feel discouraged if you get lower marks than you did the previous term

Double the effort and you will succeed

Look at yourself as a winner because losing is not an option.

You cannot be good at everything, so accept what it is you are good at, and stick with it

Never try to hide who you are.

A teacher of mine once said, “The only shame is to have shame”

Always stand up for what you believe in

Question what other people tell you and do not accept to be taken for granted

Never regret the past, for it’s a waste of time

Always know that confidence dispels all fear.

This is a reason for everything, every mistake, every moment of weakness

Every terrible thing that has ever happened to you

The only way you can get command respect, is if you respect yourself

Do not apologise for being you unless you are a total jerk

Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle

If you want to be the master of your life then, just take one step at a time

And be yourself.
