Dear my younger self

Dear my younger self,

         Today i was half your age and you're in your youthful age. when you read this i think you still have to open some dictionary entries, because as far as i remember i'm not good at English yet. the reason i wrote this note to you because i want to give you some advice about how to deal with life choice. i'm not intended to make you made a different life choice because it would make paradox, it's just like reflection to myself, you'll know about that soon.

i have ten advice to you, i hope you take it seriously and follow them.

First thing i want to tell you is commit yourself to making lots of mistakes. Mistakes teach you important lessons.  The biggest mistake you can make is doing nothing because you’re too scared to make a mistake.  So don’t hesitate – don’t doubt yourself.  In life, it’s rarely about getting a chance; it’s about taking a chance.  You’ll never be 100% sure it will work, but you can always be 100% sure doing nothing won’t work.  Most of the time you just have to go for it!  And no matter how it turns out, it always ends up just the way it should be.  Either you succeed or you learn something.  Win-Win.  Remember, if you never act, you will never know for sure, and you will be left standing in the same spot forever.

Second, Find hard work you love doing. I'd like to tell you important thing about career,don't ever choose career based on career choice on other people’s ideas, goals and recommendations.  I’d tell you not to pick a major because it’s popular, or statistically creates graduates who make the most money.  I’d tell you that the right career choice is based on one key point: Finding hard work you love doing.  As long as you remain true to yourself, and follow your own interests and values, you can find success through passion.  Perhaps more importantly, you won’t wake up several years later working in a career field you despise, wondering “How the heck am I going to do this for the next 30 years?”  So if you catch yourself working hard and loving every minute of it, don’t stop.  You’re on to something big.  Because hard work ain't hard when you concentrate on your passions.

Third,People are not mind readers.  Tell them what you’re thinking.People will never know how you feel unless you tell them.  Your boss?  Yeah, he doesn't know you’re hoping for a promotion because you haven’t told him yet.  That cute girl you loved but you afraid to tell her that you love her, because you don't have courage?  Yeah, you guessed it; she hasn't given you the chance because you haven’t given her the chance to know about your feeling for her. In life, you have to communicate with others.  And often, you have to open your vocal cords and speak the first words.  You have to tell people what you’re thinking.  It’s as simple as that.

Fourth, Don’t worry too much about what other people think about you. For the most part, what other people think and say about you doesn't matter. I know, right now you let the opinions of your high school and early college peers influence your decisions.  And, at times, they steered you away from ideas and goals you strongly believed in.  you'll realize, ten years later, that this was a foolish way to live, especially when you consider that nearly all of these people whose opinions you cared so much about are no longer a part of your life.  Unless you’re trying to make a great first impression (job interview, first date, etc.), don’t let the opinions of others stand in your way.  What they think and say about you isn’t important.  What is important is how you feel about yourself.

Fifth, Always be honest with yourself and others. Living a life of honesty creates peace of mind, and peace of mind is priceless.  Period

Sixth, Talk to lots of people in college and early on in your career. Bosses.  Colleagues.  Teacher.  Classmates.  Social club members.  Other students outside of your major or social circle. Teaching assistants.  Career advisers.  College deans.  Friends of friends.  Everyone!  Why?  Professional networking. A lot of people get easy career when they had networking or friends in every matter of field, and you'll regret when you don't have one. so for the sake of your future, do more talk to everyone around you.

Seventh, Ask lots of questions. The greatest ‘adventure’ is the ability to inquire, to ask questions.  Sometimes in the process of inquiry, the search is more significant than the answers.  Answers come from other people, from the universe of knowledge and history, and from the intuition and deep wisdom inside yourself.  These answers will never surface if you never ask the right questions.  Thus, the simple act of asking the right questions is the answer.

Eighth, Be respectful of others and make them feel good.  In life and business, it’s not so much what you say that counts, it’ how you make people feel.  So respect your elders, minors, and everyone in between.  There are no boundaries or classes that define a group of people that deserve to be respected.  Treat everyone with the same level of respect you would give to your grandfather and the same level of patience you would have with your baby brother.  Supporting, guiding, and making contributions to other people is one of life’s greatest rewards.  In order to get, you have to give.

Ninth, Excel at what you do.  There’s no point in doing something if you aren’t going to do it right.  Excel at your work and excel at your hobbies.  Develop a reputation for yourself, a reputation for consistent excellence.

Tenth, Be who you were born to be. You must follow your heart, and be who you were born to be.  Some of us were born to be musicians – to communicate intricate thoughts and rousing feelings with the strings of a guitar.  Some of us were born to be poets – to touch people’s hearts with exquisite prose.  Some of us were born to be entrepreneurs – to create growth and opportunity where others saw rubbish.  And still, some of us were born to be or do whatever it is, specifically, that moves you.  Regardless of what you decide to do in your lifetime, you better feel it in every fiber of your being.  You better be born to do it!  Don’t waste your life fulfilling someone else’s dreams and desires.
