Losing keeps you sharp. (Rocky III)
Told to me by a 95 year old wheelchair bound woman at a nursing home I was working at:
Don't ever live your life on someone else's terms. I stopped living life on my terms when I was 20 and now I am 95 and I've been miserable every day for the last 75 years and now there's nothing I can do about it.
Told by me to my step kids:
95% of the stuff that happens to you in life is the direct result of a decision you made. 5% is good or bad luck. If you do not like the way things are working out, make different decisions.
Told to me by an old boss/friend:
Manage to the rule, handle the exceptions.
It's none of your business what someone else thinks of you.
Get as much money as you can upfront.
