Rule 1- Life is not fair. Get used to it
Rule 2- The world won’t care about your self esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself
Rule 3- You will not make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice president with a car phone, until you earn both.
Rule 4- If you think your teacher is tough, wait til you get a boss. He doesn’t have tenure.
Rule 5- Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping. They called it Opportunity.
Rule 6- If you mess up, it’s not your parent’s fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
