“Tomorrow’s my birthday, and I thought I’d share what I’ve learned!
5 Things I Learned at 20
If your voice shakes, talk louder.
You grant yourself permissions. Permissions are not granted to you.
Be comfortable in making a ton of mistakes, so long as you learn.
Study harder than anyone you know. Be the best at what you do. No excuses.
The more successful you get, the more disliked you’ll be. Accept. The journey is worth it.”
This is me. I remember seeing this guy at the table next to me, and I kept waiting until he looked busy enough for me to actually start writing. I was a little scared to write on the wall - these were my thoughts, things I usually kept to myself. I was really happy when Hoc asked to take a picture, and even more excited when I saw how many people related/were inspired by the last things I thought at the age of 20. Gotta love Humans of UH.
