What happened to me

1. Have no expectations for 2 years

“What you stay focused on will grow.” ― Roy T. Bennett

2. Spend time getting to know who you actually are

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” — Aristotle

3. Pick up the ladder, place it firmly on the ground and leave it there for now

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” — Mark Twain

4. Focus on right now, right here

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” — Steve Jobs

5. Look after your mind and body they are the only ones you’ve got

“I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival.” — Audre Lorde
