  1. When the head is not well, so will the rest of the body. This is a reference to leadership. When a team is led by a bad leader, nothing will amount to the effort of the team.
  2. Preserve your innocence. Don’t let anyone taint it with gossip, opinions, or anything that compromises your values.
  3. You need to know how to handle someone jealous of you. You need to be discerning.
  4. Focus on contributing and far less on competing.
  5. Learn to know when you’re in warfare and always be ready for one (it always starts first, spiritually).
  6. Be slow to speak. And only speak when you have something ‘meaningful’ to say. The quietest person in a room is often the smartest person.
  7. Utilize every opportunity you have to talk about your work and less about yourself.
  8. Have a personal brand. Be known for something outside the conventional.
  9. Apply for opportunities, no matter how insignificant you think they are. As long as they will add value to someone, shoot your shot.
  10. Document your life. Take pictures and videos. Celebrate milestones, both privately and publicly.
  11. Don’t be jealous of anyone. You demean what God is doing in your life.
  12. Don’t stand on the side of right; stand on the side of God. Right is relative in this world, but standing with God makes any man right.
  13. Don’t be scared to shine. It is what God made you to do—shine!
  14. When you lose your confidence, read the Bible and pray.
  15. If there is a will, there is a way. If you will, God will always make a way. This is to say, you must do your part so you can commit God to do His.
  16. Don’t give in to what makes you comfortable; strive to improve. Discomfort is often necessary to be great.

I trust these lessons will guide and inspire you, just as they have guided me on my journey of personal growth and development.”

“Arise [from spiritual depression to a new life], shine [be radiant with the glory and brilliance of the Lord]; for your light has come, And the glory and brilliance of the Lord has risen upon you.”

Isaiah 60:1 AMP
