Summary of “My life philosophy: 49 things I’ve learned during 49 years on Earth”

You receive tickets every time you try new things and meet new people.
Again from How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World: “You are free to live your life as you wantThe demands and wishes of others don’t control your life. You do. You make the decisionsThere are thousands of people who wouldn’t demand that you bend yourself out of shape to please them. There are people who will want you to be yourself, people who see things as you do, people who want the same things you want. Why should you have to waste your life in a futile effort to please those with whom you aren’t compatible?” Be impeccable with your word.
When you take things personally, you’re allowing others to control your life and your happiness.
There are a lot of people out there who want to tell others what’s wrong with their actions, why the things they want to do can’t be done.
You’re more likely to regret the things you don’t do than the things you do.
Strip from your life the things that take time, money, and energy, but which do not bring you joy.
History is filled with examples of folks who achieve great things later in life.
This is the most important thing I’ve learned during my 49 years of life.
