Help people become a better version of themselves. Have their interests in mind. Trust is built by repeated actions. Try to learn from every person and interaction you can. Your culture is what you allow and what you establish. You make choices and your choices make you. Make the person in front of you feel important. No matter what. Each interaction is a deposit into the piggy bank of someone else’s life. “Adversity is a University. Get a degree while you’re there. Take notes.”
