1. Take Care of YOU First.
Always. No matter what. No excuses. If you do something for someone else without taking care of yourself first, you'll resent it. And you'll end up punishing yourself. Workout. Eat well. Relax. Take care of your body. Take time out. Keep away from toxic people and toxic situations. If you don't feel good, you aren't good...for anybody. Most importantly...for yourself.

It is whatever you choose to label it. Every crisis is an opportunity. You can see life as difficult or you can see it as challenging. Life is an adventure! If it were easy, what would be the point? It would be dull. You'd take it all for granted. The struggle builds character. The greatest people throughout history overcame enormous obstacles to achieve greatness. Just do whatever you need to do. Life is a journey. There may be bumps along the road, hairpin turns, dead-ends. You may get lost now & then. Just enjoy the journey, whatever it brings. Troubles don't last forever. It does get better. Happier days could be just around the bend.

Your ability to deal constructively and effectively with mistakes and temporary setbacks is a mental skill that you can learn and become proficient at. The best way to deal with any failure is to realize that it is an indispensable prerequisite for success. You have to treat failure as an opportunity to lean, and begin again. You can overcome the fear of failure by doing the things you fear over and over again, and then resolve to bounce back, rather than letting them break you when things don’t go right.
