If you want to grow, if you want to get ahead in your life, 
you must make learning your BEST friend.
You can start with these life lessons from
Pericles, he was a Greek politician

Human beings are fragile
"Trees, though they are cut and lopped, grow up again quickly,
but if men are destroyed, it is not easy to get them again."

Freedom is not free
"Freedom is the sure possession of those alone
who have the courage to defend it."

Your legacy matters
"What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments,
but what is woven into the lives of others."

Happiness depends on freedom
"Make up your mind that happiness depends on being free,
and freedom depends on being courageous."

The future is unknown. Be brave.
"But the bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what 
is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet 
notwithstanding go out to meet it."

Life Doesn’t Just Happen

Nothing happens by accident. If you want something, go for it. You can achieve whatever you want. But to achieve it, you have got to work for it, to pursue it, to create it, to build it, to nurture it, to love it, to bless it, to enjoy it. If not, you are just dreaming. 
It doesn't matter what you want. If you choose it, it will choose you. If you want something, do not let fear stop you from choosing it. Do not be scared to choose yourself. Do not be timid to choose your life, to choose your dreams, to choose you. 
When you choose your life, your life will choose you. No matter where you are, it is important to choose you. No matter what is going on in your life, it is important to choose you. No matter what you are pursuing, it is important to choose you. Why? Because when things are not going well with you, you are still you. You are still alive. When things go wrong, you are still you. You still have the power to choose the life you want to live. 
Do not let anything keep you from living your life. Not even you. Choose yourself. When others say you are not good enough, the best way to fight back is to choose yourself. When the road ahead is not clear, the best way forward is to choose yourself. When you choose yourself, the world will choose you. Let me ask you: "Do you have the courage to choose yourself?"
