Great mentors—and personal experience—have taught me some valuable lessons.
  1. Happiness is an attitude, not a set of circumstances.
    My first job was delivering pizza. My car smelled like food all the time and I did more dishes than I care to remember...But tips were great, I got paid to cruise around town while listening to my favorite tunes, and I could call myself a "professional driver". Always look for the bright side.
  2. You can learn to do anything.
    Wanna learn how to code? Or how to fix your car? Or become a better writer? The resources are out there to help you learn to do anything...but in the end, TRUE learning comes down to doing. It takes time, but remember: Everyone was "the new guy" at some point.
  3. Everyone needs to feel appreciated.
    People crave to be acknowledged for their work, and they deserve to be shown appreciation. So as you see others do well, commend authentically and regularly. Because that will inspire them to do more.
