3. No one has it all in life.
4. Take your health seriously. At 67, I can’t stress this enough!
5. Take your primary relationships seriously. That’s the relationship with your family.
6. Life is like the World Cup. Some are just happy to have qualified. Others just want to make it to the quarter-finals. So be careful whom you imitate.
7. We represent more than ourselves.
8. It pays to read.
9. Don’t worry.
10. Seek God.
