  5. Bring out the best in them

Live young, have fun, and arrive at

your final destination as late as possible, with a smile on your

face. Don’t compare your journey to others, maintain optimism and faith in yourself. Adversity helps you grow, what can you learn from life’s challenges.

“Lessons from older people:

(1) They would reflect more. Enjoy more moments. More sunrises and

sunsets. More moments of joy. (2) They would take more risks and

chances. Life is too short not to go for it. (3) They would have left a legacy. Something that would live on after they die.”
