Clean up a mess that isn’t yours.
Don’t listen to me.
Follow your heart， but be quiet for a while first。 Learn to trust your heart。
By giving praise to the people that have made what you do possible, you’ll get only respect back. The world has room for as many success stories as can be told. Always expand the pie.
I am not afraid of storms， for I am learning how to sail my ship。
Unless you truly want to remain in obscurity, don’t be shy when you do something worth mentioning. If you create something amazing, stand up and claim it.
Don‘t give up the things that belong to you and keep those lost things in memory。
I don’t claim to be extraordinary myself. In fact, I’m pretty sure that doing so is an immediate disqualification. But, I can say that every day I try and hopefully get a little bit closer.
Some people succeed because they are destined to， but most people succeed because they are determined to！
Take important things seriously…
Every time you come to mind， I realize I‘m smiling。
Dress the best you can afford.
…But don’t stay gone too long.
Seek first to understand, then to be understood.
Don‘t give up when you are able to fly。
Use your persuasive powers to make the world a better place to live for everyone. It takes the same amount of effort to do something good as it does to do something evil, so you may as well work to make things better.
However the world fails you， never forget your mercy and kindness that lies within。
Life was not meant to be lived in completely safety. Do not hide under a rock when you’ve been called to stand up.Do something meaningful but uncomfortable with your time every single day.
…But laugh at them, too.
Endeavor to become better at the things that hold you back and never assign part of your life to someone when you don’t fully understand what they’re doing with it. You’re the one in charge, so make sure you get what you actually want.
Destiny determines who comes into our lives but it’s the heart that decides who stays inside。
Find gratitude for what you have…
A person has at least one dream， there is a reason to be strong。
Life is simple, but living remarkably is not nearly as easy as all of the“5 Ways to be Successful”articles on the internet make it out to be. In fact, it’s quite hard and there is no guide you can follow, so you’re going to have to make your own.
When someone has wronged you, learn how to let it go. Understand that very few people hurt each other on purpose and even fewer don’t regret it.
Find what only you can give back.
May there be enough clouds in your life to make a beautiful sunset。
Travel is fatal to xenophobia. The more you see of different people and different places, the more you realize we’re all the same.
However long the night， the dawn will break。
When someone else creates something amazing, be the first to tell the world who made it. If you build on someone else’s success, make it clear who made your work possible.
Don‘t compare your life with others。 There’s no comparison between the sun and the moon。 They shine when it‘s their time。
…But always strive for more.
Be thankful every day for what you have because tomorrow it could be gone. No matter how little you own, remember that there is always someone with less. Always make the best of your situation and find gratitude not just for the things you have, but the things you’ve achieved.
So that’s what I try to do. I don’t always succeed; in fact I fail quite a lot. Yet, I’ve never been upset that I tried. Here are 30 ideas I’ve used, all with varying degrees of success. I hope that they can help you in your journey to lead your own remarkable life.
…And give credit where it’s due.
When you win, celebrate. Give yourself the time and opportunity to be truly happy about what you’ve done.
Do something that scares you every day.
Never lose the child-like wonder。
Life is interesting because tiny differences can create completely different cultures. As you learn of new ones, try not to lose the one that others will also, someday, want to learn of.
When you make the decision to do something remarkable, theodds are always stacked against you. There’s no way around it, so it’s best to just get used to it.
The life is not always full of multiple choices， but application questions， which need us to prove little by little。
You can’t change these people, but youcanchange the effect that their actions have. Picking up someone else’s mess never feels good, but living with it feels even worse. The next time you see a piece of trash (literally or figuratively), pick it up.
If you ever want to do anything interesting in your life, you’ll have to accept the unfortunate fact that some people will be upset about it. These will most likely be those that don’t lose graciously, set the rules that you’re breaking, and have fallen into laziness and like the way things already are.

Leverage what you’re already good at…
Stand up to authority.
Nobody gets through life without making mistakes. If you’re lucky, you’ll only make a few big ones and many small ones.
Don‘t focus too much which will let you down。
Just because we’ve always done it this way doesn’t mean that we’re doing it right. It’s your responsibility to notice when something can be changed for the better and it’s also your responsibility to make it happen.
The rules that exist are designed so that you can’t win. That’s not unfair or wrong, that’s just how life is. Someday, when you win by breaking those rules, you’ll set up your own. Don’t be surprised when someone new decides to break them. This is the cycle of life.
I spend most of every day thinking of more ways to step up my game and take things to another level. To this day, I’ve never come up with an easy way to do it. That’s okay because, if I did, it probably wouldn’t be very valuable anyway. No, to be remarkable means to take risks over and over again on difficult things that might not work. It means stepping outside the comfort zone that contains most people, and exposing yourself to danger.
Don‘t be discouraged； it’s often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock。
Take a risk on something you’ll probably lose.
It‘s not easy to grow up。 Some don’t， some don‘t want to and some pretend not having been grown up。
Influence people to make the world better.
Whatever is worth doing is worth doing well。
…And lose graciously.
Everything you’ve achieved in life is a gift. You were either born capable or born able to become capable.
Take what you do very seriously, but never at the expense of having fun. Life is far too short to deprive yourself of enjoyment.
Live for today and stop stressing out about tomorrow。
Not everyone will hold the same values that you do. Not everyone will work to make their own world a better place to live in. Some people will ignore their duty to others and some will actually try to make it worse.
You could have been any number of millions of things, but you were lucky enough to end up human. This means that you have the ability tothink for yourselfand make decisions based on your own experiences. Don’t waste that. It’s incredibly valuable.
Give so much time to improving yourself that you won‘t have time to criticize others。
When you feel like you have something to say, wait. Ask yourself if you’ve taken the time to hear what’s been said to you. By understanding others, you’ll be far better suited to help them understand you once it’s your turn.
Everyone is born with a unique set of talents. Take as much time as you need to figure out what yours are because they’re the most valuable tools you’ll have for the rest of your life.
Wherever you go， whatever you do， I will be right here waiting for you。
When things are harder than ever before and you don’t know where to turn, these are the people that will keep your head on straight. Do everything you can to help them and you’ll get the same in return.
Don’t let the past steal your present。
Let people know how you can help them, and you’ll attract plenty of good company to make life just a little bit better.
Get out and see the world…
