One humble human is comfortable admitting that they don’t know everything. “I am not always the smartest guy in the room,” they said. “The older I get, the more I realize that considering all the knowledge available in the universe, I know approximately nothing.”

14: Practice Makes Perfect

Comparison to others can be debilitating, but it shouldn’t be. “There’s always a bigger fish in the pond,” one person said. “That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try something or become discouraged.”

“We all carry some form of dysfunction that is the product of our childhood environment,” one person said. Even if you were raised in a two-parent household that was free of conflict where your parents never argued in front of you, “You’re going to have a tough time dealing with conflict and being comfortable with uncomfortable conversations.”
