From Jon Gordon:

Don’t think you know it all. See yourself as a life-long learner who is always seeking ways to learn, grow and improve.
See everyone as a teacher and learn from everyone you meet.
Be open to new ideas and strategies to take your life, school and work to the next level.
When people tell you that you are great don’t let it go to your head. And when they tell you that you stink, don’t let it go to your head.
Live with humility because the minute you think you have arrived at the door of greatness it will get shut in your face.

Follow your passion, continuously improve, and set new goals and milestones.
Seek out new ideas, new strategies and new ways to push yourself out of your comfort zone.
Invest the time, energy, sweat and dedication to be your best and let God do the rest.
Be willing to pay the price that greatness requires. Don’t be average. Strive to be great.
Decide to leave a legacy. Even at a young age it’s important to think about what legacy you want to leave because knowing how you want to be remembered helps you decide how to live today.
