“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.”

I. Clean your room

“Don’t compare yourself with other people; compare yourself with who you were yesterday.”

— Jordan Peterson.

“Set your house in order before you criticize the world.”

“The things you do every day are the most important things you do.”

II. Reduce your polarity

“If you want to make peace with an enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.”

— Nelson Mandela.

III. Face adversity

“All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me. You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.”

Walt Disney.

“It is not the strongest species that survives. It is the one that best adapts to change.”

“To always live in comfort and go without a pain in the soul is to ignore the other half of nature.”

“If you want different results, do not do the same things.”

IV. Novelty, variety, and challenge

“Just try new things. Don’t be afraid. Step out of your comfort zones and soar, all right?”

Michelle Obama.
