Is there any advice which you trust so much that you would give it to absolutely anyone? If so, what is it? Why is that advice so good in your eyes? What in your life led you to value this particular advice?

Also don't post cryptic stuff like "don't do that thing I did once because it was bad" because that's annoying. ^__^

No one owes you anything.

Or at least no one in the big world will give a **** about you.

People will always push you down to pull themselves up when they get a chance.

Do your work, don't let them get that chance.

Think decisions through.

Learn from mistakes.

Prepare for and expect the worst.
I can't think of a good signature.

Just because it's the easy decision doesn't mean it's the right decision.

Fight for what you want, if you don't people will always take the things you want.

My advice? Trust nobody but yourself. Make people have to work hard to earn your trust, because by then, they'll actually deserve it.

Words of wisdom in my book, I should say.

My advice would be to keep a positive and sunny outlook and aura about you everyday and try to spread some of that happiness to others. Its always worth it to see the smile on the face of the person you helped.

It's pretty cliché, but when you're going through a bad time just remember that it won't last forever and things will always get better, so don't let it get you down too much since it'll be over soon. :)

If there's something you really want, work toward it every day. Let people help you, advise you, but don't stop working for it. Even if you don't get it, the knowledge that you worked as hard as you could will be almost as good as the thing itself and you'll be that much better off for whatever you try next.

I should take my own advice. D:

Live life the way that makes you happy, and don't ever attempt to stop others from doing the same. Unless they want to murder or rape people, or set fire to things.

Use the Master Ball on the wandering Pokemon
Save your money, and use them all on Full Restores and Revives when you go against the Elite 4

Set yourself a goal and go for it, don't let anyone tell you that you won't be able to do it.

Know your side of the story, and revise them often! Life is a story, and you're just a rough draft.

And while keeping the former in mind, hater's hate is nothing you should worry about. They're just jealous, wether they know it or not!

"The drive to succeed must be stronger than the fear of failure" I saw that on twitter once and I told my friend worked for him so I just went on using it.

Make sense? Oh, what fun is there in making sense?
