    The best was when I was little and my mom told me you are never higher than someone else but also you are never lower than someone else. I always go by that rule, have done all my life and it's helped enormously.

    What is the best advice you have ever been given?

    Watch where you're going.

    No specific piece of advice resonates with me at this time. If I had to come up with an answer, it'd be holistic psychology as a whole. I firmly believe that the average human being easily forgets that we are still animals. Our habits and behavior directly relate to survival; looking at life from that perspective has helped me.

    Other people's opinions don't matter.

    Look where you're going, not where you've been.

    Let it be.

    Work is like old age - the only thing worse is the alternative.
