One of the virtues of the very young is that you don't let facts get in the way of your imagination.

Most important

You are the most important person in the world. And so is everyone else.

When you translate those two seemingly contradictory realities into action, you will indeed go far. So how do you do that?

First, treat yourself like you are the most important person in the world. Respect, nourish and take good care of your own needs and desires.

At the same time, treat every other person as the most important person in the world. Act with respect, compassion and genuine consideration for others.

Engage in activities that create value for yourself and for others. Pay attention to your own ideas, as well as to the ideas and opinions of others.

Treat yourself as the most important person in the world, and treat others in the same way as you treat yourself. It is a time-tested strategy that brings amazing results.
