The Value of a Positive Mindset
Our mindset affects every single one of our decisions. It impacts how we look at the world and the people around us. As a result, it is important to look at them in a positive way rather than a negative way. If we have a positive mindset, we will have a great impact on ourselves and the people around us.

Finding a Balance Between Reading and Experience
Reading from books gives us a lot of in depth background knowledge about a variety of topics. Without them we would not know what we are interested in and what career path we may want to follow. However, they have their own limitations. We can get past many of these limitations by learning from experience. When we experience something hands-on we are able to find out what we are proficient in and what we need to learn more about. It provides many more advantages, but has its own limitations. This is why we must find a balance between reading and experience.

Giving Back to Our Community
We all have our own special memories of when we were growing up wether it was visiting a certain place every year with our family, a restaurant we would go eat at with our friends after school, or any other memory. We would not be able to have these special memories if we were not part of the community we grew up in. We have to make sure we give back to our communities, so other people can make their own special memories and have an even better experience than we did. Through this we not only strengthen our communities, we may even discover something about ourselves we did not know before.

The Importance of Setting Goals and Believing in Ourselves
Our goals impact the work that we do and the way we live our life. They are very important to have, so we know what direction to take our life. It is important to always set new goals when we finish our other goals, however it is also important to celebrate our achievements. It all starts with believing in ourselves. If we doubt our abilities, we will tell ourselves that we can't achieve certain goals and won't be able to get through the hard days.

Respecting Each Other's Beliefs
Everyone has different influences that shape who they are and give them their own unique personality. This often leads to a conversation about who is right or wrong in a certain situation especially about things like moral and ethics. It's important to understand that everyone has their own beliefs depending on their own experiences. This is why we must respect everyone's opinions even if we don't agree with them.

Social media is very powerful and influential in today's society and can have both positive and negative effects. It has the ability to create a positive impact and bring a lot of change. However, if is not used carefully, the positive effects can quickly change into negative effects.

The Meaning of Life
The dictionary has a definition for life, but is there really only one meaning for life. I think that there are an infinite amount of definitions for life because each person has their own. I believe that the meaning of life can be broken into categories and that these categories can help guide people to find what life means to them.

Deeper Than the Surface
We all wear a mask every single day that only portrays who we are on the surface level. However, we each have our own story behind the mask that makes us unique. We need to make sure that we judge and create an impression of someone based on their story and not the mask they wear.

Conforming to Societal Standards
Peer pressure should not make us believe that we have to conform to societal standards. We should be willing to create our own path and journey.
