  3. In business and life, people may not remember your words, but they will remember the feeling you left with them. When it comes to your brand, ensure your customers feel the emotions you are portraying and have a pleasant experience.
  4. Give something back to society. It doesn’t have to be a monetary value either, give your time, energy, or anything you can sacrifice for the greater good.
  5. Take the time to reflect on your life. Ask yourself, what is it for, what is your life really about? Find what impact you want to leave this world with, and make it happen!
