“Work hard but work smart. Always. Every day. Nothing is handed to you and nothing is easy. You’re not owed anything…No job or task is too small or beneath you. If you want to get ahead, volunteer to do the things no one else wants to do, and do it better. Be a sponge. Be open and learn”

“From now on, you fill out your own report card. So do yourself a favor: Be an easy grader. Score yourself on a curve. Give yourself extra credit. You have the power. You are your own professor now. Which I know is a little creepy because that means you’re showering with your professor. But you have tenure. They can’t fire you.”

 

8. Steve Jobs

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition … Stay hungry, Stay foolish. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick, but don’t lose faith”

 

9. Steve Harvey

“There is a difference between success and greatness. You got your degree; that’s successful. So far, this has been about yourself … but great people change other people’s lives. Great people put other people’s needs in front of theirs. Great people go back to their communities and change lives.”

 

10. Adrian Tan

“What you should prepare for is mess. Life’s a mess. You are not entitled to expect anything from it. Life is not fair. Everything does not balance out in the end. Life happens, and you have no control over it. Good and bad things happen to you day by day, hour by hour, moment by moment. Your degree is a poor armor against fate.Don’t expect anything. Erase all life expectancies. Just live.”
