I state this as number one at the risk of sounding really cliche but I couldn’t help it because it really is true. Love yourself, flaws and all. It’s one of the most important gifts you can give yourself and will make your life incredibly easier.
Confidence, not arrogance. Confidence and faith in your ability to deliver, to lead a fulfilling life and to do what you say you will do. However, you can’t be confident if you do not put in work.

Understanding Your Privilege Point
We all have something we didn’t work too hard for and we always seem to be flourishing in. Flawless skin without expensive skin care, Excellent grades without having to pull an all-nighter, being the one people always come to for advice, etc. Find out your privilege point and run with it!
