    I can start
    the best advice i ever got was "Dont mess with the cook"
    thge guy who told (i cant remember his name no matter what i do) had a story behind it
    here it is
    there were a bunch of guys deer hunting and one of them made fun of the cook at the camp
    so every night, the cook go to the guy's rifle and move the cross hairs on his scope up a lot, and before the guy tried to site it in after he got back, the cook would change it back
    this went on for like a week and all the guys were waiting on the one to get a deer so they could all go home. he finally got a deer because his scope fogged up and he used the iron sites

    This isn't advice someone told me but I am a firm believer in "Self-fulfilling prophecy"

    If you have a negative attitude going into something, you will probably get a negative outcome. The inverse is true as well.

    I always try to remain positive even if the world is crashing around me. I don't dwell on things...especially things that happened in the past.

    Always have goals. Short term and long term, big or small.
