If today was your last day, what would you do differently? http://chah.al/lastday
Grow a thick skin—a very thick skin. People will question your ability to succeed, and the loudest among them might make you doubt your own talents, so you’ll need a thick skin to drown out the noise. The silence will help you focus on your objective, and you will prevail.

“Live a full life. Live a life of empowering others to succeed. Challenge yourself to give more than what is expected of you. And, then hopefully, we’ll realize – the rent that was given to us was worth every moment, every desire, every ambition, every emotion, and ability we were given.” http://chah.al/rent
We’re used to this concept. We rent space all the time. Whether they be hotels, apartments, cars, but most importantly time. Sometimes, we get that freedom from our work to enjoy our weekends. But, we forget one thing. Life itself is a rented space of time. It’s a mystery. We only know when the clock …

"Never regret a single character in your journey. If they weren’t part of your destination, they were just preparation.” http://chah.al/happiness
