You should give to others, without asking for anything back. You should listen to others and appreciate their opinion. There is no good or bad, so if you find yourself in a lucky position you should never judge or criticize others.
You should always leave space for the other, and remain independent. You should only give to the other, and not take from them. You should not change nor ask them to change.
You should embrace it, as often the best things require pain and effort. You should welcome pain for the learnings it provides you.
You should embrace work, as it is what makes us transform objects into art. It allows us to better understand our planet and the way it works. You should put your heart into your work and always think about the greater purpose of what you're doing. Work done without motivation is not worth it.
