Be adaptable. Change is the only thing that is constant, so try to keep up with the latest technology that fuels your brain.
Gratitude is the true virtue. Be thankful to yourself and everyone around you. Be grateful for whatever you have and never crib about things you don't have.

Identify three things you are grateful for and write them in a gratitude journal after you wake up in the morning or before you go to bed.
