Life is all about perspective.

Even if you haven’t accomplished all of your dreams yet, that doesn’t mean you never will.

Remember, it’s about the journey, not the destination so enjoy the road!

Don’t be in a rush to get things done, but enjoy your time instead.

Take time to spend with your friends and family, because, just like Clarence said, “No man is a failure who has friends.”
