I remember my very first day in the gym back in Indiana. My palms were soft and quickly got torn up on the bars because they weren’t accustomed to gripping steel. But over time, after thousands of reps, my palms built up a thick callous as protection. The same principle works when it comes to mindset. Until you experience hardships like abuse and bullying, failures and disappointments, your mind will remain soft and exposed.

Life experience, especially negative experiences, help callous the mind. But it’s up to you where that callous lines up. If you choose to see yourself as a victim of circumstance into adulthood, (...) it will make you too cautious and untrusting, and possibly too angry at the world. It will make you fearful of change and hard to reach.

I wish you endless dreams and the furious desire to make some of them come true.

I wish you to love what you need to love and forget what you need to forget.

I wish you passions, I wish you silences. I wish you bird songs on waking up and children's laughter.

I wish you to respect the differences of others, because the merit and value of each one is often to be discovered. I wish you to resist the bogging down, the indifference and the negative virtues of our times.

Finally, I wish you never to give up research, adventure, life, love, because life is a magnificent adventure and no reasonable person should give it up without fighting a hard battle.

Above all, I wish you to be you, proud and happy, because happiness is our true destiny.
