Patience: It takes time to find out who we are, what we need, and what kind of life we want to live – everything needs the right time to happen.

On the contrary, it means to be willing to endure any hardship in the journey of life so as to create your own destiny, no matter how long that might take.
Persistence: Albert Einstein once said that you never fail until you stop trying. Persistent effort is necessary to achieve anything of importance. No matter how many failures you may have experienced, no matter the difficulties you may be facing, never stop striving to turn your dreams into reality.
Courage: Mistakes are natural, and failures happen often. Don’t be afraid of committing mistakes or admitting that you have failed. Be brave enough to go through challenges and adventure. Nothing will ever be given to you unless you ask for it.
Responsibility: Freedom goes hand in hand with responsibility. Life is made of choices and choice always brings responsibility. Every action leads to a reaction, every cause has its consequences. Always make sure you choose what you feel is right and never forget to see yourself as the creator of your destiny.
Love: If you have everything, but lack love, then you almost nothing. But if you have nothing, except for love, then you have nearly everything. To love is to be at peace with yourself and others.
Truth: Never be afraid to speak the truth, and always be true to yourself. No matter what others want or expect from you, you should always serve the truth, regardless of the consequences. This might be painful in the beginning, but in the end truth shall set you free.
