* Adversity. Every thing has a purpose and a reason. Our job is to discover the lessons that we can learn from each experience, and then how we can use them in our lives or pass them on to others.

* Business. You have to prepare for failure when you start your own business. You can gain valuable insight by removing yourself from difficult situations when times are tough.

* Growth. Allowing yourself to forgive and have some freedom will allow you to grow. Each person is still a work-in-progress.

* Grace. Grace is the ability to find the good in every day and the ugly. To survive, you must embrace the challenges of life and not let them define your outlook or determine your destiny.

* Love. If you don’t love yourself, money and fame will be of little use. Only when you love yourself, happiness, and your inner beauty, is it possible to find true happiness.
