1. Conquer your fears, don’t let them conquer you!
  2. Choose your friends wisely; love those best who love God most
  3. Have a cause to which you are committed—that you’d rather die for than give up
  4. Know yourself; know your limitations and your buttons; don’t let anyone determine your action or reactions
  5. Better to walk away than lose your life or end up in jail
  6. Keep yourself pure. Be fit and enjoy life to the fullest; you are young only once
  7. Be honest with yourself and with others
  8. Take no one for granted; each person is a child of God
  9. Set goals for your life—both short-term and long-term
  10. Think before you speak! Listen twice as much as you speak—God gave you two ears but one mouth
