Dont race against others; race against yourself. Time is the most precious commodity. Think positively. Live every day of your life as if it was your last day. Help others selflessly. Take a break from what you are used to do and start doing something you actually have a taste for. Spend some time in solitude everyday in meditation. Everyday before sleeping, think about happenings during the day, analyze them and plan to improve in future.
