* You should form questions (and in most cases, your responses as well) specifically to the person you are communicating with. Don't inundate the recipient with extra info that they will be unable to process. Clean it up, make it tidy...and most likely, you will get the response you are looking for.
* Asking for help when you need it is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of strength. You can't be at your best if you are unable to let others pitch in on occasion.
* Only you can control where you go in life.
* Everything you do has a consequence. Whether it is good or bad, doesn't matter. You just always have to know that each action will in turn cause another. Sometimes you won't see it. Sometimes it will be the best thing ever. Sometimes it will suck righteously. Just be aware and your actions will define who and what you are.
