Hello! Here are some quotes I liked this week.

"Go out of your way to find humility when things are going right and forgiveness/compassion when they go wrong. Because it’s never as good or as bad as it looks. The world is big and complex. Luck and risk are both real and hard to identify. Do so when judging both yourself and others. Respect the power of luck and risk and you’ll have a better chance of focusing on things you can actually control. You’ll also have a better chance of finding the right role models."
Morgan Housel.

"Naïve Realism: We generally think very highly of ourselves. We tend to believe that we see the world with perfect objectivity. We also assume that people who disagree with us must be ignorant, uninformed, or biased. This error sits at the core of many societal problems."
Sahil Bloom.

"...you are human beings like me, and as such you were free to commit a crime, to become guilty. Now, however, you are responsible for overcoming guilt by rising above it, by growing beyond yourselves, by changing for the better."
Viktor Frankl.

"It’s hard to grow beyond something if you won’t let go of it."
James Clear.

“The long-term success of a relationship depends far more on avoiding the negative than on seeking the positive.”
Daniel Kahneman.
