Lessons from Adam Sandler About Parent-ship and Life
1. Money and power aren’t everything
Having all the money in the world won’t make you happy. You should never let money change you from who you are inside. Stay humble and true to yourself even if you have all the money in the world.
2. Don’t ever let anything stand in your way
We will often come across people in our lives and career who will underestimate us and think that we are not capable of achieving great things. But sometimes it is easier to work harder when we know that people are not expecting much from us, and to prove them wrong is the biggest motivation one needs.
3. Make the most of second chances
There are many time in our life where we get second chances and you need to work hard and prove others wrong.
