Wisdom From Bruce:

  • Don’t give up— it can get better.  You will find ways to make your life better.
  • Focus on now— not what happened last week, last month, or the future.
  • If you don’t judge others or situations, you’ll judge yourself much less.
  • Don't give the negative situation a life of its own— back off, re-assess.

  • You can be a powerful influencer. You can impact people significantly with your actions.
  • Being mindful can help you overcome your challenges.
