1/2. What's most important to me in life and its order of importance?

- The rules I’m willing to change now to improve my life forever:
"Success isn't a binary state -it is a continuum and it is a process, meaning that I can feel successful every day, and still improve significantly everty day!"
"Humiliation is when I committed a moral sin even though I know full well not to, even if I'm not exposed"
