Always have an attitude of gratitude throughout every phase of life. Remember all those who contributed to who you have become, no matter how small their efforts were. Remember those who said a kind word.
Those who encouraged you when you wanted to quit. Those who made you smile. Those who kept you in their prayers. Those who gave you a day's meal. Those who stood up for you when no one else cared. Those who went above and beyond their call of duty for the sake of you.
Those who kept you in check. Those who gave you their very last. All the efforts your parents, grandparents, other relatives, and friends made, so you could be where you are. You are standing on their numerous sacrifices, even if it seems insignificant to you now. Always remember there were times when they sacrificed everything. Be thankful for all those who contributed to your success.
