“Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.”
― Oscar Wilde
Be unpopular if you can: Keep a notebook about the things you value, quotes you can identify with and advice you get along the way. Write on its cover "My owner's manual", and know that each one is as unique as the person who made it. You will seem broken to others, and visa versa, from time to time. It is completely expected and good to not be popular and to step on others toes from time to time. It wouldn't be "My owner's manual" otherwise.
Eat unhealthy if you absolutely have to: It is the feeling of guilt of having an unhealthy meal once in a while that help you on the days which count the most for sticking to your healthy food habits.
Be lazy every now and again: Even olympic athletes have days where they stare at the ceiling above them. It reminds you about the mental reasons why you are doing what you are doing in the first place. Without it, you will just forget after a while. You will need this during the times when you want to quit the most during 'insert what you are doing here', the memory of why you are doing something in the first place.
Be abnormally good, by being normal: To be abnormally good at something, you have to find normal now and again, it is the only way to know if you are making progress. It needs to act as a frame of reference for your journey.
It is O.K to fish for excuses now and again: It is often the only way we get to take a rest and recover, we have all been guilty of over working at some point or another. Just make sure a once in while thing of taking a break doesn't become an entirely new habit.
