3 Rules for Success from Bill Nye

Let’s take a look at the success lessons we can learn from Bill Nye:

1. Never underestimate people

At times it’s easy for us to label and define people from the beginning. However, everyone has potential, and everyone has the ability to help us learn and understand something we didn’t know before.

2. We are all equal

Labeling and differentiating people only puts you in the wrong mindset; it closes your mind to new things, ideas, and opinions. It’s a lot easier to live life when we all get treated like the equals that we are.

3.Set an example for others

If you want to see change happen in the world, you have to start somewhere. And sometimes, you have to be the one to start it and set the example so that those around you can follow.
