46 K enmark International Knut S-C Öjermark Bill Gates Cont. Rule 1 : Life is not fair - get used to it! Rule 2 : The world doesn't care about your self- esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

47 K enmark International Knut S-C Öjermark Bill Gates Cont. Rule 3 : You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both. Rule 4 : If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
