What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

"My father, an agrarian from rural Upstate New York, would often tell me growing up, “I cannot promise you’ll succeed if you try, but I can promise you will not succeed if you don’t!” That has stuck with me since grade school, into college and something I carry with me today."
