To youths: If you want high level jobs, level up your work.

Regardless of what age or which generation we are in, I think there are some timeless values and work ethics that we should all have – humility, learn from everyone and in every situation, taking the initiative, ask, believe that there’s no tasks too big nor small, do our best in everything, help one another, persevere in the face of adversity, criticism, and failure.
