Key Learnings:

Attitude goes a long way

“It’s your outlook on life that counts. If you take yourself lightly and don’t take yourself too seriously, pretty soon you can find the humor in our everyday lives.”

Don’t take things for granted

Betty White thinks many people “have a tendency to complain rather than celebrate who we are.”

Negativity consumes

Betty White believes we should consciously choose joy every day.

If you don’t have a passion, get one

We all have to work to live, but we shouldn’t live to work. In fact, White suggests finding hobbies linked to what your passionate about.

Know a woman’s worth

“Whether you are a woman or you love one, you should remember that she’s more than just flesh and bone,” White said.

Remember age is just a number

White says mental attitude plays a huge part in the aging process, “Don’t try to be young. Just open your mind.”

Enjoy your cheat days

“I take care of my health, I don’t abuse it,” still White says you have to remember to live a little!

Real men practice chivalry

Chivalry might be fast disappearing, but it goes a long way, White reminds gentleman everywhere.

Don’t forget to laugh

Finally, and most importantly, make laughter a priority every single day, White said.
