What piece of advice changed your life?

I really like the quote by Gandhi: “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” At different stages in my life, when I am about to make a decision, I search my mind to see if I am living up to this wisdom. It helps me self-reflect and self-examine.
