What words of advice and encouragement would you give to someone just starting out in HR?

I’ve been blessed throughout my life by people who saw potential in me and gave me an opportunity. My advice for everyone is to look for potential in others, don’t always count on your expectations to be reality and to cheer for the underdog. Give second and third chances, learn through mistakes, love people more than positions and don’t sweat the small stuff.
