Humility means doing your best in your present circumstances.

Humility means doing your best in your present circumstances and situation, working together harmoniously with those around you.  Arrogance, on the other hand, is doing whatever you please, without thinking about anyone else.  Arrogance is wrong and will bring one misfortune.

Pursue studies with high ideals

Please do not spend your youth avoiding hardship and taking the path of least resistance.  Please seek out difficult challenges and work hard.  And if you are going to take on hardships, let it be for the sake of high ideal.  Do not stay closed up in your own tiny shell, pursue your studies with the high ideals of helping your friends and contributing to society and humanity.  This is where the true significance of the pursuit of learning lies.

Live a life crammed full of memories

Youth is a truly, wonderful thing.  Unfortunately though, this is often something that's hard to appreciate when we are young.  Life passes by quickly.  Before we know it, we are old.  That's why in our youth we should be as active as we possibly can.  Rather than a life of blank pages, live a life crammed full of memories -- of battles well fought and wonderfully diverse experiences, not to leave behind any history.  Just to grow old (uneventfully) and die, is a sad way to live.

Rather than complaining, be the first-class individual at that job

The most important thing is to first become indispensable wherever you are.  Instead of moaning that a job differs from what you'd like to be doing, he said, become a first-class individual at that job.  This will open the path leading to your next phase in life, during which you should also continue doing your best.  Such continuous efforts are guaranteed to land you a job that you like, that supports your life, and that allows you to contribute to society.
