money isn't everything in this world... But don't get me wrong without money you're dirt.

Skills, grades, achievement often will not get you as far as knowing the right people and making them like you. Basically interpersonal communication and relationship is far more important once you get out of school, often times even in school. And i don't mean smashing bitches...

Huge misconception ^^^^^

Money is not everything, money can get you just about everything, there is a difference. You don't get money overnight you need some kind of work/service and then comes the money. Your work/service is more important than the money, because the more your work/service is valued the more money you make.

Honestly I wish I was given much more advice growing up....

But I think one of the most important values to have is a respect for time. Henry Ford said that "people get ahead during the time that other people waste"... That's the truth. Respect time. Try to learn as much as you can early on and keep on learning and try to experience as many new things as possible, meet as many people (ppl that are worth your time) as you could, to get ahead of the people wasting their time with "keeping up with the Kardashians" and "Basketball wives". Don't waste time !!

There are two kinds of people in this world, leaders and followers.
I myself am a leader, if you want to become a leader follow me.

Money doesn't buy happiness… but if you're already happy, it makes it a lot more enjoyable.

Don't invest your skills or time in the service industry. You will never become rich or wealthy by doing a day job. You will never be wealthy on salary. Become interested in products—products that add value to everyday life. Work your ass off and surround yourself with people who are better than you. Be opportunistic. Recognize potential. Trust your gut.

Being angry is a choice.
People will do or not do what they want to. So give them their freedom and see what they do.

That all this shit is temporary and the only thing we are promised is death so why stress small, irrelevant dumb shit
Also this world is huge so instead of being scared to try new things or travel exploration truly is the key to life and finding ur on truths instead of letting people dictate twisted fiction of the past to control the sheep masses

Actually, most of these advices were given to us before. We were just too stupid and immature to listen.

lol i was gonna say, if the wrong person is saying this stuff, it's not gonna work

probably active guidance is more helpful, especially when you're young. like actually engaging as opposed to just talking and "where do you see yourself in x years", condescending and shit. like if you're gonna help, help, don't throw quotes around

i'm bitter doe
