Most people who meet me don’t realize this, but I was bullied mercilessly in school, I was ‘depressed’ for most of my teens, I had zero self-esteem and absolutely no social skills.
Everything I have today, from building a business, to the friends I’ve made & the girls I’ve dated, to the confidence to simply talk to people, I had to work my ass off for.
It was quite a journey – These are some invaluable things I picked up along the way.
▪ Lesson 1:
The only things you need to worry about in life are:
– Acquiring Wealth (Business)
– Maintaining Health (Diet & Gym)
– Finding Love (Social Life & Sex Life)
– Protecting those things once you have them (Learn to Fight & Shoot, and understand how politics effects you)
Anything else is a distraction that will lead to unhappiness & regret.
No one is perfect but if you can make progress in all of these areas you will gain an enormous sense of fulfillment and it will be impossible not to feel happy.
▪ Lesson 2:
It’s VERY easy to be distracted.
Drinking, Drugs, TV, Video Games, Negative People & Funny cat videos absorb 90% of the average persons attention, which is why they inevitably end up not achieving anything in life & end up failures.
Pay less attention to externalities and more attention to yourself. If you can cut the distractions by even as little as 50% you will beat most people.
▪ Lesson 3:
90% of people are not worth your time and are not worth listening to, largely because they are focused on the list mentioned above.
Ask them what they want to do with their life “idk” – they aren’t going anywhere.
This is why my friends list went from 3,000+ to 100. This is also why school is a waste of time, taking the advice of an overweight teacher with an ugly wife who makes $30k a year & has never achieved anything will not help you achieve anything either.
You have access to the internet, you can learn how to do anything you want direct from source.
▪ Lesson 4:
Equity is everything.
If you don’t own whatever you are working on, you are just making someone else rich by building an asset for them.
If you work a job, it’s better to accept less pay for more equity, but only if you believe in the company. If you don’t, you should not be working there. Also your co-workers are your competitors not your friends, there’s only room for 1 person to get that much desired promotion.
Of course my advice would always be to stop trading time for money like a chump, and start a business where exponential growth is possible.

? I had to learn most of these things the hard way because no one ever told me better. There’s no reason you should too. ?
Goodluck & keep on winning.
