Do what it takes so YOU can be happy.
Don’t date that girl if everything she does makes you miserable.
Don’t work that job if every day pisses you off and stresses you out.
Don’t give so much of yourself to others if those people never give anything back.
Pat each of your pockets at least three times before leaving.
Phone, keys, wallet
It’s easier to stay in shape than to get in shape.
Don't be proud of being an asshole. Be proud of being a good person.
Even if THEY think they are giving back to you, but YOU don’t perceive it that way. Their opinion of what they give to you is irrelevant. It’s about whether YOU feel that they are giving to you.
Because people give in different ways (and some people think that everyone should want the same things they do so they won’t understand why what they give you isn’t what you need).
It’s okay to be totally average. With social media and most modern advertising in general designed to make you feel insecure to buy products etc. it’s totally okay to just be average. Not everyone is going to be Tom Brady, not everyone is going to be Einstein. The world runs because of truckers, painters, builders, electricians, teachers, shop attendants, machinists etc. chill out and be a good person.
Just because it’s offered doesn’t mean you have to take it.
Never forget to date your wife.
Husband: “Hey, do you wanna go out on a date with me…?”
Wife: “Sorry, I only married you as a friend.”
Never sacrifice your integrity – it will inevitably be what saves your ass down the line.
For all those young men out there just about to enter adulthood: I will not sugarcoat it. Your actions always have consequences, good or bad it’s up to you. But there will be consequences and they will get you on a path. So choose wisely and think about what type of lifestyle you wish to have. Consequences will follow you all your life and you have to learn to live with them.
On a similar note, there will always be unintended consequences and regrets no matter what path you choose. The would’ve/could’ve/should’ve are applicable to any life. And remember hindsight is NOT always 20/20. Most things are out of your control and dwelling on the past just robs you of enjoying the present.
To add to this. Always make a choice or a choice will be made for you.
Never knock another man’s hustle and treat the janitors w the same respect as the CEO’s.
Don’t destroy your body working for a company, it’s not worth it in the long run and the only people who will remember that you worked late 20 years ago are your children.
Realize that no one is ever going to care about you and your success more than you will. If you want to be successful and achieve great things in life, you must push yourself to do things you don’t always want to do. Decide what success looks like to you and what kind of life you want to live, create an action plan for creating it into reality, and then begin to implement it immediately.
Friends, relationships, careers, hobbies, interests, health, status – nothing is permanent.
When things are bad, just remember, “this too shall pass”.
On the other side of the coin, don’t take the good times/things for granted. Stop and smell the roses.
"No." is a complete sentence.
Learn to fix things around the house and do basic work on your car.
Learn basic skills so you can do basic stuff on cars, minor house repairs, ect. But be humble enough to know when you need help or a professional to do it.
Don’t overpay for something simple you can do, but don’t try something you can’t do, fuck it up and make it worse
It’s okay to recognize and accept that you have anxiety and/or depression. Your mental health matters.
