  2. I would take my personal development more seriously and cut back on procrastination as much as possible!

    Bro, you asked me what I would do if I could go back ten years.

    I think stuff happens for a reason but knowing what I know now, the first thing I would do is cut out all social media except youtube, I understand for you that might mean losing touch with some of your friends who're on there 24/7.

    At 16 I understand this is easier said than done, but I would completely forget about girls, I'd also forget about trying to be cool with people, have 2-3 close friends you really click with and that's it, nothing wrong with having more "friends" however but keep them at a distance.

    I'd take my studies more seriously at 16, 2 hours per day at a minimum, hit the gym consistently, start a side hustle like phone flipping(about to do that myself very soon, like this or next month).

    While you're doing that I would urge you to learn survival skills because your 16 is quite different from my 16 with the pandemic and the world going crazy, if shit hits the fan we're going to have to know how to survive.

    I'm clueless in this area myself but it's something I'm trying to learn, watch youtube videos on physical skills to become self reliant, it could be as simple as fixing the sink, or a bit more difficult like starting a fire in the woods.

    That's what I would do and some other stuff I won't mention if I was 16 again, at 17 was one of the best times in my life so I wouldn't want to change a thing but for the sake of putting myself in the best position in the future, this is what I would do.

    Ps: This is the most important point and if you do this you really don't need anything else because you'll be put on the right path you need to go, get right with God.

    Ask God to point you in the right direction, no matter what you plan or do, if you're not in tune with God, it's not going to matter.

  5. 1. Dont take drugs, dont drink alcohol and get rid of all possible addictions (pc/phone/tv/porn/...)
    2. Focus on health (gym, food, cardio) efficiently. Starting early with consistency allows you take it slow (3x/ week) while not take a lot of time
    3. Discover your talents and use that as input for your future career/employment/self employment path. Read EFFICIENCY from wallstreet playboys (PM ill send it to you)
    4. Learn to work and be responsible with your money. Make it a habit of saving 50% of your earnings. Learn to hustle. Learn about investing.
    5. Dont pursue relationships with women. Work on yourself first. Do semen retention until you are ready (25-30)
    6. Train your social skills. Dont be a hermit. Go out at least once a week but dont fall into the smoking/ alcohol/ drugs trap. Get 2-3 good male friends for the long term.
    7. Get a firm base into spirituality whatever that might be for you.
    8. Read GETTING THINGS DONE to learn how to efficiently organise information in order to get things done.
    9. Make a strategic action plan for the following 5-10 years. (Mission, goals, action steps, tracking, monthly and yearly reviews). I can PM you a PDF that guides you through the whole process.
    10. Have fun in life. Be optimistic. Make jokes. Find humor in daily life situations. Dont be a whiner.
    11. Dont be an asshole or get all worked up coz you are well ahead of most people. Stay humble. Do some charity work here and there. Do a good deed on a daily basis.
    12. Teach yourself order, cleanliness and have a good appearance. Have some self respect. Dont be the classic youngster with a messed up room, dumpster car and a wild growing beard.. Make you room, clothes, future car, and face/ body spotless.
    13. Develop your character. Dont be a pushover. Learn to be a man. Have boundaries and values. If you have trouble with this read No More Mr. Nice guy.
    14. Become handy. Dont be the classic millenial with two left hands that cant hold a hammer or fix a leak. Learn to do stuff with your hands. Have at least an interest in 1 thing such as woodworking, car mechanics, survival skills, plumbing, ...

    Thats about it. You are young. You have a shitload of time. Put it to good use. Dont make excuses. Dont procastinate. Life is a GIFT.

    The most important advice is this:

    Wake up every morning and REMEMBER DEATH could happen at any moment. It is closer than you think. This might be your last day. What would you like to be remembered as? How would you want to put your time to use? DO NOT WASTE TIME.

    Also I quit social media long ago...I only had a Facebook account which I quit a year ago... Now it's only whatsapp... I really like your learning of physical skills advice. This year I decided to lower my atheism and look the other side and it's going well

    Phone flipping is buying and selling phones for a profit.
