How to be 18 again ———————— When you turn 18 you are a free man. You can kick off the shackles and go about your life as you wish. But the plan that is likely laid out for you is a plan destined to fail, so you've got to make the right choices to get a jumpstart on a life of health, wealth and happiness. Regrets are pointless, but if for some reason I was put into a time machine and found myself 18 years old again this is what I'd be glad to know.
Assuming you are a westerner, especially an American, getting married young will be the biggest mistake of your life. As a young man you can be free to date around and play the field. Tying yourself to one woman with a Government enforced noose will do two things: Wait until later in life and pick the right wife before you sign your life away.
Your soul-mate Kimberly isn't one in a million, at best she is about one in a hundred. She can be replaced and it's not true love that you feel for her it is infatuation.
If she wanted you then you would not want her so much but because she does not want you you want her. We want what we don't have or what we can't have, when we have it we don't want it. You don't need a psychology textbook to learn that, just a little Bold and Determined It is way past time. Women in our feminized classrooms are consigning generations of our sons to years of misery and diminished futures. The evidence is everywhere. Few dare notice it. I said it, you read it.
My freshman year of college I had a female English teacher who had the build of a linebacker and, rather than teaching us English, taught us feminism. Every day she would talk about feminism ad nauseam. I wasted a great deal of time in college, aimlessly drifting through because that's what you're supposed to do. The cold, hard reality is that you aren't guaranteed a job or a career and your college degree is going to be the most expensive piece of paper you ever purchase.
A college degree in this day and age usually guarantees one thing: I never learned anything in college and with good reason: It's not a coincidence that recent college grads look like glassy eyed morons as they serve your coffee.
Smart people simply don't belong in college and unless you are going to school to become a physician or to get a degree in a highly technical STEM field college is almost completely unnecessary. Every successful entrepreneur I know says the same thing: Make money through the power of the internet.
Look around you, what is one thing you see every person doing? They are all playing around on the internet on their laptops, smart phones and tablets. Everyone is online, you are online right now reading this, I am online writing this.
The difference is that I am making money online and most of you are playing online. Kill two birds with one stone, play and make money. If I were 18 years old right now this is exactly what I would do: I don't even personally like those cities but it's undeniable that they are the hub cities for young expat entrepreneurs.
Go where the talent is. I was blown away. Not by the story, or the acting, but by the photography. The film takes place on an island in Thailand and when I saw the movie it looked to me like paradise. I never forgot that lagoon. Too bad I could never visit a place like that, I thought.
You see, when I was a young man I was unaware of the possibilities. I thought it was college, job, two years into the job I could have a one or two week vacation, then I would retire. I never thought I could visit far away countries. Right then and there I made my plans and I visited that island in Thailand that I saw in the movie. Nowadays I even live in Thailand and I save a ton of money doing so. It's not impossible, frankly it's quite easy.
As a young man you should have a few things going for you. Those things are high testosterone, high natural growth hormone and high IGF-1 levels. Take advantage of those now because when you're older those levels diminish. Now is the time to get in the gym and build your body naturally to it's peak. A body built when you are young will stay with you for a lifetime.
Do not take steroids as a young man, your HPTA levels are still developing. They'll tell you college degree, good job, marriage, retire rich.
All they're missing is a little thing called evidence. That's a get-rich-slow scheme and it works as well as get-rich-quick schemes. That is to say, it doesn't work. Now is the time to get to work building your future empire. Laziness is a learned trait and ass-kicking is also a learned trait. Get to ass-kicking instead of sittin' around on your ass. Stand on the outside and look in to make the best decisions.
There is a 3rd option, a 4th option, a 5th option etc. As an outsider you will be able to see things clearly in a way that group-followers never will.
Your life is as good as you make it. Work to build yourself a future and you will have a nice one. Forget about the retirement scam, work on your own future, build yourself. Your future is yours to make, but your future will come whether you build a good one or a poor one. The people who say this are morons. Money is the 1 necessity of life.
Forget about greed, money is need. Make it so you can do as you wish and have the highest amount of freedom possible. Keep multiple bank accounts with balances in each and always keep some cash on hand. Never, ever keep all your financial eggs in one basket. I learned this lesson the hard way when my American bank closed my account for no reason read about it here , leaving me low on funds.
Thankfully we have the internet and can make contact with people from all over the world. Let me explain in perfect English the reality: Feminism is about women trying to be men without any responsibility. Kick dirt in the face of feminism. Working in offices is for women and girly-men. A sales job will teach you how to make money and a manual labor job will build your body while you get paid. In fact, there are quite a few manual labor jobs that will pay you big, big bucks. A young man with a strong back could work 6 months out of the year doing manual labor and spend 6 months free, traveling, working on an entrepreneurial gig, or doing whatever you want.
Stay out of debt at all costs. If you don't have the cash don't buy the item. Pay everything upfront, no payment plan no credit. Think of credit cards as delayed payment debit cards.
As a hustler I've done many things. You should really believe it when I tell you that, 'cause I'm not being sarcastic. I'm a total hustler. What that means is I've hustled to make a buck and I've hustled to change the world and I've hustled to take revenge — but it's always hustling. I've never had a career or a single goal. I've never been formally educated. To get things together, to make a living, I constantly have to hustle.
You don't even need a career, you can do many, many, many things throughout your life. Frankly, they are right to not believe in you because until you have walked the walk you are just a daydreamer.
Until you have accomplished what you have set out to accomplish there is absolutely no reason for anyone to believe in you. All you need to do is realize that no one believes in you and don't seek approval.
Approval is for dogs, men take what they want and don't ask permission. I remember vividly in my high school that all problems were the fault of white men.
