Please heed this advice that I’m about to share. It will keep you from extreme pain and suffering and will save you precious time. After all, time is all you really have.
First, always, always, always be yourself under any circumstance. You do not have to hide your intelligence just to make others feel better or comfortable.
Under all circumstance behave yourself. Proper decorum will save you from countless disciplinary actions and sever humiliation that will be exceptionally damaging to you.
Don’t harbor anger. Your parents did the best they could with what they new. You will find your own way.
Set you goals according to your dreams. Do not sell yourself short.
When your earnings get into the 7-digit range, do not let it distract you from pursuing your goals. Also be prepared for the tremendous resentment that will be coming your way. Know this: it was not the money that made you miserable.
Don’t spend too much time on wine, women and song. Know when to tap on the brakes. Women are a fickle lot that I have yet to figure out. So you are on your own there (tread lightly, don’t get trapped).
Steer clear of people that drain your energy (succubi, negative people, etc).
Life is a delicate balance, do your best to find it. That is where happiness lives.
You will hear that “no man is an island”. That’s not true for you. It is by choice not chance. Deal with it.
Only be concerned with things within your control. Worrying about anything else will tear you apart.
Do not waste your time trying to fit in where you don’t belong or are not wanted.
The majority of your communication will be misinterpreted or completely misunderstood. This will lead to offending a great number of people and then you will experience the haters. Do not let them get you down.
Stay the hell away from aspartame.
Naivety is not your friend, experience and learn as much as you can.
Your mind and body are tied together in this place; take care of both and do not try to separate them.
“Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.”
– Confucius (551- 479 BC)
