...Life

People tend to make life a lot more difficult for them than they need to. It seems like most get lost in the details and don’t really see the main goal or purpose in life. Life is simple, and for those lucky enough to have figured out how to succeed, they will truly benefit. There comes a point where you basically just stop and put everything aside in your life. You ask yourself some simple questions. What do you want out of life? What makes you happy? What makes you unhappy? Although simple, these questions are crucial in setting the stage for the future. If you think you know what you want, think again. Life is trial and error. Make mistakes and make them while you’re young. Learn from them. Life lessons shape the decisions you will make in the future. There’s only a couple of main ingredients necessary to do well in life. The first is hard work. Work your balls off and don’t be lazy. Teach yourself to not give up, to never give up. The second is faith. You need to be confident in your abilities. Don’t let people bring you down. Figure out what you want and plan out the main steps you need to get there. Don’t get lost in the details. Don’t stress yourself out too much when you’re young. Have fun, get high, be in love, but don’t do anything that’s going to get in the way of the main steps you need to get to your goal. Take life day by day but don’t ever do things “for the moment.” That’s fucking dumb! You need to think before you do something and think of the action and consequence. Tell yourself you will get caught. Is it worth it? It’s ok to make mistakes every now and then but keep focused. Be a good person, don’t be an asshole. Karma will get back to you eventually. Education is the most valuable possession you will ever have. Work hard now, enjoy yourself later. We only have one life. How do you want to be remembered? Leave your mark on the world.
