Everything feels out of place. Where are your keys? You feel like you never know. You are not a mess. You are a human. Stop apologizing for being fallible. You want to improve:
No one can make you cry. No one can use you. You can cry and be justified, you can feel used and be justified, but you are not a tool that people can readily control. Embrace your emotions and own them. Pushing yourself to excel is one thing, but forcing yourself to make drastic changes is another.

Reblogged this on i've never taken a nude and commented: Not only do I think that these 19 points are brutally honest, they also address the fact that 19 is a fucking weird age. At 18 you enjoy the new found freedom of legality as you buy cigarettes and porn and can basically do everything but drink alcohol and rent a car.
At 20 you officially leave behind your angsty teenage years as you head off for bigger and better things because you officially no longer have that damn youth-enizing get it? The quote above IS me. I laugh when people mention me crying, as if it is a myth worthy of Big Foot.
I spout cynical views on love and relationships, with the argument that I would rather be that way than be a heartbroken, hopeless romantic. But the truth is, I do cry. I cry in the shower when I think about how much I miss my grandma. I cry in the car when I put in the new Ed Sheeran album. I cry when my mom tells me they found cancer in her body.

I am still dabbling on business ventures, most of them have failed hence why I am still relying on a job for my source of income. What kind of career advice would you recommend an ambitious 19 year old that wants to succeed in business without having to go to college?
I am currently one and a half years out of school since high school. Look forward to your response sir thank you so much!!! Hi Jason, these are really tough questions. For one, I would recommend you to keep your day-to-day job, while simultaneously trying to build your existence as an entrepreneur. Use of these experiences to avoid similar mistakes in the future and to be better in the future. Not everything what you do will succeed, so give yourself the freedom to fail every once in a while.
It will help you to know what really needs to be done to be successful. What is your life story and how you got to where you are now Steve? Was college big for your success in life? What tools do you recommend for success? Yes, going to university was in my opinion very important but not necessarily in a context of acquiring knowledge — instead it was of tremendous importance for my own personal development. It always made me push my boundaries to continuously strive for more.
At the same time, I think simply having a diploma or some other academic degree can open you many doors but if you drop out of college and work really hard and really focused, you can probably reach the same or a similar level like a student. Thank you so much sir. So I am always looking for advice like this. Sir Steve, stay blessed.
My prayer is that I would grow to review all these points written down in my book to check whether what I reaped is actually what I sowed by following these advices? But please I have a little question? A black female friend wants to pursue a course at the university but it seems that course is dominated by males? Your kindly advice could help. Your female friend that is starting to study at the University should never ever allow anybody to stand in-between her and her goals.
There will always be haters, or people who do not like what you do. So the best thing is to ignore all these people and to keep following and pursuing your goals no matter what.

At the same time, it could be quite helpful to see the difficult situation as a challenge. If your female friend is able to overcome the competitive environment at this particular university, she can also succeed everywhere else in life. So if I was in your situation, I would encourage her to ignore these obstacles that are seemingly too large to overcome and to keep pursuing their goals.
And eventually, she will quickly notice that even though the course is dominated by males, there will be a lot of people who are interested in forming a friendship with her and other good people who are more than willing to support her.

It confronts us with many fears because we are standing in front of the unknown. Where you simply are too afraid to move on. But once you do, you will see how great it was and how it all contributed to your growth as an individual.
You say that you would like to stay in your hometown. So this should be our number one priority. At the same time, it would make sense to have a backup plan and to also keep your eyes open for a job in the city. At the same time, doing so may allow you to continue looking for a job in your hometown. Sometimes, it takes a couple of months or even years until the right job turns up exactly in the location where you need it to be. This only makes things worse.
