18 Things I Would Do At 18:
I was a dumb 18-year-old. I thought I had the world figured out. I didn't.
I stayed up till the wee hours. Drank every liquor invented.
Partied non-stop. Woke up after noon.
Surfed the web aimlessly.
Read BS self-help.
PHASE ONE: GET MY MIND RIGHT
ACTION #1: Break the chains - I wish I made the decision earlier. I didn't. I was scared. Anxious. Nervous. I knew once I made the decision, there was no going back.
Don't be like me.
ACTION #2: Cut off every negative person in your life.
Scroll through the contacts in your phone...
Delete any and all names that fill you with doubt and negativity.
ACTION #3: Condition your mind to embrace the producer mindset instead of the consumer mindset.
Consume 20% of the time. Produce 80% of the time.
Visualize yourself already having the money as you write.
Does it work?
PHASE TWO: EDUCATION
ACTION #5: Learn Copywriting
Greatest skill = Sales
Master it and you master the game of money.
It's really that simple.
ACTION #6: Learn how to code.
Second greatest skill = To build.
If you know how to do both, you become a machine who can print money at will.
PHASE THREE: MASSIVE ACTION
ACTION #7: Use your copy and coding skills to build and sell. Build and sell. Build and sell.
Then sell, sell, sell.
Experiment like crazy until you achieve *initial* success.
ACTION #8: Make a list of 50 people who've done what you want to do.
Use your copy skills and your *initial* success to position yourself as a "high-value" young kid who is HUNGRY for MASSIVE success and is willing to do whatever it takes.
Ask to apprentice under them for FREE.
One person will bite.
ACTION #9. Create 5 bank accounts. And allocate a certain % of every dime you make to the following accounts:
A. Self-Education Account
B. Travel Account
C. Investment Account
D. Fun Account
Note: Most of your $'s should be reinvested into your biz.
Ideally people who are a few steps ahead of you.
It's easier to make a $1 million/year when everyone around you is making $5 million.
ACTION #11. Make a list of everything that scares the living fuck out of you.
ACTION #12: Don't listen to people who say, "Oh you have your entire life to figure it out. Take it easy."
Before you know it, the years will pass you by.
And you won't have nothing going.
ACTION #13: Don't become a self-help junkie.
Stop reading for the sake of accumulating knowledge you think you'll use "one-day."
Any worthwhile skill is learned in the trenches.
Not inside a book.
ACTION #14: Do take long walks every day.
Morning or evening.
It may lead you to discovering the secrets of the universe.
Or at the very least, teach you detachment and focus.
ACTION #16: Don't listen to anybody who isn't where you want to be.
ACTION #17: Do make time for fun.
More from Life
1. Self-Respect is paramount
Without self-respect, nothing else in life is possible. Discipline, integrity, work ethic, values: they're all made possible through self-respect. Guide your actions with the question “What would a self-respecting man do?” Then do that thing.
2. Everything must be earned
You are owed nothing. The world will rightly treat you as such. You must believe you are capable, and you must believe you WILL achieve your goals. But you must never rely on others to do the work for you. If you don't earn it, it isn't really yours.
3. People are ultimately self-interested
People will behave in whatever way is most expedient for them. It isn’t right or wrong, it’s just true. People want their problems solved, and they want to feel good. Give them those things and you’ll never be wanting.
4. Compounding powers the world
Success is the result of your daily actions. The effort you put in today, whatever the endeavor, will build on itself over time. Investment, strength, knowledge, the rules are the same: 1% of 100 is much less than 1% of 1,000,000.
The UK is filled with memorials to the dead of wars, of disasters, of lifeboat crews and atrocities. We are a landscape haunted by attempts to remember the brave and the innocent. Villages, towns, businesses, communities: all grouped together to pay for plaques, statues, gardens
I have a terror that in our desire to get 'back to normal' we will forget those lost and things lost during the current pandemic. There's not an enemy they were overcome by; not a single flashpoint of tragedy. Those lost to the pandemic are an uncomfortable reminder of failure
Rebecca Solnit talks about hope only coming from knowing history. People may be optimistic about the future post-covid-19, but that's just desire and dream. For us to build a hopeful future we need to acknowledge and feel what has been lost; to repair and grow, not just erase
The thing is, I don't know if our communities know how to remember what is lost, not in ways that are meaningful to all of that community. Religion is a great enabler of remembrance, but that's not something everyone has. I'm wondering how we fully inhabit our collective sorrow
It begins with a Golden Retriever named Neesha
Neesha and her little pup sibling Harley were lost on an hike, taking in the outdoor air in the Wicklow Mountains.
If you've never been to Ireland, you should understand that these are 1) right near the city where most of the country lives and 2) the most beautiful thing you've ever seen
The dogs had bolted, and the owners had only ben able to find Harley. They thought Neesha was dead. But miraculously, two doctors on a hike in Wicklow found Neesha almost two full weeks later
She lost a third of her body weight, but now she is at home, snuggled up and warm with her family.

I don't think it's a coincidence that BDA posted the Seven Days In May trailer on the same day President Trump tweeted this out:

Nārāyaṇa Upaniṣad envisages Nārāyaṇa as ‘Kālaśca Nārāyaṇa:’, the very embodiment of Time, ages ago. The measurement of Time by Bhāratīyas is as ancient as the very God Himself. Count of many future ages has also been done even from very ancient times.
Since these calculations aren't dependent upon the birth & death of any individual, but are done based on astronomical science, they are thoroughly scientific. Unfortunately, during the British rule, the Bhāratīya way of Time measurement was casted as an illusion...
...with an evil intention to establish their command. Though it is 70+ years since independence, blindly time is still measured as BC & AD or CE in this religion-less land without even making any attempt to comprehend the magnanimity of Bhāratīya Time measurement methods.
