The continuation of Part 1.
21) Observe the world around you for a few minutes a day. Watch people walking and think about who they are and where they’re going.
20) Detach yourself from material objects and possessions
19) The world is small – be careful of what you say and who you say it to
18) “If I’d only known then what I know now…”
17) A little bit of alcohol can be a good thing. You don’t see perfect strangers talk to each other on the bus – you see them talk to each other at the pub.
16) Become an expert in your field or what interests you by reading as much about it as you can.
15) Don’t ever feel as if you’re missing out on anything. Just create another opportunity.
14) Never get tied down or agree to something just to be nice.
13) Remember what it’s like to be a child, with little concept of time, sex and money.
12) Smile, a lot.
11) Without need, there is no real desire.
10) Don’t watch scary movies until your parents say you can.
9) Adults are the same as kids, in essence. They want to be accepted, entertained and protected. Use this knowledge to your advantage.
8) Between the ages if 12 and 21, listening to your parents is super important, but almost impossible.
7) Gut instinct is not to be taken lightly.
6) Wisdom and experience are very different things.
5) Understand that with many people, age hasn’t made them more clever – it has only made them more cunning.
4) Learn as much as you can from others’ mistakes. Learning from experience can be rough but will happen often too.
3) Remember that different people are affected by things differently. Surfers watch the weather forecast for the waves. Real estate agents watch the weather forecast because nobody likes to go to an open home in the rain.
2) It’s always easier to point out what’s wrong than to discover what’s missing.
1) Never trust everything you read.
