    First of all... Think of how old are you? If your still fairly young think of what you can and WILL do to not only improve your life 5-10 years ahead but achieve your goals... If your older, just imagine waking up and you went to the mirror and you were 18 again... What would you do? What advice would you want to be given at that age?

    If I could be 18 again, in hindsight I'd break up with my girlfriend.

    If I was 18 again, I would buy a SHIT LOAD of bitcoins and became millionaire 2-3 years later.

    I actually have this frame of mind on a daily basis. It seems like results come so slowly, though, and too much time is wasted on experimentation. I keep a positive frame of mind through self talk by reminding myself that it's all part of the life-long learning process.

    What would I tell myself at that age?

    1) Stop making and using drugs you stupid son-of-a-bitch you are 1 year away from being sentenced to 7 years in prison and DON'T EVEN KNOW IT YET!
    2) Stop having unprotected sex with club rats while on speed and E.
    3) Listen to your mother.
    4) In 4 months your best friend is gonna take you to a playground by a church to smoke crack for the first time. Do not do it. He's become a drug informant, is no longer your friend and the reason why #7 is gonna happen.
    5) Listen to your mother.
    6) Don't do drugs.
    7) Stop being such an insecure hard headed pussy, grow some fucking balls and change your life now. There are a team of 2 swat trucks loaded with rifles and flash grenades, 30+ cops, 8 DEA agents, 5 chemists and a helicopter getting ready to raid your parents home in a few months and fuck the rest of your life up cause you're a stupid fucking son of a bitch and insist that your immortal and untouchable which YOU ARE NOT. You could be busy developing real skills like web design and marketing but instead you're trying to build a master meth empire like the dumbest fucking idiot alive.
    8) When you first get to county don't mess with that guy with a prosthetic leg. He's in for murder, you'll be too stupid to realize it and are gonna get your ass pulverized when you realize 1 legged men are much stronger and scarier than they look.
    9) Don't egg your bunky on to fight when he steals your shit on C block. His 4 friends are a blood, they're gonna drag you into a bathroom and put you in a neck brace.
    10) If you had just listened to your mother you could have avoided all this shit but you didn't.

    That's what I'd tell myself at 18.

    What's really amazing is if you take just >>1<< good piece of advice in life, it's amazing how much bullshit you can avoid down the road.

    All it takes is 1 WRONG DECISION, and your future can literally be changed forever.

    Certain bad decisions are so subtly seismic, and the consequences can ripple through your life forever like a 15.0 megaquake.

    Some good decisions are the same way. Like the first time I sat down and started working for myself... I never knew so much good would have came from it.

    And life is all about decisions. Constructive decisions vs destructive decisions. You can make 100 constructive decisions and create a life you never could of dreamed of. But all it takes is 1 bad decision to ruin that forever.

    I would think "Fuck, not this all over again". I'm only 20, but at that time I was way fatter, just heading into the army and had no real experience in IM (though I was cool when I made like 5-10$ a day with some shadier than shadow methods). Although, maybe I could do a few changes, and not end up exactly as I am now.

    I would have focused on a single method. I tried a shitload of things back then, but never sticking to one. I only recently realized that I have to focus on my strengths and forget (or outsource) the rest.

    I wish I had known that pretty women's sh*t also stinks. It took me a long time to figure that one out. It would have saved me a lot of grief!
