7 UNCONVENTIONAL ADVICE FOR YOUNG MEN
1) Cut toxic people from your life. (Friends/Family)
There comes a point in time where you have to put all the bullshit aside, cut out people who make you feel shitty, step up to the plate and grow up.
Toxic people are those around you who want to hold you back, discourage you from pursuing your dreams, or sabotage your success in any way.
Cut the dead weight, losers are losers and for the most part will remain forevermore.
Find those that challenge you for they are your true allies. Read – The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
2) Lift weights
Being Jacked is the ultimate confidence booster when it comes to “your place” in the society.
Your body is the best investment you can ever make, especially when you’re young and your testosterone is still high-it’s the only thing you know for sure you’ll always use.
Lifting weight also gives you a feeling of deep pleasure and accomplishment a skinny person will never know or understand.
Lift weight and cultivate strength for it is the thing that will bear you through the storms of this world. Read- Bigger Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Male Body
Get a part-time job, save up your money and travel abroad.
Go to Asia, Europe, or South America.
Do it to broaden your experience.
You will learn more in a year of traveling than you would learn in a 4 or whatever years of college.
4) Forget College
College is a big joke!
Going to college is for those who don’t have any purpose in life.
What do you think made Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Henry Ford, John D. Rockefeller and other highly successful men the world has ever known forgo college?
Because they had a purpose in life.
College is simply a breeding ground to produce an expendable, disciplined, debt-laden labor force for the state or corporations.
A college degree does not guarantee a ”good job”.
A ”good job” does not guarantee safety.
The only safety guaranteed is what you do for yourself.

Young men are addicted to Facebook and other social media like dope-heads are addicted to dope.
Get rid of the Facebook nonsense and concentrate on tangible life experiences that actually make a difference.
Facebook and other social media does nothing but waste your time and kills your creativity. Same for Video games and TV.
The world is waiting for you. Go get it. Leave all the lazy zombies and social media addicts to their smartphones and laptops.
Do not acquire school loans, do not get auto loans, do not use credit cards.
Speaking of school loans…..
There’s been no shortfall in borrowing for college; Student debt continues to pile up and has nearly doubled over the past decade to $1.3 trillion.
According to Peter Thiel-the PayPal co-founder- College just isn’t worth the financial investment.
Don’t get entrapped into the debt slavery. If you can’t pay cash for it, don’t buy it. Debt is slavery.
7) Wait on marriage- Build You.
You are too young and there is so much time.
Your number one priority should be making money and building a life for yourself.
Getting married young will be the biggest mistake of your life
The divorce rate is absurdly high (about 40 to 50 percent of married couples in the US divorce and the divorce rate for subsequent marriages is even higher).
If your wife is to decide she wants a divorce she can have all the benefits of being married and none of the drawbacks.
Wait until later in life before you make the decision and sign your life away.
