At the age of 16 I was a complete imbecile.
That was 10 years ago and I kind of feel guilty due to the serious amounts of time that I’ve wasted over the years.
Time I’ve spent doing stuff that didn’t benefit me whatsoever and really got me nowhere in reality.
My teenage years were spent partying, hanging out with friends, binge-drinking, fighting, trying to get laid, playing video games, pornography and acting tough in school.
I had no clue about the potential seeds of greatness that are scattered throughout a man’s youth.
Truly If I would have known the things that I know today at the age of 16, then I would’ve truly become an unstoppable young man.
But alas, my life has balanced itself out and it seems that almost all things that ever went wrong were meant to happen in order for me to receive greater understanding.
However that doesn’t mean that my personal experiences can’t serve to weaponize the new generations against their own mistakes.
The age of 16 is a perfect age for a young man to be in.
You’re not really a child anymore and yet you still have your entire life in front of you.
You’re still untainted from the daily miseries of adult life and yet there are quite some adult things that you might’ve already experienced or seen.
So if you are 16 right now then take my advice and start empowering yourself into a GREAT teen.
Without further ado, here are 10 things I wish I knew at the age of 16…
I wish I knew this all those years ago back in High School.
But I actually did and so do you.
If you’re a boy between the age of 12-21 you’re probably jacking off like crazy.
Most boys in this age category are highly addicted to porn and they have been for a long time.
If you’re one of these boys then you should stop right now.
Cut it out of your life completely, the pornography as well as the masturbation.
It is a loser’s habit.
Porn robs you of your vital energy, mental clarity and strength. It basically turns you into a weakling.
It destroys your confidence, gives you anxiety, depletes your testosterone and literally steals your beauty.
And girls will notice that something is seriously off with you, they will feel disgusted by you.
Are you 16 years old, still a virgin and not getting any attention from girls at school?
Stop masturbating fool.
I wish I knew this in High School after wasting week after week on Twitter, just posting crappy bullshit and being reactive to everyone else’s shit.
Back then Facebook and Instagram were barely on the scene yet and so I ended up quite sane in the end.
But nowadays these kids in High School got Facebook, Instagram, SnapChat, Twitter, Reddit, LinkIn, YouTube, Whatsapp and all this other crap at the same time.
If you’re 16 years old then let me tell you something…
Social media will destroy your life.
It will give you anxiety, feelings of inadequacy, scarcity and an overall lack of fulfillment.
Social media is like a drug, you’ll need a constant fix of validation from other people on it.
If you’re 16 you need to live life my man.
Live life for real!
Stop watching what other people are doing on social media and instead create a real life social circle.
People won’t judge you for living a real life, in fact people will respect you.
Some of your friends will even follow you. (see what I did there 😉
I know what its like to be a teenage boy.
You love to sleep in all day.
This is because you’ve got no energy.
You’re wasting precious sleeping time lurking at girls on your Instagram timeline.
Probably wasting energy while beating your meat as well.
That is why I told you before to cut out the masturbation and the social media and you’ll be fine.
All of a sudden you’ll fall asleep in time.
And you know what happens when you do? You’ll wake up earlier and become a morning dude.
The importance of waking up earlier is something that I’ve highly underestimated throughout the years until I got into writing.
I’ve realized that the early morning hours (before 9 am) are very special.
They inspire creativity in people and actually facilitate the creation of great work.
I’ve you got hobbies like for example playing a musical instrument, then these early morning hours are your best friend.
I personally love to get up at 5 am but if you’re 16 years old then you probably still need some extra hours and that’s fine.
Just try to wake up earlier consistently even if it is 10 minutes earlier each day.
Your life will seriously benefit from just having more free time on your hands during the day.
#4 Meat is the natural human diet
Meat is the best source of food that exists for human beings.
It is so nutritionally dense that a man can basically eat meat for the rest of his life without being deficient in any mineral, vitamin or macro nutrient.
The vegetables are healthy hype is just a myth.
No better yet…
It is a blatant lie.
Vegetables are barely absorbed by the human body, that is why you have to poop enormous amounts of crap each day.
When you eat only meat all of this changes, you barely poop anything and yet are always relieved.
This is because meat is so bioavailable that the human body almost absorbs all of it.
There is barely any waste in an all-meat diet.
Compared to vegetables which are genetically modified foods that didn’t exist before 10.000 years ago since humans started farming.
Meanwhile humans have been eating meat for millions of years.
Once humans start eating only meat they become almost superhuman.
They become physically healthy, grow into their best natural physique and they become mentally strong.
Humans are basically carnivores with omnivorous traits in case of starvation, but all humans thrive on meat by nature.
The proof of this is in the way almost all human children reject all vegetables on first contact.
Parents literally have to force vegetables down children’s throats for years until they start to develop a genuine appetite for them once they become young adults themselves.
All human children literally have to be indoctrinated into believing vegetables will make them big and strong before they even consider trying it.
However children barely ever reject meat when they first taste it.
The proof is in the pudding, humans have developed a natural taste for meat and a disgust for vegetables.
That is why even vegans and vegetarians replace their meat with soy based substances as “meat replacement”, just to still enjoy foods with a meat-like taste.
Humans have developed a natural palate for meat and I wish I realized this a long time ago.
If I knew the amount of lean muscle mass I would build on this diet, I would have followed it strictly 10 years ago.
However the information just wasn’t out there 10 years ago and all diet information was biased back then.
How times have changed…
Take advantage man!
#5 Don’t procrastinate EVER
Procrastination is from the devil.
It is such a horrible waste of time, knowing you should do something important but meanwhile never really getting to it.
Throughout my life I’ve had a constant battle with procrastination and I advise all you younglings out there to never start procrastinating at all.
Keep your childish spirit high and just do what you gotta do.
Want to become the best athlete out there?
Do what you gotta do and you know exactly what that is.
Work your ass off.
Oh you want to become a rapper?
Start writing lyrics and start recording mixtapes.
We all know what we gotta do to get where we want to be.
We got to stop procrastinating and put in the work.
#6 Don’t play too much Video Games
Dude I gotta tell ya.
I still get sucked into these suckers from time to time.
Love me some Red Dead Redemption 2 and that shit can get addictive as fuck too.
That’s is why I’m telling you 16 year olds out there to limit Video Games.
When you’re 16 you are supposed to live life and do some stupid shit that you can laugh about 10 years later.
Don’t waste all of your time on Video Games man, not a lot of chicks really dig that shit.
“Man who cares about chicks dude… I got ma fortnite.”
Dude if you’re 16 years old then chicks should be all the fuck you care about.
If you’re not then it means you are deficient in Testosterone.
You need to get out into the sun and get some Vitamin D.
Limit your time online.
#7 Don’t take career advice from anyone
If you’re 16 years old then you’re entering a threshold in your life.
A stage where people around you whether they are your parents, friends or teachers will pressure you into choosing a career path.
Don’t listen to them whatsoever.
They might make it sounds like there is some urgency to it but there is not.
At the age of 16 you have all the time in the world to still orientate towards your true path. Don’t try to make sense out of the advice of others.
Follow your intuition and hold on to it with both hands.
What do you really want to do with your life?
You have plenty of time to decide.
Just try different things out and see what you truly like…
This is my advice.
And this is your life!
#8 Stop chasing girls
I’m not joking.
And I know what I said… “If you’re 16 years old then chicks should be all the fuck you care about.”
Might make me sound like a hypocrite, but it doesn’t make me wrong.
Girls are trash in 2019, hell they already were in 2009.
They’re all a bunch of little attention seeking sluts and you should stop chasing them.
Let girls chase you while you chase yourself, this is the way of men.
Men chase success, purpose and greatness in the world while women chase men.
This is the way nature works and this is the way girls will perceive you.
If you’re always busy working on your school projects, exercising, sports, practicing your hobbies, earning money with your side job, having fun with friends and being at parties then the girls will chase you.
Girls love guys that are always active.
They love guys that are always busy in the world.
Most teenage boys do not have the clairvoyance to see this.
Instead the roles in this day and age have reversed.
Boys are chasing girls all day long on Social Media while girls are chasing careers in school and university.
The roles have changed and if I realized that this was happening 10 years ago then I probably never would have chased any girl during High School.
I would have chased success, money and my purpose all day long.
I would have saved more money, worked more hours, studied harder and built a great body way back in the days.
Girls aren’t worth it man, take it from a man who has already experienced it all.
Girls are trash.
And if you got a girlfriend right now… don’t take her seriously.
Your relationship won’t last.
When the right time comes then the right woman will come but that won’t happen at the age of 16.
Enjoy life brother…
#9 Friends don’t exist
You have acquaintances, associates and followers.
There is no such thing as real friends.
When I was a teenager my father used to say this to me all the time.
“Friends don’t exist”
Once you become a grown up you will realize this pretty fast.
Everybody just cares about themselves, their own money, their own careers, their own relationship and their own well-being.
Your friends won’t stay behind waiting for you if you fail in school.
They will go on and have great college experiences with or without you.
Some of them will do much better in life than you and others will drag you down to their level.
Whatever it is, they’re not really friends.
People use each other for certain purposes and that’s it.
The only one that you can truly rely upon is yourself and your family.
Your family is your true friend.
They are your people and the only ones that truly care about you.
And even within your family you can start peeling off layers until you end up with a handful of people that are actually always there for you.
This might sound harsh but it is the reality.
Ask any adult out there how many friends they’ve got and see with how many names they’ll come up with.
Teenagers don’t notice this because they prioritize friendships above anything else but mark my words little brother…
It is just your age, you don’t know any better.
Reality is what it is.
Friends don’t exist.
#10 Jobs are for suckers
You should think about what you really want from life each and every single day.
Whether you want to start your own business, chase your dreams, travel the world, become an athlete, create art or become an expert in a certain area.
Let the ideas marinate inside of your head and don’t share them with others.
Other people will always try to dissuade you from living a great life, they want you to take the exact same mediocre road that they’ve took.
The road of School – Boring job until 65 – Retirement- Boredom/Loneliness – Disease – Death.
The same old road for all loyal mindless tax payers without purpose.
This is not you, I know you’re like me that is why you’re here!
You want to live life in glory and your own truth.
You want to do whatever you want to do.
Unlike the others who always followed orders.
You’re not a follower but a leader, you’ll lead the way and others will follow you.
Stop listening to others about what you should do.
Don’t listen to all these hard working miserable motherfuckers.
They will never feel fulfilled with their lives because all jobs are for suckers.
