Life Advice All Men Must Hear {Might Hurt Your Feelings}

March 3, 2024
Kindness is better than pretty. I learned this lesson the hard way. I also learned other lessons the hard way because I had to experience them rather than follow what I heard. Don’t let life happen to you. Learn from my experiences so you can live your best life and take life by the balls.

Critical lessons I learned

  • Kindness is better than pretty. I learned this lesson the hard way. I dated a girl one time because she was hot. Unfortunately, she was horrible, and I realized this month after dating her. I also learned that it doesn’t matter how beautiful or spicy a woman is; if they are not a good person, you should not be with them.
  • If you act like a pu$$y, you’re going to get fu@#ked. You won’t accomplish anything if you don’t stand up for yourself and grab life by the balls. Life will bend you over and give you the business. Life is not fair, and you’ll get out of it what you put into it.
  • The world does not revolve around you. Fear of other people and what they think of us holds most of us back. But once you understand that everybody else is not thinking about you or concerned about your actions, you will be free to take life by the balls and squeeze. You’ll be allowed to make decisions based on what you want.
  • How you react to adversity is more important than the act itself. A lot of times we are collateral damage in other people’s lives. Bad things and challenges in our lives add context and meaning. How you handle issues and react to them sets people apart. Put down your baggage so life gets beautiful. Use Better Help to get your life on track and to be happy.

  • Money does not buy happiness, but it makes life easier. If you constantly worry about money, taking money off the table improves life. You need to figure out a way not to be broke.

Keep in mind that having money doesn’t mean you’ll always be happy, however. Don’t chase external validation. Practice gratitude.
  • Your health is your most valuable asset. Without it, nothing else matters. Protect it. Don’t smoke weed, don’t drink excessively, and stop doing self-destructive things. Eat healthy foods, exercise, and invest in yourself.
  • Invest your time wisely. If you do, you’ll get further ahead than your friends. Stop surfing social media and watching p***.
  • Not all friends are good for you. Outgrowing friends is essential. Surround yourself with people who are uplifting and moving in the right direction. These people need to cheer you on when you’re successful as well. Make sure people are not holding you back from your dream. Don’t kiss other people’s asses, either.
  • Respect yourself. You need to respect your time, body, and mind. Exercise daily, get 8 hours of sleep, and drink 120 oz of water. How you live will dictate where you end up, and it’s nobody else’s responsibility.
  • Do better. If you’re unhappy or think you’re not where you need to be, put in the time and effort required to get there. Do the work. Remember that failure is a good thing. Embrace it as part of the process and understand that until you’re truly pushing yourself and sometimes failing, you’ll never know the next thing you should do. Failure is an opportunity to learn and pick yourself up. It’ll make you stronger.
