It’s funny how school teaches you everything you need to know to get a job but there’s not one class on managing money or how to be financially independent, go figure

Just because you fail, doesn’t make you a failure. Just because you lost, doesn’t make you a loser.

We need stupid people in the world. They show us how ignorant a human being can be with all the resources of the 21st century.
Don’t make a habit out of choosing what feels good over what’s actually good for you.

If feminists want equality, next time I go on a date I’ll be expecting the woman to pay for dinner and every time after that the chances of it happening again need to be 50/50.

Social media has created a generation of self obsessed zombies who care more about the number of instagram followers gained than the quality of the relationship they have with their own family members. Yes, please post another photo of your half naked body so all the teenage boys who ~like~ it can depict you as the sex object you promote yourself to be and not the heart warming teenage girl you wish to be treated as..

If you don’t watch another video all year make sure this is the last one.

Highly recommend going into a dark quiet place and just listen to the words spoken.

When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money.

That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact, and that is - everything around you that you call life, was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.

The minute that you understand that you can poke life and actually something will, you know if you push in, something will pop out the other side, that you can change it, you can mold it. That’s maybe the most important thing. It’s to shake off this erroneous notion that life is there and you’re just gonna live in it, versus embrace it, change it, improve it, make your mark upon it.

I think that’s very important and however you learn that, once you learn it, you’ll want to change life and make it better, cause it’s kind of messed up, in a lot of ways. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.

You can get everything money will buy without a lick of character, but you can’t get any of the things money won’t buy: happiness, joy, peace of mind, winning relationships, etc., without character.

I’m telling you, that you only got to hit life hard one good time in the mouth. And it will never challenge you, the way it challenged you before.
