Keep reading but start doing as well. Pick something. Try it. If it doesn't work learn from the mistakes. Tweak it. Try it again. Try something else. Make mistakes. Learn. Adjust. Keep trying. Keep doing. Don't stop until it works.

I'm not sure what would work in your market or with your specific resources and/or abilities. My kids (about your age) have started with flipping used clothing. They find name brands at the local thrift stores, on Ebay, or at swap meets & flea markets and sell them online for pretty big profits. There are several aps devoted to selling used clothing.

Read these 2 books, and then don't read another book until do something with the knowledge gained.

Don't Just Build a Business... Build A Life!
Haha Yeah I have red TMF , about to buy Unscripted too :) I am not sure if Reading only these two is the answer, because you can learn a lot from other books as well. Personally, I think Reading a lot of different books and working to achieve what you want and desire is the right way to go

The point of my reply was to get you out of the learn by reading loop and into the learn by doing loop.

What would you do if you were in my situation?



ih you had to take just one advice from this forum, this would be this :

don't wait,


do the things you want to do as soon as possible

dating girls, asking for things , whatever


people say" patience is king, wait "



no this is BS. time is precious and you can never go back to do the things you should have done



i am 41

i have lost too much time

i have lost time with girls, with everything

this is lost for ever

i will never know what succes with young girls is or whatever

you don't understand because you are only 16 years old so you don't know the value of time

you think you are eternal




so let's take an example . i hope you will get some wisdom despite your young age


in the back to the future movie, the old biff is telling his young self to read and use the almanach

because the almanach will make his young self rich in the coming future

same thing here


by following my advice , you are achieving the success that i have never had and will never have because this is too late

i am living my youth through yours


date these girls, win that medal, start that business

Holy shit that was deep, I'm currently 19 y/o.

I don't think 41 is THAT old, your body still functions pretty good (if you're healthy, I believe), I hope you're not sad or depressed because of the wasted time you mentioned in this post.

I don't believe that anybody can truly seize the moment 100% of their lifetime, sometimes we have self-doubt about what we're doing and spend time on a downard spiral hating ourselves, what I like to do is this: I try to calm myself down, then I recognize that I was in a negative thought pattern and that it doesn't diminish my worth.

Since a lot of people on this forum have the mindset to serve others, realize that when you love yourself you care and do more for others naturally. Wish you the best! :D
