Download the key points of this post as PDF. 36 Life Lessons 1. Cut Losses Quickly 2. Life is too short to deal with negative people\/those with bad attitudes, make it fun and exciting and only deal with people who are positive and worth being around. 3. Money can\u2019t buy happiness, but it can buy freedom which allows you to find happiness and to get money you need to study hard and become an expert in at least 1 subject 4. Travel EVERYWHERE and learn about our amazing world and meet amazing people everywhere! 5. Luxuries are nice, but the happiest people I meet are also the poorest as they are grateful for just life itself so never lose sight of what really matters in life 6. We\u2019re in a very unique time in history with the Internet being the most important invention in centuries since the printing press\u2026don\u2019t waste this opportunity, try multiple strategies and see what fits your personality best 7. People think billionaires are cool, they\u2019re not\u2026the few I\u2019ve met and hung out with are weird as shit and mostly miserable, imprisoned by their $\/fame, I only have a few million in the bank, whenever it starts getting to 8 figures I donate more to charity and always will to keep everything balanced (somewhat) 8. Dream big and study hard, there\u2019s NOTHING you cannot accomplish if you put your mind to it no matter your background or where you live 9. Don\u2019t let ANYONE tell you your limits, you\u2019re capable of much more than you or anyone else believes and you might surprise yourself if you\u2019re patient enough with any goal 10. Have patience and don\u2019t expect success right away\u2026don\u2019t give up at the first sign of an obstacle, when you do get successful, you\u2019ll appreciate those obstacles that helped mold you 11. Focus on your health, not just physical health, but also mental health too, it matters\u2026I wish I had realized this sooner. 12. Don\u2019t be so strict and uptight every day of your life, let loose and have a cheat day every now and then, you only live once (that\u2019s not to say live every day like it\u2019s your last, that\u2019s a recipe for disaster) 13. I\u2019ve heard of a thing called work\/life balance, but every single successful person I know doesn\u2019t have it\u2026how badly do you want success? 14. A normal life is boring\u2026most millionaires have multiple streams of income, don\u2019t just rely on one strategy for everything, have multiple businesses and projects and learn to multi-task 15. Reward yourself when you do well and accomplish your goals and don\u2019t berate yourself too badly when things don\u2019t go well, use the bad experiences as lessons to do better. 16. Making millions isn\u2019t as easy as most on the Internet claims, but it is possible to do within a few years as proven by now SEVERAL of my students\u2026and I have even more six-figure students 17. Get on social media and use it to amplify your voice\/show off your expertise, it\u2019s good to be real in this day and age, so many fakers afraid to show their real names, ENTIRE track record 18. Become an expert in whatever you love, it doesn\u2019t matter how weird a niche it is, there\u2019s $ everywhere these days 19. If you focus on what you love and fail you\u2019re still happy, but if you succeed at something you don\u2019t love you\u2019re not happy, hence why it\u2019s okay to fail 20. Failure is a part of EVERY journey, don\u2019t be scared of it, embrace it and learn from it 21. You don\u2019t have to fail spectacularly to learn spectacularly, aim small, miss small and then adapt in the pursuit of success 22. You don\u2019t have to take out loans or steal or use leverage, if you\u2019re diligent, hard-working, competent and patient enough, $ and success will come to you in the long run even if you\u2019re conservative with your $ 23. The best thing you can do is be happy and self-sufficient, THEN worry about helping others 24. It took me a while to find my passion in teaching\/charity work, but now that I\u2019ve found it, I\u2019m going hardcore with both\u2026what do you love and are you focusing on it enough? 25. Most people never discover what makes them truly happy and that\u2019s truly sad, don\u2019t make that mistake 26. Work on building your own dreams, not someone else\u2019s 27. People are worried about who they hang out with and who they get influenced by, don\u2019t hang out with anyone every now and then and focus on yourself and get influenced by your heroes 28. The world may be ending soon and there\u2019s nothing you can do about it so just maximize every day and be grateful for what time we do have 29. Don\u2019t worry about things you can\u2019t control, don\u2019t play CNBC-type guessing games, focus on things that are predictable and then try your best, like short selling pump and dumps or dip buying them for morning bounces on the first big crack! 30. Be honest, helpful, hard-working and trustworthy\u2026why this is so hard for so many people I just don\u2019t know? Be the change you want to see in the world. 31. Get a mentor ASAP as it helps speed up your learning curve\u2026I never had one so now every day I try to be the mentor to you that I only dreamed of\u2026one of my top students Steven Dux has turned $27k into $900k+ by learning from multiple mentors in my Trading Challenge which has sped up his learning BIGTIME! 32. Let the world hate on penny stocks and weird niche strategies, the mainstream are mostly idiots and don\u2019t get angry about the idiocy, be thankful for it since it opens up opportunities 33. Search for what makes you happy and embrace it, even if others in your life don\u2019t, YOU are in control of YOU, nobody else is. 34. Give back to those who need a little extra help, whether it\u2019s your money or time or a little TLC, it\u2019s all helpful and appreciated and you\u2019ll feel good about yourself too 35. Value friends, family, people who you are close to, don\u2019t shit on any relationship as life is long and the best things take time to develop\u2026I\u2019m in year 10 of my teaching career and only in the past year or so has my Trading Challenge chatroom really become extraordinary with several millionaire traders alerting\/mentoring in realtime\u2026it took a LOT of hard work\/time to get to this spot 36. Just be real, you don\u2019t need to pretend and when you do pretend not to make mistakes or be human, people know you\u2019re faking it so cut that shit out and people will respect you more for just being human\u2026no matter what some may say, we\u2019re all human and very alike so have a little more faith in humanity!
