I remember at 15, I became a man. One hard look in the mirror, I told myself I would become successful, in my own terms.
I did, and learned a lot in those years.
Waking up at 5 am and working out.
Trying to learn about business and how corrupt all of the systems of wealth like jobs and college really are.
Making true friends who aren’t just friends but companions.
There are things I wish I knew at that age, so that I could be a hell of a lot more today.
15 Things Every 15 Year Old Should Know
1 ) Time Is A Lie
The truth of time is that is exists, but only to an unfixed position. Time was not meant to be told that “it’s 7:59 AM right now, I have 2 minutes ’till work!” but rather it was meant as “I can see the peak of the sun, rising from the horizon, it’s time to work”.
If you Can see the difference between those two comments, hats off to you.
When we look at the human biological clock, also known as the circadian rhythm, it is measured in hours according to the light environment. Not by seconds.
2 ) The 3 Second Rule Will Make You Successful
The 3 second rule is that if you need tasks to get done, you count to 3 and on 3 you get up immediately and start that task.
If you’re feeling lazy, count to 3, and on the 3, you get the hell up and do stuff.
If this rule becomes a part of your life, and you limit laying down for no reason, surfing the web for no reason, using the toilet too long for no reason, then this rule will save you hundreds of hours of the course of years.
I could’ve done so much more by now if I knew about this method earlier..
But this rule is truly deadly to unproductiveness and laziness when you know that…
3 ) To-Do Lists Are Your Greatest Friends
Write down all the things you need to get done the next day.
Remember the first point? Time is not relevant in terms of being absolute (like saying, I will wash the dishes at 7:30 am), but it is very much needed when talking about time of day (Such as, Morning, Wash the dishes) This way your cardiac rhythm and your natural sense of time is not disrupted by clocks, and the seconds ticking.
You wake up and do the things you need to get done. Once you finish one task, there is no break. You must move to the next one. If you catch yourself wasting time on the computer, in the washroom, on the couch, use the 3 second rule and get the hell up.
Note: My secret is that once I do a task for enough time, usually a month, it becomes a habit, and then I don’t write it down because I do it anyways
4 ) The Internet Is Your Enemy and A Murderer
How many millions of young men have we lost to the Internet. The answer is in the 3rd word of this paragraph.
The internet is pure bullshit. It will strip you of your pride, get you addicted to porn, and make you lazy and hazy.
You like the Internet because it’s a substitute for not considering absolute time. You like to sit and browse because you don’t need to know if it’s 5:36 or if its 11:59, all you know is that if it’s Morning, afternoon, or night. You also know the quadrants of these times, but not the specifics. You could say it just got dark, so it’s early night time right now. The Internet fulfills this need, but it does so much horrific damage.
Internet has become an anchor for entertainment island, where the price for the rides is your life, as time, and where the enjoyment is shortlived.
The Benefits Of No Internet
- More Clarity
- More Testosterone
- More Power
- More Control Over Anger
- You Are HAPPY
- You Are More Attractive
- The Less You Lose Your Eyes To Glasses
- THE MORE INVALUABLE RESOURCE YOU PRESERVE, TIME
- More ‘time’ you have to do other things on your To-Do List.
All these benefits are perceived, meaning it isn’t a bullshit list I copied off somewhere. All of these things I’ve been observing for years, I just wish I knew these things when I was 15.
No it doesn’t matter that you’re also learning, watching useful videos, and picking-up a skill, unless you…
5 ) ONLY Use The Internet For Business and Learning
The Internet can teach you things you will not learn in 20 years of schooling. That is because the internet is not something controlled, or extremely regulated. If you want to, you can even find real news on there.
Not a single second should be for entertainment. Limit yourself from installing or downloading applications unless absolutely needed.
This one tip is the tip that will make you the dollars you dream of. Go learn a skill, learn many.
If you catch yourself browsing on youtube, playing games, watching movies. Cut off your internet bill and live without it for a month, until you’re ready.
6 ) The School System Is B.S
School, what a weird word. Say it out loud slowly. Doesn’t it sound like a foreign word?
The moment learning at school became for profit and not making kids better skilled humans was the moment it became useless. That was hundreds of years ago…
If everyone has to go to school by law, and then everyone gets to college and gets a degree, that means everyone will end up poor.
If everyone was a millionaire, millionaires would become the new middle class of today, get it?
And if EVERYONE went to school and got educated, would EVERYONE get the best jobs too?
School is not meant to help you succeed. It’s meant to put money in your professor or teachers pocket, and also put fat cash in big brothers pocket so big brother can fund his passions like war and making people poor.
7 ) Pornography Will Destroy Your Life.
The most detrimental challenge for the young men of today is pornography.
If you stop watching Porn and stop jacking off, you will feel like..
You’re on a Miracle Pill Made For Greatness.
Sperm in your body is so precious, that one drop of sperm is worth 40 drops of blood. Sperm is a vital system in your body that rejuvenates you, it stays in your body and keeps you healthy, and gives you power. It is not infinitely replenished like scientists say.
Some insects die after one time of ejaculating. Because sperm itself is life force. If you waste it jacking off, you are committing slow suicide. Some animals die after they ejaculate and some even die in the process of ejaculating.
Don’t waste your term watching filthy things on the internet. You will became a slave of your desires. Soon the only thing that will sadden you more than being enslaved by pornography is the depression that comes with it
That’s not a joke. That’s serious.
Since there is a full article to write on this topic, I won’t write the full article here, rather i’ll list the points. Ask your questions in the comments.
Benefits Of Quitting Porn and Masturbation.
More Attractive You Look
Less Insecure You Are (Real issue with men today)
Your Body Responds Better To WeightLifting
Easier To Gain Weight And Muscle
Easier To Cut And Control Hunger While Dieting
Insane Power Surges (If You Stop For A Week, You Will Notice You Get Insane Power Through Your Body Like You Could Rip A Tree Out Of The Ground At Random Time Like When You’re Walking)
People Begin To Subconciously Fear You
People Begin To Conciously Respect You
Girls Notice You More
You Improve Your Health
You Don’t ‘Always Feel Tired’ Anymore
You Feel Like You Could Do Anything You Want To
You Start Wanting To Do Things Like Read and Write and Learn and Workout
You no longer stay desensitized to touch, and hormones in your body aren’t artificially stimulated
Remember this, the bad effects of watching porn are enough to scare you straight.
8 ) Music Is Bad For Your Health
There are tremendous benefits of not listening to music. Including not becoming desensitized to sound. That’s a big deal.
Why You Should Quit Music
It Releases Dopamine Without Earning It Which Is Destructive
Its Addictive (as much as drugs)
Wastes valuable time
You stay too much on a ‘trigger’ or ‘switch’ mode. Now you need songs to start your set in the gym? What?
Your emotions are externally influenced by music, which is not a good thing (Remember feeling good is bad if you’re doing it by watching porn?
Music is stupid, stupid, stupid. It is a business and that’s what it remains. Modern music, olden music, country music, background music. All pure crap.
Do yourself a huge favor and cut it out of your life.
Note: The only real music is the chirping of bird, or the roaring of lions.
9 ) Tell Your Doctor Everything
Always be brave, tell your doctor every concern you have. Let them check. Let them diagnose, let them affirm say “no to problems” to something you think you have.
I wish I had asked my doctor when I was 15 if I had Male Pattern Baldness. Now with so much thinner hair, I could’ve saved a lot if I started treatment earlier.
I also used to have the most intense pain in the shin area.. I did too much training for Basketball, all that jumping with my 26 inch vertical caused tremendous stress on my legs, and over months I developed this problem.
I was living in so much pain for months, It would get hard to walk stairs.
I used to cry at times because the pain of each step was like a man hitting my inner shins with a baseball bat
I eventually went to the doctor who showed me to a sports doctor, who told me some stretches which fixed my problem in a week.
Get regular checkups, blood tests, and testosterone tests.
Remember though, you learn about your problem from your doctor, research it at home and try natural remedies firt, if the problem doesn’t go away, then you can get medication or tablets.
For serious cases, like early Male Patern Baldness, from your research you will learn that there is only a cure that suspends the hair loss. in those cases you have to hurry because there is no going back.
10 ) Don’t Trust Your Doctor, OR Find One You Can
Big Brother has put so many restrictions, fees, and otherwise that doctors are forced to either give you B.S medications that don’t work. Or they don’t give you what you need at all so you keep coming back and they can keep earning, partly to pay big brother.
Your relationship with your doctor should be of using them. Learn what problems or deficiencies you have from your doctor, and spend the whole week learning about it.
When I had PTSS (a.k.a Shin Splints) I spent months learning about it beforehand, trying to find remedies, finding out why it happened. When I went to the doctor, I knew exactly what he was talking about and that he wasn’t bullshitting me when he said that the muscles in my legs are extremely tight.
I know when a doctor is lying because I research my problem beforehand. When a doctor says “Use this medication for your acne” and after several months of using it nothing has changed. I don’t trust them anymore because they’re too scared to give me the real medication and give me low concentration B.S medication that doesn’t work.
Natural remedies are always the best. Acne is treated by honey, cinnamon and egg. I’d say this treatment is better than the cream they prescribe.
11 ) The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Body Is Workout
Physically, and to some extent mentally, the best thing you can do in your teens is working out.
15 is the perfect age to start working out. No weight on the bar. Just the bar. Use help and learn how the gym works.
Don’t believe the crap like working out stunts your growth. Arnold started working out when he was 15, and he grew to 6′ 2″ ( six feet 2 inches).
if you’re insecure or afraid of what people think. Start going at 5 am like I did. I did it because I didn’t like crowded gyms filled with dummies (My local gym is a fitness sports center, not all hardcore lifters, idiots come and lift 2-5 minutes and leave).
This is the one thing I’m proud of. Now 2 years later at 17, I out lift big dudes at my gym on some lifts, and my body is strong solid, and pops from my shirt. Can’t keep the girls from starring.
12 ) Learn How To Eat
If you’re fat, learn to fast and eat less. It’s much easier if you don’t watch porn ( Refer to rule #7 )
If you’re skinny, eat everything in sight that is even remotely considered good. White toasted bread with peanut butter, good. Oatmeal, good, Eggs, VERY GOOD.
Whatever the case with you, you will try to only eat high protein foods. For instance, 2 slices of white or brown bread is 6 grams of protein. 2 tbspns of peanut butter is around 6 grams of protein. Now a glass of milk to that is something like 20+ grams of protein in total. Add in 2 eggs and you have a breakfast of 32 grams of protein.
To learn how to maximize protein while still enjoying food you must learn, research and try things yourself. I might make a post on this soon.
Something that helped me a lot was the app MyFitnessPal. It’s free to use and you can scan, or search anything and add it into your daily plan, the app tells you how much calories and macro you’ve consumed.
13 ) Get Tested For Male Pattern Baldness
While I would say only a handful of you will experience Male Pattern Baldness in your teenage years, its important to get it checked before your hair starts thinning or falling out.
Male Pattern Baldness is where your hair follicles shrink therefore your hair gets smaller and starts falling out.
This is because of a form of testosterone called DHT. This is converted from testosterone and is common in men above 35. Usually men start balding around their 30s. Half of all men experience Male Pattern Baldness.
The stupid thing is there isn’t an advanced cure.
There is only in definitive medication meant to suspend the losing of hair for a while.
“I got a full set of hair and no balding in sight!”
True, I thought the same thing, and in return for that assumption I was told I needed to be on finasteride forever.
Basically finasteride is the only “cure”. All it does is lessen DHT being produced. So your hair wont fall out as much. It does not reverse the process. Only holds it in place. Once you get off it you start losing hair again.
If your father has a bald head, or his father, or your great grandfather ever had bald heads at the top and the front where the hairline usually is.
You’re going to experience it too most likely.
Ask your doctor to see a hair loss specialist. Tell your doctor that your father is bald (even if he isn’t) to get an appointment with a specialist.
They can usually tell within minutes if you’re losing hair. If not, they may require bloodwork and tests to find out.
14 ) Learn To Love God
The most certain thing in this world is the existence of God. Something cannot come from nothing.
Likewise this universe was not created by 2 ever expanding atom. What B.S.
God is real, if you observe. You notice the animals, how intricate their designs and uses.
You notice the systems, like water and sunlight, how they are being used by humans, and only because they’re made in the most perfect place possible.
A man without God is a heedless man.
A man of God is one with morals, respect, and high ambitions.
15 ) Start Reading Improvement Blogs
I was 15 when I started reading blogs that surrounded me in an environment of improvement. They are like the substitute of real friends. The proper blogs will teach you everything about life.
They taught me to never fucking trust anyone.
Taught me to fuck the world and no listen to it, it’s full of dumb asses that want to drag you to hell.
That anger is very real and trying to ‘eliminate it’ or as they say in anger management class, ‘control’ it, will only make you hurt more.
Don’t trust the mainstream.
Don’t trust your closest friend.
Only trust your gut, it’s the only thing trying to keep you alive.
Remember, we’re not here to sit around, we’re here to watch the lifeguard drown in the pool while we embrace the storm.
