These are suggestions for young men aged 14-19. I have a son in this age group. It has been and continues to be a goal of mine to hand down knowledge for my descendents. My parents handed down certain stories and truths from my grandfathers that hold true today. It would be awesome if I had this type of insight to the great men that led our family to the success they have had.
1. Fail early and fail often - Take challenging obstacles on. It develops your resilience. Get used to failure as a way to learn. Examples: Try a sport you've never competed in. Join a chess club or math club. If you do diametrically opposed things, you will notice better how success is acquired.
2. Talk to old men - They know shit. Hang out with them long enough to get some info you would never get otherwise. They want to impart knowledge. Let go of your mommy.
3. Get fit - Find a manner that you enjoy which will keep you physically fit over your lifetime. Try a wide variety because your body will fail you at some point. You may not always be able to run, but you need to maintain a way to stay fit.
4. Don't listen to feminism - Identify what feminism is. Intent of your actions do not matter as much as results.
5. Commit to an implacable Christian morality - It's okay to be frustrated by it. Keep praying and talking to God.
6. Focus on math and science - The other school subjects don't matter nearly as much. Get good at STEM stuff. It will always be important.
7. Develop man skills - Learn how to fix basic home issues. Change your own oil. Fix plumbing issues. Have an attitude that you can fix anything. You will screw some things up. That's okay, if you learn from it. Get man tools and learn how to use them.
8. Develop a harem - Get good at holding the attention of many women. Do this early. Plan on marrying early. Find the one that fits best with your family and listen to your family when contemplating a spouse.
9. Enjoy humor and beauty - These issues will help reduce stress in your life. Stress will happen. You will need an escape. It's an old cliche to stop and smell the roses, but it matters.
10. Read - Read the Bible, history, fiction, science fiction, autobiographies... Connect these stories with your world. Learn the lessons and apply them.
