18. Put Yourself First

During my teenage years was when I first began to realize that this was “real life”.2

It seemed like such a simple concept, but it was really quite layered.

This is real life, my only life, and I’m the only “me” that has ever existed.

I’ve got one shot at taking myself as far as possible, and achieving greatness.

To do that, I figured out that I need to put myself first.

Of course, I try to help and love others whenever possible, but at the end of the day I put my needs first and do whatever I can to reach my goals.

If you want to survive your teenage years as well as be a success later in your life, you need to learn how to put yourself first now, before you make a habit of letting others walk all over you.
