Life Lessons for Young People

From Rick Thomas:

Life Lesson 1 - Your starting point will determine how you end. Start here: your parents are not perfect.
Life Lesson 2 - Life is not fair – get used to it!
Life Lesson 3 - The world doesn’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.
Life Lesson 4 - If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
Life Lesson 5 - Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.
Life Lesson 6 - If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
Life Lesson 7 - Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent’s generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
Life Lesson 8 - Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they’ll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to anything in real life.
Life Lesson 9 - Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.
Life Lesson 10 - Television is not real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
Life Lesson 11 - Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.
Life Lesson 12 - Your pain is your opportunity to mature. No matter what happens to you, it is on you to decide if you’re going to live for God or live for yourself.
