What Is The Best Advice You Ever Received?

December 13, 2010 | 83 Comments » | Topics: Awesomeness, main

best advice ever given

Here is a collection of the best advice passed off to various individuals. If you want to contribute to the list, feel free to add it to the comment section and I will promptly add it to the list below.

 

You can be whatever you want to be. If you dont make it, your effort probably stopped with just wanting.

Always leave a place a little nicer than you found it.. 

At 20, my friend encouraged me to go back to college. I was working full time and a single parent. I told her “going part time, it will take me ten years!”. She said, “So, what will you be doing in 10 years?”. At age 30, I got my bachelor’s degree. At 33, I finished my MBA. I’m 55 now and doing well. Thanks for the kick in the pants Shari.

Stay away from PEOPLE THE COMPLICATE YOUR LIFE!

Be careful to whom you give advise; the wise don’t need it and the foolish don’t listen

If it looks like a duck & smells like a duck, it probably is a duck!!!

Your rent or house payment should never be more than 25% of your take home pay…

When you don’t have a choice on something, you can still choose you attitude.

If you lay down with the dogs, youll get thier fleas

Listen to your mother.

My father, when he was teaching me to drive, emphasized to me to not trust a driver stopped at an intersection, until you can see the whites of his eyes. It has kept me accident free, (except for once when I failed to do this), for 45 years of driving.

Don’t spend more than you earn, And try to earn at least your age in thousands

To listne twice as much as you speak.

It takes twice as many muscles to frown than it does to smile so you should smile more.

If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything!

To “Pay Yourself 1st!” out of your paycheck…which means tuck some away in Savings! It’s worked out great for me!

Don’t focus on the destination, enjoy the journey.

Everything about life if a choice. Make good choices.

Don’t stay in a bad marriage “for the children”. All it does is teaches the children how to have a bad marriage.

Just because you make mistakes, doesn’t mean you are one.

  • Teddy Lahon

    I hope someone finds this and it sinks in. My older brother told me this stuff a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…AND THESE ARE HIS GOLDEN RULES THAT I HAVE APPLIED. Before I learned these rules…I was a loser. These tenants turned my whole world around so fast…it was unreal. Now…I am a winner, not a loser.
    #1…Never hit anyone in anger unless you are absolutely sure you can get away with it. #2…ANTICIPATE THE WORST, BUT HOPE FOR THE BEST.
    #3…Always BE PREPARED…MEANING…be ahead of the game and keep THEM guessing. Never EVER put yourself in a situation where THEY keep YOU guessing…that is no way to live. If you have a job like this…walk in tomorrow and QUIT.
    #4…Never watch The View and you will die a happy man.
    #5…Always remember to strike first, strike hard and show no mercy.
    #6…Never be in awe of anyone. You see someone hot…keep it in your pants and act like you have had way, way hotter.
    #7…Never ever EVER move to Arizona…under any circumstances. Holy God that would be the biggest mistake of your entire life.
    #8…If a woman orders some foo-fee foo-fee elaborate drink and is degrading the waitress with her hyper-specific order and has NO FRIENDS…and her car is some piece of crap…and she never shows up on time…She is a cluster fcuk train wreck of a human being…so GET RID OF HER QUICK AND RUN FOR YOUR FukING LIFE.
    #9…Believers become achievers. Believe in yourself, or NO ONE will EVER believe in YOU.
    #10…When you are hoping to score…put on ‘Animal Magnetism’ by the Scorpions. If she does not like it…GET RID OF HER.
    #11…If you want someone to like you…completely ignore them.
    #12…Blaze a path for others to follow…never tag along. Do your own thing and people will follow you. Never be a sheeple. There is enough of those pathetic people wasting space all over the world. Lead.
    #13…Do not waste your time on the Chicago Cubs. Hit a few games…have fun with it…but never ever take it too seriously. Never ever allow yourself to watch them in the playoffs. That will keep you sane…and keep you from a becoming a broken down, broken-hearted depressed and pathetic Cubs fan…carrying a W sign into the park and claiming “next year is our year” and/or “You gotta believe”…etc. Trust me on this…just go to Wrigley…have a few beers and point and laugh at them when they make errors or K on 3 pitches out of the strike zone…or do not know how many outs there are…etc. Just have fun. Never take them seriously…I am telling you this for your own good.
    #14…Delete your Facebook account. Dumbest waste of time in history. Stay off that damn site…idiots. It is like rap music…it is just a “passing fad”.
    #15…Never take signs into a concert or a game…unless you want to look like a fcuking dope.
    #16…Boxers…not briefs. You want that sperm count to be unaffected. Let it all hang out.
    #17…”Free ball it” on Saturday nights. No underwear…it is so rejuvenating.

    • NOPE

  • Jo

    Take a good hard look at your girl/boyfriend’s mother/father, and see how she/he treats her/his husband/wife. That is what she/he will look like in ten years, and how she/he will treat you after the relationship grows old. Is that what you want to live with indefinitely?

  • 33th st. lonely man

    Stay away from a woman you like too much, don’t try to get to her heart by giving her your friendship, or at the end she only will take yourself for confidante.

  • nice collection ,

    mine
    doing something which make you be better

    life is simple

  • Elizabeth

    Ok here’s something simple

    Remember, if someone is annoying you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, but it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and BIATCH SLAP THAT MOTHERFukER

    Always remember this. It will serve you well.

  • Darin

    First off, #1 is completely wrong. If it were true that, “You can be whatever you want to be,” we’d live in a world of nothing by astronaunts and balerinas and no-one would be fat, disabled, or stupid.

    You’ve got to play the hand you’re dealt, but it is worthwhile to make the most of it.

    Now the “final destination” of everyone’s life is death, so slow down, relax, and enjoy the ride.

    Best advice I ever got was from my uncle, Keith: If you’ve got time to do it twice, you’ve got time to do it right the first time.

    • Dick Danger

      Fat is a choice, being disabled is frequently a result of a choice and while “stupid” can’t be cured, with work it can be improved upon by counteracting ignorance.

      The point is that most people, that is, 90%+ don’t really believe they can be anything, so they don’t try. Even if you were born with a crippling disability, truly believing that you can do anything will make you achieve over and above what you would if you didn’t believe.

      Most people aren’t so dumb as to believe that they can literally “be anything”. The trick is to use the inspiration derived from the belief to go above and beyond the ordinary.

      • yebo

        I can see that you are one of the idiots just talking out of your ass, I knew that from your first sentence.

  • Cal

    Don’t stick your dick in crazy

  • Erik

    It is better to be thought of as a fool than to speak up and remove all doubt. So if you don’t know something shut your piehole.

  • GoblinTown

    Always know where your towel is.

  • Nik

    When I was in the Navy, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, I had a Chief once who told me, “the best way to keep your nose clean is to keep your head out of your ass.” I’ll never forget that. In 25 years, every single time I can remember having trouble, it wouldn’t have happened if I had done things prudently.

  • john

    “always look for a wife with wide hips and a mistress with thin ankles”

  • Miranda

    “Always remember the goal of an argument is to find a solution, not to win. So, when you (inevitably) argue with your spouse, hold their hand to remind you that they are, in fact, still the person you love & not someone you’re trying to destroy in a war.”

    • Pro99ers

      Like A Lot! That is a Rule for Life. “If u avoid an argument you never find a solution.”

  • TC

    He who runs in front of car gets tired.

  • John

    He who runs behind car gets exhausted.

  • Arnie

    Don’t sweat the petty things.
    Don’t pet the sweaty things.

  • Curly

    Rule of thumb while hiring:
    Hire hard……..Manage easy.
    Hire easy……..Manage hard.

    fcuking words to live by

  • Anony

    A lot of these no longer apply, with the current economy, state of the world, etc.

    The most important one–which is being used less and less every second (hence the state of the planet)–is: “Treat others as you would like to be treated.”

    • ND52

      That’s utterly asinine.

  • Gina

    Never take advice from someone who’s not where you want to be.

  • Jez

    never mess with someone who hates you. no matter what you do, they will always hate you.

  • Craig

    1. Don’t worry about the small things.
    2. They are all small things.

  • Think before you speak, only a fool speaks before he thinks

  • HealthyWealthy&Wise

    Never pass up the opportunity to take a leak.

  • Pel

    The most valuable thing you can buy with money is the ability to never have to worry about money.

  • Pel

    One of the problems with government is that it thinks spending $10 to avoid wasting $1 is both a wise investment and sound public policy.

    The validity of an argument is not affected by how loudly it is shouted, the number of times it is repeated, the number of people doing the shouting or the number of rock concerts held to support it.

    Never demonstrate competence at any activity which you don’t want to do again.

    Political correctness is nothing more than a Jihad against common sense.

    If a million people believe in a stupid idea – its still a stupid idea.

    Marx was wrong in his famous quotation: “Religion is the opiate of the masses”. In fact, as modern events have demonstrated, it should be “Government is the opiate of the masses”.

    Politics requires knowledge of a diverse range of fields from political taxonomy to economics to philosophy to psychology to history (lots of history!). And, to understand politics one has to couple extensive knowledge with a practical appreciation of what can and cannot be done. As such, when pondering political opinions, never trust anyone under 30.

    Ever notice how the easiest way to deceive some people is to tell them the absolute truth?

    Blondes – the other white meat.

  • On Women:

    You can’t shake the whore tree expecting an angel to fall out.

    A good man might be able to sleep with a ton of women, but only a great man will be faithful to one.

    You may lose a lot of money chasing women, but you will NEVER lose women chasing money.

    Women are like dog poo. The older they are, the easier they are to pick up.

    On Life (in General):

    Scan your own sector.

    This too shall pass.

    Somewhere between cockiness and confidence lies mojo. Walking that line is the key to success.
