    Don't surround yourself with people who make everything about themselves :yep:
    I know a few people like this. I have distanced myself from them and my life has been much more positive since!

    Stay true to yourself, be who you want to be and never let anyone change that.

    There's a difference between seeing the best in people and trusting them blindly- stay the right side of this line.

    Remember what can be given can be taken away. That doesn't mean don't give things though!

    2) Don't chase the money, chase the dream (cringes)
    3) Stay positive, meet positive people, move on from those who exude negativity

    Not sure if this has been said already, but:

    Some things are worth letting go of, and it's sometimes easier to just let the other person win. You know if you're right or not.

    This may sound quite random and cliché but I have advice to those who want to become millionaires, it's not exactly 'my' advice but it's good.
    I'm not millionaire however I read some bits from a book recommended to me by a friend named 'rich dad, poor dad'- something along those lines and the author is a very successful, wealthy man. I'm not all for materialism but I was quite curious and learnt a lot...would definitely recommend you read it.
    Overall he said how his 'poor dad' would advice him to finish high school, go to college (university) to get a degree and to find a stable job while his 'rich dad' advised him to finish high school, open a business and go and get work experience, finding a mentor in the field he is interested in. He explained how his 'poor dad' was all for stability which is good as with this route, a person is more likely to be financially stable however this means you would always work for someone else in order to make their own dreams true instead of your own meaning becoming a millionaire is impossible. He said 'rich dad' though his route was risky, it would be his own dream that he would be living and that this was truly the only way to become millionaire unless you miraculously win the lottery. This is so true, if you compare the small percentage of society who are millionaires to the rest of society, in terms of their professions and what they do, it's extremely evident that the rich own things i.e a business, are self employed compared to other hard working citizens.
    I learnt how not being in your comfort zone can often lead to great things. Sometimes we need to take risks as we don't know the outcome- though it may turn out bad it may also turn out good. And that 'bad' doesn't mean the end, get up and try again.

    And one more thing. This is more personal to me as it's something I had learnt after repeating my first year of year 12.
    My failure wasn't 'repeating year 12' but having the mentality that no matter how hard I may try, I wouldn't be able to learn the material because I believed my subjects to be 'too hard' and because my GCSEs weren't all A* I had 'poor' GCSE results. This led to my downfall because it made me not study due to insecurities. I actually believed I would be wasting my time by trying, making excuses so I could feel sorry for myself such as your school is bad so you're screwed. Though my school was bad, others managed to pull it through.
    The reality is, it was also me and if not me. If any one currently thinks this about themselves in terms of what I used to think about myself, it is a lie. You have the potential-if you work hard enough, not giving up, trust me you will be successful. Success doesn't necessarily mean A grades but success in regards to your character! My dear, you will grow and realise that failure is only if you defeated yourself before anything even began, not trying at all. What hurt me the most wasn't that U in a subject but knowing why and how I got there. If I worked very hard and still got U, I wouldn't have felt so down to where I almost become depressed as I would know I did all I can to do well. Just know, if you don't stop trying until exams season is over, pulling through all the way to the end- you're a champion...
