What Advice Would You Give Your Teenage Self?

If you could travel back in time, and somehow NOT destroy the present and cause the rise of the machines, what would you tell yourself as a teenager?

A new survey asked people what ONE piece of advice they wish they could go back and give to themselves as a teenager. And it had to be vague life advice, not like, “Invent Google.” Here are the top 10…

1. Get a better education, 16%.
2. Be bolder and stronger reaching for your goals, 11%.
3. Plan better for the future, 9%.
4. Relationship advice, 7%.
5. Slow down, and take it easy, 6%.
6. Live life to the fullest, 5%.
7. Be true to yourself, 5%.
8. Don’t do dumb things, 4%.
9. Don’t drink, smoke, take drugs, or party, 4%
10. Listen to your parents and respect your elders, 3%.

And 1% of people say their life has been perfect, no advice necessary.
