The right way in life is a way that few kids try to follow, but is the only way that leads to a successful career. It's the hardest way to go trough life, but the rewards given back are worth the effort. This way starts to be followed in school, goes through college and ends in a big company that offers a huge income.
This kind of road is a clean road, without drugs to ruin your state of mind. It's fun in some ways, but you must focus your atention to study, not to have fun all the time, because when you start having a lot of fun you can exaggerate and end up high or drunk. If you experience all that and you like it, it's a very short road until you end up a meaningless person that doesn't have any future. If you want to become someone, you will have to live in a place made for studying, with quiet rooms and libraries with lots of books that can help your studies. It's hard for a person to find those kind of places, because few colleges have those facilities, most of them with an international reputation and tradition.
Choosing to work hard to make something of yourself is a thing that must be supported by someone: in most of the cases it is the family, friends or just people that believe in you. They must support you moraly and financially so that you can chase your dream in peace, with nobody interfering between you and the bright future ahead. So, if you want a bright future, you must stay away from fun and get to study or work.
