Recipe for a successful life.
Do not have kids out of wedlock.
Find your match and marry. (preferably before the age of 30)
stay married. Do not let social media and the thousand evil pressures of the world break your bond.
Get your bachelor degree at the least...
with two stable incomes you will have a successful life. By success I don't mean rich. You will have a comfortable life but most of all you will find happiness within your family.
