What's up guys, it's Eliot here. Welcome to today's video
A lot of you guys know me as someone who tries to be hardworking and productive with my life
But I wasn't always this way and in high school, I wasn't a great student in today's video
We're gonna throw it back to my high school days
And I'm gonna talk about how I was the biggest procrastinator ever and I'm gonna share some of my biggest highschool regrets
Though I'm gonna grab some food because it's the weekend and weekend food is really good
Before I talk about my terrible habits in high school, let me give you some background
I went to a huge high school with over
5,000 students and it was somewhat competitive a lot of my friends were super smart and they ended up going to amazing schools and
Actually being surrounded by high achieving friends kind of made me less motivated
I'm not sure if you guys can relate but in the competitive environment of high school
I thought that even if I tried my hardest I could never be on the same
Level as some of my friends and for that reason I never really gave a hundred percent towards my score
I wasn't a bad student necessarily, but I definitely wasn't a great one
I got decent grades, but I had terrible study habits, especially during my freshman and sophomore year of high school
I know a lot of students struggle with this, but I was a huge procrastinator
I would get home from school and watch shows and YouTube videos and I wouldn't start my work until late at night
I had terrible self control and I knew I was making bad decisions, but I just kept making them
I also played games on my computer and that took hours of my life and
It was really bad because I couldn't control myself but you get the point. I was basically a huge procrastinator
I was sleeping at 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning constantly stressed tired, and it was just unhealthy. I really regret
Procrastinating in high school because I was just chasing this false sense of happiness
Which was actually just pleasure pleasure is a momentary feeling that doesn't last the games
I played or the shows I watch might have made me happy for a few minutes
But in the long run it actually made me less happy because it kept me from achieving my goals
Take it from me looking back on the shows. I watched with the games
I played those things did not contribute anything meaningful to my life if I could go back in time
I would definitely just finish my work right after school
And I'd have the freedom to do whatever I want for the rest of my day now
I'm not saying you shouldn't find time to relax
But do all that stuff
After you finish your work so that you can actually enjoy it and you won't have that nagging feeling in the back of your mind
Where you know that you have other things to be doing I see hasn't worked in ages
I can probably read the label busy fucking on the
coffee table
Although I can't actually go back in time
What I can do is improve my habit and focus on being the best version of myself
I think I've really started to change my habit my senior year of high school when I realized that I did have a problem now
reason that I'm sharing my story of failure as a high school student is because I've really changed my lifestyle and I'm much happier with
How I live my life
I can now confidently say that I'm proud of the way that I lived my life and I definitely could not say that back in
High school the main message behind this video is that you can change bad habits
And if you're not happy with the way you're living your life right now
Then it can be as simple as making the decision to change
I really wish I had someone in high school to tell me that I was screwing up and if I can just inspire one person
To really change their lifestyle in a positive way through this video
Then that means everything to me and that's it for today's video. If you enjoyed it, please drop a like and I'll see you guys
