1. DEVELOP A CLEAR CUT AIM
First, you must form a correct conception of how you wish to develop and perfect yourself. You must cultivate a clear-cut idea of what you want to become. This will give you a definite and clear-cut aim in life.
2. DRAW UP A WISE PROGRAMME
The second important thing is to draw for yourself a wise programme of life to help you to develop along the desired lines and to gradually attain the aim of life A proper understanding of your own mind, its behaviour and habits, and the law that governs the inner activity of the mind become very, very helpful in living this wonderful and interesting period of your life.
3. GUARD YOUR HEALTH
Without health you can succeed neither in studies, nor in character-building, nor in sports and social activities, nor in home-life. Health is a matter of careful living. It is got not only from things you eat and drink, but it is also obtained from your wise and careful avoiding of such things that are not good for your health
4. CONSERVE YOUR ENERGY
Never waste your energy in useless pursuits. Give up, all habits that have an adverse effect on health. those drain away your energy.
5. VALUE CHARACTER

Ask Him for inner strength and guidance. Cultivate constant remembrance of God by seeing His invisible presence in and through all things in this universe around you. God is not some remote reality far away from you. But God is here and now.
8. REFLECT UPON IDEAL PERSONALITIES

Out of your life there must flow out ceaseless love, kindness, and compassion. Never hurt anyone. Help Ever.
10. BE ABSOLUTELY TRUTHFUL
Even at the cost of your life, never utter falsehood. Never be dishonest in any of your dealings with anyone in this world. Be a person of integrity, of verity
11. SERVE OTHERS
The vexing problems of this modern world, its clashes and conflicts, its greed and exploitation, its hatred and hostilities, its mad craze for selfish acquisition will never cease or be relieved until and unless there is a change of outlook in man towards his neighbours and towards his life around him. Man makes life what it is. And life around man is but a reflection of what he is.
12. THINK NOBLY
As you think, so you will become, just as you reap what you sow. Your inner thoughts are the seeds of your ultimate destiny. More than all the books that you read and study, more than all your lessons and examinations, more important than everything in life is the cultivation of virtue.
