He advises him to be true to himself, even at times when people don't concur with his opinions, to stick to what one firmly believes in, and not succumb to societal pressure.
To thine own self be true bible
But, good my brother, Do not as some ungracious pastors do, Show me the steep and thorny way to heaven, Whiles, like a puff'd and reckless libertine, Himself the primrose path of dalliance treads And recks not his own rede. Most humbly do I take my leave, my lord. The wind sits in the shoulder of your sail, And you are stay'd for. We are sure you will understand this part there was no scarcity of windbags even in the Elizabethan period! If you borrow someone else's money to buy a bunch of cool new stuff, you're really just pretending you can afford all that stuff, since the money wasn't yours to begin with. Beware Of entrance to a quarrel; but being in, Bear't that th' opposed may beware of thee.

Yep, we thought so.
A double blessing is a double grace; Occasion smiles upon a second leave. For Hamlet, and the trifling of his favour, Hold it a fashion, and a toy in blood; A violet in the youth of primy nature, Forward, not permanent- sweet, not lasting; The perfume and suppliance of a minute; No more.
