So I followed just that. Studied hard, do my 10-year series of exam papers (or did I do 20-year series), got good grades, graduated with a first class honours and a decent job that brings me into middle class.
Robert Kiyosaki, in his top-seller book Rich Dad, Poor Dad, mentioned that those who study alot are more likely to get a stable and good pay job and end up as a worker for the rest of his life. And like many of you, I'm one.
I'm sure many of us has seen plenty of less educated guys succeed with growing business empires. My sifu in particular, started off as a security guard and is now a businessman with vast business network.
Put it bluntly, those guys has less to lose, and thus bigger balls than the well-educated.
Education by itself will never be a sole factor for financial success. You don't need to be good at accounts to open an accounting firm - you just have to hire smart people who wants to "play safe", rather than starting their own business.
I don't recall our Datuk Tony Fernandes knowing how to drive a plane.
Sales techniques, motivational skills, EQ etc...
These are life lessons not taught in school. They are lessons around us waiting to be discovered.
To be frank guys, do you all really like everything that is taught in school?
Despite the amount of time I have spent on studies, I have never really been a big fan of studying, the only thing I do enjoy are the attention that fellow female classmates shower me for helping them out in tutorials. =p
On the very same day I left university, I told myself never to go back in again. No more learning theoretical stuffs that mean little in real-life.
Its time to learn life skills.
And spend more time with the loved ones.
