Does earning a college degree really matter when the most successful people today where college dropouts? Mark Zuckerberg left Harvard with his dual majored course in Computer Science and Psychology, Bill Gates also a Harvard drop out, and we all know that Steve Jobs never earned a college degree.
I know a few who give this analogy as an excuse for leaving school. My question for you then is what makes you preoccupied after deciding on leaving school?
These three personalities didn't left their universities to neither to get drunk with friends all day nor to party all night but they left school out of their passion to innovate like developing Facebook, founding the Microsoft and developing the Macintosh.
What about you?
Do you intensify your strategies on clash of clans and strengthen your characters on various console games as the strong and successful alter ego of yourself or do you spend your time enhancing your skills on things that you're not so-good at like improving your vocabulary through reading and blog-writing or by simply improving yourself by learning new skills like baking or driving?
I'm not saying that there's no chance of success at all for an average mind with no college degree. I agree that success comes to people who take risk like people who take their chances by entering the show business or by hoping that their uploaded YouTube video will get to the trending page. However, if you put your thoughts into this, greater opportunities comes to the ones who have completed schooling especially if you're living in a country with traditional employment system is being practiced. On the other hand, if you know that you possess an exemplary entrepreneurial skill might as well go for it and start up your own business after carefully planning it.
Clearly success comes with or without education but it is also evident that success comes to people who helped themselves reached their dreams. Quitting school out of laziness will definitely lead you nowhere. What matter is the step you take after quitting school or while you’re in a “for the meantime job” like working at McDonald’s. It's true that knowledge is power so whether you're out of school by choice or not, one must not stop learning new skills to constantly improve yourself as a person for a greater chance of success. It's just a matter of proper motivation and valuing oneself.
