BUT HE WORKED LIKE SUPER HARD THOUGH
The ongoing debate about whether to attend school or not continues almost each and everyday. To plainly nip the problem in the bud, YOU DO NOT NEED SCHOOL TO SUCCEED. That is extremely generally speaking though because the main people who stick by that rhetoric are more often than not lazy and don’t put in the necessary work to succeed.
The main argument people use is the “Bill Gates Dropped Outta Harvard” stance. That stance is extremely flawed for several reasons. After more life experience and hearing about how Microsoft came about, it was revealed to me that Bill had access to early innovative tech before anyone, you realize that first you gotta have the ability to even get in Harvard, then you gotta spend all your time working and not having a life.
People say they don’t need school but don’t put the hours on hours on hours on hours on hours on hours into creating, failing, failing , failing , failing, failing, failing, creating, sweating, failing, innovating, etc.
People expect to cut corners and get it quick and never realize how they are setting themselves up to lose. People who would always be adamant about NOT going to school, I would always remind them “Aye that 4 years is going on anyway might as well put it to use.” Then people make arguments about not having debt and I always thought like why is you worried about debt and you already broke lol.
I even thought about how the success of fictional characters embraced the idea of working super duper hard. Like in the anime NARUTO, the two strongest characters NARUTO and SASUKE trained the hardest out of everyone, nonstop and reaped the benefits. However on paper they’re rank as ninjas is still the lowest because they never passed the exam required to move up in ninja ranking. The feat of being the strongest is even more amazing for Naruto because is also the leader of his village. The leader of the village often attains the highest ninja rank before becoming the nation’s chosen leader.
Even though they are anime characters they are prime examples of people who didn’t take a traditional route and still succeeded. But like I vocalized throughout this article don’t shun school or any form of education unless you’re going to outwork everyone that’s enrolled in school by at least a 100 times!
