    PLEASE READ --> Hi everyone, this is a completely different video than normal. Videos will resume back to normal on Monday with an EPIC video by Simon Sinek. I want to explain that College is a perfect solution to many, however to others it may not be a good fit. For myself, it was perfect, for one of my good friends, it wasn't a good fit. If you are currently in college, do not rely on that the piece of paper that you receive at the end to get you far, it is your own commitment and perseverance that will get you far. College is one of the best places on earth to develop networking connections with fellow students and professors, as well as create experiences that are extremely valuable. I want to emphasise that you don't need to go to the best and most expensive school to get the best education or be successful. My advice is to BECOME INVOLVED, make friends with as many people as possible, help others, and be true to yourself. I REPEAT, this is not a video saying that College is useless, but rather we put too much emphasis on a piece of paper, thinking that a degree is going to catapult us to great success. Make the most out of your time, go out there and make connections with other people, and take risks!

    I wonder if they ever employed a single person without a college degree or certificate. That how much useless it is. The idea of becoming an entrepreneur or businessman is not gonna work for everyone. Most successful people will not even tell you the truth about their success.

    I think the key word here is *BUSINESS*. If you're wanting to be a childcarer, you still need training. Nursing? Training. Psychologist? Training. But they're right, a lot of industries need a whole different approach to learning. Even things like being a programmer or engineer can be jobs you get by being self-taught.

    I feel like I had to see this. I’m not going to college but being a senior in high school you are constantly being pushed to go to college and are put down if you say you are not. I’m not going to lie I have been a follower for most of my life but this is one thing I knew . I knew that college is not for me. I have a plan after college and this motivates me to keep pushing toward my goals and to not listen to my peers. Think for yourselves everyone, You are the one who will live with your choices.

    I am 17 right now and I’m about to graduate in 2020 and I already hate high school with a passion😂. So tbh at this point I don’t even think of attending a single second in college. I am just unfortunate and not academically blessed. Im barley passing high school with my grades as of now. and college just sounds beyond my ability. all of my life throughout education I’ve struggled academically since I was knee high so therefore I was forced to be put into special classes because I couldn’t pass regular classes like everyone else. it’s sad that society is based on u needing to have academic intelligence to have a well off career/job that pays well. and to be successful without a college degree Is nearly impossible especially in the society we live in today.

    Here's what you learn in highschool/ college? learn how to learn, you learn social skills, you find your limitations and strengths.......YOU LEARN ABOUT YOURSELF AND OTHERS!!!!.....only point of education is to "get you on your path".....your learnin' ain't over once you's just the damn beginnin'........ Do not listen to JayZ or Zuckerburg.....those guys just got lucky and that's all......Eellon Musk is full of himself........while there are many who made millions even off, lets say, the "CLAPPER", what kind of society would we have if we all dropped out of the education system? seems like when these guys make their money they instantly become "thrice removed" from reality ..... I don't buy JayZ music, I ain't on FaceBook, and I aint never going to Mars (niether is Musk!!!!)......I REST MY CASE!!!....LOL

    Grades are just a way for people to think it’s acceptable to label the ones who aren’t good at certain things. It’s the same principle as labelling in different real world issues but in the education environment. Everyone learns in their own time, everyone’s better than others at some things. Just can’t compare fairly if grades mattered really. 🤷‍♂️

    05:17 - 05:59 is my favorite and agreed upon comment. It's a decisive statement rather. Good Luck!
