Getting good education doesn’t necessarily translate to becoming successful. Education does give you a good platform to build a strong foundation, but it does not help shape your foundation. To make it big in life you don’t have to attend the most expensive school or college, all you need is self belief. While many elders in different parts of the world may refer to school or college dropouts as “good for nothing fools”, the fact remains that a large number of dropouts have been the most successful persons in their chosen profession.

While not many may consider dropping out of school

or college if they have the means and money to educate themselves, research reveals that a high number of successful school and college dropouts actually did have the money to pursue education, but chose not, in order to pursue other interests. Most successful school and college dropouts quit studies… to put in their entire effort in one direction, what they loved to do and pursue. While it makes sense to chase your passion, not everybody in this world pursue their line of liking. Expectations, peer pressure can lead us to steer our life in a different direction.

It’s sad some sorry folks from different parts of the world judge you based on your education and profession. Why do some people look down upon individuals who have dropped out of school or college? Are you right in judgment? Do you even have authority to judge? Its best you concentrate on your life rather than scrutinize, analyze and talk about what others have done or achieved.

Do dropouts set good examples for others? Perspective to this question varies in the train of thought. All the education and degrees is not going to take you anywhere if you do not have a vision and mission. The drive to get somewhere makes people successful. If this drive is not present, dropout or a scholar you will be stuck in a rut. Here is a list of school dropouts and college dropouts that made it big.

    I have completed my bachelors and I want to continue but to be frank, being in a classroom is not my thing. My experience is that the tutors spend more time taking about things not relating to the subject at hand for most of the period and then get to the subject in the last 20 minutes of the class. I would love to just get to the topic from the beginning of the class and learn as much as possible. Maybe I will continue my education online.
