The baseline comes down to one thing, cultivating your skills and knowledge into success. Hard work and determination is one key to turning your skills into a worthwhile venture. Look around, how many successful people do you know? And how many actually thrive in the non academic field?
You’ll realize that even the most renowned successful individuals actually have their success associated with non education ventures. They are everywhere, in the fields of sports, creativity, fitness, design etc. Now assuming these people sat on their skills and felt sorry for their educational challenges, they’d probably never have made it!
Even though they discovered that they were indeed skillful in one field or the other, hard work is a common framework in their stories. Sportsmen had to practice day in, day out. Designers had to try this and that before they finally came out with the perfect design.
Fitness guides had to work their customer relations to get referrals and so on. This chain of determination and hard work is often the only way to success. Don’t even let that highly educated guy tell you otherwise. Chances are they had to work really hard to climb the administration ladder, and if they didn’t, they’re probably where they started!
So success comes down to determination, hard work and focus. You really don’t have to have the highest of education standards. You can still succeed despite educational challenges. What counts is whether you are able to turn your best of skills, knowledge and talent into a success story.
