High School Failure... To Multi-Millionaire.



I REALLY struggled to get good grades in school.


And you know what's hilarious?


I make WAY more money than all the peers I went to school with!


While I'm not 100% against University - I want to make a case on why it's not alwasy the end all be all.


Have you ever thought about how school might limit your career options, make you more submissive to authority, and make you think in a linear way?


If not, you should definitely think about it.



Your career isn't even guaranteed...


As someone who went through the traditional education system (high school in Ontario), I can confirm that some of these problems are real.


Se, the job market is always changing, which means that the skills and knowledge learned in school might not always be useful or in demand.


In the traditional education system, students often have to specialize in one subject, which can limit their options in the future.


For instance, if I had majored in engineering, people might have thought I would work in that field.


But what if I found out later that I really like something else, like art or marketing?


These skills are not really that transferrable,


If I don't have the right skills or experience, it can be hard to make a change.



School makes you compliant


Another problem with school is that it can teach kids to be more obedient.


We're taught to follow rules and do what we're told from a young age, often without asking why.


This can make it hard for us to think for ourselves and make choices on our own as adults.


It's important to learn how to think critically and question the status quo, but these skills aren't always emphasised in the traditional education system.


Also, traditional schools often teach students to think in steps, where each step must be finished before moving on to the next.


This method can work in some situations, but it may not always work in the real world, where problems and challenges are often more complicated and require creative and new ways of thinking.


This can make it hard for students to adapt to new situations and think outside the box.


Conclusion

In the end, school can teach you a lot of useful information and skills, but it's important to remember that it has its limits.


As someone who went to a traditional school, I can say with certainty that this is true.


You should think about how your education might affect your career options and your ability to think for yourself and come up with creative solutions.


You should keep learning and grow throughout your life, and you shouldn't be afraid to question the way things have always been done.
