Education is a process of imparting skills, knowledge, values in a formal setting and then evaluating students’ knowledge to check their progress. This is done to look for a suitable job and make a successful career. However, when we see many school dropouts making successful ventures we debate whether education really helps in making a great career and is the key to successful future?
Read here as we discuss both the aspects.
Yes, education is the key to success: Education makes us aware of knowledge, skills, ethics that has been there in the world which we learn as it helps us to progress and develops further. Without education, we cannot read or write and that would mean that we will be deprived of valuable information and wisdom that can make us very successful.
Every individual is born with a set of certain qualities, aptitude, thoughts, and creativity. But all these together are useless if they are not guided by proper education which can be received by formal education at school, college/ university as these institutes provide us with the learning that helps us to keep up with the highly competitive professional world.
No doubt that to be successful hard work is must but without education, it will not yield any results. Education makes people more aware not only of the world but about themselves too and when you know your strengths you can easily take the right path to a successful career.
There is an old saying, “If you give a man a fish you feed him for a day; teach a man how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” That is where education makes a difference.
No, education is not required to achieve success: Education is not necessary to achieve success. Success depends on an individual’s capacity to use his talent and creativity in most effective manner.
Even if you are uneducated, or have received a very little education even then you can achieve great success in life by putting your skills in the right place and the right time.
It is true that education might get you respect from the society but in the end, it is neither the society nor the respect it might give you that will make you. It is your own will and determination and it does not require formal education to be successful.
There are so many examples of highly successful entrepreneurs who either did not go to school or received a very little education but with their skills, determination, and hard work they made successful careers.
Education might be important for some and might have been accepted as a social obligation but it does not guarantee that you will be successful with whatever you have received by spending so much time at the educational institutions. You can communicate effectively so that is enough education, i.e. you can write, read, and are not dependent on others for these needs will be sufficient.
You should follow your passions in life and education will only limit your avenues.
