12 Feb Street sense is equivalent when it comes to formally educated.
I get a kick out of the category of people who must always place the initials MD beside their name like they’re more valuable. It’s as though their education got to their head. Although it may seem to appear extravagant in the lifestyle of a doctor, in reality the average ‘overly confident in their formal education’ individual rings it in as quite pathetic. In fact, I instantly know to stray away from these types of individuals because I know they are narcissistic at best — their personal image means a little too much to them.
Yes becoming a doctor is quite an achievement but there are achievements of a similar realm in every industry. This includes professional workers in every culture across the globe. And probably the biggest question in relation to education amongst these people is that neither of them are superior, at least when it comes down to a pay check.
Some of the highest paid individuals are under-educated salesmen. Although when you look at it as a whole, we are all sales people; we earned our mates, our jobs and careers through selling ourselves.
It may be presented in movies, television and on the radio that a formally paid education is the best route to succeed. That would seem obvious to anyone, but when it comes to the reality of the equation, when you look at all the millionaires; the people that would be looked at as successful in this current societal stand front you’d come to a similar comparison to the educated achievers versus the non-educated achievers; it doesn’t require education to become successful. When it comes to the masses education wasn’t the primary reason behind their successes, imagination and confidence was.
There’s an equal amount of opportunity regardless of the education you have. This may sound ridiculous and difficult to comprehend at first but you need to look at both sides of the equation.
1. Countless amount of people get turned down from employment they are overqualified for. Sometimes being more than qualified isn’t in your favor.
2. Often times blue collared individuals are inferior to an overly formal educated individual and people stray from them because they aren’t looking to pay a premium price for their education/credentials. When times are tough educated people are forced to acquire blue coloured employment. It’s not always best to place that MD beside your name.
3. All the millionaires in the world aren’t educated. In fact, many of them barely have high school education. Some of the most influential people including celebrity are not formally educated.
If you were to look at everyone in all the countries of the world amongst all the 7 billion people (at least the ones above 18) you’d come to realize that very few of their accomplishments relied solely on their education. In fact, most of the influentially creative individuals who most of us aspire to aren’t formally educated. They would attest themselves that education was not a crucial part of achieving their successes nor are they motivated to acquire this type of education in the future. Education was simply not a requirement in their field of business to succeed.
Street sense is as equal as formal education in all avenues. It just comes at a different cost. I’m not saying education is a bad thing. In fact, education has definitely helped influential individuals excel beyond their means, especially in the political world, and those who seek a formal education so long as you’re equipped with the confidence to strive for success in the field of your study education is a wonderful thing however literally most of us strive for an education and we either give it up or we strive for something else.
Studies prove the average individual doesn’t find their true calling our passion until after acquiring five or more careers.
Although education will help an individual to troubleshoot obstacles along the way, and it’ll help him/her land a job when it comes to qualifications, it will not provide a stable imagination nor will it tell you how to land the job.
Street sense in comparison to the formally educated is just as good of an option so long as you are following a path of enjoyment. It takes confidence and inner will — your utmost determination to be situated in front of your future boss who is interviewing plenty of candidates and actually win the opportunity, not so much education.
The most confident and imaginative are the ones who land the job.
